Automatic Bi-Fold Doors
Folding doors are exactly what they sound like – doors that literally fold, providing an entryway or exit way, and saving space in the process. Bi-fold doors, in comparison, are those folding doors that fold twice instead of just once. These doors are typically designed for large entryways, and are particularly popular in commercial buildings.
What Are Automatic Bi-fold Doors?
Automatic bi-fold doors—which typically rely on sensors to detect a person’s presence, thereby opening—are a fantastic option for commercial properties that want to improve foot traffic flow, aesthetic value, and efficiency. These doors utilize a track to move doors effortlessly from the closed to open position and back again.
