Open corner bifolding and sliding doors are one of the most dramatic and bold ways of creating a new extension. As well as this, the fully open corner reveals two open sides on warmer days. Visually appealing and highly desirable.
We explain a little more about open corner bifolding and sliding doors. See how they bring this popular new extension design to life.
Bring an extension to life with open corner bifolding and sliding doors
Whether you choose the fully open nature of bifolding doors or want the larger panels of contemporary patio sliding doors. Both come with the option of an open corner or cornerless design.
These doors mainly suit new extensions where the weight of the roof is properly supported. If you’re looking for this design with a fully open edge to the build, it’s incorporated at the very start. It’s not usually carried out with an existing structure.
Crucially, getting an open corner design means having the roof above providing all the essential structural support. One option is the cantilevered roof.
Another way to get the open corner look is having an internal supporting post inside the room. These are often design features in themselves. You can clad them in colour matched aluminium, or paint the existing steel in a contrasting colour. Which option you choose depends on the size of the room and your own design wishes.
The good news is, open corner bifolding and sliding doors meet both these requirements. Do also seek out the services of a good builder and structural engineer. They specialise in calculating the tolerances, designs and correct calculations too.

Of course, they look impressive as a wide open corner. However, it’s also possible to start with a simple two panel arrangement on each side. Some designs go even smaller.
With all our doors, there’s the flexibility in use of regular doors. For instance, bifolding doors come with the option of a master or traffic door. This design lets you use your bifolds just like a regular door. One leaf opens as normal
