Bi-folding doors are larger than most types of windows. This means their dimensions will often exceed industry standards for other window dressings. While you may be able to order curtains and blinds to the dimensions of your doors, they are simply not as bespoke as made-to-measure shutters. Not only do we manufacture our shutters to the size of your windows and doors, but we do so to the millimeter too. That means they sit flush to your recess, promising you the perfect fit every time.

Privacy and Light Management

Most of the surface area of bifold doors tends to be glass. This makes light and privacy management a key consideration when choosing the best dressing. With their moveable slats and optional features such as mid rails, bifold shutter doors give you the best control over brightness and who can see into your home.
