Because of the way bifold doors tightly concertina together (when the doors are pushed open), they generally have to be fitted with a low profile blind solution.
Slimline or low-profile blinds like Clic or Neat-fit are specifically designed to fit into the recess of the window frame. These blinds are attached directly to the door and work as a single unit when the bifold doors are opened and closed.
Modern double-glazed doors are made from either highly durable uPVC or lightweight aluminium. The glass is normally double or triple glazed sealed panels that are secured with rubber seals into a recess in UPVC or aluminium frames.
Clic, Neat-fit and perfect fit blinds attach to the door with specially designed brackets that are secured in place by the rubber seals.
The design of these blinds means fitting requires no drilling. This means no holes need to be made in walls, window frames or door frames.
