The ability to completely open up the corner of an extension or self-build can totally transform a project. Our SUNFLEX doors pioneered the moveable post technology that makes it possible.
We’ve been supplying bifold doors with open corners for 20 years, creating a real design statement in homes across the UK.
When corner bifold doors are closed, the minimal sightlines and large glass panels of our aluminium or timber-clad bifold doors provide a stylish appearance, but when the doors are opened up completely, the moveable corner post technology really comes into its own.
With a completely unobstructed corner, the divide between inside and out is seamless, providing you with an uninterrupted view out into your garden and beyond.
The option to add movable corner posts can be integrated with either SUNFLEX aluminium or timber clad aluminium bifold doors in either double or triple glazing.
The SF55s and SF75 aluminium systems provide a choice of contemporary square edge frames, minimal sightlines and unrivalled weather performance, with the SF75 also providing incredible thermal performance from just 0.8W/m²K (with a centre-pane of 0.5W/m²K). This makes it the most thermally efficient bifold door for use with open corner configurations.
Alternatively, you can select the SF55c or SF75c timber clad aluminium bifold doors which feature aluminium outer-frames with slim timber cladding on the internal face of the doors to provide the natural appeal of wood – ideal for more timber frame extensions or new builds.
The key to an open corner is having the structure in place to be able to support the roof above. Whether you opt for a completely cantilevered roof that provides an unobstructed corner or include an internal supporting post inside the doors will depend on the size and scale of your project.
You will likely need the assistance of a structural engineer and/or architect to provide designs and calculations. Open-corners are usually incorporated into a design from the very start of the build.
All SUNFLEX bifold doors are bottom running, making it easier for the structural calculation and providing greater tolerance at the head.
