Posted: 24 Jun 2022

Roller Blinds for bifold doors are an efficient way to cover large expanses of glazing using only one or two blinds. Motorised roller blinds for folding doors are even simpler to control as you can adjust them without having to manually extend them.


Motorised Roller Blind Fabrics Available for Bifold Doors

Almost all of our roller blind fabrics can be made with motorisation and we have a stunning range. You can opt for semi-transparent blinds that still allow light through or fully dim-out ones. So, you have complete control over your shading.

Additionally, you can customise your made to measure roller blinds even further with solar reflective fabric to keep out excess heat or an optional cassette to cover the rollers.

If you would like maximum shading, we also offer a dual solution. We offer blinds that fit into the frame of your door, such as our thermal Duette® range, so there’s almost no excess light peeking through the sides of your fitted blinds. In front of this, we would also install roller blinds so this combination blocks out almost all light from your glazing. This not only gives you an extra layer of insulation, but also means that you have complete flexibility over your shading: you can just close the blinds on a single door, or you can extend the roller blind down while the doors are open. If you would like to know your other options, you can what are the best blinds for bi-fold doors.

Why Roller Blinds are Great for Bifold Doors

We often use our roller blinds to cover large sets of doors as our wide roller blinds can cover multiple doors at once. This can be a cost-effective way to shade your home whilst still getting the high-quality of bespoke roller blinds. For unique doors like sliding or bifold doors, many people opt for roller blinds as we fit them just above the door and hang in front. This ensures your blinds don’t interrupt the folding mechanism and no loose wires tangle it. We would recommend roller blinds for those that wish to shade their room but leave their doors open behind to circulate fresh air.

By combining motorisation with bespoke roller blinds you can rest assured you have the neatest fit possible for your glazing as well as market-leading motorisation.
