Overlap Garage Doors
About our bifold garage doors
The latest innovation in garage doors
Featuring a horizontal ‘break’ across the middle of the door, these clever bifolding garage doors help you enjoy your garage to the full – and look easy on the eye, too. They can also be a nifty solution for garages where space is at a premium, or obstructions mean other kinds of doors can’t be fitted. The overall result is a neat, tidy appearance – and plenty of space. In fact, you can even park your vehicle right up to the door.
How bifold garage doors work
A relatively new design on the scene, overlap or bifold garage doors operate similarly to sectional garage doors. They’re built of two sections which are hinged together, which effectively makes the door ‘fold in half’ in your roof space. It’s then stored in the upper beam of the door frame – meaning there’s no need for ceiling rails. It’s engineering ingenuity at its best – and shows that there’s still plenty of innovation to be had in the sector to meet modern needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
About bifolding garage doors
Why choose a garage bifolding door?
Because overlap garage doors use a system that sits within a frame, all the inner workings are hidden away – ideal for those that want their door to be discreet. The system itself is also compact, so if space is a concern, they can be a fantastic solution. A bi fold garage door can also offer thermal insulation, which helps regulate the temperature inside.
Can I get an insulated bifolding door for my garage?
Absolutely – which makes for a warmer garage in winter and a cooler one in hot weather. That’s good news for people who want to use their space as an additional room. And if your garage is attached to your house, you might see knock-on benefits to the warmth and thermal efficiency of your property, too.
What about costs?
Garage bi folding doors are a great choice in many homes – and a worthy investment. However, we don’t give general prices out because there’s so much to consider when designing yours, like the size, add-ons, finishes and more. If you want an exact cost, it’s a good idea to book a home visit, where our experts can talk you through the steps.
Do you offer manual bifolding doors?
Yes, we do – these incorporate a handle into the design. However, automation is designed to make life a little easier – so it’s worth factoring that into your decision, especially if you need frequent access to your garage. For these, you’ll have a remote control and can even pick features like keypads and lights.

Modern materials: From a realistic wood grain to a stone effect or embossed look, style it how you like.
Contemporary finishes: Grooved or smooth? Panelled or plain? The choice is yours.
