What Are Standard Bi-fold Door Sizes? 

The size of your bi-fold door will entirely depend on the dimensions of the wall opening you’re working with. 

In terms of standard bi-fold door sizes, for an arrangement of even-numbered doors, a single leaf frame should be at least 28 inches wide.

If you’re looking to install an odd number of doors, each leaf should be at least 16 inches wide. 

Typical bi-fold doors are 80 inches in height. When considering how bi-fold doors will look in your home, you will also need to take into account the thickness of the door, including the width of the surrounding frames. 

In general, bi-fold door frames are 3 inches thick. Choosing aluminium doors will mean your frames can be incredibly slim, without compromising on strength. 

At Benchmark Windows, we’re proud to provide outstanding aluminium bi-fold doors, offering both aesthetic appeal and unmatched durability. To find out more about our bi-fold door sizes, contact a member of our team today.

Benefits of Installing Bifold Doors


Bifold doors are designed to enclose large glass panels. In most cases, individuals can choose between double or triple glazing, keeping excessive noise out and warmth in. 

Thermal Breaks

No matter the bi-fold door size you choose, these efficient doors are designed to prevent heat from escaping from your home.

As aluminium is a natural conductor, it can both draw heat out of a room, and in from the outside. 

In order to prevent this from happening, aluminium bi-fold doors are fitted with a thermal break. This helpful tool separates the interior and exterior components of the door, restricting heat flow and providing excellent insulation. 

Security Features

Most standard bi-fold doors come fitted with a multi-point locking system. 

At Benchmark Windows, all of our doors include high-security locking mechanisms and anti-jemmy devices to provide you with complete peace of mind. 

Colour Options

Once you’ve decided on the right bi-fold door size for your space, it’s finally time for the fun part. Choosing the perfect colour. 

Bi-fold doors are available in a range of colour options, tailored to suit your unique style. Popular colours include white, black and bronze.
