Can I Get Electric Bi Fold Door Blinds?
If you have bi-fold doors then, you probably enjoy a lot of natural light and a lovely view of your garden. However, you most likely also suffer from glare on your devices, excess heat and even a lack of privacy. Blinds are the perfect solution to these issues and can give you more control over the temperature and shading of your room. Bi-fold doors are often in a large set across your wall and require several blinds to cover the glazing. We have many different options for shading a set of folding door blinds, but we are often asked if we can do electric bi-fold door blinds.
Why Should I Choose Electric Blinds?
Electric blinds are a great option for people looking to shade large areas of glazing or control multiple blinds. In some cases, you can connect up to 99 blinds to a remote control. Or alternatively, you can opt for battery operated blinds or connect our blinds to a Somfy® TaHoma Smart Home system.
Battery operated blinds give you the option to electronically control your blinds without any excess wires to a power source. With a battery operation, you also have the option of handheld, wall mounted control or smart control. Comparatively, Somfy® blinds give you the option to control your motorised blinds via a smartphone, app or smart home device such as an Amazon Alexa®.
Overall, electric blinds mean it’s a lot less manual effort to shade your home. You can adjust your blinds with more precision and at a range. Whether that distance is from the sofa or from outside the house, is up to you!
Should I Get Electric Bi Fold Door Blinds?
Bifold doors are often made up of a large amount of glazing and can stretch across a whole wall of your home. Which is why electric blinds for bifold doors are especially effective and make shading such a large area simple! Instead of manually having to extend the blind on each individual bifold door or large roller blind, you can control the shading of your room electronically.
It is essential you choose high-quality blinds for your bifold as the wrong blinds can become entangled in the mechanism.
Electric Roller Blinds for Bifold Doors
We often use electric roller blinds for bifold doors as our wide roller blinds are perfect for covering multiple doors at once. We fit the roller blinds so they hang in front of your window, just above the door; this ensures your blinds don’t interrupt the folding mechanism. We would recommend roller blinds for those that wish to shade their room but leave their doors open behind to circulate fresh air.

Duette® & Roller Blinds for Bifold Doors
Duette® Blinds for Bi-fold Doors are a great option for those wishing to have blinds fit into recess of their bifold doors. This means you can open your bifold doors without the blinds interfering with the mechanism. However these are manual, so if you would like extra control over your shading you can add motorised roller blinds in front. This combination almost acts as a substitution for dim-out blinds!
Blinds for Floor to Ceiling Windows
Sometimes when fitting floor to ceiling blinds we find a set of bifolds below. Using our market-leading pureaspect™ gable blinds technology, we can craft a blind that covers the gable above and then drops down to a rectangular shape to cover the bi-folds below.
