Bi-Fold Glass Fireplace Doors

Equipping your fireplace with a set of bi-fold glass doors brings extra beauty and protection to your hearth area. When shopping for fireplace doors, you will find two varieties: tracked and trackless.

Tracked Bi-Fold Doors

This door’s style comes with two glass panes on each side with hinges and a handle allowing you to create the right size for the opening. Tracked doors run on a track on the top and bottom which makes them open like closet doors.

Tracked bi-fold doors are ideal for families with small children at home since they do not open all the way out and are not as simple for children to operate.

Trackless or Full-Swing Bi-Fold Doors

Trackless doors also are bi-fold and open wide so you can afford a better view of the fire. If energy efficiency is a concern, these doors are the best option because they have fewer seams to allow chilly air to come through. These type of doors are also easier to clean than doors with tracks.

Both alternatives keep burning logs, embers, sparks, and ashes securely contained while protecting your beloved and still allowing you to enjoy views of flames flickering within the firebox.fireplace bi-fold doors

Two Main Benefits of Bi-Fold Glass Fireplace Doors

Extra Protection
