#OnTrend | Creating completely open corners

The ultimate ‘wow-factor’ for an extension, the ability to create a completely floating open corner, thanks to a moveable corner post, is proving to be one of the most popular current trends – whether you opt for bifold doors or sliding doors!

Available utilising theEDGE2.0 or Grand Slider II sliding doors or any of our aluminium (SF55 or SF75) or composite (SF55c or SF75c) bifold doors, our open-corner technology offers a truly innovative approach to design that maximises space and fills rooms full of light.

When closed the open-corner technology provides the same weather performance and security as a standard set of sliding or bifold doors, with an advanced multi-point locking system – yet when open the doors slide or fold back away from the corner to create a completely uninterrupted view, truly breaking down the boundaries between inside and out.

The doors form a non-structural element of the opening, so whether you opt for a post set inside the aperture to support the structure or are in a position to include a cantilevered roof as part of your build, the opening is completely uninterrupted.
