  1. Duette blinds for bi-fold doors… Internal

Internal blinds or simple fit as they are know are duette blinds that are fitted to each panel of your bi-fold door.

Don’t worry these blinds do not need to be screwed or drilled to fix they to your doors, they simple fix into the beading of the doors

The only issue you may have with this type of duette blinds for bi-fold doors are when the doors are fully open (folded back). If your doors are touching when the are folded back this option may not be possible as you do need a 20mm gap between each panel.

Another thing you need to bear in mind is these blinds will work out more expensive than other styles as you need one blind per panel.

2. Duette blinds for bi-fold doors….External

When I say external I don’t mean outside, I just mean not fitted to the door panels.

These duette blinds fit in front of your bi-fold doors, so you will need less blinds, and with a maximum width per blind of 4 metres you could cover your doors with 1 or 2 blinds.

This style of duette blinds can be operated with a cord, by hand (literise) so no cords or chains or by remote control or with powerview can even be controlled from your phone.

With duette blinds fitted side by side the gap between to 2 blinds is very small when compared to other blind styles like roller blinds where the gap can be as much as 50mm.
