About Porta Sanfonada
As the name implies, the folding door has a pattern reminiscent of accordion, a model that doubles as it runs on the track. This striking feature yields an incredible advantage over space optimization as it goes beyond a conventional aperture.
Experts say that this is essentially a cheap the most affordable on the market. What's more, the thing that draws most into the fan door is versatility. They are various materials, tones and models that change according to each decorative style - that is, it is suitable for modern, rustic, classic, industrial, minimalist nuances, among many others.

In fact, this model is ideal for this, being seen even as something provisional. However, there are professionals who can choose a beautiful and attractive pattern for any environment. As we have already said, there is now a wide variety of spaces available.
For those who need an opening with a right position that is ideal in spaces that are tailor-made, that does not hit furniture, that is simple and surpasses all "constructive expectations", the folding door is a perfect indication.
What are its advantages and disadvantages?
Like any port model, this version has good advantages and also some disadvantages. It is good to look at these concepts to decide whether or not it is worth investing in your installation. Among the qualities, it stands out:
♦ A versatility - As we have already said, the folding door has a great flexibility and adaptation to any environment and room, besides many variable patterns according to tones, materials, styles, etc.
♦ Economically accessible - The folding door has a very attractive cost. To get an idea, there are basic models of PVC that are on sale for about 50 reais.
♦ Easy to install - quick and easy installation is another advantage of the folding door. Some standards you can even install yourself following tutorials without the help of a professional.
♦ Adaptable to compact environments - If you live in a small apartment or in a house where space needs to be optimized, this is a beautiful option, especially for the bathroom, kitchen and laundry.
♦ Maintenance - as long as you take care when opening or closing the fan door you will not have problems with maintenance. However, in PVC models it is especially worth paying attention to the top piece that makes the door run, so that it does not get worn or scratch - in that case, it will make more difference to change the door than just that part.
It is worth noting that this model is easy to clean and practically immune to attack by termites and other pests, as well as to gather little dust and be resistant to UV rays.
As for the disadvantages, we can mention:
♦ Aesthetics - may be a problem for some people the aesthetic factor, since there are models of doors more beautiful and lush. But as long as you choose a folding door with material that matches your decorating style, this problem is healed.
♦ Fragility - The folding doors are not as sturdy when compared to other options. If you are not careful about opening, you will probably have to change it quickly, as they are hardly vulnerable to breakage and scratches.
♦ Noise - there are some versions that make an annoying noise when opening, so do not install in rooms or rooms. PVC patterns fit this variable, so it's best to opt for more "silent" types, such as bamboo, for example.
♦ Acoustics - the soundproofing is practically non-existent and you will not miss listening to the noise coming from the rooms, even closing the door. This can be bad for environments such as the bathroom or bedroom, so think about installing the folding door in some spaces.
