    What is the advantage of each of the two type of patio sliding door systems? I understand one is up and over and I cannot remember the name of the other one?

    No, not bifolding doors. There's two types of patio sliding doors but I can't remember the other type.

    There are tilt and slide systems, allowing one door to be tilted open for ventilation, without compromising security.
