ALUMINIUM BIFOLD DOORS
Round Profile or Square Profile
This aluminium profile can be used in domestic applications as either an alternative to sliding doors, or to open up an entire wall as part of a conservatory; the system will make the most of a beautiful view or bring a garden into the home.
Used commercially in a bar, café or restaurant, it can create a glazed screen that allows in the maximum ingress of light in inclement weather, and will also easily glide to open up an entire wall in warmer weather.
All the profiles feature a polyamide thermal break that enhances the thermal performance of the profile and improves the overall U-Value. Profiles feature EPDM high quality gaskets and weather brushes to aid weather resistance. It also complies with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010.
All bifold doors have the option of either low thresholds for unimpeded, easy access, or rebated thresholds that offer improved weather resistance.

This adaptable system is suitable for use as either sliding commercial entrances where large opening apertures are required, or as dynamic residential sliding doors that maximise light and give stunning unimpeded views. These profiles have been designed to improve both strength and weather resistance. All main sections feature an extended polyamide thermal break that allows it to achieve a U Value of 1.6 W/m²K when installed with a suitable sealed unit.
- Slim interlock option
- Colour matched accessories

HERITAGE OR LISTED BUILDINGS (replacing Crittall style windows)
If you have a heritage project or a listed building we do offer an extra slim profile, which provides the ideal solution for installations such as listed building renovations and large scale replica-refurbishment projects where planning constraints are to be considered or if you are replacing Crittall style windows. This profile still utilises polyamide thermal break technology which creates a barrier between the cold air outside and the warm air inside. This technology significantly reduces thermal transmittance and enhances the overall U Value of a product and is designed to meet the exacting requirements of Document L 2010. This aluminium profile has been designed to offer a modern solution for heritage and renovations applications where the requirement to replace old steel windows is essential.
