With this coating, the lifespan of your exterior bifold doors will be extended and the aesthetic will be optimised for the perfect combination of style and substance.

The process of powder coating has gained significant traction in the industry. It offers unparalleled protection against weather and everyday wear and tear, and is an aesthetic match for any other process out there.

Colours

Visofold 1000 Bi-folding Doors come with a polyester powder-coat paint which is baked onto the aluminium. This means that it will last and look just as good in years to come as it does on installation. All it needs is an occasional wipe down with a sponge. The finish is guaranteed for ten years.

There are over 200 finishes to choose from and you can even select the dual colour option with different colours on the outside and internally.

Glass

There is a wide range of glass options. Standard double glazed units incorporate toughened Low-E safety glass sealed units. These are 90% argon gas filled and have a warm edge spacer-bar. The U-value is 1.2 W/M²K.

Doors can be supplied unglazed allowing you to source your glass from another supplier. Bear in mind that you will need to comply with building Regulations if you choose this option.

Staycool Solar Glazing

We can now fit Staycool solar glazing to all our aluminium sliding and folding doors. Not only does this protect you from direct heat from the sun and reflects glare, in the winter it provides you with the benefits of a 1.1 U-value thus maximising the amount of heat that is retained.

This leading edge glass technology reflects over half (57%) of direct solar heat and reduces glare by 35%. This is achieved without using coloured glass, a major benefit. It also means that your furnishings and flooring will enjoy increased protection from discolouration and fading.

Better than Regulations U-value

Current regulations stipulate a maximum U-value of 1.8, but our Staycool double glazing units beat this by a considerable margin. In fact measurements have shown that our double glazing units achieve U-values of 1.5. Note that the overall U-value of the bifold doors depends on a number of factors other than the double glazing units.

We are also able to achieve even better U-values with optional glazing specifications. For instance we can offer triple glazing and Krypton glass. These incur additional cost, so please contact us for prices.

Security

Security is important, and we take security design seriously. Our doors are designed to give you the level of security we believe you deserve and we always strive to better standard security requirements.

Our security features include:

bi-fold doors security features

This is used as standard for traffic doors, which need to be highly secure. The mechanism has six locking points and is activated by a lever-lever handle. There are two deep throw hook locks which engage into the outer frame. These prevent the door from being pulled open when the intermediate shoot bolts aren’t engaged. Additionally there are a standard latch and a dead bolt. Adjustable rollers ensure that the doors are pulled in tightly for good weathering performance.

For arrangements that have double traffic doors, these are configured as a master door and a slave door. The master door locks as described above, with the slave door having additional top and bottom shoot bolts that are engaged by a pendulum handle.

The weakest part of traditional locking systems is the cylinder. This is vulnerable to picking, bumping, and drilling as routinely practiced by burglars. However our high security cylinders use state of art technology that is resistant to these. They have passed the PAS024 test stipulated by BSI & Secured by Design.

The intermediate handles can be locked by a key. This serves the same function as window locks, adding an additional layer of security. All intermediate handles can use the same key, though a separate key is needed for traffic doors.

These secure the door at the top and bottom of the intermediate panels. They are operated by the pendulum handle. They are chamfered for ease of use and give a very tight fit which protects against forced entry while providing excellent weather performance.

Fitted to the top and bottom of the outer frame channel, these provide increased security and consistent operation. They protect against forced entry using a jemmy or crowbar as they eliminate any possible leverage point. They also help maintain smooth operation of your doors.

Our standard glazing is toughened safety glass and sealed units are installed internally. We use high security beading to provide additional security. As the sealed units can only be removed internally, they are secure against forced entry from outside.

We are also able to supply 6 mm laminated glass units for additional security as an optional extra.

Hardware

There are a number of handle options for traffic doors and intermediate doors. These include our Pendulum and Pendulum Nouveau handles which are available for intermediate panels and traffic doors. There is also the option for outside access which removes the requirement for a traffic door.

Handles are available in a range of colours.

Traffic Door Handle

For configurations that include a traffic door you can choose a lever-lever handle. Functional and easy to use, these give easy access. They include high security locking cylinders and multi-point locking.

Intermediate Door Handles

Intermediate panels feature our Pendulum handle. This classic design is sleek and elegant. You can also choose the Pendulum handle for traffic doors. It is sufficiently strong and robust for opening and closing the doors on its own, eliminating the need for extra D-handles. Locking action is provided by shoot bolts and the handles are locked using a key.

Optional D-Handles

D-handles are optional. Fitted to the inside of doors they make pulling and sliding easier by providing a strong hand hold. While not necessary, some people will find them beneficial. They fit at the position of the hinge.

Hinges & Bogie Wheel Assemblies

The doors incorporate four wheel bogie assemblies. These move on twin stainless steel tracks; the combination providing graceful and easy and opening and closing. The full weight of the doors is supported giving a beautiful sliding action.

Additional security and stability is provided by a dedicated guide running inside the outer frame.

Traffic Door Buffer Magnets

There is the option to fit high strength buffer magnets to traffic doors. These secure the doors to the adjacent intermediate panel keeping them open. It also stops the traffic door handles hitting the intermediate panels.

Bifold door sightlines

Bifold door sightlines are the width of the frame, and modern construction methods and materials have allowed us to reduce the sightlines to provide an improved look and feeling of space. The sightline of panels that move in the same direction is just 132 mm, and in the case of a traffic door meeting a folding sliding panel it is just 179 mm. Where there are connected meeting stiles the sightline is 216 mm.

Integrated Trickle Vents

Trickle vents are small openings in doors and windows that permit a limited amount of ventilation of the space when the doors and windows are closed. These are now compulsory throughout UK and Europe for all naturally ventilated spaces. Their benefits include a reduced risk of condensation, minimum ventilation to reduce heat loss, and the avoidance of drafts.

Trickle vents are mounted on the surface of thin aluminium bifold doors, and although they provide many benefits the downside is they are unappealing aesthetically. However by clever design we can now offer an exclusive frame extender to our Visofold 1000 bifold doors which conceals the trickle vents from view. The effect is that the slim lines of our folding sliding doors are maintained. The door design includes a weather drip which improves overall performance.
