Bi-fold doors offer impressive opening apertures that can unite internal and external areas creating unique living and social areas. Suitable for both residential and commercial applications.
Bi-fold doors 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, cafe or restaurant, Bi-fold doors 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.
Any Way You Like
Our bi-fold doors offer a choice of opening configurations to suit any application. Choose to fold the sashes internally or externally, place the opening at the side so the sashes all fold one way, at one end, to create a single entrance door for easy access, or in the middle to give the option of a double door.
Our bi-fold doors are available in a choice of standard or non-standard colours, including metallic, wood-structure, dual colour and Smart’s unique Sensations range of textured finishes. Please speak with us about your specific requirements.
Colour-matched accessories are available for all our products. We also supply integral blinds, a fantastic optional extra to compliment your bi-fold doors and are available with manual or electronic solar powered remote options and a variety of colours.
Our bi-fold doors comply with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010. Security is assured by multi-point lock mechanisms on main opening sashes, and shoot-bolt locking on a floating mullions.
All our bi-fold door 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.
