Overview

The AA65 bi-fold door is part of the very latest development from FSDC Global. Designed from the inside out - the AA65 utilises the new ‘internally reinforced 65 aluminium core system’.

The AA65 offers a modern styled frame, moulded around the insulated glass units and symmetrical in design - with matching internal and external profiles. Exceptionally durable and versatile, the AA65 can work within any living arrangement or commercial situation, providing the ultimate WOW factor, in terms of aesthetics, functionality and adaptability.

Again as it’s aluminium it is extremely strong, durable and is low maintenance. Being thermally insulated it is also extremely energy efficient - retaining heat in colder climates and heat out in warmer climates, which all adds up to lower bills.

This revolutionary new ’65 core’ system allows for a truly customised finish - allowing you the option to choose which material goes on each side - so you can keep the same look throughout but with a mix of materials on different products.

In the case of the AA65 - it’s aluminium/aluminium to both sides - but if you wanted to have aluminium/timber (AW65) - with timber to the inside of the lounge to match existing oak architecture then you can and it will all match, get it?

This aluminium bi-fold door is bespoke made to your exacting requirements - meaning as a customer you get to specify; dimensions, product style, material, opening style, configuration, colour, finish, hardware, thresholds, glass specification, glazing options, magnetic stops, ventilation and internal blinds, and don’t forget we offer matching products too.

A matching range of windows and doors are available to complement the AA65 bi-fold door.
