Aluminium NT45

Non-thermally Insulated Aluminium
Bifold Door System

Slim sight lines and a smaller stacking space, ideal for internal and some external* solutions.

10 Year Manufacturers Warranty

25 Product Warranty

£1,000 Security Warranty


The NT45 offers a lightweight solution and is ideal for use as an internal bifold door, room dividers, pool enclosures and garages as well as commercial and leisure applications (zoning areas etc).

The NT45 uses a non-thermally insulated profile so ordinarily it does not pass the strict building standard U-Value of 1.8 W/m2k which is required for an external door in the UK (for use in other non UK areas please check local building control legislation).

Although the slimline NT45 frame has a tighter stacking space and a lightweight feel compared to our standard products it doesn’t lose any of the benefits our standard frame offers.

Just as durable and strong and although used mainly for interior doors they are just as weather tight and secure.

The NT45 is bespoke made to your exacting requirements - meaning as a customer you get to specify; dimensions, product style, opening style, configuration, colour, finish, hardware, thresholds, glass specification, glazing options, magnetic stops, ventilation and internal blinds.

A matching range of windows and doors are available to complement the NT45 bifold door.

Threshold Options

We currently offer four threshold options for the NT45 bifold door, with all options available as either inward or outward opening. But for the many, the most popular option is our flush threshold that blends two rooms seamlessly, which is especially useful for those with children, elderly or wheel chair users.

This slimline inline out of sight track system (which runs both top and bottom) is strong, safe and secure with all rollers / moving parts concealed within the aluminium profile extrusion itself. The aluminium track is weather-rated and with the moving parts being encapsulated within the track, there is no danger of doors lifting or bouncing off.
