Flush Tracks & Rollers
Be cautious when choosing a bi-fold door, as track and rollers play a vital part in the security of your door. If an intruder can get access to the track, they have easy access to your home with the simple lift of a crow bar.
All our rollers are fully encapsulated within the track and fitted to both the top and bottom of the bi-fold door. This dual roller system also has the added benefit of distributing the weight evenly and enables an ultra smooth operation.

Quality, heavy duty, fit for purpose hardware
We predominantly our own Fold 'N' Slide hardware range which is uniquely designed, independently tested and accredited.

Fitted to all externally opening bi-fold door products
Located internally to assist the locking into position of the bi-fold door when operating the flat handle. Pull handles enable ease of operation and easy closing - they take the strain and the weight of the door panels when pulling into closed position.

Slim flat handles
A bi-fold door internal handle for reduced stacking
All of our bi-fold doors and bi-fold windows are fitted with the new lockable flat handle. These internal handles are designed specifically for reduced stacking space for when the doors are in use (a normal lever handle would project out). The new handles are lockable and operate the shoot bolt locking, which locates directly into the top and bottom tracks.

Child friendly gaskets
Fitted with finger safe compression gaskets
All our bi-fold doors are fitted with child safe/finger safe compression gaskets. With two gaskets meeting to form a weathertight seal but with enough space between the panels themselves so they do not harm if a finger is caught between. Great if you have little ones at home.
