Bi-fold Door, Windows and Louvers
Bi-fold DoorsI'm another title
We offer over 25 configurations of bi-fold doors, from even or odd number of panels, opening inwards or out and with an opener door. Some systems are floating and side completely to one side and fold away while others open in the middle and evenly slide to either side.
Another consideration is the floor threshold with the standard being 50mm. We also offer the contemporary low threshold to integrate a room fully with the outdoor area. Low thresholds are perfect for wheelchair access and for busy families who are running and entertaining across the doorway space.
If a bespoke look is required the bi-fold doors can be powder coat painted. In addition to colours suitable for a home, colours can provide a prominence to a commercial building or to a company colour scheme. Even though bi-folds provide a modern look, with clever use of colours and finishes, they can complement traditional and existing buildings.
The hardware components are manufactured from a combination of 316 marine grade and 304 architectural grade stainless steel for high corrosion resistance. Precision bearings are used in hangers to reduce rolling resistance and provide smooth operation.
Inserted glass can also be tinted as an added feature.
We also offer custom made bi-fold door engineered insect screens. These are ultra slim-line screens which do not obscure views and neatly and quickly fold into a streaml-ine cavity.

Our custom made louvers provide a modern appeal to a residential home or commercial buiding. Strategically placed they are aesthetically pleasing and provide security, privacy and reduce sunlight and heat.
As with our signature bi-fold doors our louvers are custom made with many optional features.
Our doors have many names but they all do the same job - transform a room from the ordinary to the exceptional!
Whether a new building or a home renovation, bi-fold doors create an open and flowing space, linking indoor and outdoor areas. Bi-folds provide free movement and integration between indoors and outdoors, such as onto gardens, swimming pools, decks and balconies. In commercial settings they are often used in showrooms, restaurants, bars, hotel and shops. They are an attractive and popular alternative to french doors and sliding glass doors. Whether using an 8 panel system to open up a large area or a 3 panel for a smaller setting, bi-folds let in light and connect spaces.
Our bespoke aluminium bi-fold doors provide a sophisticated and modern appearance. Having said that, bi-fold doors compliment traditional and existing buildings/surroundings of any period with the clever use of colours and finishes. A bi-fold door system is a highlight of a room and transforms its function.
Bi-fold doors are a beautiful addition to any new or pre-existing structure and are a lifetime investment to a property. They add real cash value to a home or commercial premise. Furthermore the unseen value to a client's lifestyle and quality by creating a relaxed and open atmosphere.
Space shuttles and air-crafts use aluminium so it has to be tough! Aluminium has tensile strength, corrosion resistance, light weight, design flexibility, non sparking, non magnetic and offers high resistance to vandalism and fire damage; making it an ultimate material. Our bi-folds are engineered, hand crafted and assembled for optimum function and durability. With minimum maintenance our doors are robust and built to perform.
We combine the very latest in security features on all our bi-fold doors without compromising on usability and aesthetics. We take the security of our products very seriously, in our factory we rigorously test for safety and use the Lockwood Pentagon system.
The focus on building energy efficient homes and commercial buildings has resulted in increased use of aluminium and glass. Aluminium is an energy efficient material and a reusable resource. Our tinted laminate glass provides the added advantage of reduction in heat transfer and minimising UV rays and glare.
Our bespoke doors are built to last and provide hassle free care. We recommend that the aluminium profiles be wiped down with a cloth and basic spray, such as a glass cleaner, in order to remove dust, prints or other residue. The glass can simply be wiped down and the tracking can be swept or vacuumed to remove debris. We recommend an annual check and maintenance of the door by our team. The aluminium and PVC profiles need only to be wiped with soapy water when required, leaving you to enjoy the door.
Guarantee and Peace of Mind
We offer a comprehensive 10 year guarantee on all our bi-folds. If installed by our team your warranty includes our labour for your peace of mind.
