Why Buy Bi-Folding Doors From TWS?
Bi-folding doors can be used as either an alternative to sliding doors, or to open up an entire wall as part of a conservatory.
Bi-folding doors make the most of a beautiful view or bring a garden into the home. Made popular by use in bars, cafés and restaurants, bi-folding doors can create a highly glazed screen allowing in the maximum amount of light, especially useful during inclement weather. During warmer weather bi-folding doors easily glide to open up an entire wall bringing the outdoors in.
There are a choice of opening configurations to suit most applications and you can 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. Bi-folding profiles feature a thermal break to enhance the thermal performance and improve the overall U-Value of the home. Featuring EPDM high quality gaskets and weather brushes aid weather resistance further. Bi-folding doors comply with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010 and Security is assured by a multi-point lock mechanism on main opening sashes and shoot-bolt locking on floating sections.

Schüco aluminium bi-folding doors – architectural view & quality
A Ud value of under 2.0 W/m2K (with corresponding glazing) means high thermal insulation.
Burglar resistance to resistance class WK2 and a high level of weather resistance against driving rain (up to 600 Pa) are just two of the outstanding features of this system.
This system can be opened both outwards and inwards, but you will not lose any living space due to the way in which the door leaves can be stored to one side. It is also suitable for balcony glazing. The smooth, low-noise operation of the stainless steel tracks and a flat threshold, if required, make Schüco ASS 70 FD an ideal system for residential areas and public spaces. Sound reduction up to class 4 (40-44 db sound reduction) can be achieved thanks to the use of special panes.
Narrow profile face widths (as of 120 mm) and rounded profile contours ensure an attractive design – the outer frame and leaf frame are mitre-cut on all sides. A flush-fitted glazing bead enhances the well-balanced frame architecture. Concealed drainage is also possible, so that there is no need to compromise on good design.
