We have been manufacturing multi- and bi-folding doors for a number of years now. The configuration of these doors, from 2 to 10, will depend on your individual needs and the functionality required by your space. All of these points are discussed very early in the design stage for your convenience.
It is our experience that the main component limiting the life expectancy of bi fold doors is the use of inferior tracking and roller systems. Our select grade timbers are individually selected based on their moisture content; inferior timbers will shrink at least 1mm per piece, which jeopardizes the sealing.
These units are sealed in our factory at the time of manufacture to ensure that they stand the test of time. Clients are advised to have 2 coats of ‘Silkens’ oil based undercoat applied to the surface, which seals all edges prior to glazing and assembly. This occurs in our custom-built spray booth.
