Everything You Need To Know About Folding Doors

Folding doors turn walls into windows. They seamlessly allow you to enjoy nature without being exposed to the elements. And if you choose to open your doors, you have almost instantly extended your living space into the great outdoors.

In this blog, we outline some of the key benefits of our folding doors and how they can help create the space of your dreams.

Unparalleled Quality

There are many elements of a folding door that make it a high-quality product. Here are a few features that our folding doors have:

Frame and sashes: Constructed with metal reinforcement for maximum sturdiness, ensuring they’re long-lasting.

The sill: Designed with a high drain threshold that allows for excellent water drainage.

Hardware and hinges: Made with stainless steel that combines strength and longevity.

Security: Three-point locking hardware and independent locking systems at every other panel allow for peace of mind.

Accessibility: A low-profile ADA aluminium sill allows those with accessibility needs to effortlessly navigate across the sill of the door.

Maintenance-free: The PVC casing makes these doors very, very low-maintenance and all aluminium that is exposed to the elements is anodized to prevent corrosion.

Great Performance
