Serious with security:

Fully Adjustable:

This is a very important consideration when purchasing a folding door. Natural expansion and settlement of building materials may result in the requirement for adjustment after installation.

Unlike most other folding door systems our product can be fully adjusted with ease, ensuring that the door will always be fully functional and weather proof.

The Schuco bifold door system has led the market for a decade or more for a reason. With clean sightlines and 'screaming' quality, it has end user appeal in bucket loads.

It also goes together perfectly and features tonnes of scope for adjustment on site, which make it far easier to fit and to achieve a flawless installation, than any other system on the market.

German engineered, it is comfortably capable of accommodating individual panels of 1,200mm wide by 3,000mm high or as a system, spanning apertures of up to 18 panels wide, all with a

10-year guarantee.
