Leaders in energy performance:

Our systems are manufactured to exceed current U value building regulations. The internal aluminium frame sections are separated from the external with a thermal barrier minimising any heat loss. In addition, we fit high performing glass sealed units specifically designed to reflect heat back into your home.

The combination of a thermal barrier, multiple weather seals and high performing glass maximises heat retention in your home, increasing fuel efficiency and helping to minimise fuel bills.

More bounce for the ounce:

We offer a top quality stylish product with high insulation values. Our doors will exceed your expectations in terms of mechanical and thermal performance.

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.

A finish to suit every project :

The doors can be finished in one of our standard colours (see below) or a choice of over 200 RAL colours.

The powder coat finish is applied to the aluminium extrusions in a factory controlled environment ensuring a high quality finish. For coastal locations the finish can be upgraded to marine grade.

Applications:

Our doors are used for a range of domestic and commercial applications such as:

Open plan living areas, Sun Rooms, Balconies, Swimming Pools, Garden Buildings, Restaurants, Showrooms.

Serious with security:

Security is always an important factor when purchasing a door for your home, and our product has been designed with this in mind.

We only fit police approved Secured by Design multi point locks on the main doors, which are operated with BSI Kite marked key cylinders.

All intermediate panels have concealed steel shoot bolts that engage securely into the top and bottom tracks. Toughened safety glass is fixed into the panels with beading on the inside so it cannot be removed from the outside.

Better the weather you know:

The door system is designed for all European climates. The panels and frames have multi layered rubber weather seals ensuring resistance to the worst of the weather.

The Hausmann Schuco Bi-folding door is a beautiful German engineered aluminium bi fold door system, it is a robust and superbly engineered product and is ideal for both domestic and commercial use. The doors are built to a commercial standard and will therefore give you decades of reliable trouble free use. The ultra slim frames are both stylish and offer the flexibility to provide you with a unique and attractive addition to your home or property. They maximise light coming in to your property, optimise views and living space and therefore transform the way you live your life and enjoy your home.

 

We apply the same strict manufacturing discipline to all our products. Using one of Europe's leading aluminium systems, Hausmann Bi-folding Door goes through the same rigorous checks as our sliding doors, so that on arrival on site fitting teams don't encounter problems or lose time.

Our bi-fold doors can be manufactured folding to the left, right or to both sides. A pass door can be incorporated in the system, which can be used like a normal external door, leaving the other panels locked in place. 

For practical reasons most people choose to open the doors to the outside, but they can be manufactured opening inside if required. The illustrations provided are just a sample of possible openings, for more options please speak to your advisor. 

 

If you are at the design stage of a project you could select one of our standard sized doors listed below. They are available in our standard colour range and can be manufactured in any opening configuration. A very cost effective solution.

Choose from the following sizes:

  • 2400 x 2090 3 Panels
  • 3000 x 2090 3 Panels

  • 4000 x 2090 4 Panels

  • 5000 x 2090 5 Panels

  • 5900 x 2090 6 panels

Locking options:

Slimline handle:

Choice of either traditional lever / lever handle on main door, or slim line handle.

Lever / Lever handle:

A traditional lever / lever handle provides a latching facility similar to that of a standard front or back door.

A lever / lever handle should be used on main entrance doors, or doors that have high a volume of traffic/people opening and closing the door on a regular basis, such as doors that will be operated by the general public in bars, restaurants, showrooms etc.

Note that a lever / lever handle does not enable the doors to fold back flat upon themselves. A magnetic door stop is used to hold the doors back in the open position and protect the handle from hitting the door.

Our slim line handles are a fold back flush handle specifically designed for bifold doors:

  • Slim line exterior and interior handle ensures door leafs fold back flat

  • Shootbolt locking with mortice deadbolt for added security

  • Available in a wide range of standard finishes, including white, black, chrome and satin silver

Note that the slim line handle does not offer a latch function. If you require a latch function then a standard lever / lever handle is required.

With a 10 year guarantee, these are available in either black, white, silver and Innox (stainless steel effect).

Our expert team will help you specify the right system for your next project. From initial specification to packing and shipping we can help you.
