Tradesmith aluminium Bifolds are fitted with Winkhaus high security multi-point stainless steel locking mechanisms.  Shoot bolt locks and internal beading all make important contributions to the security of our doors.


Thermal efficiency


Our Aluminium door frames reduce heat loss. They feature a polyamide bridge, or barrier, within the specially designed thermally broken aluminium section.  Polyamide has very high heat-transfer resistance and acts as a thermal barrier to heat transfer from the interior face of the frame to the outside.  Combined with energy-efficient glass and efficient weather-sealing, aluminium bifold doors are wonderfully thermally efficient and reduce heating costs.



Threshold Options


Our standard threshold height is 54mm. Our optional low threshold is 34mm. If the door is to divide rooms internally, a very low ‘room divider’ track can be used at only 22mm high but it is not a weathered specification.



Colour options


Aluminium products are available in a huge range of polyester powder coated RAL colour and special finishes, including dual colour, natural-looking wood-grains and metallic paint options. All paint finishes carry a 10 year guarantee. Marine grade paint is also an option, necessary for coastal installations.
