aïr folding door handles have been designed by a world renowned designer.

The design of the Luxury Range of bifolding door handles was carried out by Leo De Carlo whose design portfolio is world-renowned in the field of furnishing, lighting, interior design and electronics. His design agency, Mist is located in Venice.

Aïr bifolding doors when fitted with the Luxury Range of door handles are enhanced by handles that are Italian inspired and feature advanced methods of construction, attention to detail and a contemporary interpretation of a modernist style.

The Luxury Range of bifolding door handles is in keeping with the modern trend for contemporary doors. They feature either an entirely flat handle or one with a subtly curving end.

Aïr Luxury Range is the next generation of aluminium door handles.

A choice of flat or subtly curved master door handles is available.

The aïr Luxury Range of door handles is made from the latest generation of alloy material called PURA. PURA alloys are 100% environmentally friendly and contain no toxic elements. The PURA production process is also less polluting than any other.

In coating the Luxury Range of handles available with aïr 800 bifolding doors, a ground-breaking method call BIOV is used. BIOV consists of PVD technology used to provide protection to engine parts. Handles coated with BIOV™ have no limitation on colour tone.

Aïr door handles offer a highly protected handle resistant to any atmospheric and external contaminants and agents. This highly advanced surface treatment makes aïr folding door handles exclusive, individual and desirable. The BIOV surface treatment also results in a handle that is ecologic, biocompatible, recyclable, non-corrosive and anti-allergenic.

The neat features of these exceptional door handles mean only simple cleaning is required. A simple clean with vinegar on a tissue is all that is needed. The handles will retain their original appearance for many years.

Other features of the production and coating process used in aïr bifolding door handles include:

  • 100% ecologic and environmentally friendly with no toxic waste.
  • A high-quality alternative to stainless steel.
  • Up to three times more harness than normal surface treatments on handles.
  • High UV resistance
  • Exceptional durability with stress resistance between steel and brass.

Air systems feature a unique handle mechanism.

aïr bifolding doors are available with a unique range of handles in many individual finishes.

Aïr bifolding door handles feature a unique internal mechanism that is also cutting edge. Called Cliq-Claq, the handle mechanism snaps positively into place thanks to the way it slides over the spindle of the handle that is square.

The Cliq-Claq design also helps the handle stay firmly fixed in position. It is beautifully positive to use, and the quality can be seen and felt. Cliq-Claq also enables the handles to snap back into the perfect and desired position.

I contacted Nick @ ATS for guidance on what aluminium sliding door systems would be suitable for an opening in an extension that is going to be both wide and tall. He came back really quickly with very detailed and incredibly helpful advice. He is clearly extremely knowledgeable about the systems on the market and their respective features and capabilities. If you’re feeling a bit lost by the overwhelming range of choices out there, I’d definitely recommend contacting him.

After a lot of research to find doors that would meet our unusual size requirements and feeling increasingly uncertain about the best way to spend our small budget, I stumbled on the ATS website, and I'm so glad I did! I contacted ATS to request advice and Nick promptly replied with a wealth of information, providing us with options and relevant contact details. I only wish I'd found them sooner!

I've been so confused about how to achieve the look I'm after, and going round in circles with various window/door companies, trying to get away from the huge chunks of plastic currently around my windows. I didn't expect an email to a company found through a Google search to really help - but I was desperate, so I tried. I'm SO glad I did. Finally I have clear explanations from ATS of where I've been going wrong, exactly what I'm looking for, and a list of local companies that might be able to provide it! The response has excelled my expectations and I feel as if I'm finally inching closer to a home with which I'll be happy and comfortable: thank you.

It is rare that I write reviews, however after my very positive communication with Nick - enquiring about suitable slim sash aluminium windows for my project, I felt that a review was definitely warranted. I can reinforce the many positive reviews posted so far, Nick was very quick to respond, providing comprehensive detail, with excellent independent advice.In summary, great service, thank you Nick.

I dropped Nick at Aluminium Trade Supply an email re high security slim sightline bi-folds and their alternatives and he responded that quickly (and so comprehensively) that I felt bad I’d not paid him for his time!Nick Sir your product knowledge is outstanding and you are providing a level of service that goes wayyyy above and beyond expectations. I’ll definitely make sure I mention Aluminium Trade Supply to anyone I encounter looking for a fenestration solution 🙏🏼

We are looking to replace some old UPVC patios doors with aluminium ones. The ATS website is a great source of advice in an area where clear information is sorely lacking. Having used the website, I then followed this up with a number of specific questions relating to our search, and Nick came back very quickly with clear, detailed and very useful advice.I have been very impressed with both the website and with Nick's advice. My only regret is that I didn't come across ATS before replacing various windows in 2021 - I'm sure it would have saved me a lot of grief and money! Thanks again Nick.

My experience with this firm was exceptionally good and this is notalways the case as a female, dipping a toe into technical waters.I was spoken too with courtesy and at a level that helped me consolidate what was needed .On top of that I was given a list of companies and places where I could obtain the type of product I needed.I could not thank them enough and would certainly go there again and reccommend others do too.
