The Aïr 800 bifolding door offers some of the best specifications found in bifolding doors on the market.
Several key features set the Air 800 bi-fold door apart from other bifolding doors. Importantly these are features that the quality conscious customer seeks when looking for a premium bifolding door that is both cutting edge and technically superior.
Air bifolding doors are one of the slimmest on the market.
With Air bifolding doors come industry-leading, ultra slim sight lines providing bigger glass area and less visible frame. Sightlines from 108mm from the outer frame to the sash are available.
The important meeting stile dimension on closed doors is only 122mm. This makes it slimmer than most bifolding doors available on the market.
Air bifolding doors offer panel sizes of 1200mm widths and 3000mm heights as well as maximum panel weights of 120kg. Subject to individual door design and weight limitations, Aïr bifolding doors can also be made taller than 3000mm.
25-year guarantee – the longest on the market.
No other bifolding door available on the market offers a 25-year warranty.
This guarantee is possible thanks to the engineering, quality of hardware and precision manufacturing. Air folding doors are cycle tested to 50000 open and closing cycles. As a result, these tests equate to doors opening and closing every other day for 277 years.
Only one company makes Air bifolding doors.
Air bifolding doors are one of only a handful of premium doors on the market just to be made by one company.
The advantage is strict quality control, also making for more consistent manufacturing. Additionally, product support comes from one manufacturer, not several.
High Quality powder coated finishes and colour options.
Air bifolding doors come as standard with a marine grade polyester powder coating as standard. The overall thickness of the paint is more than other standard powder coated finishes (60 microns instead of the typical 40 microns).
Finally, a range of easy-clean textured paint finishes comes in a wide range of RAL colours. These are are also more durable and scratch resistant than standard paint finishes.
Luxurious designer handles, individual to Air Doors.
Air doors come with a range of premium quality door handles available in a total of 8 different colours and three different types, Standard, Luxury and Serenity. Everglade Windows design and manufacture Serenity door handles. Serenity is a designer range of designer handles that offer non-corrosive, hypoallergenic and 100% recyclable properties.
Technically advanced gaskets and seals.
Doors such as bifolding doors rely on double gaskets on the meeting stiles and in other areas depending on the design.
On Aïr bifolding doors, gaskets feature a double interlocking feature that reduces the visible gasket sight line giving the appearance of only one evident seal. This provides a slimmer appearance compared to other doors and minimizes the possibility of air gaps through ageing of the product. Air door gaskets also provide anti-finger trap properties.
The gaskets and seals used in an Air door are designed for long service life and coated with Teflon. Also known as PTFE, Teflon gets widely utilised in a wide variety of consumer and industrial applications.
When coated with Teflon, polymers such as the EPDM gaskets used in the doors, therefore benefit from better weather, dirt and chemical resistance. Other benefits include the elimination of gaskets sticking together through prolonged compression from closed doors. As well as this, the gaskets offer an improved release from the frame and lower friction too. As well as this, extended gasket life is another good feature.
Low threshold option with a weather rating.
Air doors offer a weather rating on the low threshold where other door brands recommend only internal use with their low thresholds.
