Information about Schuco bi folding doors.
Within the Schüco bi folding doors range are three insulated models for exterior use, designed for the replacement of dated patio door and for newly built openings. All offer ultra-slim sight lines with thermally insulated aluminium sections and providing excellent aesthetics, quality and ease of use. The option of a fixed or floating corner post further adds to the design options available and all Schüco bi folding doors provide several threshold options all with good levels of weather protection.
With their modern styling and reduced visible aluminium comes doors with some of the largest panel size capabilities. Schüco bifolds comfortably offer panels up to 1.5m wide with all models and heights of up to 3 metres or taller depending upon the overall door design and installation.
The outer frame of the Schuco door meets the internal plaster in such a way, creating a smooth sight line. As well as this, the smaller frame dimension creates a more minimalist-looking door. Not only are the door profiles slim compared to other doors, but they also provide bigger glass panels. As a result, end-users benefit from better views and improved thermal performance too.
Schüco bi folding doors also offer a unique gasket arrangement compared to other bifolding door products. When the door shuts, the gaskets work to keep the door tightly sealed against the weather. The gaskets also cleverly move away from the outer frame on opening the door. Four stainless steel wheels per leaf come engineered to open the doors smoothly. Additionally, door hinges feature additional silicone sealant. As a result, no draughts penetrate the doors through the hardware.
Also available is a variable adjustment on the width (up to 10mm). In other words, this adjustment allows the doors to fit precisely, making them more long-term reliable. Installing the doors is also better as every structural opening is not 100% precise across its width and height. This adjustment, therefore, allows any irregular site condition to rectify quickly.
