Solarlux bifolding doors

The bifolding door range from Solarlux has a collection comprising aluminium, aluminium and wood systems, also known as hybrid products.

In aluminium, Ecoline or Highline bifolding doors firstly offer impressive slim sightlines of only 99mm and expansive panels up to 3.5m high. These are the popular aluminium bifolds in the range, offering contemporary sightlines and exceptional hardware.

SL35 Solarlux bifolding doors are a slimline system with a frame depth of just 35mm.  The Solarlux SL35 model combines with other Solarlux windows.  This non-insulated system suits internal doors or where U-Values and energy efficiency are not part of the specification.

For deeper frames, the Solarlux SL45 is another non-insulated folding sliding door system with sizes up to 1100mm wide and 2200mm high or up to 2800mm high with a narrower door panel. Again these doors suit environments where thermal performance is not required.

The new Solarlux Megaline takes what’s possible with a bifolding door to new levels of technical excellence. Designed for larger openings, Megaline is capable of panels up to 4.5m high or 1.5m wide.

Solarlux Hybrid Systems

Besides premium aluminium products, Woodline Solarlux bifolding doors come in sustainable wood, having beautiful finishes and premium door furniture.  The bifolds offer a 143mm mullion sightline, double or triple glazing and up to 2.8m high door panels.

Combiline hybrid bifolding doors have wood on the inside, powder-coated aluminium on the outside. The specifications of these are generally similar specifications to the Woodline product.

Solarlux SL82 aluminium bifolding doors offer the most design freedom, thanks to its more versatile 80mm frame, thermally enhanced profiles and outstanding engineering. The key design feature of the Solarlux SL82 is the minimal frame and a near frameless appearance.  For a hybrid and high-specification version, the SL97 comes with hand-crafted mortice and tenon joints and a luxury look and feel..

Sliding Doors by Solarlux Systems

Seven sliding door products meet the needs of both exterior quality sliding doors, interior partitions, room dividers and balcony enclosures.

The all-glass systems include the SL20E, SL22, SL23.  For aluminium sliding doors SL142, SL160 offer excellent engineering and manufacturing quality. Then there is the SL178 wood sliding door and the SL179 as a hybrid model.

cero by Solarlux Sliding Doors.

Illustrating the best in sliding door quality with the top-of-the-line design is Cero sliding doors. These sophisticated sliding doors offer a unique look, minimalist proportions, expansive sizes and several unique design and performance features.

First of all, is the minimalist design at the heart of the Cero product.  Sliding panels come in sizes up to 15 square metres, creating large scale patio doors, and floor-to-ceiling glazing. Furthermore, the Cero system has an exceptional weight-bearing capability of nearly 1 tonne.  Even better, Cero sliding door designs offer flush thresholds, open corner arrangements, and an automatic sliding opening option too.

The Cero sliding door range comprises two different models. First of all is the standard double glazed product, Cero II available in all manner of styles, colours and configurations. Then, Cero III brings even better thermal insulation, triple glazing and a deeper frame depth. Moreover, Cero III meets Passivhaus standards.

At the same time, they provide weather, wind or rain protection for a patio or terrace. Within the range are also free-standing glass rooms or garden room constructions.

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.
