Key features of Stellar doors
We’ve reviewed the Stellar bifold giving you more information. Everything about Stellar bifolding doors delivers performance and reliability. Parallel stainless steel tracks provide a smooth slide and fold action. The four-wheel bifolding door rollers come with brushes to help keep the track clean. Double hinge fixings ensure opening sashes are always reliable.
The flexibility with existing PVCu components also provides several features and benefits over full aluminium bifolds. The doors come with PVCu beads offer substantially faster glazing than aluminium. At the same time, they’re easier to work with the product on site. The PVCu integration also extends to the range of cills and ancillary profiles you get with the product making installations easier for installers with less material stockholding required.

Stellar bifolds also offer the many benefits of PVCu beads. Pvcu beads substantially speed up glazing compared to aluminium beads.
