Features and Benefits of Schuco bi folding doors.

Schuco bi folding doors benefit from the very best in German engineering, top design features and offer many advantages over other bifolding door systems.  Design, manufacturing, functionality and excellent aesthetics go to make arguably one of the best sliding folding doors.

Wider and taller than other bifolding doors.

The Schuco ASS 70 FD Bifolding door comes designed for those seeking larger panels.  Most other doors come at sizes up to 2.4 or 2.7 metres maximum height.  However, Schuco doors come at sizes up to 3 metres or taller depending upon the overall door design and installation. The maximum panel width is 1200mm.

Slim sight lines

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.

Weather Rated Threshold

The threshold has a good weather rating with drainage to deflect any water ingress outside. Of course, Schuco does come with a high level of weather protection. For those wanting a lower threshold, a flush option provides a solution for interior bifold doors such as room dividers.

Innovative Design Features

Schuco bifolding 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.

Schuco bifolding doors offer a variable adjustment on the width (up to 10mm).  In other words, this adjustment allows the doors to fit precisely, also making them more reliable long term.  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.

Unique security and top quality hardware

Some bifolding doors use “off the shelf” locking systems and handles and often hardware found in plastic doors.  Schuco bifolding doors benefit from unique locking systems and bespoke hinges. As well as this, the premium door handles come with the same modern Schuco design and branding.   For this reason, Schuco bi folding doors come with fully integrated parts and components all designed around each other.
