ENGINEERING EXCELLENCE

The engineering excellence of the door means that although the face widths are narrow, with a typical sight line of just 120 mm, the frames are incredibly strong, which ensures that each individual exterior bi-fold door panel can go up to an industry leading 1200 mm wide as well as up to 3000 mm high.

ENGINEERED FOR PRECISION

Unlike other folding doors that are top hung, our unique system bears no weight loading on the support above. All of our exterior bi-folding doors run on stainless steel wheels with high precision bearings, which give an effortless gliding operation and extreme durability.

UNRIVALLED STABILITY

As there is no weight at the head of the door, the bi-fold will not cause your RSJ to bow or deflect. So its weight doesn’t need to be taken into account when calculating steel requirements.

KEY FEATURES

  • Bottom Hung with heavy-duty stainless-steel wheels and high precision bearings
  • 1200mm wide folding door panels, larger panels means more glass and less frame with six-metre-wide doors only needing five folding door panels.
  • Moving corner post available.
  • Ultra Slim sightline of just 120mm, which coupled with large folding door panels means less frame and more glass.
  • Heavy Duty Panel Catch which secures the traffic door in place when operating the door.
  • Precision Adjustment within the side jambs of the outer frame meaning the door can easily be re-aligned even after years of use.
  • Finger safe gaskets so no need to worry about little fingers getting caught.

WHAT'S YOUR COLOUR?

Whether you’re thinking a modern grey will complement your stonework nicely, or you want to make a statement with a bold colour, you’re in the right place. With three ranges offering popular colour choices and the option of over 200 RAL colours as well, you know you can pick the exact colour you want with Express. You can even choose wood grain or metallic finishes.

There’s no need to worry about durability either. Your bi-folding door is powder-coated, so the lasting finish won’t peel off or lose its colours. The colour is guaranteed for 10 years.

SAFETY & SECURITY

SOLIDITY COMES AS STANDARD

If you’re looking for an exterior bi-folding door that is secure, reliable and easy to use, then you’re in the right place. Our doors are manufactured with a liquid component injected into each panel, which sets hard, leaving the doors light yet solid as concrete.

Our aluminium bi-folding doors offer best-in-class security with features such as:

  • Multi point locks ensuring the door is strong and secure
  • Concealed gearing that cannot be seen or attacked when the door is closed
  • The system is glazed from the inside.
  • Secured by Design specification available.

DESIGNED FOR SAFETY

We know the importance of door safety, especially if you have a family. That’s why our exterior bi-folding doors are made with safety in mind. From an adjustable panel catch to hold doors in place, to finger safe gaskets to prevent little fingers from getting trapped, and even ensuring a flush installation to prevent trip hazards, you can be happy in the knowledge that your doors are as safe as can be.

TOUGH LOCKS

Security Lock Barrel Cylinders as Standard

We offer premium lock barrels throughout our entire range of doors, including the XP View bi-folding doors. Our commitment to industry-leading quality means that we only use high security 3-star diamond rated BSI cylinders, supplied by one of the world’s leading lock cylinder manufacturers, as standard. Anti-snap, anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump, they go over and above the standard needed for Secured by Design accreditation.

We even supply these lock cylinders in doors with half a barrel, so internally the door boasts all the same security benefits as externally, so you know you have peace of mind when you choose Express’ exterior bi-folding doors.

Our lock barrels don’t need a special lock card to get keys cut, unlike other Secured by Design standard lock barrels, which means getting spare or emergency keys is easy.

Certass CQ Assured Scheme

Here at Express, we know how important it is to have confidence in the companies working on your project. That’s why we’re member of Certass. A quality assurance scheme designed to independently audit renovation, maintenance and improvement projects, Certass checks that work has been completed to relevant industry standards.

 

Customers will receive a personalised Certass CQ branded certificate reaffirming that the works have been completed to standard, and a 10-year insurance backed guarantee to sit alongside our own comprehensive guarantee:

  • The certification includes all works completed and installed by Express.
  • The scheme covers replacement installations, extensions and new build projects.
  • The scheme includes installations of glazed roofs.
  •  The scheme covers all our works across the whole of the UK.

A PERFECT COMBINATION

Bi-folding doors with Uniblinds

Make your open space private with integral blinds. Not only can they make sure that no one sees in, but Uniblinds can help you control light levels too. Contained within your bifolding door, they can be concealed discreetly when not in use. Whether you’re looking for something that won’t disrupt the clean and modern lines of your XP View or you just want something low maintenance, Uniblinds are the perfect solution.
