Enlighten your home

The XP View is by far the most superior quality bi-folding door system manufactured in the UK. The XP View offers the thinnest frames and largest glass areas available for a spectacular transformation of your home space.

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 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 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.

WHAT'S YOUR COLOUR?

Our three ranges offer some stunning popular colour finishes but we also offer the option of over 200 RAL colours so you can pick the exact colour you wish. There are also finishes to choose including wood grain and metallic effects.

And because they’re powder-coated, durability is never an issue. The colour is baked-on, providing a lasting finish that won’t peel off or lose its colour – and is guaranteed for 10 years.

SAFETY & SECURITY

SOLIDITY COMES AS STANDARD

The manufacturing process includes injecting the panels with a liquid component which sets rock-hard, making each panel light but as solid as concrete. It’s the perfect choice if you’re looking for something secure and reliable.

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

Your bi-folding doors will get a lot of use – that’s why we’ve designed them with the safety of you and your family in mind. These features include an adjustable panel catch to hold the doors in place and prevent them being taken in the wind or slamming shut from an open position. Finger safe gaskets prevent those little fingers from getting trapped, and because all of our doors are bespoke we’ll always install your bottom track as flush as possible, making sure there are no trip hazards when coming in or out of your doors.

TOUGH LOCKS

Security Lock Barrel Cylinders as standard

As part of our commitment to industry leading quality we offer high security, anti-snap, anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump lock cylinders as standard throughout our entire range of doors. These premium lock barrels are 3-star diamond rated BSI cylinders which exceeds the 2-star standard required for Secured by Design accreditation. We even supply these cylinders in doors with a half barrel so internally the lock cylinder boasts all the same security benefits meaning that if an intruder does get into a property they will not be able to break-out through our doors.

Unlike other Secured by Design standard lock barrels, the keys for the barrels supplied by Express can be cut at any locksmith without the need for a specific lock card to have further keys cut. The lock barrels themselves are supplied by one of the worlds’ leading manufacturers of lock cylinders, which we think is the perfect complement to our industry leading range of products.

Certass CQ Assured Scheme

We are members of the Certass Certified Quality assured scheme which is a quality assurance scheme for reputable and trustworthy Companies, designed to give consumers additional confidence when working with Companies for their renovation, maintenance and improvement projects.

The Certass CQ scheme isn’t a building regulations document but offers peace of mind for the customer that their works have been installed correctly and to the relevant industry standards. As part of the scheme our installations are independently audited by Certass every month and a certificate of conformity is sent to our customers upon the completion of our works.

 

All our installations are backed by the Certass Certified Quality scheme and after the completion of our woks our customers receive a personalised Certass CQ branded certificate reaffirming that the works have been completed to the relevant industry standards. Also included is 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 and extensions and newbuild 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

Integral blinds are the ideal solution for bi-folding doors! Large amounts of glass need screening for privacy and to control light, and when combined with large clear openings this causes problems. Because they are contained within the window itself, they can be concealed discretely when not in use, and stay out of the way when the doors are opened.
