design & engineering

This world class, highly insulated folding door has been designed with a huge maximum panel width of 1500mm and a typical sight-line of just 105mm meaning it is a truly groundbreaking product that is perfectly suited to luxury new-builds, extensions and replacement installations.

Technological advancements based on consumer and market demands has led us to offer this leading innovation in bi-folding doors. Minimal frame, maximum light, security and energy efficiency are all key factors in designing doors and windows into buildings and the XP Vision ticks all the boxes for a stunning, and impressive glazing product that can enhance any property.

premium specification

The XP Vision boasts numerous features that other folding products do not. Slim sightlines and the ability to create huge, wide folding door panels are obvious benefits, but there are several nuances within the product that increase specification of the door even more.

An increased profile depth of 85mm packed with foam inserts, and thermal gaskets within all the panels greatly increase the energy efficiency of the door. The intermediate locking panels boast quadruple catches, which interlock the panels together, as well shoot-bolt locking rods in the top and bottom of the frame. The door panels themselves are held open with a heavy duty panel catch, plus catches at the head and foot of the outer frame when the door is stacked fully open. There is even an in-fill gasket under the traffic door to ensure debris doesn’t build up in the track when using the lead door to come in and out of the property.

We highly recommend seeing the product first hand, and our expert staff are available to talk through the many benefits of this product and why it is the leading folding door product in the market place.

The XP Vision can be viewed first hand in all of our showrooms, and at the various exhibitions we attend throughout the year.

XP Vision Frequently Asked Questions

Can I have a different RAL colour inside to out?

Yes, we can offer our bi-folding doors in a dual colour finish. The lead times for dual colour profiles do increase considerably though, so if you want a different colour finish inside & out contact our sales team.

Do you offer triple glazing?

Yes we can offer triple glazing. As standard we offer high performance Low E glazing, which is excellent at keeping the heat within a property, but we are happy to provide quotation’s & supply triple glazing if required or specified. The XP Vision is our most thermally efficient bi-folding door so ideal for combining with triple glazing when extremely low overall U values have been specified.

Can you have blinds in the bi-folds?

Yes, we can offer integral blinds throughout our range of bi-folding doors. Manual, solar & electronically operated Uniblinds are available with our XP View & XP10 range of bifolds. The XP Vision is not available with electronically operated Uniblinds but our solar option is available and it’s touch & remote control operation is equally as impressive.

Can you have an everyday door?

Yes, it is possible to incorporate an everyday access into a bi-folding door. An odd number of panels always offers this solution, with an even number panels it can be achieved with certain opening configurations.

Can you have a cat flap in a bifold door?

Yes, we can create hole in the glass itself, which can then incorporate a cat flap into it.

What is a standard height?

Industry standard height is 2100mm. All our bi-folding doors are bespoke so we can manufacture them to a specific height and always recommend trying to gain additional height in your bifolding doors because the taller the doors the slimmer they look and the natural light is gained from them.

A PERFECT COMBINATION

Bi-folding doors with Uniblinds

Integral blinds are the perfect solution for bi-folding doors. Easy to use and seamlessly integrated, they’re available as manual, solar and battery powered, and mains powered. Ideal for privacy-screening and controlling light, Uniblinds are contained within the window itself and can be concealed discreetly when not in use, and stay out of the way when the doors are opened.

SAFETY & SECURITY

SOLIDITY COMES AS STANDARD

Each panel of your aluminium bi-folding door is light, but solid. Injected with a liquid component that sets solid during the manufacturing process, our bi-folding doors are secure and reliable.

Our doors are designed with security in mind 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

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. We’ve thought about everything from stainless steel runners designed to be installed flush to your floor to eliminate trip hazards, to a magnetic panel catch to hold the doors in place.

TOUGH LOCKS

Security Lock Barrel Cylinders as standard

No industry-leading doors are complete without security lock barrel cylinders. We offer anti-snap, anti-drill, anti-pick and anti-bump lock cylinders as standard throughout our entire range of doors, including the XP Vision. Our 3-star diamond-rated BSI cylinders exceed the 2-star standard for Secured by Design accreditation, so you know you’re in safe hands with us. We even supply them in doors with half a barrel so internally your aluminium bi-folding doors are just as secure on the inside as the outside.

The keys for these cylinders can be cut at any locksmith, unlike other Secured by Design standard lock barrels, which need a specific lock card to have further keys cut. Supplied by one of the world’s leading manufacturers of lock cylinders, which we think is the perfect complement to our industry leading range of products.
