The newest Schüco bi-fold door is now available with triple glazing and with a wider range of opening options offering greater design freedom to create light-filled, energy efficient homes.
The AS FD aluminium bi-fold door system can achieve very large panel sizes of up to 3.5 metres high by 1.5 metres wide. Combined with slim sightlines of only 90mm this offers greater views with minimal obstruction.
First launched in the Spring with a profile depth of 75mm, the system can now be specified as a triple glazed version with a profile depth of 90mm. The highly insulated AS FD 90.HI offers increased airtightness which enables U-values as low as 1.0 W/m²K.
The addition of new opening options offers even greater flexibility. Up to nine panels can be combined without fixed panes, and doors can be folded inwards or outwards, in one direction only or opened like a pair of curtains to the left and the right. For added convenience, a ‘traffic door’ can also be integrated to give quick access to the outside without having to open the entire system.
The large folding sliding panels can be moved easily and almost silently thanks to the smooth-running stainless-steel roller system, and four different threshold height options, including a 4mm and 15mm ramped option, to offer flexibility and ease of access.
There is no compromise on security either as the new bi-fold door is tested to burglar resistance RC2 and is covered by Secured by Design, the official police security initiative of which Schüco UK is a member.
The addition of these new options for the Schüco AS FD bi-fold door enhances the flexibility of the system allowing the realisation of almost any design requirement.
