Visofold Bi-Fold Door

The SMART Visofold Bifold doors offer impressive openings that can unite internal and external areas creating unique living and social areas and can be used in domestic applications as an alternative to sliding doors.

Used commercially in a bar, cafe or restaurant, the SMART Visofold bifold door creates a glazed screen that allows in the maximum light in inclement weather, and will also easily glide to open up an entire wall in warmer weather.

All Visofold profiles feature a polyamide thermal break that enhances the thermal performance of the profile and improves overall U-values. EPDM high quality gaskets and weather brushes aid weather resistance, conforming to Building Regualations Document L 2010.

Security is assured by multi-point lock mechanisms on main opening sashes, and shoot-bolt locking on floating mullions. All Visofold doors have the option of either low-thresholds for unimpeded, easy access, or rebated thresholds that offer improved weather resistance.

Attractive, slim-line profiles offer reduced sightlines

Levers and Handles

The range of furniture includes traditional lever / lever handles Multipoint hook locks are fitted as standard to opening sliders. Visoglide’s sliding mechanism ensures reliable operation.

Lever / Lever Handle A traditional lever / lever handle provides a latching facility similar to that of a standard front or back door.

A lever / lever handle should be used on main entrance doors, or doors that have high a volume of traffic/people opening and closing the door on regular basis, such as doors that will be operated by the general public in bars, restaurants, showrooms etc

Note that a lever / lever handle does not enable the doors to fold back flat upon themselves. A magnetic door stop is used to hold the doors back in the open position and protect the handle from hitting the door.

Slimline Handle Our slimline handles are a fold back flush handle specifically designed for bifold doors:

Ÿ- Slimline exterior and interior handle ensures door leafs fold back flat Ÿ- Shootbolt locking with mortice deadbolt for added security Ÿ- Available in wide range of standard finishes, including white, black, chrome and satin silver

Note that the slimline handle does not offer a latch function. If you require a latch function then a standard lever / lever handle is required.
