Aluminium bi-folding doors for a social club
Aluminium sliding folding door project for the Old Chelmsfordian Association's Sports & Social Club - As part of a combined new build and refurbishment project at the Old Chelmsfordian Association's Sports & Social Club in Essex, Sunfold Systems installed the SFK70 aluminium bi-folding door system to maximise light and space within the club lounge and provide members with a panoramic view of the playing fields.
The club, which includes within its grounds two football pitches, one cricket square and three tennis courts, has a club lounge which can be hired out for private functions, so when it came to the new extension of the club lounge, the owners wanted to enhance the décor and maximise the view to the outdoors.
Gerry McCabe, project manager on behalf of the Old Chelmsfordian Association said: "Our club lounge is south facing and looks directly onto the playing fields so we wanted to make the most of the potential of the space. Sunfold Systems provided the club with a high quality folding sliding door system that opens out along the entire side of the building, with nine doors on one side and three on the other. Light now floods into the space and members can watch matches from the comfort of the lounge - we are very happy with the results."
The SFK70 bi-folding door system included thermally broken aluminium frames; slim sightlines; safety gasket cushioning to protect against finger trapping; high security locks and anodised aluminium hinges as well as semi-weathered track that was recessed into the ground to provide a smooth transition between internal and external space.
