New build bi-folding doors corner project
To create a modern look to this new build property, Sunfold Systems was contacted by Diamond Home Improvements to provide folding sliding doors which could open fully with no corner divide.
The area in question was to add an open element to this new housing development’s lounge area so that the doors would slide with ease to either side of the opening and meet at the corner when closed. With no heavy wall structure above through its use as a balcony area, a strong tracking frame system which meets strict building regulations was used to maintain the support of the ceiling above alleviating the requirement for additional support.
As part of the brief, the aluminium sliding doors were powder coated grey to fit with the exterior detailing of the property and also given a special marine treatment designed to protect the finish from saline environments especially apparent in coastal towns. With this in mind all Sunfold’s sliding folding doors come with anodised aluminium hinges and running gear to also help prevent corrosion.
The fitting team had no prior experience in fitting folding sliding doors, so Sunfold provided onsite aid to train the installers in fitting the bespoke SFK70 folding sliding door system.
