Why buy Schüco?
The way we live makes a statement about who we are. Schüco Bifolding doors are luxury products, beyond the budgets of many. They are selected for their pure quality, their exceptional engineering and for their performance guarantee. They will add value to your property and be admired by your friends because buying KAT Schueco windows and doors is not about spending, it’s about making an investment.
Our Schüco ASS70 bifolding door system combines elegant contemporary styling, architecture, design and function, with exceptional energy efficiency. Widely acknowledged by leading Architects as ‘best in class’, these doors are simply superb.
Slim aluminium profile sightlines guarantee more glass and less frame, admitting more natural light, which together with industry leading U values helps create the optimum modern living space. Security and lower fuel bills are a given, of course.
What sets our Bifolding doors apart from all other bifolds and concertina doors in Europe is their extra heavy-duty hardware and running gear, only available via Schuco. This makes our bifolds a true ‘Fit and Forget’ product.
What sets KAT apart in the UK, is that we uniquely adopt the German fit and forget approach and only use 100% authentic Schüco parts – we recommend that you don’t order a door from anyone else unless you have the suppliers guarantee that it will be fitted 100% with Schuco hardware.
We specialise in the manufacture of the ASS70 Bifolding door system designed by Schuco, arguably the most respected aluminium systems company in Europe. Architects, designers and those seeking the ultimate in design, performance and quality choose Schüco. A global brand, synonymous with ingenious design, superb quality and precision engineering.
Often seen and admired in Grand Designs programmes, Schuco bifolds are chosen for the superior advantages they bring over other bifold solutions. Every detail from the initial design, to how the doors are manufactured and installed, all combine to deliver the ultimate aluminium bifolding door solution.
Our Schuco door system was skillfully designed to be slim but hugely strong, which allows us to make very tall or very wide doors, which almost every other bifold system fails to compete with. Even at our maximum sizes, KAT doors will still not snag or drop. If you can afford the ‘Rolls Royce’ of Bifolding doors, then a KAT Schüco door is a no brainer.
Our Schüco ‘super size’ aluminium bifolding door system was conceived to satisfy the desires of the most demanding glazing projects. Designed in Germany where large glazed openings have been commonplace for many years, this door system provides the ultimate solution with the fewest sightline obstructions.

Aluminium is the world’s most abundant metal and is the third most common element, comprising 8% of the earth’s crust and has a strength to weight ratio superior to steel. The excellent strength to weight ratio of aluminium has made it an important material for the construction of aircraft, ships, many cars and also commercial vehicles.
When the surface of aluminium metal is exposed to air, a protective oxide coating forms almost instantaneously which gives excellent corrosion resistance. This oxide layer can be further enhanced with surface treatments such as anodising. It is widely recognised that aluminium is the best material for making windows and doors from, when they are to be installed in marine environments.
The recyclability of aluminium is unparalleled. When recycled there is no degradation in properties when recycled aluminium is compared to virgin aluminium. Furthermore, recycling of aluminium only requires around 5 percent of the input energy required to produce virgin aluminium metal. Currently around 60% of aluminium metal is recycled at the end of its lifecycle but this percentage can still be vastly improved.
Aluminium windows require minimal maintenance; just a wipe with a damp cloth and a mild detergent, plus regular checks to ensure there is nothing fouling the easy operation of the window. Aluminium does not attract dirt like PVCu does and it is very unlikely to deform. We offer a 10 Year warranty on standard paint finishes and can offer a 25 Year warranty on our Marine Grade finishes.
Furniture for our Schüco Bifolds can be manufactured in austenitic steel which is a marine grade finish for coastal applications. Our standard ‘bespoke to KAT’ range is perfect for most domestic applications of course.

Rest assured that our bifolds meet the strict requirements of PAS 24:2016, the industry standard for Enhanced Security Performance.
Aluminium offers probably the widest choice of window colours and surface finishes of any construction material. It offers a high degree of stability with minimal maintenance and guarantees a long service life.

Take care when choosing your frame and door handles. Your selection should be influenced by the style of your property, surrounding architecture or the doors within your home.
