Thanks to the influence of Grand Designs and our desire for more light and space, bifold doors have become a phenomenon. If you have the space to stack the Bifold Doors to the left or right, or on both sides, when they are fully open, then a Bifold Door could be ideal for you. Bifold doors can be fully opened to around 90 per cent of the full opening width, allowing you the flexibility to let in lots of fresh air and move around freely. On days when you don’t wish to open the doors fully, you can choose to have a single traffic door, allowing you easy access between your home and garden all year round. KAT’s Bifold doors are the ultimate alternative to Schuco Bifolding doors.
KAT Aluminium bifold doors offer exceptional weather resistance and are made to bespoke sizes to suit your project.
We manufacture AluK BS70 Aluminium Bifolds in Cheshire. Aluminium is the perfect material because it allows for narrow, aesthetically pleasing frames, is extremely strong and very low maintenance.
Our doors have been independently tested against wind, water and air pressure. They come with an extended 10 year warranty and our simulation tests have shown that they have a life expectancy in excess of 25 years.
Aluminium is the optimum material for manufacturing windows and doors and that is why it is widely specified by Architects for most serious new build and refurbishment projects.
Aluminium doors require very little maintenance, just an occasional wipe with a damp soapy cloth and a regular check to ensure the track is kept free from grit and small stones to ensure the doors continue to run smoothly. Aluminium is more resistant to the elements than uPVC and is not likely to warp or rot. We offer a 10 year warranty on standard paint and a 25 year warranty on Marine Grade paint.
With our huge range of exclusive doors we also offer you a complete range of accessories from handles, to threshold options, to opening configurations.
A lever handle in Black, White or Satin is fitted to the master or traffic door, with a pop-out ‘T’ shaped handle to the intermediate doors which allows for square flush stacking panels when the doors are fully open.
Please consider your choice of ancillary hardware carefully because that is what you will eventually notice most when your products are installed.
Our bifolding doors are designed to discourage intruders, thanks to the security hinges, locking mechanisms and a unique heavy-duty roller design to provide the security and
reliability demanded in high traffic applications.
All these elements prevent our bifolds being lifted off their base channel or being jemmied when closed and the whole system conforms to PAS 24:2016 security standards.
We carry stock of the two most popular colours and finishes, so that we can manufacture your bespoke AluK Bifold Doors with a fast turnaround. These are Anthracite Grey RAL 7016 in a matt finish and White RAL 9910 in a high gloss finish.
