Two sets of our Schuco ASS70FD bifold doors.

This large extension to a home in South East London was perfect for our Schuco ASS70FD bifolding doors.

Like many others, this client came to us through the web enquiry form on Schuco’s website. Having already seen and used the products at the home of a friend, she was totally sold on the door system and just needed to find a good company to install and guarantee two sets for her.

James met with the client on site to discuss the product in more detail as well as the specific opening configurations of the doors. This project was to feature two of the most popular opening configurations we do in our Schuco ASS70FD bifold door range. Firstly, a 5 pane set all sliding one way and secondly, a 3 pane set all sliding the other way. The reason these two configurations are popular and sought after is because they allow the homeowner to have what is called a ‘traffic door’ at one end, which can be opened easily and independently of other panes – much like a back door. This allows quick and easy in and out access without the need to open more than one pane. The chart below demonstrates these options in more detail.

Bi-fold doors configuration Golden Rule

As you can see on the diagram above, with an odd number of panes, it is possible to have a traffic door and have all the panes sliding the same way. This is something our customers often specifically ask for, and it’s not hard to see why.

In addition to the bifold doors, we also installed a fixed 90 degree return window too.

We used our Saint Gobain Planitherm Total Plus 6.4mm laminated and toughened glass with black warm edge composite spacer bars. The profile is RAL 7016 anthracite grey, which has almost become the modern extension standard.

As is clear from the before and after photos, using our modern aluminium windows and doors, you can turn an ordinary house into quite a special space!
