Four Wheel Bogie Assemblies (Rollers)

These high quality strengthened bogie wheel assemblies that run on twin stainless steel tracks and have been tested to take over 200kg in weight, which is more than three time the weight of the Aluminium Bi Fold Doors. This results in a smooth easy-glide opening action for years to come. With dedicated bogie guides for added stability and security.

Door Handles

With conventional and ergonomic design, lever-lever handles are an industry standard. Lever-lever handles are fitted to the internal and external face of each door, allowing inside and outside access.

High Strength Door Magnets

Aluminium Bi Fold Doors may need to be fitted with high strength magnets. These are used to secure the opening door to the adjacent panel, holding it in an open position. This also acts as a buffer preventing the opening door from knocking against the other panels.
