Schuco bifolding doors are part of our luxury folding sliding doors range available at Aluhome. The Schuco name is one of the best when it comes to aluminium doors and windows for the home. Designed and engineered in Germany and made in the UK, for more than fifty years, Schuco products deliver quality, reliability, security and functionality. For bifolding doors, we explain why they’re so desirable and what they can bring to your property project.
Why Schuco bifolding doors are some of the best
First of all is how they look. The look of Schuco bifolding doors is not only incredibly attractive but designed to work in both modern and traditional houses, decors and architecture. The appearance of ASS70 FD, in particular, lends itself to new extensions perfectly. As well as this, you can use Schuco as a substantial upgrade over your existing patio doors.
Then comes the feel of these doors as you move them. One of the best indicators of quality is the smoothness of the slide and fold action. German-engineered bifolds slide, fold and feel like no other. Fluid action, yet light with a genuine feeling of quality and that solid feel at the same time. The only way to appreciate just how well a Schuco door moves is to try it. We’ve got on in our showroom and the meticulous movement of these doors is first class.
Even better with Schuco bifolds and especially with the 2021 model are the sizes. Schuco doors already go up to 1.2m wide and up to 3m high giving you a gorgeous looking patio door and filling your room with light.
Importantly when making a substantial investment in your home is the reputation of the product you buy. Schuco doesn’t just make bifolding doors or windows. Their products extend to fire-proof, bomb and blast resistant and even doors and windows for secure units such as maximum security prisons and Government buildings. So while you may not need this level of protection, it’s an excellent demonstration of just how advanced this system is.
Bifolding door panels up to 1.5m wide
Now the latest model with even better design gives you door panels of up to 1.5m wide. What does this mean for you? With most bifolding door openings at around 4 metres wide, most bifolding doors need four panels. The incredible size capability of Schuco now means most standard door opening need just three doors.
Fewer panels means fewer vertical mullions and bigger glass sizes. Furthermore, you get even better views with the doors closed and a look similar to a large patio door rather than a bifold. They look simply stunning.
The sightlines are another great reason to consider Schuco bifolding doors in your home. With 122mm mullions, this is one of the slimmest bifolding doors on the market. And if you want to go even thinner with the same luxury German design and feel, our Solarlux bifolding door is even thinner.
Other amazing features of a Schuco bifold include beautiful contemporary handles on the traffic door and equally impressive handles and door pulls on the additional doors.
Finally, Schuco bifolds give you some of the best security features, internal glazing beads and excellent U-Values depending on the glass you choose in your doors. There’s the standard glass being toughened safety glass, having a soft-coat low-emissivity coating, warm edge spacer bars and argon gas fill. Or you can enhance the thermal performance even more with triple glazing.
For the door threshold, not only do Schuco bifolding doors give you a standard or low threshold. We can recess this achieving a flush floor inside and decking or slabs outside. For wheelchair users there’s a solution here too, equally useful for pushchairs or children’s bikes.
