Fitting our bi-folding doors is not difficult and we have taken every step possible to make fitting our bifolds as simple as possible. However installing a bifold does require a lot of due care and attention. These are our bifold fitting options:
Each of these options is explained below
The majority of our customers are trade customers who require nothing more than for us to manufacture and supply them with our quality products. If you require 'supply only' we will supply you with bi-folding doors that have been manufactured to your exact specifications and have been fully tested at our factory. We will guarantee the doors, but you will take full responsibility for providing the correct manufacturing sizes. You can have your doors delivered, or collect from our factory. You would then install the doors yourselves.
Please be aware that when we say manufacturing sizes we mean the overall sizes you want us to make the doors, and not the sizes of the hole you are installing them into. You will need to allow for fitting tolerances and also take the threshold, projection cill, floor levels and head extension for trickle vents into consideration.
Installing bi-folding doors requires specialised care and attention. If you are a trade company or individual that doesn't want the hassle of installing bi-folding doors, then why not get us to supply, deliver and 'fix' your bi-fold doors into an existing and fully prepared aperture. When 'fixing' our doors we will install the doors with due care and attention, toe and heel the panels, foam the frame (where necessary), fully test the doors, and leave the doors in a perfect working condition.
Our fixing service is available within areas A + B on the map (See map).
Please note that our 'fixing' service is only available for our bi-folding doors and is by no means a full installation service. This service does not include (but not limited to) mastic, sealing outside, plastering, rendering, making water tight, removing existing doors or preparing the hole.
We come out to site and survey the prepared aperture, take responsibility for the manufacturing sizes and the fixing of the doors within the hole. We will guarantee our workmanship and the doors. Then we'll 'fix' your bi-fold doors as detailed above (see fixing only service).
Please make sure all involved parties; builders, homeowner and other trades are aware of what work is and is not done by Duration Windows. Please contact our Sales Department for more information and advice.
