Carl F Groupco reports that bi-fold doors were a head turning feature on its stand at the FIT Show. The hardware distributor attributes three key reasons for the growth in popularity for folding sliding doors: living areas are enhanced at a time when many people can’t afford to move, space is maximised and natural light is increased.
Supporting the trend towards bi-folds, the company’s range of fittings has been expanded. The
‘T-Fold’ is a fully inclusive kit available exclusively from Carl F Groupco. Designed and manufactured in the UK, it is the first complete set of hardware components developed specifically for timber folding sliding doors.
A key benefit of the T-Fold is major simplification of the ordering and assembly process. With add on packages for additional door leaves, rapid product sourcing is enabled and a harmonised solution is provided. Developed to offer timber joinery manufacturers total flexibility when designing bespoke folding sliding door and frame detail, top quality materials are used throughout providing a superior finish and durable components.
Supporting the bi-fold boom, Carl F Groupco confirms the continued success of the popular FS Portal hardware for aluminium, PVCu and timber profiles. The improved ‘FS Portal PLUS’ hardware is available from the fittings supplier with enhancements to provide a low threshold bottom track, now fitted with brush pile to reduce debris and aid smooth operation. The top track now features a return leg to secure the top wheel into the track.
