Bi-folding Doors

Open up your home with Solarlux

Bi-folding doors from Solarlux set the standard with a flowing transition between the inside and out to increase your sense of well-being.

Unlike traditional sliding doors, which can leave a large section of the opening covered by glass even when fully open, the individual elements of the bi-folding door gather up into a slender bundle of panels to one side.

The custom-made flexible bi-folding doors by Solarlux can be opened or closed to the exact width you require across the entire opening with just a flick of the wrist.

Even when closed the large expanses of glass create a feeling of freedom, provide more light and give  an  unobstructed view of your garden.

As required, the individual panels glide quietly and smoothly inwards or outwards, folding to the right or left – they can be incorporated with tilt-and-turn panels and/or window elements also – the possibilities are endless!

Solarlux Megaline

THE GERMAN DESIGN COUNCIL’S JURY DECISION

Solarlux Megaline, Ireland

TOP-QUALITY DESIGN OPENS THE DOOR TO NEW POSSIBILITIES
In explaining their decision, the jury were keen to emphasise not just the product’s high-quality design, but also the new architectural possibilities it offers designers.

“The new Megaline bi-folding door from Solarlux can be used to create moving window fronts up to 4.5 m in height. This throws open the door for some spectacular architectural concepts that create the perfect visual harmony between interiors flooded with light and the outdoor world around them. The aluminium profile system offers a high level of thermal insulation and a clear-cut design that lends it an elegant, modern, high-quality aesthetic and puts a distinctive twist on buildings in a wide range of styles.”
