Smarts 1000 New Generation Slimline Bi-folds

Bi-folding doors help to create an open, flexible and modern space for both living and working environments, making a real statement of class, elegance and versatility, keeping you warm on the inside in the winter while providing a panoramic view of the outside, and in the summer opening the inside out for the ultimate in luxurious dramatic space ideal for entertaining or pure self indulgence.

The Smarts 1000 Bi-fold door system offers a door designed to bring a graceful elegance to your home, they allow for over a 90% clear opening - bringing the outside in, and are very competitively priced, with slim profiles to minimise frame and maximise the glazing area.

Widely recognised by most installers as one of the best Bi-Folding doors on the market today.

The doors are manufactured using the unique POLYAMIDE thermal break system supplied by SMARTS.

This superior system guarantees excellent performance coupled with unparalleled insulation and excellent long-term reliability.

These doors are October 2010 Document L compliant with an overall U value of 1.7

Pendulum Handles - On Each Intermediate style
With the Smarts 1000 Bi-folding Doors you have a pendulum handle on each intermediate panel. This handle operates heavy duty shoot bolts between each interlock and gives you the ability to have outside access without the need for a traffic door. These handles are slim-line, simple and look very aesthetically pleasing.

They have a key locking facility for added security and come in a range of different colours.

Bi-fold, slim-line Pendulum Handles

Slim Sightlines
The Smarts 1000 is our slimmest bifold door. Being manufactured from aluminium means that the profiles can be made very slim, with out compromising the strength of the Bi-folding doors. This not only looks much more aesthetically pleasing, but allows you to maximise the glass area, letting in more light.

The meeting stiles are just 132mm and each door leaf is just 60mm wide.

Slim meeting stiles

Traffic Door Handles
A traffic door allows quick and easy access through your bi-folding doors from the inside and outside, operating independently of the folding panels, much like a standard residential door.

You can either have standard Lever-Lever handles or Pendulum handles on your traffic doors. Lever-Lever handles are highly functional, while having Pendulum handle on your traffic door as well as your intermediate panels gives you a consistent and coordinated look.

Bogey Wheel Assemblies
Our Smarts 1000 Bi-folding doors run on four wheel bogey assemblies that travel on twin stainless steel tracks, resulting in easy graceful operation.

These high strength rollers exceed the required weight factors, so that no matter what the weight of the doors you still get the same easy-side action, for which our bifolds are known.

Tight Stacking
Our Smarts 1000 Bi-folding doors fold open and slide away into a tight stack. The neat stacks can be right, left or split between right and left to an unused part of your garden or room.

The ability to fold back up to ten panels for over a 90% opening is one of the biggest draws of bi-folding doors.

Tight Stacking Panels

Shoot Bolts
Heavy duty shoot bolts secure the door between each intermediate panel (each operated by a Pendulum Handle). They are specially designed to fit exactly into the outer-frame, tightly securing the doors in place.

The shoot bolts are top and bottom of each intermediate panel, protecting the doors against forced entry.
