Products in the award-winning Conservation Secure™ range carry Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation. This is the UK police flagship initiative which aims to design-out crime and requires that products must meet challenging test criteria before they can carry SBD approval.
Joining an impressive collection of SBD approved Conservation Secure™ products, which includes casement windows, elegant French doorsets, single
external doors and robust entrance doors, is the popular bi-folding door which has been tested to meet PAS24:2012 Enhanced Security.
“We are delighted with this result,” says Owen Dare, technical director. “Our product designs are constantly under review to ensure they deliver the very highest levels of thermal and acoustic performance and offer outstanding levels of security. With our continuous programme development we can be sure our products meet legislation and remain ahead of the market.”
These made-to-measure bi-folding doors are designed with Brio operating gear and an open-out configuration is fitted to a top hung track system. Flush hinges are attractive and unobtrusive helping to preserve the style of these attractive doors. The maximum size of 3000m high by 5950mm wide offers stunning aesthetic impact with maximised space and light while a maximum of seven leaves help to create a dramatic opening.
Conservation Secure™ bi-folding doors, manufactured in Britain, are made from clear grade, engineered timber for maximum strength and stability. The standard spec features an ovolo sash profile, with or without glazing bars, and an option of lamb’s tongue and fine lamb’s tongue profiles to coordinate with our windows and doors. They are also available with a square profile to achieve a more contemporary style. Internal glazing improves both aesthetics and security. Factory-finished double glazed argon filled panels with low E coating can be exchanged for laminated or obscure glass and there is a choice of ironmongery. Available with 12mm, 14mm or 24mm double glazed units they are manufactured to Wood Window Alliance criteria. Products are supplied with three coats of high quality factory-applied micro-porous paint, or stain, and heritage colours and a dual-finish is also available.
“Surely there is no better way than letting the inside out and the outside into your home by introducing bi-folding doors that will contribute to the way you live your life,” says Dare. “And always in the confidence of knowing that appearance and security is paramount.”
