Bi-Fold doors – open up your world.
The jewel in the crown of the Alumina range – our bi-folding door system enables a full wall of your home or property to be opened up to the outside.
Ideal for commercial or heavy duty applications, Alumina sliding bi-fold doors offer added strength and security.
Spanning up to 7 panes wide, Alumina bi-folding doors can be supplied with almost any powder coated RAL finish, or foiled with a realistic factory fitted woodgrain foil.
A true aluminium bi-fold system, Alumina doors are available with 28mm double or 36/40mm triple glazing, offering U-values as low as 1.3W/m²K.
Why choose Alumina bi-fold doors?
With sash sizes from 0.6m to 1.2m and up to 2.5m high, Alumina bi-folding doors are ideal for heavy duty or commercial applications,
Built with Liniar’s ModLok™ technology and thermal patented polyamide lock, Alumina bi-folding doors can achieve a U-value as low as 1.3W/m²K.
Alumina bi-folds can also be fully foiled to perfectly match the Liniar range of windows and doors, or powder coated in any RAL colour of your choice. Even better – by matching windows and doors this offers a single point of guarantee for the homeowner.
Alumina bi-folding doors are supplied as standard in plain white, black or grey powder coated finishes. Your fully aluminium doors can also be personalised by choosing almost any RAL colour.
Alumina can also be ordered with a wide range of different colour precision fitted foils, ensuring a perfect match to Liniar PVCu windows.
All Alumina doors are available with a choice of five threshold options – including the rebated aluminium frame to the 23.5m high low threshold and the Part M compliant threshold with tray.
A full size Alumina door has also been weather tested with a thermally broken threshold, achieving incredible results – beating the minimum requirements for both air and water tightness by more than double the most severe pressures within BS 6375.
Alumina is brought to you by the same team of experts as the innovative, energy efficient, PVCu Liniar window system.
The Liniar design team has now developed three bi-folding door systems from scratch, giving consumers the ultimate in choice and flexibility when it comes to selecting the best bi-fold to fabricate, to install and to use every day.
The very first bespoke designed uPVC bi-fold to be designed and launched in the UK, Liniar’s Standard bi-fold features thermally efficient profiles, slim fixings with hidden hinges for additional security and is available up to 4 panes wide – all in a wide choice of colours, finishes and threshold options. Bottom rolling, the Liniar Standard bi-fold doesn’t require additional strengthening of existing lintels as all the weight is on the bottom of the doors. With U-values as low as 1.3 W/m²K, the Standard bi-fold is a cost-effective and secure bi-folding door system.
Launched in 2014, the patented ModLok bi-fold system offers a high-security locking mechanism with combined reinforcement, and offers the highest thermal efficiency of any Liniar uPVC bi-fold, at just 1.0 W/m²K. Its beautifully sleek appearance and detailed design features make it a popular choice for both modern and traditional dwellings, and it can span up to 7 panes wide in a variety of opening configurations. With PAS 24 and Secured by Design accreditation, the ModLok bi-fold has been cyclic tested by robot to more than 12 times British Standards.
The ModLok bi-fold system also won a coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the Innovation category in 2017, in recognition for its patented exoskeletal structure. This prevents the contraction and expansion of uPVC, making ModLok bi-folds suitable for high traffic entrances up to 7 panes wide.
The very latest development from the Liniar team, Alumina is a ‘true’ aluminium bi-folding door system that encompasses the highest degree of energy efficiency combined with an optional ‘warm touch’ foiled exterior. Ideal for large scale and commercial applications, each pane of an Alumina door can span up to 1.2 metres wide and 2.5 metres high, and up to 7 panes across. With PAS 24 and Secured by Design accreditation granted at the first attempt, the Alumina bi-fold also offers the ultimate in security.
