Livingwood timber bi-fold doors are a revolution in bifold door design. They are manufactured with heat treated beech to create an incredibly hard timber, which is almost immune from the expansion and contraction normally associated with timber doors. This is particularly important on bi-folding doors when multiple leaves can expand and trap the door, a typical problem with our UK damp weather. The timber is so stable it allows for an improved thickness of paint to be used of 1.6mm compared to 0.8mm for normal joinery, this is then sanded by robots for a smooth sleek finish. The quality of paint finish is similar to car body work and a life span of between 25-50 years depending on exposure. The running gear is based upon the running gear used in car production lines and is designed to travel 10,000kms.
We can also achieve incredibly low U values, 1.08W/m²k for double glazed and as low as 0.66 with triple glazing. The stepped frame design results in a 3 seal system giving an extremely high level of airtightness compared to conventional bi-folding door systems.
The Livingwood folding door can be supplied with 3-8 leaves and with many different options for the location of the opening. For all types, there is a choice between outward and inward folding. The individual door can be up to 85-90cm wide – depending on the height, type of glass etc. The number of opening options, however – including the possibility of single or double opening – depends on the chosen solution.
There are 36 types of configurations that we can offer for our wooden bifolding door products. Download the door configuration information here
Standard, double or triple glazing
The addition of the aluminium cladding enables the simple incorporation of triple glazing which enhances the thermal performance of the window. There are two options available depending on the size of sash required.
Our glazing packages are all based around the best available technology. Standard glass is low e coating float glass. Double glazed units achieve a centre pane U value of 1.0W/m²K, while triple glazed units can achieve centre pane U values of 0.6 W/m²K.
Other options include;
- Solar control
- Venetian blinds within the glass
- Acoustic glass
- Various options for obscure glass
