Manual & Electrically Operated Blinds

The Only True Solution For Bi Folding Doors & Windows!

Our Pleated & Venetian integral blinds ensure the insulating properties of the double glazing unit are maintained, while providing protection from dirt and weather conditions. The blind mechanism is totally encapsulated within the unit so here is no added risk of the unit breaking down.

Manufactured to the highest standards and specifications. Once sealed in the dust-free environment of the glazing cavity they will require no cleaning, always appear new and are protected from damage.

Available in a wide range of colours, you will have no trouble finding a pleated or venetian blind that fits your room style and décor. The blinds offer complete privacy and, with the touch of a button, you can cover up dreary grey skies or let the glorious sun shine in.

5 different operating mechanisms to choose from; 3 manually operated mechanisms and 2 electronically controlled mechanisms. Find out which option is suitable for you here

Door Construction

Our doors are manufactured to a 44- 64mm finish.

StockFold doors are usually 44mm thick allowing for a 4:6:4 double glazed unit. These doors still meet part L building regulations but are not as thermally insulative as our thicker doors.

InternaFold doors vary from 44mm to 64mm depending on the usage. 44mm thick doors are used if solid panels or single toughened safety glass is required. 54mm thick doors are used when standard double glazed units are required. 64mm thick doors are used when integrated blinds or triple glazing is specified.

Integrated Pleated Fly Screen

The 612 Retractable Pleated Insect Screen offers a screening solution all our door applications due to its innovative design. Developed by Brio for flexibility and tested vigorously for durability, the 612 Screen is a popular product worldwide. With our climate ever changing, the fly screen is becoming more and more popular in the UK.

Calculated U Values

The U-value assesses the rate of heat loss / gain through all the thicknesses of the combined elements that make up a building component such as a window, door, roof etc. It is a way of measuring the insulating properties of the building element. The lower the U-value, the better insulated the building element is. So a window with a low U-value should prevent heat loss / gain better than a window with a high U-value. We can provide U Value Certificates with all our door and window systems if you require them. Read more for further information and too see a sample certificate from one of our window systems.

Self Draining Aluminium Sill

All our External Bi Folding Door Systems utilise our self draining aluminium sill.

The 93HS Self Draining Sill is the perfect complement to our exterior folding door systems. It has been designed to integrate seamlessly with Brio Weatherfold 4s exterior folding door hardware. The aluminium tread makes it ideally suited to high traffic areas and high moisture environments. Mechanically fastened aluminium end caps feature a closed cell foam gasket to prevent water leakage. Water drains from the channel through predrilled drainage holes at the front of the sill.

Glass Options

Single, Double & Triple glazing options available to suit all applications. Featuring Low e coated glass and Argon or Krypton gas to offer the best insulating properties possible. Safety toughened or laminated also available and standard on all door systems to meet building regulations.

Mechanism Options

P

C system – Magnetic Control

All our systems feature the world’s number one integral blind system ScreenLine®. The C system, designed with the rotational, frontal, magnetic control for raising and tilting a blind integrated within a double-glazed unit, utilises the force produced by two coupled, rotational, magnetic devices. One set of magnets is inserted in the blind head rail within the cavity and the other applied to the external glass surface. This magnet principle does not compromise the unit seal and guarantees the perfect integrity of the double-glazing unit.

SV system – Cordless slider

The ScreenLine® SL20SV system is a manually operated sliding Venetian blind which features a single, cleverly designed magnetic slider to control the whole operation. Positioned on a narrow slide guide on the edge of the sealed unit, this allows the blind to be raised, lowered and tilted with ease completely cord free.

S System – Slider

The ScreenLine® SL20S is a manual system comprising a 14mm pleated blind integrated within a double-glazed unit with 20mm cavity. The blind movement is achieved by a magnetic device positioned centrally on the outer surface of the internal pane sliding across the glass surface. This external magnet interfaces with a similar internal magnet located in the movable rail and it is so designed to absorb possible glass deflections.

W Swipe System – Solar Powered

The W-Swipe system with ScreenLine® inside is a battery operated, motorised blind system. With this system, a Venetian or pleated blind encapsulated within a double-glazed unit can be raised or lowered via a control device attached to the window or by remote control. The system operates with standard, long-life rechargeable batteries and is equipped with a cleverly designed battery charger, which makes the system particularly suitable for residential and commercial environments.

MB System – Motorised Brushless

The addition of a brushless motor is a significant improvement on previous electrical systems used for raising/lowering and tilting integral blinds. Manufactured from high quality materials, coupled with the purity of aesthetic appearance and technical excellence, the system is particularly suited to prestigious projects, especially the exclusive contemporary domestic market.
