Modern look with no constraints
Fold and Slide doors (harmonica/accordion) usually consist of two sections: a folding leaf (or a tilt & turn leaf) and two or more leaves which, when shifted sideways, fold together as if these were concertinaed.
This door represents an ideal solution that allows greater freedom of openness, without the obstacle of a sleeper or fixed panels. Thus, up to 5 components can be built on fixed rails or embedded in the floor.
The great mobility of this harmonic door model allows complete opening. It is fitted with a "accordion" mechanism made of sheets that allow the surface to be opened. This opening is not obstructed by fixed parts or sleepers. There are various possibilities of choosing these folding sheets.
The quality and design of the hardware guarantees flexibility and durability.
Types of Folding doors
Low-E glass refers to glass with a low-emissivity coating applied on one surface. It is designed to reflect long-wave infrared (heat) back into a building to improve the u-value and energy efficiency of the glazing. Low-E glass is relatively neutral in appearance, so is widely used in both commercial and residential buildings.
Safety glass (laminated/tempered)
It is obtained by joining two or more float glass sheets (clear, reflective or colored) with one or more layers of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) of 0.83 mm thick. If the glass breaks, the pieces remain stuck to the foil, reducing the risk of cutting.
Glass 4 Seasons
Glass 4 Seasons with solar control, retains the low-e glass features, but has a higher degree of protection against sunlight from the outside to the inside. It is the right choice when it comes to removing the greenhouse effect from homes due to the natural energy input from the sun and additionally offers additional noise protection. This can reduce the cost of air conditioning in the summer.
It is a glass made of clear or colored glass by passing it to the outlet of the furnace between two profiled rollers. By incorporating a wire mesh in this stage, an ornamental reinforced glass is obtained . To enhance aesthetic effects, ornamental glazing can be sandblast.
The main feature of the reflective glass is its ability to reflect a large part of solar energy, thus preventing its excessive penetration into buildings. This feature has the consequence of improving the thermal comfort during the summer and reducing the energy expenditure needed for the air conditioning.
