Aluminium bifolding doors remain the standard by which all other bifolding solutions are measured and with the launch of the Xlafold bifolding door, renowned aluminium systems company Exlabesa looks set to reinforce the standard. Derek Hodgson, General Manager of Exlabesa, says: “The Xlafold will become a classic solution because it offers everything homeowners, architects, specifiers, fabricators and installers want from a bifolding door.”
In terms of aesthetics, the Xlafold has the classic slim sightlines of an aluminium bifolding door. It is available in sculptured or square sash options, so it’s suitable for the commercial, new build and domestic markets. It is available in all RAL colour options so it sits well in any design scheme.
The Xlafold ticks all the boxes when it comes to the practicalities too. It has a typical U value of 1.5 W/m2K and features an interlocking gasket system for improved weatherfastness, which means it offers excellent thermal efficiency and will effectively keep cold and wet weather at bay. It has PAS 24 accreditation, so it offers reassuring security as well as meeting the requirements of Document Q of Building Regulations.
While these benefits will attract and reassure homeowners, architects and specifiers, the Xlafold has been designed to appeal to fabricators and installers too. It is considerably quicker to fabricate than other bifolding doors on the market. Its component parts suite with other Exlabesa systems so fabricators can reduce their stock holding and product inventory. Installers will find it straightforward to adjust the hinges, making it easier to install than competitor systems.
