Folding Door Construction:
Our internal folding doors are all supplied with the glass factory-installed in the doors.The glass used in all of our internal and external models is toughened safety glass, in order to comply with British standards.
And where we state that the folding doors are supplied in ‘kit form’, we can assure you that the glass or panels are always fitted and that they are hinged together to form a bi-fold pair.
Thrufold Folding Door Fittings and Frame Components Note:
All Thrufold door products are cut to size upon receipt of order and cannot be cancelled afterwards, they are classed as a bespoke item created and manufactured by DirectDoors.com to suit your exact folding door dimensions.
Please be aware that each image or PDF's for our internal folding doors shows a position of a flush pull, hinges, slip bolt etc but the position of each item is very dependent on how you and your carpenter decide the doors should open.
There will be occasions when you may decide that the flush pull is better fitted in the centre of the middle door for a 3 door set or indeed a latch handle is fitted on the main opening door, you may also decide that you do not want to fit the slip bolt - each and every decision is yours to make - just decide before fitting any of the above items.
The small door stops (25x12mm) for some of the configurations will have to be "offset" so one leg allows the main door to close against it in a traditional manner whereas the same door stop will be fitted on the opposite side at the other frame leg.
Configuration choices are:
- 2+0, two doors opening left or right.
- 2+1, two doors on one side and one opposite.
- 3+0, three doors opening left or right.
- 2+2, two doors opening to each side.
- 3+1, three doors on one side and one on the opposite.
- 3+2, three doors opening to one side and the other two opening to the opposite side.
- 3+3, three doors opening to each side.
Our Thrufold frames use three main individual door widths which are 686mm, 762mm and 838mm, when you combine these sizes with all the configurations you have 21 folding door widths from 1445mm all the way through to 5115mm wide, massive choice but easy to search and choose.
All Thrufold MDF frame items are supplied in kit form with full track and fittings but without screws or nail fixings, they are not assembled, glass is pre-installed in the doors where there are glass apertures.
And with a selection of materials, finishes, and compatible fittings - including handles, hinges, and locks - there really is something to suit all tastes.
Please do not arrange any tradesman until the goods have arrived, been checked over for damages and are suitable for installation as you intended, courier delays due to illness, traffic issues or product damages can also impact on your arrangements. Wood products will have a naturally occurring grain, this will vary regardless of veneer type, this is the beauty of wood. We cannot be held liable for any consequential costs should you arrange an early installation or whether the courier is delayed and lastly if the grain is wavy / straight and not to your liking.
