Design every detail of your trade bifold door for the perfect fit
Bifold doors are top of the shopping list for builders and installers because of the lifestyle benefits they bring. We’ve now added a new online door designer so it’s even easier to choose the best bifold door design in Derby with Frame Fast.
Bifold doors are great. They open up any space in the home, making rooms feel bigger and connecting the inside to the outside. Whether it’s a kitchen, dining room or conservatory, bifold doors are a superb addition to any home. They look stylish and have a contemporary feel. We really like the concertina open and close effect and it’s always interesting to see the different designs that come through the factory.
Getting the design of a bifold door right helps to make sure installers get the perfect fit. From speaking to customers on the trade counter, we know how important easy ordering and fast delivery is to the trade. It helps to fit more work into their busy schedules.
That’s why at Frame Fast we have introduced our new online bifold door designer. It gives window and door fitters complete control over bifold door design in Derby. Customers just have to click through the options available to order their perfect Frame Fast bifold door.
Here’s a step by step guide to how the Frame Fast bifold door designer works.
Measurements, configuration and opening style
Once an installer has been out to survey their project, create the hole for the bifold door and take its measurements, they are ready to use our online bifold door designer.
After signing in to the dedicated trade area, the first step is to fill in the bifold door height and width measurements taken on site. There’s the option to put a quote reference in too, which is useful if multiple designs are being created at one time.
Now that the measurements have been entered, our bifold door designer automatically provides the configurations available to suit the measurements provided. For example, if the measurements 4000 x 2100 are entered, 11 door configuration options are given. At Frame Fast we can do openings up to 6 panes wide and 2.5 metres high.
It then provides the choice of inward or outward opening style. This depends on the project requirements and how much space surrounds the door, inside and out.
A Splash Of Colour
Then it’s all about choosing the external and internal frame colours. At Frame Fast we offer single colour and dual colour options, to make sure installers have lots of design choice. The external frame can be finished in any RAL colour, in standard white and anthracite grey, or for an extra bit of style, we have a sensations range.
The sensations colour range is made up of really vivid shades. There’s Basque Red, Amazon Green, Steel Blue, Chestnut Brown and many more that can really make a bifold door stand out.
Hardware and Glass
The range of design choice continues on glass and hardware too. There are 4 glazing options to choose from with U values as little as 0.9 W/m2.K if installers opt for triple glazing. Document Q laminated glass and low e double glazed are also available.
We also provide choice on door handle colour and thresholds. There’s white, black and chrome to pick from on door handles and we do a low threshold option.
For added security, we offer an upgrade to the Ultion 3-star cylinder lock. The anti-drilling, picking, bumping and snapping lock achieves Secured by Design accreditation and gives real peace of mind to homeowners.
Once all the options are selected, the installer can view their quote and send it through to the team at Frame Fast.
