Solutions - Sliding Doors

Whatever the requirement, Sunflex bespoke range of folding doors can provide the solution. Capable of opening widths of up to 25 metres, with 12 panels in each direction, the traditional French door is made to fell insignificant. The patio door, will at most open up to two thirds of the overall width, whereas the folding door will provide a clear opening of up to nearly 95% of the overall width.

All systems can open either to the inside or more popularly to the outside, with panels that can open to the left or right, with any number of panels opening to each side. An odd number panel configuration will provide you with a single access or pass door for daily use or with an even number of panels an opening first pair. With fixed or moveable 90 or 135 angles corner posts, it is possible to completely open up corners, bays, even segmented radius curves, the possibilities are endless.


Sunflex SF55 - Aluminium Sliding Doors
The SF55 is a revolutionary new development; this system is designed to shape the future of the folding door market. Not only does it provide a small profile width of only 55mm, in addition to narrower sightlines maximising glass area, it boasts of an unrivalled 24mm patented shaped polyamide thermal break, making it the most thermally efficient current building regulations but any other likely stringent changes in the future.

The profile is constructed from a strong aluminium extrusion, which has been thermally broken by a 24mm polyamide insulation bar, guaranteeing it optimum resistance to combat heat loss and condensation. The minimal framework is offered as a (WE) square edge profile.

All framework is assembled with patented moulded corner blocks and the panels are machine mitred at the corners rather than the cheaper but jointed alternatives. Each panel is connected to the next panel/outer frame by a minimum of 3 slim line hinges, ensuring an even, continuous seal around the perimeter of each door panel.


Sunflex SF70 - Aluminium Sliding Doors
The SF70 has clearly established itself as the long-tem market leader for innovation and design. It is widely recognised as setting the benchmark in so far as the benefits provided and its proven long-term security reliability and durability. The SF70ís versatility in design with both WS (softline/rounded) and WE (square) profile option, its partial venting position, combined with its thermal abilities, sets it on a pedestal, impossible to beat.

The robust aluminium extrusion has been separated by a 22mm polyamide thermal break, one of the largest thermally broken systems on the market. This gives the SF70 a distinct advantage over the competition by ensuring that it is most energy-efficient, whilst maintaining a sleek look and narrow sightlines.

We are exclusively able to offer complete versatility in meeting your clients design requirements, matching in with any conventional aluminium or UPVC door and window systems with a choice of profiles from the WS (softline/rounded) edge to the WE (square) edge.

All framework is assembled with patented moulded corner blocks and the panels are machine mitred at the corners rather than the cheaper butt jointed alternatives. Each panel is connected to the next panel/outer frame by a minimum of 3 hinges, ensuring an even, continuous seal around the perimeter or each door panel.


Sunflex SF65 / SF68 - Timber Sliding Doors
The Sunflex SF65/SF68 Timber folding system has the slimmest sightlines in Europe. All timber is sourced from sustainable forests: the standard timbres are Meranti (hardwood) and Nordic pine (knot free softwood), whiles other timbers such as American White Oak or European Oak are available by special order. The natural beauty of the wood is enhanced by our finishing techniques, resulting in the product being comparable to that of high quality furniture, no other system looks like it or can perform like it.

The Sunflex SF65/SF68 is strengthened and stabilised by a process of lamination. This is where the timbre has been separated into three solid timber sections, these are bonded back together with opposing grains, achieving greater durability and less susceptible to movement. The resulting strength of this process combined with the fibrous make up of timber ensures minimal framework and a lifetime of continued usage and reliability, in addition to the timbers superior thermal qualities.
