Size related and other FAQs

  • Q:  Can I couple a window to the top of the door?
  • A:   No. A steel lintel must be installed above the door, then additional glazing can be fitted above the lintel.
  • Q:   Can I install a door in a conservatory?
  • A:   Yes, subject to confirmation from Slide and Fold Ltd. Please do not order a door until you have verified with a slide and fold representative, the size of the door, type of conservatory frames and roof system. For very large doors the door must be fitted within a structural goalpost, which is capable of supporting your roof and the load of our doors. Please seek our advice. We highly recommend that you consider our window frames and roof system, as they are designed for this purpose.

Open In or Out?

Most people base their choice on the requirement for space,either to the inside or outside. Doors are designed to be either wholly Open In or Out and there is no key benefit from choosing one over the other. It remains a matter of choice only. However there are some minor differences:

 

Open In:
  • Doors require room space when open.
  • tecTURA aluminium open in doors, when fitted with a standard rebated threshold , can be buried into the sub floor, giving just an 18.5mm up stand. When fitted with a low threshold, there is no up stand, providing level access.


Open Out:
  • No internal room space required.
  • tecTURA aluminium open out doors, when fitted with a standard rebated threshold , can be wholly buried in the floor, leaving no visible up stand. When fitted with an aluminium low threshold, there is no up stand, providing level access.
  • Open Out doors are 75% of all doors supplied.

Cills:

  • The industry standard is 150mm. A stub cill may be required if you have a small reveal or are sitting your door forward in the reveal and want to minimize the projection of the cill. You may choose an 190mm cill if the door is sitting back in the reveal and you need to bridge the brickwork at the base of the door.

Handle Both Sides

  • Handles both sides is the only option that allows outside access.
  • On Scheme 110LM or 110RM a claw lock recommended by the police and automatically conforming to the Association of British Insurers (ABI) standard is fitted. It hasSecured By Design for Peace of  Mind 24mm throw tensile steel security hooks. With opposing High Security steel hooks which barb behind keeps by 8mm to help prevent the forcing apart of sash and frame.

  • Standard lever handles are fitted to the door
  • Handles are the same for design for both open out and in doors
  • Claw Lock for smarts visofold 1000 folding door

Internal Handle Only

  • Internal handle only is the popular choice for doors not designed for main access.
  • It is possible to have a standard lever handle fitted to the inside only. WARNING: As this door has a full claw and latch system, if the door  is pushed closed from the outside, you will be locked out. This must be considered when used on the ground floor. This option is perfect for "Juliet balcony's", where an outside handle or access is never required. Do not choose this option if it is a main acces door.
  • Handles are the same for design for both open out and in doors

Is your door for an extension ? :

  • All our doors are made to trickle vent for smarts duration and express folding doorssuch a high specification, they automatically conform to the current building (PART L) regulations. The only other consideration is if trickle ventilation is required.
  • All habitable rooms require 5000mm sq. of equivalent air.
  • If you have no other means of venting your room ( i.e. a brick vent, mechanical ventilation or another door or window with a trickle vent fitted) then a trickle vent will need to be fitted to your bi-fold door.
  • If a trickle vent is required it will be fitted to the top of the first and last door sash.

Is your door a replacement ? :

  • If you are replacing an existing door and not changing the structural width of your opening then building regulations do not apply.
  • If the door you are replacing has trickle ventilation already fitted, then it is a requirement that a trickle vent is fitted to the bi-fold door.
  • You may choose to have a vent fitted regardless of if being a requirement, to aid background ventilation.

Self Cleaning Glass:

  • Self-cleaning glass uses a microscopic coating with a unique dual-action. The first stage is "photo-catalytic" - the coating reacts with daylight to break down organic dirt.
  • The second stage is "hydrophilic" - instead of forming droplets, rainwater hits the glass and spreads evenly, running off in a "sheet" and taking the loosened dirt with it, also drying quickly without leaving streaks.
  • Self clean glass is not available on TECT 3.
  • When combined with TECT 4 glass, the solar reflectance increases from 49% to 69%. Perfect for elevations that suffer from extreme heat gain.
