The Epwin stand at the FIT Show 2017 revealed that the company will introduce a new aluminium bifold.

Sharn Samra, Marketing Director at Epwin Window Systems said: “We felt the FIT Show was the perfect vehicle to unveil it to the market. Judging by the response we have received so far, we made the right decision because anticipation is already building.”

Here is what we know about the Epwin aluminium bifold. Developed exclusively by Epwin Window Systems, it will accept aluminium or PVC-U beads, offering something genuinely new for the market.

It has been developed to offer maximum design flexibility. The external appearance will have a bevelled frame and sash upstand and an optional square sash upstand. Internally, the PVC-U bead will be sculptured or bevelled and the aluminium version will be square.

It will be available in up to seven sashes of between 750mm and 900mm, with a maximum height of 2100mm and a maximum weight of 120kg. Sashes can open inwards or outwards to create the look desired by the homeowner.

The thermal break is polyamide based, glass-fibre reinforced and designed for high strength, rigidity and thermal separation so the door provides the thermal efficiency and security that today’s homeowners are looking for.

The door’s hardware offers a level of quality this aspirational door style needs. Security is taken care of thanks to features such as multipoint locking for the main door, shootbolts for the secondary doors and folding sashes and a centrally fixed hinge and roller system that gives additional rigidity as well as PAS 24 compliance.

The zinc handles are die-cast and corrosion resistant to Grade 4 BS EN 1670:2007 (a minimum of 240 hours salt spray resistance) while stainless steel tracks and rollers ensure ease of use year after year.

Epwin Window Systems will be revealing more information about its new aluminium bifold door in due course. In the meantime, if the early signs are anything to go by, the company has just enhanced its reputation for being forward-thinking and innovative in delivering what the market is looking for.
