Liniar have released their new range of aluminium bi-folding doors, Alumina by Liniar, at the 2016 FIT Show.
The first systems company to launch a bespoke PVCu bi-folding door system to the market in 2011, Liniar broke new ground with its ModLok™ bi-fold in 2014. The thermally efficient PVCu bi-fold combines standard PVCu fabrication techniques with an industry first patented exo-skeleton, giving the bi-fold doors the technology and strength for bigger and wider door apertures.
Alumina follows the same principles as the Liniar ModLok™ bi-fold system, and has obtained PAS 24 accreditation and has been awarded Secured by Design status.
Liniar design team have created the first thermally efficient aluminium bi-fold to match a PVCu window system. Alumina by Liniar breaks new ground with its strength, security, low U-values, sculptured lines and an optional foiled exterior.
Able to span 1.2 metres wide per sash and 2.5 metres high, Alumina by Liniar can be manufactured using standard aluminium machinery by fabricators who are equipped for it. For customers who aren’t in a position to manufacture it themselves, or would prefer to buy it prefabricated, Liniar has set up its own supply chain – simply place an order direct with Liniar and our team will make the doors to your exact specifications.
Like other aluminium bi-folds, Alumina by Liniar can be offered in just about any powder-coated colour imaginable. Consumers can choose a wood grain or flat foiled finish for their doors –matching their Liniar PVCu windows for a more energy efficient home.
Consumers will be able to choose Alumina doors that match the exact colour of Liniar sculptured PVCu windows, they will also be the same shape – providing a seamless finish.
Alumina has also been designed from scratch with a combined lock and thermal insert. This lock unites the specification of security with a high strength engineering polymer lock body – so the lock itself acts as a thermal break, boosting the door’s thermal performance compared to a traditional aluminium door.
With 28mm double glazed and 36mm or 40mm triple glazed options available, Alumina offers U-values as low as 1.2W/m²k, thanks to the thermal lock and 40mm triple glazed unit.
