ALUPROF SA, a leading European supplier of aluminium systems, has introduced the new MB-86 FOLD LINE HD bifold door system with a thermal break to its range. The versatility of the solution is ensured by its inward- and outward-opening technologies and the wide range of customisation options available to business and private clients alike.

Bifold doors leading outside offer their users enormous freedom, allowing them to make the most of good weather and more or less completely eliminating the barrier between a building’s interior and its surroundings. They can be used to create an excellent, expansive way out onto a patio or to link a restaurant or café with the outdoor spaces it uses seasonally.

The ALUPROF MB-86 FOLD LINE HD is a solution which provides plenty of comfort in its daily use. At the same time, it not only features high technical parameters, but also makes it possible to create large-scale structures. The bifold doors can open outwards or inwards and the panels can be configured as desired. This state-of-the-art product is designed to meet the exhaustive demands of users, a fact which is particularly appreciated by architects, since it gives them enormous freedom while they are designing.

Every aspect of its performance reflects ALUPROF’s continuing innovative improvements, taking it well ahead of its predecessor. The MB-86 FOLD LINE HD makes it possible to build structures consisting of up to eight door panels with a maximum height of 3.0 metres and a width ranging from 0.7 to 1.2 metres. It can be used to create symmetrical, asymmetrical and corner (panoramic) structures. New hardware has been introduced, facilitating a functioning panel weighing up to 120 kg.

ALUPROF Product Manager Michał Marcinowski provides some more details:

Our new system offers the possibility of using glazing up to 61.5 mm thick, meaning that every kind of double glazing on the market can be used, including acoustic and burglar-resistant glass. MB-86 FOLD LINE HD folding doors can be made with all sorts of different threshold solutions. One is a version with a concealed threshold, which is particularly recommended for people who are older or disabled.
