Finger Safe Bi Fold Door Gaskets

Finger safe gaskets to protect your family.

It makes absolute sense that with a door having more panels than a french door or sliding door, finger protection should be built-in.

Look closely at our superbly crafted bifold door and the joints between each folding panel feature an anti-finger trap design.

If you have little children or even for adults you’ll appreciate the importance of a safety feature which stops fingers getting trapped.

We make this possible thanks to clever engineering and thoughtful design. Our doors feature a customer designed interlocking joint gasket. Specially made from a durable yet flexible thermoplastic elastomer it avoids any gaps that may cause a finger trap situation.

Even as you start to close the doors you’ll see no sharp edges and peace of mind that fingers can’t get trapped between the doors.

Bifolding doors to be enjoyed not maintained.

Thanks to the finest materials and sophisticated hardware, our exceptional bifolding doors are designed for enjoyment with minimal maintenance.

A simple clean of your durable powder coated frames with a mild soapy solution is all that’s required to keep them looking like new.

A twice yearly application of silicone spray is all you need to do to keep the gaskets supple. For the locks and hinges simple lubrication a couple of times a year will keep your doors folding and locking as they should.

Our unique free glide running system is what enables your doors to open an close with a minimum of effort. Despite their advanced designed this is totally maintenance free. Only routine cleaning of the track is all that’s required when you frequently open and close your doors.

Creating the seamless link between the inside and out.

One of the benefits of having a bifolding door is how they can connect the inside to the outside of your home. To make this happen a well designed threshold is important. The threshold on an Origin bifolding door has been carefully through out to cover most requirements.

Our threshold is already one of the lowest on the market at only 66mm high. But you can sink the base track of the frame into the floor to create an ultra low threshold with minimum ‘step over’.

Every home is different. So deepening upon the inner and outer floor levels our threshold can give you a minimal height of just 12mm.

How can large folding doors open so smoothly?

A bifolding door can only be reliable if it is fitted with the very best hardware. Compare any folding door to a hinged door and you’ll instantly see how much more complex hinges and other hardware are.

Our unique free glide roller carriage is specially designed only for our doors. It features a long wheelbase solid aluminium carriage with four wheels that run inside a low threshold base track.

Each wheel is a little masterpiece in its own right. Made from the highest quality Type 6–6 nylon it resists heat, friction and degradation. Only the finest quality steel, fixings and other components go into making our doors that will work smoothly and effortlessly for years. This is why they’re the only ones with a 20 year guarantee.
