What are the safety features on Origin BifoldingDoors?
We know that a great bifolding door is not just about quality and design. It is also about peace of mind safety and reliable bifolding door security. When you consider how big some doors can be, you want peace of mind that your new bifolding door will be reliable, safe to operate and secure.
Finger Safe Gaskets.
Origin was one of the first bifolding door designers to pioneer the finger-safe gasket, and other manufacturers quickly followed suit. A bifolding door is a family door. The gasket arrangement between each door panel is designed to prevent injury, providing safe cushioning should fingers be trapped between the doors.
Strong Door Magnets
One of the great design features of Origin bifolding doors is how all the panels neatly stack together to reveal the full opening and open up your home to the outside.
Origin doors feature strong magnets on each leaf designed to hold the folding panels together when opened.
Reliable running gear that’s protected and safe.
All Origin doors feature quality rolled systems at the bottom of the doors. These are manufactured with the finest quality components, making Origin bifolding doors light and smooth in their operation.
A great feature of the Origin roller system is that it is encased within the head and track of the doors. This not only keeps the mechanisms clean but helps protect fingers and hands getting trapped in them.
How secure are Origin bifolding doors?
For many years, even the most secure doors had a weak point at the cylinder. Cylinder ‘snapping’ was a common method of forcing entry through a door. Origin bifolding doors do not use the weak cylinders found on other doors. The Origin door cylinder is designed to resist bumping, drilling or snapping – all common methods of bypassing a door cylinder and gaining entry. Origin doors are PAS 23 and PAS 24 accredited, meaning that they exceed security recommendations and testing.
Your new Origin bifold features the latest Magnum lock cylinder combined with the Origin unique eight-point locking system where most other bifolds only have five locking points. This exceptional hardware combination and our premium solid cast Yale or HAFI handles give you one of the most secure bifolding doors you can buy.
Origin door security even extends to the door hinges. These are made out of zinc, strong enough to prevent the doors being prised off the hinges. The hinges on an Origin door also resist attack.
How safe is the glass in Origin bifolding doors?
With glass making up the biggest part of a door, it’s also important for bifolding door security. You want the peace of mind that the glass is as secure as the door. As standard your doors come with toughened safety glass in either double or triple glazed units. Upgrade this to laminated glass and your door becomes even more secure.
