Smarts Visofold 1000 Product Information
With Visofold 1000 Bifold Doors you can enjoy:
- Slimline profiles with reduced sightlines
- Square or rounded end options
- Variable locking mechanisms
The Smarts Visofold 1000 has a number of domestic applications. They can be used as an alternative to sliding doors or to open up an entire wall of your kitchen or conservatory. The folding door system is designed to make the most of your beautiful views, and to make the transition from inside to outside seamless.
For businesses, commercial applications include bars, cafés and restaurants where the Visofold 1000 creates a glazed screen that is the perfect solution, whatever the weather. The bifold doors allow in the maximum amount of light while keeping the heat in when it’s cool outside. And for those warm, sunny days, the doors glide open easily to open up an entire wall. The flexible design means that you can choose to fold the sashes internally or externally and you can also decide where to place the opening. Placing the opening at the side means that all the sashes fold one way, at one end, creating a single entrance door for easy access. Alternatively, the entrance can be in the middle, with sashes folding to either side to give the option of a double door.
The Visofold 1000 doors all come standard with a polyamide thermal break which works to enhance the performance of the doors and improves their U-value. Weather resistance is further improved with EPDM high quality gaskets and weather brushes. The bifold doors comply with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010 and security is prioritised with our multi-point lock mechanisms. These locks are installed on the main opening sashes, and each of the floating mullions has a shoot-bolt.
Thresholds that could be a trip hazard are a thing of the past as all Visofold 1000 doors have the option of low thresholds or rebated thresholds. Low thresholds offer unimpeded access as a primary benefit, while rebated thresholds provide improved weather resistance.
Visofold 1000 systems can be ordered on a supply-only or supply-and-fit basis.

These are the questions we get asked most frequently about our Visofold 1000 systems.
What are the different glass options?
Standard Double Glazing – You can choose from a wide range of glass options. The standard double-glazed units include toughened safety glass sealed units with Low-E values. They are filled with 90% argon gas and have a warm edge spacer-bar. The U-value of these units is 1.2 W/M²K.
Unglazed – If you would prefer, doors can be supplied unglazed, allowing you to source your glass from a different supplier. Please note that if you choose this option, you will need to comply with building regulations.
Staycool Solar Glazing – Staycool solar glazing offers protection from the sun’s direct heat and reflects glare, and in the winter offers thermal insulation with U-values as low as 1.1 so that you home stays warm. This industry-leading glass technology reflects 57% of direct solar heat and provides a reduction in glare of 35%. These benefits are achieved without using coloured glass, and in addition to offering you increased comfort, your flooring and furnishing will be better protected against fading and sun damage.
Other Options – For better U-values we offer other optional glazing specifications including triple glazing and Krypton glass. Please get in touch if you would like to know more about these options.
All our glazing options exceed the current regulation specifications that stipulate a maximum U-value of 1.8 with our double glazing achieving a U-value of 1.5, and Staycool around 1.1.
Are the doors fully secure?
What colours are available?
The aluminium bifold doors have a powder-coated paint finish. The most popular colours are RAL 7016 (Anthracite Grey), RAL 9010 (White) and RAL 9005 (Black). Because these colours are painted in such large quantities, they are the most cost-effective; but there are over 200 finishes to choose from including wood and metallic.
Why do you only offer aluminium?
Aluminium frames provide a low maintenance solution that incorporate a thermal break. This ensures that our bifold doors are effectively insulated against heat loss, helping to raise a home’s internal temperature and reduce the risk of condensation.
