Accordian Bifold Doors Brisbane
Aluminium Bifold Doors Brisbane
Aluminium bifold doors help create more flexibility in shop front doors and shutters. Designed around the concept of an accordion folding open and closed, these widely used doors are highly versatile and capable of fitting any openings up to 4.2 metres high and any width. They are wonderfully appealing as well as functional, and they are well-known for their smooth, reliable operation and easy access. We supply aluminium bifold doors Brisbane all around South East Queensland, and this type of door as supplied by Prestige Doors is the favourite product of choice for:
- Shopping Centres
- Retail Stores
- Sporting Complexes
- Clubs & Bars
Bifolding doors are very flexible, and as you can see from the list above they can be used for many different purposes and are readily adaptable to change. They are not just limited to use on the outside of a shop or retail outlet; they can also be used inside to help separate or close off a room. This is extremely useful in many cases and allows you to create organised sections or to make a very large, open space feel more private and intimate.
If privacy is something you are after, then we have a number of options to make sure your aluminum bifold doors in Brisbane are suited to your purpose. While clear glass on the doors or shutters may not be the best solution, translucent or frosted glass is a great way to create a private environment while still having all the aesthetic and functional qualities of traditional bifolding doors.
Our aluminium bifold doors Brisbane all come standard with 3mm transparent polycarbonate infill panels, allowing clear visibility through the door for displaying your products or venue even while the door is closed.
Naturally one size does not fit all, and we know our standard design won’t work for everyone. If clear infill panels are unsuitable for your needs then there are a number of alternatives our expert team can provide for you, such as:
- 3mm Toughened glass infill
- Solid Aluminium infill
- Perforated steel / Aluminium sheeting (different styles of perforations are available giving various amounts of air flow through the curtain)
Contact us for more information and to discuss the best product for your needs.
Although generally it will vary depending on height width and infill, the average door weights are:
- 265 Panel = 6 kg/m with Polycarbonate infill
- 125 Panel = 12 kg/m with Polycarbonate infill
Operating your Bifolding Door
The doors are supported by a 35mm (w) x 43mm (h) extruded aluminium overhead track. Each alternate panel is fitted with a heavy duty bearing which provides smooth and easy operation.
The leading frame is constructed from a 2 piece specially designed 54mm x 32mm aluminium extrusion and cover plate which houses the locking system. The superior lock design has a removable cylinder which can be replaced to suit your keying requirements, and the locking system is covered by a custom made fascia providing extra safety and security to the lock. Locking stiles are generally placed approximately every 2 metres, depending on the opening width.
The panel frame and guides are provided in a natural anodized finish, but can be powder coated as an option in a range of available colours. Prices are available on request. Polycarbonate infills are also available in a variety of different finishes, such as opaque.
Powder coating helps give your aluminium bifold doors Brisbane a fantastic, durable finish. It is a method that is applied electrostatically as a dry powder, which makes it very different from a traditional liquid paint job as it does not require a solvent to keep the different parts of the liquid in suspension form. It is much more resilient than the traditional painting methods and creates a tough, hard finish, which makes it a preferred and longer lasting technique for commercial and industrial use. Powder coating is typically used for covering metals, which is why we recommend it so highly, as our bifold doors are aluminium.

Advantages of Bifold Doors
With so many types of doors and shutters available on the market, it can be hard to make a decision about which one will best suit your needs. Our aluminium bifold doors Brisbane can offer you a range of benefits:
The innovative fold-and-stack design of bifold doors takes up very little space both when they’re open and when they’re closed, which makes them perfect for situations where you have a limited amount of space to work with. They can also fold away as much or as little as you’d like, giving you complete control over how much entry space you want to make available. So you can easily widen the entry way to allow for wheelchair access, or reduce it to prevent customers from walking into wet floors or spills.
All our bifold doors are fitted with multiple heavy duty locking systems that are spread over the sliding track, which gives them a very high level of security compared to most other doors which usually only have a single lock. They are also designed with high quality panels and hinges for maximum protection.
The clever design of the free-glide roller system allows for our bifold doors to continuously operate smoothly and perform well, because of the lack of friction with the roller bearings. So even with regular and frequent use, they will always run smoothly and be easy to open and close.
Bifold doors have a sleek, slim profile that makes them easy to fit into any style of building. The glass allows for light to filter into your store even when the doors are closed, making the inside look brighter and more appealing, and you can choose from a range of colour and panel options that can help your doors stand out and attract more customers.
Their naturally durable and resistant nature makes bifold doors long lasting, even with little to no maintenance. They are very easy to keep clean, and a basic maintenance routine will ensure they always perform to the highest standard. You can find some simple maintenance tips below.
Keep your bifold doors always looking beautiful and performing well, with a few basic care and maintenance procedures. Cleaning is simple, and the maintenance required is generally just a quick check over all the working parts to make sure that they are all running smoothly.
- Clean your doors on a regular to semi-regular basis, by wiping them down with water and a cleaning agent. You can use a vacuum cleaner to remove the dust in the crevices and around the hinges.
- Inspect all doorknobs, hinges and other hardware for any loose or missing screws. Loose hinges are a common cause of doors getting stuck as they open or close, and screws can be easily replaced or tightened to fix the problem.
- Check the track at the top and bottom that guides the doors open and closed, for any obstructions that need to be removed or dents that need to be smoothed out.
- Check the rollers that move the doors in the tracks for any indents or obstructions. If the rollers aren’t moving smoothly, silicon spray or wax will correct this.
