Once we are happy that everything is in alignment with our bi-folding door frame, we start to drill into the fixing holes and tighten all the fittings to ensure there is no movement in the frame. Care must be taken at this stage to not distort the outer frame due to too much applied pressure.

Once the frame is correctly inserted and tightened up, our team of specialists will then move on to installing the double glazed units. Firstly, a weather tight seal must be applied using top quality silicone such as Adshed Radcliffe sealants which are specifically designed for aluminium framing.

Remove all the outer protective tape and clean to make sure everything has a neat and straight edge when the silicone dries and all the tape is removed.

Finally, we make sure to check all the components on the door. This includes the anti-drill, pick and bump and multiple locking systems so that when we hand over the keys everything is in working order.
