Our Bifold doors combine sophisticated style and elegance with the very latest in high performance and high security multi point locking systems. Manufactured and assembled here in the UK our unique 8 point locking system conforms to demanding, police preferred ‘Secured by Design’ standards. Chamfered 20mm linear bolts offer smoother operating when engaging the lock, as well as giving maximum compression for increased weather resistance. Add deep throw 25mm security hooks – the deepest engagement available on the market today – and the lock delivers the best in both security and weatherproofing. The weakest point of a locking system is often the cylinder. Our combination of solid cast Yale security handles with high performance fixing bolts and a British Standards accredited Magnum security cylinder, proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping, offers a proven defence that is second to none. Our unique vertical locking shoot bolt solution completes the full quota of impressive security features. While a Stainless steel faceplate and a twenty year manufacturer’s warranty ensures durability and resistance against all the elements.
Nothing is more important than safety and comfort in your home. That’s why we’ve designed them into every Origin product. The Origin Folding door comes with a bespoke ‘finger safe’ gasket between each door leaf, which ensures that even when they are fully open and folded to their maximum extent, there is no gap for little fingers to get trapped in. Cleverly the lead door is prevented from slamming or being caught by gusts of wind by a strong magnetic stay which holds the door in place. The low and flush threshold radically reduce the likelihood of trips and falls, whilst the concealed free glide running gear prevents little fingers from getting trapped.
