Doors that Do What Bifolds Don’t!
Some customers say that their New Wave Doors Slide and swing, slide and stack, or even slide and pivot. We just say they are the…DOORS THAT DO WHAT BI-FOLDS DON’T!
WHAT DO THESE DOORS DO THAT BI-FOLDS DON’T?
Versatility – A Door for All Seasons
Bi-folding doors generally need to be fully open or fully closed. Inherently, this restricts the usability of a bi-folding door. Patented New Wave Technology allows you to open as much or as little of the door as you want with its versatile opening combinations. Therefore, a New Wave Door is a door that you can use 52 weeks of the year, not just 2 weeks of the year.
The unique and innovative New Wave door system incorporates the use of a main traffic door. Conveniently, this can be used as a conventional back door, whereas many bi-folding doors need to be fully open or fully closed and do not have this option.
Aluminium New Wave Doors use a polyamide thermal break system to prevent a cold bridge from outside to inside. This reduces heat loss and condensation. This is the industry platinum standard. Some door systems, especially cheap ones, use a uPVC core with aluminium cladding. As these materials expand at different rates, they do not have the structural integrity or the thermal efficiency of a polyamide thermally broken aluminium door. All New Wave Doors are fitted with New Wave Oxygene double glazed units as standard, when supplied glazed and Installed by us. These high performance double glazed Argon filled glass units meet the most stringent specifications within the industry.
Bi-folding doors can compromise security by their very design. The panels need to fold, so they are unable to fully interlock making them vulnerable to attack.
New Wave Door panels fully interlock from top to bottom when they closed and are fully rebated inside and outside. They literally form a ‘wall’ of defence against intruders (and the weather)!
We are not aware of any New Wave Door being breached by intruders since its launch in 2012. We are confident that no other Door System can claim this.
A Wall against the Weather
Bi-folding Doors are prone to draughts as the panels cannot interlock. New Wave Doors keep out the weather with clever patented design: New Wave Door panels completely interlock from top to bottom and are fully rebated inside and out. Combined with the high performance polyamide thermal break design, New Wave Doors keep the heat in and the weather out.
The unique and innovative operating system of the New Wave Door complete space efficiency in comparison to a bi-folding door. New Wave Doors never encroach into the living space or the patio space during the opening and closing cycle.
The New Wave Doors’ stunning looks with a minimalist, elegant design and clean, unbroken sightlines are a result of the innovative door system not requiring any visible hinges or handles on the sliding panels and the clever slim-line section design giving a razor-sharp look without compromising strength or integrity.
Reliability – Its Simple Really
The simple but clever design of the patented New Wave Door operating system delivers proven reliability through simplicity. Unlike a Bi-folding Door, the New Wave Door panels are not connected with complex gearing and hinges. Therefore, they operate completely independently and are free from the stress and excess weight displacement present in all bi-folding doors. The weight of the New Wave Door panels is supported on the bottom track just like a traditional patio door. Whereas, the very design of bi-folding doors relies heavily on the top track to support the folding panels.
The New Wave Slide & Swing Patio Door System
First released in the UK in 2012 as a result of the desire of New Wave Doors to find a better wide span door solution. The technically flawed and overpriced Bi-folding door or Bifold Door was already disappointing consumers with its lack of flexibility and poor reliability. This is also true of the expensive Lift and Slide Patio Door and whereas conventional Patio Doors are generally quite reliable they have many operational restrictions.
What was needed was a reliable affordable solution that could combine the reliability of a Patio Door with a bi-folding door’s ability to fully open. And then add a host of other benefits.
The solution is the New Wave Door. Best of both and so much more: It’s a No Brainer!
