Benefits of Aluminium

Thermally broken aluminium is the best material available for the manufacture of the specialist product range as it is strong, lightweight, versatile, easy to maintain, aesthetically pleasing and will not contract or expand. Aluminium allows for slender profiles, maximising the glazed area of the window or door and it can be powder coated in any one of over 200 RAL colours, as well as metallic and woodgrain finishes. All the windows and doors are fitted with Planitherm 1.3 soft coat low E glass with argon gas as standard.

Bi Folding Doors

Bi folding doors are becoming an increasingly popular choice as an alternative to sliding or patio doors in homes, businesses, schools, offices and restaurants. Bi folding doors create a 90% clear opening enabling the exterior space to be turned into a usable room, transforming two spaces into one and dramatically increasing the amount of light, making the room feel bigger. The doors are manufactured to an exceptionally high standard to fit any space. Options available include:

  • XP-1 Aluminium Bi Folding Doors: The XP-1 range differs to other doors as each individual panel is hinged to a central floating mullion rather than to each other. This enables the doors to be stable and robust, ideal for commercial applications with spans of 8m upwards. XP-1 incorporates a polyamide thermal break for superior insulation and offers incredible weather ratings with a rebated bottom track. A 33mm flush threshold is available for a seamless and minimalistic transition from the interior to exterior. Bespoke doors are often available within seven days and installed in just a few weeks.
  • XP View Aluminium Bi Folding Doors: A superior quality bi folding door with a very slim sightline of just 120mm which is available in widths of 1200mm for individual doors and 3000mm for panels. The door leaves fold and stack to the left or right, inwards or outwards and glide almost silently on roller carriers. The thermal characteristics of the system surpass all current and future Building Regulations and are extremely secure. Options include low-level thresholds, flat handles on intermediate panels and stainless steel hardware on traffic doors.
  • XP-10 Aluminium Bi Folding Doors: A mid-range, cost effective bi folding door suited to residential use for openings of up to 6.5m wide. The XP-10 boasts a sightline of just 132mm and a 20mm low threshold option and operates on four stainless steel bogey wheel assemblies which run on a dual stainless steel track.
  • SL 66 Timber Bi Folding Doors: Soft or hardwood frames with a factory finish ranging from classical to contemporary colour shades. The system features a slim frame and panel profiles of just 169mm, with wider profiles available if required. The panels are made using triple laminated timber to prevent warping and twisting and double wraparound seals to protect from wind and rain.
  • SL 67 Composite Bi Folding Doors: A combination of interior pine wood profiles with vented aluminium cladding on the outside that offers a distinctive character. The system features maintenance free stainless steel gearing that will perform effortlessly for many years to come.

Sliding Doors

Express Bi Folding Doors has developed a range of industry leading sliding door systems that create a stunning sliding glass wall. This attractive, yet slender system is secure and strong enough to house a double glazed unit weighing in excess of 200kg. The sliding doors can offer widths in excess of 2400mm and creates a clear opening of up to 75% on a triple track system. The XP Glide is available in any number of panels, with a traditional track system offering two or four panels and a triple track option offering between three and six panels. The XP GlideS system has been developed to house commercial sized integral Uniblinds and both systems coupled with high specification glazing solutions which surpass all architect specifications, Building Regulations and client expectations.

Aluminium Windows

Express Bi Folding Doors has recently launched an exciting new aluminium windows range which are designed and manufactured to the same exacting standards as the bi fold doors. The windows are available in over 200 RAL colours including woodgrain and metallic finishes and are suited to both domestic and commercial applications. Key features include:

  • Elegant slim sightlines
  • Strong and durable frames
  • Dual colour options available
  • Designed to reduce heat loss using thermally broken aluminium frames with a polyamide bridge
  • Reduced bills due to thermal efficiency
  • Traditional and contemporary styles available
  • Manufacture, delivery and installation available within 2-3 weeks.

Composite Windows

A stunning range of composite windows manufactured from a fusion of two materials, timber and aluminium. The external aluminium face is strong, slim and available in many colour options, whilst the internal timber creates a luxurious, warm and natural look. Key features include:

  • Standard finishes of the timber (Ash) include a natural finish which is simply sealed or a light Oak stain. Other options include timber staining, priming of the wood and over 25 RAL colour options for the exterior finish
  • The elegant profiles maximise natural light
  • A full range of hardware including locks, handles, hinges, fixings and security options are available
  • The thermal break limits cold air transferring into the timber and eliminates condensation.

Roofing Systems and Aluminium Structures

The Express roofing systems are manufactured from aluminium and feature high quality castings and extrusions which have been powder coated to provide additional weathering and greater aesthetic appeal across varying applications and climatic conditions. As aluminium is lightweight, strong and versatile, it has enabled Express to create a stunning array of classical through to contemporary roof designs that are manufactured to individual specification. As well as manufacturing and installing roofs, Express can complete all the base work in preparation for the extension and can complete internal works and electrics. Roof and aluminium structures include:

  • Aluminium conservatories
