Visofold 1000 Folding Door System
Visofold can be used in domestic applications as either an alternative to sliding doors, or to open up an entire wall as part of a conservatory; the system will make the most of a beautiful view or bring a garden into the home.
Used commercially in a bar, café or restaurant, Visofold can create a glazed screen that allows in the maximum ingress of light in inclement weather, and will also easily glide to open up an entire wall in warmer weather. Visofold doors offer a choice of opening configurations to suit any application. Choose to fold the sashes internally or externally, place the opening at the side so the sashes all fold one way, at one end, to create a single entrance door for easy access, or in the middle to give the option of a double door.
All Visofold profiles feature a polyamide thermal break that enhances the thermal performance of the profile and improves the overall U-Value. Profiles feature EPDM high quality gaskets and weather brushes to aid weather resistance. Visofold complies with the requirements of Building Regulations Document L 2010. Security is assured by multi-point lock mechanisms on main opening sashes, and shoot-bolt locking on floating mullions.
All Visofold doors have the option of either low thresholds for unimpeded, easy access, or rebated thresholds that offer improved weather resistance. Visofold doors are available in a choice of standard or non-standard colours, including metallic, wood-structure, dual colour and Smart’s unique Sensations range of textured finishes.

We work on many different types of projects including Folding doors, windows and conservatories.
On each project, we make an initial free of charge survey, prepare a detailed quotation and on acceptance, immediately start the manufacture. Many of our clients have very specific requirements and each job is unique. Many want the work completed very quickly and we do our best to accomodate all needs.
On one project a client needed 4 sets of Folding doors across wide spans and completed by a specific date which was within only one month in time for a family barbeque. No problem, the job was completed on time to the clients precise requirements! See our client testimonials...
Our own dedicated installers are highly trained and will ensure the job runs smoothly and with the least inconvenience to you. We also ensure that the finishing and surrounds are repaired or made good to the highest standard.
The Visofold series of folding doors from Smart Systems is mostly used in private houses, stores, hotels and restaurants, in order to open a complete wall to create a larger space in the summer season. The system can also be utilised in conservatories as a screen which you can open completely to enjoy the lazy summer days.
