You Can't Get Better Says Quick-Fit Fitter

Stellar aluminium bifold doors in a bedroom

The Stellar aluminium bifold is getting rave reviews for how quick it is to install, with one installer saying it's the fastest he's fitted - now Stellar is set for greater appeal as its new hardware allows for wider door apertures.

Installer Darren Young of DP Young Joinery in Stoke-on-Trent summed says: “It is the best bifold I’ve ever fitted. I saved loads of time because the beads clipped in and it gave the neatest finish I’ve seen. Plus the speed of fitting - about an hour quicker than a comparative aluminium bifold.”


Wider appeal

The product comes from Epwin Window Systems. The new hardware meets all quality and testing standards. It is PAS24:2016 compliant; meets BS 6375-2 accreditation for the operation and load strength of internal/external doorsets; and has undergone all weather, security and cycle testing at the new larger door sash sizes.


 “The new Stellar bifold door hardware allows for an increase in sash sizes of 1200w x 2500h with a maximum height plus width of 3500. This allows the Stellar bifold to be used in wider door apertures which are very much on-trend with consumers at this time.”

Decorative finishes

The door hardware range is available in black finish as standard and 7016 anthracite grey is available to order too.


Quick fitting properties

Like all products in the Stellar portfolio, the Stellar bifold door was designed to help installers maximise their productivity on site with the quick fitting properties of the products.  This is achieved by the patent-pending knock-in beads, typically seen on PVC-U products, which makes glazing quick and straightforward.


New normal

The ease with which the Stellar bifold is installed is impressive and it’s an element of the overall system’s design that has never been more important with the industry fitting in the ‘new normal’. And with the introduction of the new Stellar bifold hardware to deliver on larger aperture sizes too, it delivers another powerful proposition for aluminium fabricators and installers.
