Kestrel Aluminium commercial sliding doors offer superior finish

  • 4 Oct 2022

Sliding doors have become a mainstay for commercial venues, where they help to maximise space and meet the current trend for biophilic design, which brings the outside in and helps create a sense of harmony between contemporary buildings and the natural world. Kestrel Aluminium has more…

The folding sliding door systems specified for these commercial projects need to be far stronger and more robust than those used in domestic settings, requiring highly engineered hinges, joints and frames to ensure long-term reliability.

That’s why Kestrel’s high-quality Folding Sliding Door System is PAS 24 accredited and has been rigorously tested to 25,000 cycles to BS EN 1527 standards. This means our customers can rest assured that they are investing in a robust, reliable and secure product.

Features include multipoint locking and shoot bolts as standard, and the aluminium frame units can accept toughened or laminated safety glass in thicknesses from 24-32mm.

For those businesses that need to provide easy access for wheelchairs and other mobility devices, Kestrel can also supply a low-threshold option with just a 13mm step. A flush track for the doors offers ease of access and creates a clean, neat aesthetic that complements any contemporary interior design.

Folding Sliding Doors

Perfect for use in restaurants, bars and leisure spaces, the Folding Sliding Doors maximise views outside and create a bright, airy space for natural light to flood in.

Slimline handle styles also mean the doors can stack neatly flush against each other, creating more space for furniture such as tables and chairs.

For those properties in weather-exposed locations such as seafronts or hillsides, Kestrel has its own inhouse powder-coating facility and can offer Marine Grade anodisation to thickness grade AA25, helping protect the aluminium frames against severe atmospheric conditions, as well as single or dual-colour powder coating to suit any design requirements.

Kestrel holds significant product volumes in stock at its Birmingham-based manufacturing facility, which means customers can be sure of short lead times on their orders, with a quick turnaround from the acceptance of the drawings through to ordering materials, manufacture and installation. Kestrel’s Technical Team are always on hand to support their customers throughout the delivery and installation of the final product.

Andrew Cross, Marketing Manager, comments: “At Kestrel, we pride ourselves on our high-quality products and technical expertise, which allows us to offer our customers outstanding customer service. Our Folding Sliding Door system is robust, reliable and secure, and brings can be delivered and installed quickly and easily.”
