Smarts 1000 New Generation Slimline Bi-folds Security Features

When anyone has new windows or doors installed in their home, security is always at the forefront of their mind.

That is why all of our doors have been designed and manufactured with security in mind. Not only giving people what they want, but what they need; excellent security without compromise. With our doors you can have peace of mind and rest assure that your home is safe and secure.

The key security features of these doors are outlined below:

High Security Multipoint Locking
Traffic doors allow for outside access and as a result need to be highly secure. Traffic Doors are fitted with the latest high security, Secured By Design, multipoint locking as standard.

The locking mechanism is operated by a Lever-lever handle and has a total of six locking points. Two deep throw hook locks, lock into the outerframe, so even if the intermediate shoot bolts are not engaged the doors cannot be pulled open. There is also a standard latch, dead bolt, and two fitter friendly adjustable roller cams at the top and bottom of the doors that pull the doors in tight and provide excellent weathering.

Double traffic doors have a master and a slave door. The master door has the locking described above and locks into keeps situated on the slave door. While the slave door has additional shoot bolt locking top and bottom, which are operated by a lockable Pendulum Handle. Please note traffic doors with pedulum handles, operate the same shootbolt lock.

High Security Superior Locking Cylinder
The weakest point of a locking system is more often than not the locking cylinder. The locking cylinder that is used on these doors is no ordinary locking cylinder. We use a high security superior snap secure locking cylinder, as standard. It is pick resistant, bump resistant and drill resistant.

It passes PAS024 testing without the need for security handles or cylinder guards and provides the highest levels of security demanded by the BSI & Secured by Design. Giving you added peace of mind, for no additional cost.

This is the police preferred specification, which focuses on crime prevention.

Lockable Intermediate Handles
Despite the fact that the intermediate handles are generally to the inside only, all of these handles have a key locking facility as standard. This is just so you can simply lock the handle on the inside, as you would your windows, for added peace of mind. This is especially useful on bifold door styles without a traffic door, or outside access.

The key on all intermediate handle cylinders can be keyed-a-like so that you only need one key to operate every intermediate handle, on each of your bifold doors. However since the traffic doors and outside access doors use a superior locking cylinder you will always have a separate key for these doors.

Lockable Intermediate Handles

Heavy Duty Shoot Bolts
Heavy duty shoot bolts secure the door at the top and bottom of each intermediate panel. Each set of shoot bolts is operated by a pendulum handle. They are specially designed to provide a tight fit giving maximum compression for increased weather performance and are chamfered for smooth easy engagement when securing the panels into the outer frame.

They firmly secure the doors in place, to create a solid barrier to protect against forced entry.

Dedicated Bogie Guide
The bogie wheel assemblies have a dedicated guide that runs inside the channel of the outer frame, at the top and bottom of the doors. This guide not only gives the doors additional strength and stability, but also provide anti-jemmy security, preventing the folding panels from being forced or levered off the track.

This guide has been cleverly designed to protect you against forced entry and help to keep the doors stable and running smoothly.

Dedicated Bogie Guide

High Security Glazing
The glass for our Folding Sliding Doors is toughened safety glass as standard. The sealed units are then internally glazed with a high security glazing bead for added security and ease of installation.

Because the sealed units are installed internally they can only be removed from inside the property.

You can upgrade to 6mm laminated glass for further strength and security (at an additional cost).

Cylinder Snapping

Complete Bi-Folds UK are committed to providing the most secure doors and bi-folding doors on the market, due to the short comings of standard door cylinder locks we now offer a range of superior locking cylinders. Door cylinder snapping is on the rise. With every day tools, an educated, knowledgeable and experienced burglar can break in through a standard door cylinder lock in less than 30 seconds.

With one of our high security superior locking cylinders this is not possible. An opportunistic burglar may snap and remove the external half of these superior cylinders, but the internal half remains locked and secure. These cylinders achieve this by blocking access to the internal mechanism, once the external half has been snapped off.
