School Bi Fold Door Installation

We carried out this school bi fold door installation for Thurnham Infant School. Originally, they had concertina doors to provide separation of two of their classrooms. The School liked them because they folded all the way back allowing the classroom to be opened up. However they were very fragile and easily they broken.

This led to the school asking us to come up with a solution. We came up with three. 1) Reduce the existing opening by building a stud wall and supplying and installing a pair of doors. 2) Reduce the existing opening by building a stud wall and installing an oak bi fold door. 3) Supply and install a bespoke oak bifold door in the large existing opening.

The school went with option 2. Consequently the works were carried out over a half term holiday. The oak doors were finished in a clear varnish with a DDA compliant lock and handle installed at low level. This provided easy use for children. Finger guards were also installed around the edges of the doors to protect the children’s fingers.

The staff are overjoyed with the finished product and the school have even invited us back to do more.
