4500 Doors: Commercial Application

Bi-Fold

The Elements Architectural PVCu System 4500 bi-fold door design is a premium solution for spaces that need a wide, unobstructed opening. Whether for residential or commercial applications, this unique door design allows up to seven sash panels to fold to either side, creating a wide opening without any interruption. This design can be easily matched with a variety of window and door configurations. Multi-locking mechanisms on the folding sash panels and smooth riding rollers on the top and bottom running tracks protect against intrusion while still allowing for complete clearance when sash panels are opened to the side.

Design a Door To Your Own Specifications

Choose the opening width of your patio door with a configuration of up to seven seperate sash panels. All panels can be folded to one side, or they can be divided in any combination and stacked up against both sides of the opening.
