Flush-line Handle Flush-line Handle Flush-line Handle

Our Flush-line handles are stylish, clean and contemporary. They are recessed into the sash profile in order to provide an almost flush finish, and result in a really tight stacking bifold door. They are robust and enable you to pull in the doors without the need for additional D-handles. The handles drive heavy duty shoot bolt locking and have a key locking facility.

Available Handle Colours:

White Black Dark Grey Chrome Brushed Stainless Steel Trend / Sensations RAL

Please note: You can choose to have the handle casing and trim to match or in chrome to highlight the handle. The screw cap on the handle is white on the white handle and black on all other handle colours.

Buffer Magnet Options

Buffer Magnet

Buffer Magnet

Buffer magents are used on door configurations where they are needed to prevent the traffic door handles hitting into the adjacent panel as the door is opened. They are also used to secure the traffic door panel to the adjacent panel, holding them in an open position and keeping them from being taken by the wind.

The buffer magnets come in a range of finishes, but it is not recommended to get them painted to match the door. A wet paint finish is used, which is not as durable as a baked on factory finish and wont last five minutes when applied to a buffer magnet.

Available Colours:

White Black Dark Grey Chrome

If you want a stainless steel buffer magnet please speak to us. We can RAL colour buffer magnets, but they carry no guarentee.
