I glazed these doors and windows yesterday (plus more not in view).
the bifold panels of glass weigh just over 30kilos each, so the doors stacked to one side is about 150kilos of weight hanging there. which illustrates why you need to install a bifold properly.
the glass is 4mm toughened clear, 16mm argon gap, 4mm toughened clear.
We made some commercial aluminium windows and bifolds for a client.
They installed the windows, but asked us to come down and install the bifolds properly.
So Here are 2 photos of the bifolds i installed this morning.

We will glaze the frames at a later date – double glazed units.
This morning we set up 2 bifolds for installation. here is a photo of the work being carried out. I left the lads there to finish the glazing, so its not a finished photo.

This Bifold had its active panel ripped off in a storm.
this is the panel that was pulled off in the wind.
You can see some of the damage to the hinges.
The doors,hinges, perimeter jambs and head, and the seals were all damaged in the storm. only a new bifold would be appropriate, repair was out of the question.
all loaded up the sunday afternoon before the install.

Cedar Bifold Window
We recently came back to a job to do some finishing touches, here are some photos;
All clear/natural anodise commercial framing. The doorframe has 2 doors, one panel smaller than the other. With invisiguard security screens. The bifold window is using CENTOR hardware and is top hung to allow for a marble servery to be used. The doors, bifold and louvre blades are also glazed with LOW-E comfort plus glass to keep heat out. The place looks great.
