High security performance featuring dedicated BSI Kite marked cylinder locks and shoot bolt system which lock into top and bottom tracks. Low threshold removes the barrier between your indoor and outdoor space. Serious about security We already mentioned security but, as we’re so serious about it, we feel it’s worth mentioning again. Dutemänn bi-fold doors have been built with your security in mind. That’s why they only fit police-approved Secured by Design BSI kite-marked, multi-point locking cylinders on the main doors. These are backed up by concealed steel shoot-bolts on all the other panels, which engage into the top and bottom tracks therefore stopping an intruder simply lifting them from the casing – a problem with conventional patio-doors. And, if that weren’t enough, we also fit toughened safety-glass with internal beading which means the glass can’t be easily removed from the outside.
