Its all in the installation
It doesn't matter how good your doors are, if they aren't installed properly then they will not be fit for purpose.
R & D Goatley have been installing Sunflex sliding doors for over 15 years. Our experienced craftsmen will install your new sliding door with precision and ensure a smooth operating gateway to your garden.
For extensions and new builds we can supply you with timber profiles to be built in, ensuring no complications when we come to install.
Furniture from Sunflex
Unique to Sunflex bifold doors our locking black PVC panel catch is provided when there is an odd number of panels folding in one direction. This holds the single access door on to the next panel and when all the doors are stacked open the special design prevents the single door being detached from the next door for peace of mind in windy conditions.
All handles are finished in-line with the door frame providing an uninterrupted view through the glass. Alternatively a horizontal handle with a latch can be requested for a more traditional operation.

Marine Grade Finish
For powder coated aluminium we recommend a marine treatment if you are within 5,000 metres of the coast or around a swimming pool/chemical environment. We pre-anodise the aluminium frames making them porous and then quickly after this the frames are powder coated which is absorbed in to the frame. This ensures excellent adhesion of the paint to the aluminium and along with a cleaning regime is the best possible protection for powder coated aluminium doors in this environment. Not many companies offer pre-anodising as a marine finish. Alternatively we can provide the frames in a silver anodised finish as standard which does not have a painted surface and does not need the marine treatment.
