Premium offer

Royal Oak Joinery produces and fits, among other things, timber windows and doors – and has been using Tommafold door gear for its latest installations as bifold doors have become popular.

Richard Deane, director at Royal Oak Joinery, said: “We have tried various bifold door component brands, and Tommafold in our view offers the best result. It’s easy to install, the components are high quality – with great safety features – and all our customers have been pleased with the result.

“Our customers order anything from two door to 16 door folding door configurations. When the job comes in we ring Runners and provide the door measurements and they list all the components required to complete the job, then we concentrate on making the timber doors and installing them in the knowledge that we have all the correct kit to finish the job.”

Tommafold offers fast instalment with carrier and guide hinges that are pre-assembled and locked into position.

“It all started when I installed a set in our family home – we photographed them and promoted them,” Richard said. “Our customers request them because they really open up the house during summer and are a real talking point as they look so different to regular doors, they certainly add a premium feel to houses.”

Tommafold has a patented hinge handle set that offers a substantial forged handle and matching hinge set. This design is exclusive to Runners, based in Buckingham, the sole distributors for the UK and Europe.
