Coastal Group has included bifold hardware options in its BLU range of 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel hardware, in response to the harsh conditions they often find themselves in.
Bifold door hardware typically has to withstand a lot from the elements, the company said. They’re often installed on coastal property, or on the side of the property facing the sun. And with bifolds designed to be open a lot of the time even the internal hardware is exposed to the elements more than usual.
Coastal Group said it had received feedback from manufacturers and installers that their current hardware suffered corroding and ‘whitening’, and was therefore unfit for purpose.
Companies can now offer a range of hardware that will not only last the lifetime of the doors, but that can also be suited with the rest of the door and window hardware on the property, the company said.
