Bottoms up: Henderson Introduces Bottom Rolling Hardware for Timber Folding Doors

P C Henderson is pleased to announce the launch of its much anticipated Securefold Bottom Rolling hardware – a folding door solution that carries the load of the doors at the bottom of the system, removing the need for major structural building support.

Designed for timber framed exterior doors, the new hardware is ideal for applications where top hung structural support is often lacking such as in conservatories, extensions, orangeries and outbuildings. Securefold Bottom Rolling allows P C Henderson to cater for a much more niche type of market where perhaps product options for end users are slightly limited.

As well as utilising advanced bottom rolling technology, the system also features some further innovative design elements, including the roller being purposefully situated directly underneath the door making it barely visible when the doors are closed. Eliminating the need for an often restricting upper beam also frees up design space – a feature which may be of particular interest to architects and designers.

Fergus Pickard, Product Development Director at P C Henderson, comments: 
“We are delighted to be able to bring a product such as Securefold Bottom Rolling to the market. The system can be used in both residential and commercial properties and is extremely easy to install as it uses pre-existing components from the Securefold range, one of our most popular products which is familiar to many of our customers.
“The product also has the advantage of requiring very little ongoing maintenance which is a huge benefit to the end user. Due to the weight of the door being carried at the bottom of the system rather than the top, any natural building movements that occur over time will have minimal effect on the door position - reducing the need for adjustments and installer visits.”
Securefold Bottom Rolling presents a huge growth opportunity for joiners, distributors and installers looking to expand their offering and enter into new markets. For instance, the home improvement market which includes new extensions and replacements, is expected to grow 7 percent per annum between 2016 and 2020. Additionally, timber as a frame material has increased its market share to over 20 percent as consumers prioritise aesthetics and sustainability above cost[1]. 

The cleverly designed system is perfect for new builds as well as retrofitting onto existing properties. It caters for timber framed doors measuring a maximum of 3000mm x 1000 mm x 68mm (H x W x D), with a maximum weight of 80kg. Its components feature sophisticated technology that provides users with a smooth fingertip operation. 

Made from Marine Grade 316 stainless steel for enhanced weather and corrosion resistance, it is available with a variety of different hinge options and 4 different colour finishes including satin, polished chrome, PVD black and gold.

P C Henderson’s online Expert Specification Tool is available to help with specifying sliding or folding door projects of any nature with detailed digital brochures available for download from its new website.
