Outdoor Sliding Solution By Häfele
Whether it’s your high-rise sea facing condo, your vacation bungalow by the beach or a villa in the mountains, there is always a need of not only an uninhibited getaway to those luscious sun baked, rain-kissed meadows but also of a formidable barricade against detrimental elements like blizzards, bugs, smog and even burglars. This is where the importance of choosing the correct outdoor fittings becomes crucial.
With Häfele’s Weatherfold 100 EF, an external end-fixing sliding-folding system, watch your adventurous architectural ideas unfold into an exciting reality. This system caters to multiple weight carrying capacities ranging from 50 kg to 100 kg per door and can carry doors which are up to 1000 mm wide and 3000 mm high.
In addition to the sliding hardware being highly durable and corrosion resistant it is also ‘Secured by Design’ where the intermediate hanger hinge, bottom guides and pivot come with a unique, non-removal pin technology that guarantees enhanced security.
This system can be teamed with Häfele’s Retractable Pleated Insect Screen to provide a holistic external solution. The Insect screen is extremely simple to operate and can be stacked neatly away when not in use. It is compatible for installation with windows, folding doors, sliding and French / Patio door applications.
- Equal door sizes: Due to the use and application of the offset hardware, all door panels of the Weatherfold 100 EF system can be of the same size (including the fixed and end panels)
- Resistant to weather damages: Weatherfold 100 EF has been tested for Water penetration, Air infiltration and Ultimate Strength resistance to heavy winds. The Insect Screen is fitted with high strength tension cords that provide stability to the structure and help prevent the mesh from blowing out of its channels in windy conditions (wind test withstanding wind gusts up to 30kph.)
- Endurance and durability: All hardware used in the Weatherfold system undergoes rigorous testing of minimum 50,000 cycles and a neutral salt spray test of 1000 hours.
- Reliability: The Weatherfold 100 EF system and the Retractable Insect Screen provide years of trouble-free operation, backed by a 10 and 5-year warranty respectively against manufacturing defect or material flaw
