This offering in 2017 produced from the Smarts Systems profiles is the Visofold 6000 this product has been made to offer the slimmest profiles available today. The sightline where two doors meet is only 84mm. Because of the slim profiles, this product has more limitations than other product in the group. Max sash width of 1000mm and max height of 2.2 metres. This is a great looking door.
Smarts Visofold 4000
The first bifold door produced from the Smarts Systems profiles was the Visofold 4000 this bifold door has intermediate running mullions. Consumers found this door to have quite great sightlines, but the door is well suited to the large panel doors.

Smarts Visofold 1000 update
Smarts have introduced a new outer frame option for the Visofold 1000 this system has three great additional features.
- Side frame adjuster ensuring perfect setup.
- Internal frame face is flat: this feature eliminates the problem installers and homeowners have with the internal finishing of the plaster reveals.
- Cill threshold: The cill and threshold are combined making it a low threshold without the need for an additional threshold on top of the cill.
The Visofold 1000 DV17 outer frame when combined with the cill threshold is a great door.
Bifold door thresholds
Smart Systems offer a range of different thresholds to suit every need. The low thresholds are for internal doors and doors in sheltered locations. Today many homeowners are choosing to use these low thresholds even in exposed locations. The advice for these clients is the rebated threshold has a weather rating certificate. All of the low thresholds installed in exterior doors run the risk of water and wind penetration in extreme weather conditions. We will, of course, do our best to reduce this possibility but homeowners are the people who accept that this could be a problem. Prepare your building correctly then it is possible to install the rebated threshold, so it appears flush.
Smarts coloured profile
Aluminium bifold doors are powder-coated paint finish. Of course, there are popular colours RAL 7016 anthracite grey, RAL 9010 white and RAL 9005 black these colours are painted in large quantities each week and therefore are the most cost-effective. There are hundreds of colours, and they are all available but will attract an additional charge and depending on the size of order a minimum paint charge this is because each time a colour is changed the paint plant has to clean down the equipment and ensure no cross-contamination happens between colours.
