Improving Security with Technal's Folding Sliding Doors

At Technal, we understand that the seamless blend of security and design is paramount for residential and commercial spaces. With this understanding, our folding sliding doors are engineered to set the standard for architectural elegance while delivering unparalleled protection. 


In this blog, we will discuss how, through rigorous in-house testing and partnerships with certified installers across Europe, Technal offers sophisticated security solutions that prioritize customer safety without compromising aesthetic appeal.


Technal's Dedication to Security


Security is foundational to our product development philosophy. Whether you're an architect, building contractor, or homeowner, our folding sliding doors deliver advanced locking mechanisms and durable materials to protect your property against intrusion while allowing you to create inviting, well-lit environments. Here's how our solutions help you achieve this:


Advanced Locking Mechanisms: Every Technal folding sliding door has multi-point locking systems that secure each panel. These systems are designed to offer optimal security by engaging multiple locking points when closed, providing peace of mind against unauthorized access.


Robust Materials: Our aluminum profiles are built with Hydro CIRCAL®, which contains a minimum of 75% recycled end-of-life aluminum. This material is exceptionally robust, lightweight, and eco-friendly, offering high resistance to corrosion, impact, and extreme weather conditions. The result is a strong, resilient frame that withstands everyday wear and tear.


Certification and Testing: Our folding sliding doors undergo stringent certification tests for watertightness, air permeability, wind resistance, and intrusion resistance. We design products that meet European and international standards while passing our rigorous internal quality checks.


Highlighting Technal’s Leading Products


To illustrate how security features seamlessly integrate into Technal's designs, let's look at our premier folding sliding door ranges: ARTLINE XL, TIGAL, LUMEAL, and SOLEAL.


ARTLINE XL Folding Sliding Doors


Advanced Security Features: ARTLINE XL incorporates a multipoint locking system that offers automatic closing and a key-activated lock from the inside. With panels rated up to 1,200 kg, this system provides incredible resilience.


Concealed Frame Design: The frame is hidden within the masonry for a minimalist finish, leaving only the slender vertical intersections of the glass visible.


Impact Resistance: The system has undergone EN 13155 class 4 mechanical impact testing, ensuring it meets the highest standards for safety and resistance.


TIGAL Folding Sliding Doors


Hybrid Security Solution: As a hybrid between sliding doors and windows, TIGAL includes a unique central sealing mechanism and multi-point locking for added intrusion resistance. The secure micro-ventilation system locks the door slightly ajar while maintaining security.


Advanced Weather Resistance: Designed for buildings in challenging environments, TIGAL’s sealing system provides up to four times the water-tightness performance of traditional sliding doors.


LUMEAL Folding Sliding Doors


Minimalist Design, Maximum Security: LUMEAL employs a concealed sash with an innovative multi-point locking system to achieve optimal protection while retaining a sleek appearance.


Refined Security: Customizable locking options range from non-locking handles to 2-point and 3-point locking mechanisms that secure the door effectively, all while ensuring smooth, silent operation.


SOLEAL Folding Sliding Doors


Evolving Security Solutions: SOLEAL's range provides adaptable security features with 1 to 4-point key-operated locking combinations available for various configurations, including corner solutions and multi-track systems.


Accessibility and Comfort: The accessibility threshold ensures that all SOLEAL patio doors comply with accessibility regulations, allowing easy entry without sacrificing protection.
