Daniel Wells, Director at Runners Sliding Door Systems commented “The ordering process for Tommafold is very easy. Our customers call us and provide basic details about the bi-fold door that will be installed, like how many doors and the size of the entrance, then our customer service advisers put together and dispatch the exact kit required to install the door, this saves our customers the hassle of thinking about all the components needed for each and every installation”.
Security has featured prominently in the design process of Tommafold gear, with concealed fixings, there are no external parts that can be damaged. Tommafold door hinges cannot be removed from the shaft once installed, have a 10mm heavy duty shaft and a security locking screw that’s only accessible from inside the property.
Glen added, “Over the years we have suggested adaptations for the Tommafold kit and Runners Sliding Door Systems, the UK and European distributor have used this feedback as part of their continuous improvement of the kit itself”
