Bi-Fold Timber Doors – the perfection solution

Bi-Fold Timber Doors – the perfection solution

Bi-fold doors are the perfect solution for creating more space in your home. If space is, or feels, limited by the use of standard entry doors around your home, the problem can be easily solved with the help of Bi-fold doors. Bi-folds typically consist of single light glazing panels set in hinged timber frames. Bi-folds have the ability to open up any space by creating large entryways. Your Bi-fold doors can be crafted from a range of timbers, easily matching any other timber joinery (I.e. Deck) around your home. Timber Bi-fold doors look natural and elegant in appearance, which is highly desirable, and are one of ALLKIND’s specialties.

For Your Project

New Guinea RosewoodSurian CedarMerbauAmooraWestern Red Cedar

NEW GUINEA ROSEWOOD

New Guinea Rosewood (‘NGR’) is a stable hardwood that doesn’t chip, split and bleed as much as most other comparable hardwoods. NGR has a high rating against cracks and shrinkage, and is easier to sand, paint and polish than other softer woods. The price of NGR is economical compared to other comparable species of hardwoods. NGR can be more susceptible to slight leeching if not properly sealed with oil based paints. ALLKIND is proudly an Australian owned company based in QLD, and we source our New Guinea Rosewood from Australian timber merchants.

Appearance
Natural Golden Yellow and Brown colour with a variable grain, giving NGR a desirable natural appearance with character.

Excellent: Hardness, Finish, Stability, Durability and Machining.
Good: Resistance to Splitting.

SURIAN CEDAR

Surian Cedar (‘SC’) is a durable timber with a high rating against cracks and shrinking. SC is a lighter wood, and is more affordable than some other timber species. SC is softer than its comparable hardwood counterparts, and can be susceptible to slightly more movement. Paint finishing of SC requires more attention than, for example, New Guinea Rosewood. ALLKIND is proudly an Australian owned company based in QLD, and we source our Surian Cedar from Australian timber merchants.

Appearance
Darker Brown to Red colour with a consistent grain.

Excellent: Finish and Durability
Good: Stability, Machining and Resistance to Splitting
Medium: Hardness

MERBAU

Merbau is a strong and durable hardwood, commonly used for timber joinery framing, decking and cladding. Merbau is one of the hardest woods available on the Australian market, though can be more susceptible to leaching than other comparable timbers. ALLKIND is proudly an Australian owned company based in QLD, and we source our Merbau from Australian timber merchants.

Appearance
Well-defined yellow to brown and dark red brown colour with an interlocked grain.

Excellent: Hardness and Durability
Good: Finish, Stability, Machining and Resistance to Splitting

AMOORA

Amoora is stable hardwood with a desirable finish that requires less attention when painting than softer woods. Amoora can typically be slightly more affordable than some other timbers, and is often criticized for its very heavy weight and abrasiveness on tools. It is also know to be more susceptible to splits and cracks, with a lower rating against movement than comparable timbers such as New Guinea Rosewood. ALLKIND is proudly an Australian owned company based in QLD, and we source our Amoora from Australian timber merchants.

Appearance
Plain pink and brown colour with a consistent grain.

Excellent: Hardness and Finish
Good: Durability
Neutral: Stability, and Resistance to Splitting
Fair: Machining

WESTERN RED CEDAR

Western Red Cedar (‘WRC’) is a relatively durable but very soft wood, commonly used only for cabinetry detailing and cladding. WRC is more susceptible to movement than most other comparable timbers. ALLKIND often recommends alternative solutions before using WRC for timber joinery in Queensland homes, as it is not a strong performing timber in the humid, sub-tropical climate.

Appearance
Yellowish to brown colour with a straight grain and uneven texture.

Good: Finish, Machining, Resistance to Splitting.
Poor: Hardness
