Modern Timber Bi-fold Windows
Timber bi-fold windows look great from any angle and are one of our most popular products. Bi-folds fold to open up almost all of the frame area, providing maximum air circulation and an unobstructed view. They have discreet hardware with bearings running along the sill tracks. You can select the number of bi-fold window sashes that would be best suited for your window, depending on the width of the opening. A popular application for timber bi-fold windows is to have the bi-folds top-hung over a servery, opening out from your kitchen to outdoor dining area.

for Your Bi-fold Windows
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.
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 (‘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.
Darker Brown to Red colour with a consistent grain.
Excellent: Finish and Durability
Good: Stability, Machining and Resistance to Splitting
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.
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 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.
Plain pink and brown colour with a consistent grain.
Excellent: Hardness and Finish
Neutral: Stability, and Resistance to Splitting
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.
Yellowish to brown colour with a straight grain and uneven texture.
Good: Finish, Machining, Resistance to Splitting.
