The selection of Harmonica Bi-Fold doors is available in every profile system of our wood, aluminum, and steel offering, EXCEPT for the steel lnnovativ-ST 60. Even though they exist, we have decided not to offer any uPVC versions of these doors. These doors are designed for unblocked full-opening Patio, Terrace, and Deck access. While they have made a name for themselves in very exclusive high-end luxury applications, we believe that some of our offering is attainable for well-built middle-class homes. There are various configuration options where there can be single operable sashes that function as a single operable door. In addition, there are now fairly equal options for both inside or outside-stacking variants.
