Premium Aluminum Accordion Doors

Aluminum is the modern window or door framing material of choice allowing a new built home to have a contemporary feel no matter how traditional the design of the property is.

The aluminum that goes into making our concertina door is premium-grade, coming from prime billets rather than re-melting scrap. It’s a hugely versatile metal that allows us to build all kinds of complex door configurations without compromising on lightness, quality or resilience.

Aluminum’s innate strength ensures our doors are secure, energy efficient and resistant to warping or flexing, even in the worst of weather conditions. We finish the frames with a high-grade local powder coating, ensuring a scratch-resistant and completely smooth surface. Concealed hardware and slim sightlines make sure you have the best possible view of your world outside.

Why Choose Aluminum?

  • Low Maintenance and extremely durable; won’t split, swell, crack or warp. Longer lifespan than wood, plastic or vinyl options
  • Very light yet stronger mechanical strength levels than other options, allowing for slimmer profiles and maximized visibility
  • A range of powder coating options ensures aluminum doors can be perfectly colour matched to any decor
  • Corrosion and weather resistant under a range of harsh environmental conditions
  • Aluminum has one of the highest recycling rates of any metal and is an environmentally sustainable material

Inspired by colour

You might be perfectly satisfied with a contemporary black, white or split finish (black exterior / white interior) door. Alternatively, your taste might be much more adventurous. With our Lexario Exterior Bi-Fold Door, you have the choice of over 200 RAL shades and we offer split finish options, with an alternate colour interior vs. exterior, as we powder coat locally, before we roll your profiles together…truly Made In Canada.

So whether you’re looking to match your specific brand colour, a bright primary shade, a candy-coloured pastel or a deep, earthy tone, Lexario’s extensive colour palette options will surely inspire you.

Our aluminum products are powder coated with the highest quality local powder coating services and are virtually maintenance free. We use Tiger Drylac® Super Durable high performance powder coatings intended for residential window and door frame applications.

Custom colour options are also available as there are hundreds of RAL colours that you can choose from. To choose your colour accurately and to get a more precise idea of what the colour looks like, it is advised that you obtain a printed RAL colour chart from your local decorators’ merchant.

Custom colours are subject to additional costs and lead times.

We stock our black and white and are able to offer a split finish, black exterior / white interior with faster lead times in any black or white combination.

Hardware

Active Door / Lever Handle

Premium German made brushed stainless active door handles are fitted to the main access door, an aesthetically pleasing and durable locking door handle ergonomically designed and engineered. You can choose a lever/lever handle or lever/flat handle option; the latter reduces the stacking widths of the doors.

Locking Cylinder

Premium German made brushed stainless locking cylinder sits above the lever handle. Each handle set comes complete with 3x keys.

Pull Handle

All Lexario aluminum folding door systems are supplied with 316 grade stainless steel pull handles, ideal for coastal regions. Pull handles are located internally to assist the rotation of your turn handles into locking position.

Turn Handle

The primary use is to operate the locking rod mechanism; a simple twist of the handle locates the locking rod bolts into position within the top & bottom profiles securing the door into position. All door systems are supplied with powder coated flat handles matching your interior colour selection.
