On a nice day, the thought of removing a wall of your home – temporarily, at least – is a pleasant one. After all, what better way to draw the outdoors inside? With its European-style glazing systems, Tiltco Architectural, a Canadian manufacturer since 1988, has long made that possible, letting homeowners replace brick and mortar with elegant, operable, floor-to-ceiling windows.
Of course, Toronto is no always-sunny city, and when the temperature drops, those same windows will have to keep the cold out. Whether open or closed, however, the transformation inside is remarkable. Light streams in, lifting up otherwise dim, dark interiors, while unobstructed exterior views make the outdoors an extension of the home. Much as we’d like, not all homes can accommodate a lengthy, unbroken stretch of sliding glass. Luckily, along with Tiltco’s industry-leading product lineup, including the Hi-Finity system and Lift and Slide doors, there’s the ever-versatile CF77 Folding Door.
The CF77 brings the same ultra-transparent, highly thermally insulated window design common across Tiltco’s entire range to a versatile folding door system, offering architects and design professionals maximum flexibility. With space-efficient design that can be configured to open both inward and outward, and is effortlessly operated on a built-in bottom rolling system, it’s a value-engineered option that can work where other, larger systems don’t. It doesn’t dispense with sought after features, either. The CF77 is available in slim and concealed-sill options, and has a main door feature as well, providing a means of quickly stepping in and out.
Modern homes call for both high style and high performance, and with Tiltco’s CF77 Folding Door, architects and designers don’t have to choose one or the other. Where flexibility is needed, the CF77 delivers, offering multiple configurations and premium features. For homeowners, it means not compromising on their home, whether they want to open it up on sunny days, or shut the door come winter. TILTCO.COM
