Aluminium Kitchen Island Folding Door

If you’re looking for a heavy duty folding door & safer option for a countertop island in your kitchen, you can opt for our YK Aluminium Kitchen Island Folding Door.

There are four types of profiles for aluminium collapsible doors:

1-  3/8 inches: This is the thinnest one among the four other aluminium profiles frames. It is suited for door sizes that are within 3*7ft.

Place to use: toilet door & kitchen door

2-  2/8 inches: This is the optimal thickness for the aluminium profile as it does not obstruct your view if you’re looking from the inside of the kitchen. It is suitable for use as an interior door.

Place to use: living hall/room divider door, kitchen door/toilet door

3-  4/8 inches: This is the 2nd thickest aluminium profile that is widely used as exterior doors for HDB/Condo.

Place to use: balcony door, living hall divider & kitchen door

4- European Profile door: The thickest aluminium profile for a collapsible door. Mostly used as exterior doors that exceed 7ft. This profile can sustain the weight of a larger aluminium collapsible door. Commonly used for landed property as it is a durable option.

Place to use: Balcony door, living hall divider, landed property main entrance door

Among the 4 types of aluminium profile, the 2nd & 3th option are the profiles available for kitchen island collapsible doors. It’s highly recommended to go for a 2 2/8 inches aluminium profile as it is not too thick to the extent it will block the view of the kitchen,while also being safe and durable, making it a safer and anti-acoustic option.
