255 Integrated Folding Window

Designed to complement our high-quality folding and double-swing doors, the Centor 255 Integrated Folding Window perfectly frames any view, and features the same wood interior options and thermally-improved aluminum construction.

For inside-outside living without the compromises, the Centor 255 Integrated Folding Window incorporates built-in screens and shades to control insects, sunlight and privacy. Our shades also enhance the thermal properties of the door, with independent tests showing that the blackout shade improves the U-value by 17% when drawn across the opening.

  • Wood interior in five unfinished options or primed for painting. Aluminum exterior in a range of standard or custom colors.
  • Engineered to last a lifetime – extrusions are painted after cutting and machining so all surfaces are coated, reducing the probability of filiform corrosion.
  • Hidden hardware, including Access AutoLatch™, AutoLatch™ and concealed hinge.
  • Integrated insect screens and shades are accessible for service or replacement. 
  • Screen box facings are available to enable simple installation into an existing opening.

Integrated screens and shades

Built into the window frame, our innovative integrated insect screens and shades are a world-first offering. They allow homeowners to enjoy inside-outside living without the compromises traditionally associated with large openings – insects, glare and loss of privacy.

Centor screens for Integrated Windows are built into the window frame
Screens
Choose between two mesh types to keep even the smallest insects out of your home, like Deb: “Although there are a lot of midges near the moorland, we really didn’t expect to need it very much. It’s been so useful though!”
Centor shades for Integrated Windows retract from sight into the window frame when not in use
Shades
Available in three patterns and a range of colors, choose our retractable light-filtering or block-out shades, like Gillian: “I didn’t want any curtains in my house, but I wanted the capability to occasionally block the light out and to close the windows off at night.”
