I am an architectural designer currently working on a project in NYC. For the two exterior wide doorway bifold doors that we are currently designing, we will have to add a window system to the face of the bi-fold door structure. In my initial research for cladding, I have been looking through the Designer Door case studies on your site and have seen several exterior solutions in which window systems were added to the face of door structure. Are there common cladding vendors that you work with that are familiar with your bi-fold system that you would be able to share? I wanted to check before going down paths of searching for manufacturers/vendors of cladding systems that are unfamiliar with this type of application/might not be ultimately compatible. Thank you very much for any information that you can provide.
