Teckentrup folding doors

Folding doors are commonly installed in very wide hall openings up to 16 meters, but also wherever spatial relationships are constrained inside or around the lintel. The door leaf of a folding door consists of multiple vertical elements that are connected to one another via hinges. The side elements are also attached to the frame via hinges, which is attached to the wall. In most cases, the individua elements are guided using special rollers in tubular track systems on the lintel.

Areas of use for folding doors

Unheated plants still employ single-walled folding doors, but heat-insulated folding doors are more commonly installed today because they achieve excellent heat insulation due to their sealing cores made of PU foam or mineral wool. The outer skin of the door leaf is made of galvanised steel panels on both sides. Ideally, welding is to be avoided when assembling the components in order to avoid the occurrence of corrosion. Folding doors open to the side and are available in 90-degree or 180-degree versions. Various fill and glazing options expand your room to play with the design.

Special fast release mechanisms are used for folding doors for the fire brigade. 2:2 coupled doors can also be equipped with an electric drive.
