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 individual elements are guided using special rollers in tubular track systems on the lintel. The robust, flexible and space-saving door design with few parts subject to wear is exceptionally rugged, has a long service life, is almost maintenance-free, and thus highly economical. Single-walled or double-walled doors are used depending on the operator’s specifications.
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.
