What is a Folding Accordion Door?

June 23, 2022 | Security & Safety

A Folding Accordion Door is made of a series of hinged glass panels that stack together neatly as they slide open. Offering both practical and aesthetic benefits, bi-fold sliding doors are a popular choice for businesses looking for an efficient way to manage space and create seamless transitions between rooms.

Folding doors are versatile and easy to operate. With minimal effort, you can draw them back to open up a room or push them forward to quickly close it off. Their clean, modern design makes them a perfect fit for any business or building, such as:

  • Bars
  • Restaurants
  • Gyms
  • Galleries
  • Banquet Halls
  • Shopping Centers
  • Storefronts
  • Offices
  • Hotels
  • Studios
  • Convention Centers
  • Warehouses

Installing folding doors allows fresh air to circulate, permits unhindered movement, and produces a bright, relaxing atmosphere with unobstructed views. When open, they free 90 percent of the door space and sit off to one side, completely out of the way. What’s more, folding accordion doors can be retrofitted to nearly any building. No matter the size, structure, or configuration, we can custom build them to meet the needs of your business.

Folding Door Construction

Folding doors not only create a better environment, they’re a durable, efficient, and adaptable solution. While most are made from glass and aluminum, you can wooden frames are also available to match the look and feel of your business. Owners can choose tinted, tempered, or laminated glass. Double or triple panes provide added security, while thermal glass prevents energy loss.

A functional and stylish addition to interior and exterior spaces, folding door systems connect your building, giving staff and customers quick and easy access to your business.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Dan Sharon W.
Johnny from Vortex doors came early, quickly identified the issue and fixed it correctly. Spot on and great customer service.....
Jose D.
I had several issues with my doors at my business and Vortex came today and solved all my problems. Ray and Chris were awesome they took their time to fix all the issues and made sure the jobs done were to my standards. I have dealt with other door companies over the past 4 years and not one of them were able to solve all my problems and one of them made them worse. I am really pleased with Vortex and the Techs Ray and Chris. They even cleaned their mess!??

Our business has a loading dock with a roll up bay door. The bay door was bent off the tracks, and we found it couldn't be closed or moved up or down. Our initial call had a response time of about 30 minutes. They showed up, diagnosed the issue, and provided a fix time of 4-6 weeks.Of course we weren't delighted, but we wanted to move forward. They understood that having a bay door that didn't close was a major issue for us and they immediately began to troubleshoot, finding a solution for us. Early that next morning we had Daniel show up and said he can get us operational (door being able to open, close, and secured) within 3 hours. They finished in 2. Daniel, Phillip, and Conner made the the security of our building at Pacific Office Automation a priority for us again, and it was all done in less than 24 hours. I have nothing but good things to say about this experience.Response time was A+, problem solving was A+, and we will be using them in the future for any and all of our needs. I guess we can close the door on this one.
