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.
