Folding Shutter Doors
IDC Folding Shutter Doors are hard to match for a strong, robust door. The proportional movement of the folding shutter door, controlled by a pantograph system, provides a design which is tough and yet smooth and easy to operate and which will tolerate the most extreme weather conditions. These robust doors are popular on wider openings, as they are unaffected by wind.
Folding Shutters – Little Headroom Required
The top hung, single or double units stack neatly to the side of the opening and occupy very little headroom. To enable movement of folding shutter doors a floor channel is generally required.
As folding shutter doors can be arranged to fit around crane beams or railway catenary wires they are ideal for warehouses and locomotive or carriage sheds. Any number of fixed or floating folding door units can be combined to cover openings of virtually any width. Single or double units can be power operated and fitted with a wide range of control options. These doors can be manually or electrically operated.
Folding shutter doors are generally more expensive to install than rolling shutter doors.
We find that most of our folding shutter door work is for repair or replacement of existing folding shutter doors.
Most new doors are required by building regs to have insulation properties. This is one of the reasons for the trend away from sliding folding doors to roller shutter doors.
