Folding Doors

The Versatility of Commercial Folding Doors 

Commercial Folding Door Systems offer many benefits. They can be used internally and externally, and provide transitions and flexibility in many different spaces. They can also add an upscale element to an otherwise plain space.

Applications of commercial folding door systems range from warehouses and hospitals to retail spaces and restaurants. They can be used to increase the available space or to control the flow of traffic through a corridor.

The versatility of a folding door system far exceeds that of other types of automatic doors.

Folding Door Systems

Horton’s high-quality folding doors offer automatic opening and closing functions, just like sliding glass doors. However, they provide the flexibility of folding open all the way against the walls in order to increase the space when necessary.

Door panels in the folding door systems can be installed directly into the existing structures. There is no need for major renovations in order to install them. They are also energy efficient and easy to operate.

An automatic folding door system is installed as a complete package, with all necessary components. This includes the operator, header, door panels, guide rails, pivot hardware, locks and activation/safety system. They are available in both single-fold and bi-fold designs. Call on for repair and maintenance of your doors and components. 

Bifold Doors for Large Openings

Folding door systems provide lots of flexibility when dividing larger spaces. They provide an easy and attractive transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, or multi-use spaces.

Bifold doors are an excellent addition to many restaurants and hospitality spaces because of their flexibility. These businesses can easily transition guests between indoor and outdoor spaces, making events more memorable. In destination resorts and venues, they can provide unobstructed views for guests to enjoy, which increases the chance of repeat business.

In warehouse and office settings, they provide just as much flexibility, but for different reasons. Warehouses often need expanded space for large deliveries, which can be facilitated through the use of a bifold door system. For office spaces, bifold doors are more traditionally used for conference rooms that can be divided into smaller rooms or opened up to create one large meeting space.

Regardless of the industry, a bifold door system can create new spaces and allow for greater use of existing real estate.

Folding Doors for Small Entrances and Narrow Door Openings

One of the biggest benefits of an interior folding door system is saving space in small corridors. They are ideal when traffic needs to move in both directions and the hallway is only 6-8 feet wide. When fully open, these wall systems provide movement through about 85% of the full width of the corridor.

When fully installed, these systems provide a glass-panel wall across a hallway with one or two swinging doors that open and close when needed. The major benefit is that when you need to move equipment, furniture or lots of people, the doors fold completely open to allow maximum ability to move through the space.

The key difference between automatic bifold doors and automatic sliding doors is the ability to save space. Sliding glass doors require several feet of space on each side of the opening in order to slide open. With bifold doors, you only need several inches.
