Foldable Doors

A Foldable door features two or more panels hinged together at the ends so that, as they slide open, they easily “fold” or stack together and come to rest off to one side. To close, the panels slide from the stack and begin to straighten out again, finishing end to end

Foldable sliding glass doors can add practical and aesthetic benefits to both commercial and residential spaces. On the commercial side, think of a hotel ballroom where a glass-paneled wall is pulled back to create a larger meeting space, or a restaurant that connects an indoor dining area with fresh air and patio seating by stacking the glass panels that separate them to one side.

Glass Foldable doors can be used to elevate a multitude of residential spaces, from countertop servery windows that glide to one side to let you serve drinks to your guests to multi-panel glass door systems that open up an entire wall for access and fresh air. They can also serve as dividers for larger interior rooms, with opaque or translucent glass panels to help create visual privacy.

    A Foldable door is a type of door that has multiple sections, which fold into one side of the frame and do not swing in or out to open and close. These types of door opening options make Foldable door designs appealing for room configurations where there is a large window space but less room for a door to open, such as on a balcony or in patio doors.
  • How Do Foldable Doors Work?
    Foldable doors slide and fold into the side of the door frame. Most doors will use an opening mechanism that opens up a lot of space while only occupying a small area.
  • When Will a Foldable Door Design Work Best?
    Foldable doors are usually quite high traffic, meaning they can withstand a lot of use by many people or the frequent movement of outdoor furniture. This makes them ideal for kitchens and living areas that open up onto a garden or outdoor spaces such as balconies, where you can then enjoy uninterrupted views.
