Folding Industrial Doors

The Folding F Series – the robust and economical vertical warehouse door option

Not only do we design and install vertically opening industrial doors such as the spiral and fabric roll up, for those installations that require a robust and economical warehouse door solution, we have the Folding Series.

Think of an industrial concertina door and this is similar but our heavy-duty solution, that combines the typical EFAFLEX advantages including energy saving, exceptional aesthetics, noise and draft reduction to provide good heat and sound insulation.

The folding industrial doors are equipped with a robust pneumatic drive (or electric motor when needed) for speedy opening and can effortlessly achieve a million operating cycles. The door wings are connected using a refined cardan joint and can be operated at the click of a button for remote controlled opening.

Their patented modular structure requires minimal maintenance and fitted without the need for floor tracks to reduce the potential trip hazard.

Warehouse Folding Doors For Your Sector

Loading bays, warehouses, emergency services areas such as fire stations, public services including railway stations, and aircraft hangars – these are just some of the areas where our industrial folding high-speed doors have been installed.

Combining aesthetics and functionality, they are ideal for either internal or external locations and are easily tailored to your requirements. With pneumatic or electric motors, the warehouse door wings constructed of high-quality aluminium open effortlessly!

What are the main benefits of an industrial folding door over a warehouse spiral door?

Different industry sectors, applications, and environments require different doors. The EFAFLEX industrial high-speed doors are designed bespoke for the application and customer needs.

Our industrial folding doors are extremely durable and heavy duty, ideal for closing whole buildings and typically used as an exterior door. Our high-speed spiral design can be used as both an exterior door, or used internally within the building envelope.

The key benefits of our industrial concertina door (folding series) include;

  • Exceptional price-performance ratio
  • Low space requirement
  • Fast, robust, economical
  • Open at speeds of up to 2 metres per second
  • Ideal for larger apertures e.g. hangars, emergency services, railway stations

Industrial Folding Door Range

The range includes;

Thermal Folding (EFA-SFT® THERM)

Our latest development uses all of standard folding door technology whilst incorporating additional thermal benefits too! Featuring our unique 40mm thick EFA-THERM® laths, they are capable of achieving a heat transfer coefficient of 0.84 W/ m²K. There’s even an option to include insulated transparent glazing to your warehouse door optimise both natural light and improve user safety. Capable of up to 150,000 cycles per year and speeds of up to 1.4 metres per second.

Unique, innovative safety features

As you’d expect, not only are our high-speed industrial doors designed bespoke to your application, so too is the method with which you choose to open them.

Some opt for a remote-control mechanism which can trigger the warehouse door to open on approach from the comfort of a forklift truck cab. Others prefer a more automated systems such as our laser scanner (EFA-SCAN®), which was the first of its kind to be incorporated into factory door systems. Those that operate within hygiene or cleanroom environments, then our latest ‘wave’ device is ideal. Simply wave you hand in front of the mechanism for a touch free, hygienic opening.

How EFAFLEX completes a tailored industrial door solution for your warehouse

The typical project starts with a comprehensive, complimentary site survey which is completed by one of our trained team. During this meeting we take time to understand your bespoke factory door needs before making our recommendations. We may use our App to create a realistic bespoke visual that demonstrates some options to show the various configurations and industrial door operating speeds.

Once we have completed a thorough site survey, a comprehensive quote is prepared. Once the order is confirmed, it is processed at our factory to include any special requests such as paint finish, door laths and door activation method. The engineering and warehouse door installation team then take over to arrange the install, and ultimate hand over.

The entire process is supervised by your EFAFLEX account manager – from initial enquiry through to eventual completion for seamless continuity.
