Where lack of space dictates that neither a sliding nor a swing door can be considered, an automatic folding door provides an ideal solution. Its particularly compact construction makes this type of door the complete space-saver which is also perfect for retro-fitting during conversions or renovations.

The compact automatic folding door is supplied pre-finished. The door system is supplied completely prefabricated from special profiles. Aluminium profiles which can neither trap nor crush limbs or people and with integrated lip seals ensure a high level of safety and guard against drafts.


  • Smaller shops.
  • Smaller companies.
  • Filling station convenience stores.
  • Buildings with narrow entrances.
  • Barrier-free construction; can be easily fitted with contact-free switches and programmed with longer opening times.

Additional functions:

  • Air-lock and porch function; two coordinated door systems control access or prevent the movement of air between the interior and exterior.
  • Building automation; integration into existing building management systems.
