Findoor Folding Door
Folding doors to meet any application
Withstands weather and wear
Findoor’s folding doors help prevent the transmission of heat throughout the year bringing savings in heating and cooling costs, for the weather-stripping tightly seals moisture and outside air away from the interior.
The male and female design weather-stripping between panels as well as the door edging weather-stripping squeeze tightly against the critical surfaces when the door is closed, and immediately separate from each other when the door is opened. The final result is a weathertight, heat transmission-blocking door with weather-stripping that is good for many years. The folding doors furnished with windows are also very weathertight. In the fully glazed doors, much of the surface is glass, making it somewhat less thermally efficient.
Unique door with no maintenance worries
Every single door is fabricated at our own factory to fit exactly the specifications from each customer. This means that you will get precisely the door you want with respect to dimensions and appearance.
A minimal number of moving parts means maximally worry free and operationally reliable door. After its installation, the folding door will easily last the next 20 – 30 years with just a bit of maintenance. If you do anticipate having maintenance needs more frequently, you can sign onto our Findoor Carefree Contract, whereby you will outsource the maintenance to us.

The folding doors can be equipped with wireless remote control mechanisms. One remote control device can open or shut up to four doors simultaneously. The doors can also be fitted with electric eyes, or the doors can be opened simply by having a pushbutton switch mounted to the wall.
You could also get folding doors with windows in the panels or with panels completely glazed. The windows are made from double paned thermal glass units, which retains clarity for tens of years. The fully glazed folding doors are manufactured by framing the glass units with aluminum, 2” in thickness. These panels are then joined together with exactly the same parts as the normal folding doors are. The fully glazed folding doors are a splendid choice at, for example, car dealerships and fire stations, where the doors must be stylish and create no obstruction for the visibility of the interior spaces.

What kind of worker lifting devices must I order for the installers?
If the door opening is more than 10 ft high, we will need an electric powered worker lifting device for the installation day.
The best lifting platforms:
- For an inward opening folding door: a battery-powered scissor-lift platform
- For an outward opening folding door: a trailer mounted articulating or telescoping boom platform lift
- If the folding door will have chain drawing opener/closers, then we will need two separate worker lifts
Lifting device requirements:
- One installer will be able to work at the elevation of the upper door jamb
- The installer can control the lifting device from his elevated work station
- The lifting device is able to carry one installer and his tools
What kind of guarantee does the door come with?
Our doors come with a two-year guarantee regardless of the delivery and instalment arrangement. The guarantee can be extended with a service contract.
Will the folding door make the usable door opening narrower?
The folding door is installed against the interior or exterior plane of the wall, and, when it is opened, the leaves fold into spaces located behind the door jambs. Therefore it will not narrow the door opening.
