Folding and Sliding Doors

Folding and sliding industrial doors provide the perfect solution when space inside is limited either for side room or headroom. Folding sliding doors are generally constructed from steel or aluminium sections with optional glazing sections providing light or display of products as in vehicle sales and the like.

Available as a single stack to one side or bi-folding to both sides of larger openings they will provide an excellent solution for either effortless manaul operation or electric operation on larger sizes. Minimal maintenance is also a positive reason for specifying folding doors with very few actual moving parts, even less of course with a one piece sliding doorset.

The Hormann industrial folding doors can be installed in especially large openings measuring up to 14 m width and 7 m height.

Samson Doors can offer 3 to 12 door leaves, in accordance with the operative requirements. This version can be individually adapted to the customer's needs.

Folding and Sliding Door solutions for any application

The FPU and FMI double-skinned folding doors filled with PUR rigid foam or mineral wool are ideal for use in workshops and halls that are heated or require acoustic insulation.
The Hormann FSN door version with numerous infill variations and extensive glazing options are particularly suited for unheated buildings.

They can also be combined with matching FAW aluminium doors. Featuring profiles with thermal breaks and exceptional thermal insulation values make these doors a good choice for showrooms and the like. Every door can be equipped with individual glazing and infill options. An extensive folding door programme is rounded out with wicket doors with and without thresholds and divided traffic leaves.

Industrial folding door with glazed sections

Whether the door is sliding or folding the glazing options are endless with single or double glazed units in sizes ranging from a round port hole to fully glazed sections in extruded aluminium.

Low risk of collision damage

Door leaves parked open on the sides substantially reduce the risk of collisions in a working environement. The leaves are in the field of vision of the lorry driver. Fitting the door with door leaves that open 180° and sufficient space next to the door also result in a maximum drive through passage width and height.

Low-maintenance construction

The Samson industrial folding doors have been designed to have a long service life and operate smoothly. This reliable construction is based on just a few individual hard wearing quality components. As a result requirements for maintenance and care are very low and the doors only entail minor consequential costs over time.

Fire Protection
Samson Doors also offer a range of sliding steel doors specifically for fire and smoke protection. A sliding door can offer many benefits over a roller shutter type fire door system. The Hormann range of fire protection sliding doors is comprehensive with almost any size and colour available and a range of vision glazed panels too.

You can also have a pedestrian door built into the main door which of course provides a fantastic solution to regular pedestrian traffic without even opening the main door

Standard and protection

Safety takes top priority when it comes to Hörmann's industrial folding doors. Finger trap protection devices made of high-quality EPDM multi-chamber profiles are fitted to all vertical closing edges, making the folding industrial door safe from the inside and outside.

Industrial Sliding Doors

Our range of sliding doors offers 4 different models for different purposes with single and double skinned insulated panels.
The doors are manufactured up to 8000mm wide and 5500mm high and all purpose made for maximum use of the opening. The doors can have glazing options in a wide variety of shapes and sizes to maximise the natural light or vision into the building.

Most of the folding or sliding doors we supply and install can be manual or electric operated using a whole range of access controls depending on the building requirements. The manual operation for a folding or sliding door is normally very smooth and not heavy whatever the size may be but automation may be required in many instances for convenience and increased security. Access controls can be utilised to tailor the door operation to various requirements with for example partial opening for pedestrian access only.
