We are user of this type of door and we are very satisfied with the product. Its a very smart door, in fact Rolflex managed to re-style the overheaddoor into a new and modern product. We have selected this door together with our architect when we planned a new building. The choice was made because of the very restricted space required, so the SPACE SAVER is really what it is. Beside this aspect we are now very happy with the low noice (or could you say, no noice) of the door when it is running. After more then a year we are still happy with this door and we can recommend it to everybody. We wish Rolflex good luck with their nomination and hopefully they will win the Product of the Year award....

Award Entry

The unique vertical folding Industrial Door provides design freedom and cost effective free space with less maintenance 

The Compact Door has been designed to incorporate the advantages of both Roller Shutter and Overhead Sectional Doors and to overcome their inherent disadvantages.

What makes the Compact door different from all other Industrial doors is its unique patented rail system. On opening the door panels fold upwards into a compact space above the door similar to a roller shutter. However, unlike a roller shutter the Compact Door panels are insulated and can also be fully glazed. A wicket door can be built into the door panels if required. The smooth and quiet movement of the panels uses little energy this guarantees a longer life cycle and lower maintenance costs.

The Compact door is self supported from its side rail system and does not have intrusive overhead rails and balancing springs required by sectional doors. The main disadvantage of an overhead sectional door is its potential restriction to services, natural daylight and workspace as the door panels take up space in the building on opening.

Architects specifying the Compact Door have the advantage of providing more free space above the door for mechanical and electrical services, lighting, sprinklers and overhead cranes. Horizontal glazing can also be considered below the eaves. Unique safety features and an anti theft device are built into the side rails.

A comprehensive web based design programme is available to the Architect/Designer. Just click on to www.rolflex.com and design your door in just five steps. As you choose from a wide range of alternative finishes, glazing and accessories an image of your door is developed on your screen. By return you will receive a CAD/PDF drawing and specification.

The Compact Door is both quick and easy to install and hence is also an excellent solution for the replacement of old Roller Shutter and Sectional doors. Restricted headroom can be accommodated.

The innovative Compact Door is designed in accordance with European standards and is manufactured by Rolflex Nederland BV to the highest standards in their automated production facility in the Netherlands. A worldwide network of approved and trained dealers is available for installation and maintenance.
