1. Policy Statement
It is the policy of Rolflex to operate a quality system to ensure that the
supply of the Compact Door to its customers conforms with their requirements and
The company has developed it’s own in-house procedures.
All functions are computer generated from the receipt of order to the selection
of components for manufacture and checked ready for dispatch.
The company has a
culture of safe working both in the factory and for the installation of its
products on site.
This policy is implemented throughout the company for all its
activities. All employees are responsible for the quality of their own work and
encouraged to achieve high standards and meet the delivery programmes of their
clients and profit targets of the company.
The Chief Executive is ultimately responsible for the implementation of the
policy with day to day running delegated to the commercial and production
managers. It is the policy of the company to continue the development of its
products, management systems and manufacturing techniques.
Rolflex fabricates the majority of the door components in its own factory with
the exception of the motors, control boxes and other electrical accessories.
2. Company History
Rolflex Nederland BV was formed in 1978. The company
specialised in the assembly and installation of roller shutter doors, sectional
doors, dock shelters and loading bay systems. In the late 80’s it was decided to
develop individual products for its own account. Firstly a pneumatic
dock-leveller was patented and distributed worldwide.
In the 90’s work began on
the Compact Door and a patent received for its unique folding mechanism. The
Compact Door folds directly above the door opening and does not obstruct
overhead services, gantries and natural daylight. The Compact Door is self
supported off its side tracks, it is quiet to operate and requires less long
term maintenance. The conventional sectional door when opened takes up a lot of
space in the building and requires secondary steel to support the panels and
springs to effect movement.
Rolflex sell the Compact door through a worldwide
network of approved dealers. All dealers are offered in-house training and
encouraged to visit the factory in Holland. In 2007/2008 the company extended
its existing manufacturing facilities and built new offices to provide extra
accommodation for administration and a training suite for clients and dealers.
The Compact Door is now a popular choice of many leading architects and
designers seeking to specify a well engineered modern product which can provide
them and their clients with more design freedom and cost effective space within
the building. A reference list of major projects is included in section 5 with
3. General Procedures
Clients are encouraged to
visit www.rolflex.com and click on “Design your own door”. This is a new feature
which enables architects, end users, dealers and new visitors to design their
own doors by following five simple steps. As the visitor selects their
specification requirements a graphic image of the door complete with drawings
and specification is built up on the screen. By return a quotation to the
relevant dealer will follow automatically.
When a dealer places an order with
Rolflex he is sent a confirmation form to check, sign and return. No orders are
cleared into production for manufacture until this procedure is complete. A
delivery date is also confirmed.

documentation for the installer together with the logbook and user-manual for
maintenance and operation are boxed within the package.
dealers are encouraged to send their installers to Holland for training and an
installation video is also available. With trained operatives the installation
of the Compact Door is much quicker than a conventional sectional door. To view

All Operations in the factory and the material stock
warehouse are computer generated to ensure that our doors are produced to the

the computer programm with this serial number.
Before the door can be released
for packing and dispatch all components of the door are barcode scanned to check
that it’s specification matches the order confirmation. Each production step is
registered and recorded, time, date and the operative. On dispatch the serial
number of the door is located on the control box and the red log book which also
contains the specification of the door and the user manual.
