Rolflex Nederland BV was formed in 1978. The company specialized 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-leveler 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 company brochures.
