The space-saving overhead door

Are you considering buying an overhead door? An overhead door or sectional door is the most widely used door solution in business today. Rolflex offers you a new type of overhead door, which is unique on the market and very suitable if you are looking for a space-saving as well as an attractive door solution.

Do you opt for standard overhead doors…

Many providers offer standard overhead door solutions. The advantage of these is that they are inexpensive and readily available. However, they are not always suitable for all situations and everyone’s needs. The main disadvantage of overhead doors lies in the mounting construction. This is because the ceiling rails and associated construction of a standard overhead door can get in the way quite a bit with crane tracks, a sloping roof or when there are pipes or installations around the door. These rails are not only inconvenient, but can also seriously disfigure a room. Rolflex therefore developed the Compact overhead door 25 years ago. A unique folding door that eliminates the disadvantages of overhead doors.

…Or do you choose Compact folding doors?

The space-saving folding system makes the Compact folding door versatile, both in industrial and commercial premises. In both new buildings and renovations. Few structural modifications are required thanks to the cantilevered design. You have an extensive choice of options, both in design and operation. For example, an Compact folding door with wicket door, a door made of glass or with a high-speed motor.

No overhead rails, more space 

The folding system requires no overhead rails. Ideal when you have a crane track, installations or equipment behind the door. The durable materials used ensure a long lifespan in any industrial environment. Moreover, this folding door is low maintenance as it has no balancing springs.

A nice finish

Since the panels can neatly conceal above the door, this sectional door can also serve in commercial spaces like showrooms or stores. People have even utilized them in museums and classrooms as room dividers. The invisible hinges and the numerous design options ensure a nice finish that blends in with the building.

What does an overhead door cost?

Want to know overhead door prices? Since every door is custom-made, it is difficult to estimate an exact price. The size of your door is decisive, but also the type of panels, the controls and any accessories. To give you an indication, there is the Compact door configurator. This allows you to put together a door with just a few clicks and have a price indication in your inbox on the same day (no login, no obligations). Try it out without any obligation.
