All Compact folding doors are operated by electronic motors. The type or strength of the motor is defined by the weight and the dimensions of the door blade and the circumstances in which the door is used. What kind of power supply is avalaible? Do you need a high opening speed? How frequently should the door be opened and closed?

Compact motors have a distinctive orange colour.
