'Compact' Sectional Doors

 Compact Door - Space Saving The electrically operated 'Compact' door provides the architect and industrial door user with the features and benefits of both sectional overhead doors and rolling shutters.

Each 'Compact' door is fabricated to suit its application.

Space saving

The unique patented folding mechanism stacks the insulated panels above the door opening. Light fittings, roof glazing and overhead cranes are not obstructed.

Architectural saving

The 'Compact' door requires a minimum level of steel supports unlike a traditional overhead door.

Operational advantages

The unique and patented guiding system minimises the force on the moving parts. There are no counter-balancing springs or weights which may require future adjustment or regular maintenance.
