Aluminum sliding doors and collapsible/accordion doors are common among retail venues, as well as residential or office fitout projects. They include;
- Aluminum framed sliders (standard and hurricane tested)
- Showroom sliders and folding doors (as commonly found at car dealerships, convention centers, and malls)
- Automatic sliders (as used at hospitals, malls, retail outlets, large institutional buildings, and transportation hubs)
Such entrances can be integrated with storefront and curtainwall punched openings, structural butt glazed openings, as well as typical standalone brick and mortar punched openings.
Sliders can be manually or automatically operated (with a variety of configurations for sensors and controls). Additionally, many sliders and folding doors can be glazed with monolithic glazing (as thin as 1/4") and insulated glazing (typically up to a maximum of 1-1/4").
A variety of anodized and painted finish options are also available.
