Capable of opening and closing any type of door irrespective of size and weight, we offer both pneumatic and hydraulic operating systems which can be operated by any kind of automation from simple buttons to complex computer systems.

Below is an overview of our standard models, all of which can be adapted to suit any purpose imaginable.

Explore Our Range Of Folding Door Mechanisms

Our folding door mechanisms come in two basic models which can be tailored to suit your specific needs.
This gives us maximum flexibility to apply our mechanism to any kind of door.


RT60 Folding Door Mechanism

RT60 was designed in 1980 to provide automation for folding doors up to 1000kgs.

Centrally guided with upper track and adjustable A655 hinges, the design is particularly suitable for applications with railway lines traversing the aperture.

Coupled with a suitable door design the RT60 is used with overhead power (catenary) lines.

RT68 Folding Door Mechanism

RT68 is a development of our RT60 model but specifically for security doors without availability to slide.

Centrally guided with upper track and adjustable A655 hinges, the design features a lower rail across the aperture with a double wheel bogie.
