Folding sliding shutters

Inspiring architectural elements

Our aluminium folding sliding shutter is both an aesthetic and space-saving form of sun shading that make it possible to create an innovative facade design and give each building that little extra something. It opens and closes like an accordion without a large opening radius, which means it really does not take up much space at all.

A flexible choice of shutter size means the folding sliding shutter fits in elegantly with every soffit and facade when open. The resistant powder coating also makes this folding sliding shutter weather-proof, corrosion-resistant and therefore virtually maintenance-free.

The folding sliding shutter in countless designs

The large selection of filling elements for the folding sliding shutter caters for everybody’s taste. On the one hand, we offer fixed slats that are firmly anchored on the frames and on the other, movable slats that can be freely adjusted. The closed model also offers a choice between aluminium panels or elements that look like slats. The choice of special fillings for our folding sliding shutter includes expanded metal, real wood and fabric. The folding sliding shutter glides along the rails virtually noise-free over smooth-running rollers with ball bearings and can be opened to its entire width.

Movable slats

Movable slats

The folding sliding shutter with movable slats has at least one slat frame with free-moving slats. Irrespective of this, the other slat frames can be closed with aluminium panels (plain or with grooves running lengthwise or crosswise). Two or more slat frames are separated by a frieze running lengthwise or horizontally. The slats are moved by a visible or concealed control rod.

Closed slats

Closed slats

The closed model only consists of closed fillings that are made of either elements that look like slats or from aluminium panels. The way the surface area is divided up depends on how many slat frames there are. There are also cross and batten or Z bar panels as additional design elements.

5. Colours

Endlessly versatile

The folding sliding shutter is available in a wide range of different colours, such as antique finish and wood decor, as well as matt or silk gloss finishes. The powder-coated surfaces are impact resistant and scratch-resistant, which ensure they remain colourfast for an extremely long time and do not need to be repainted. The special pre-treatment Ocean Line plus is suitable for protecting the product against filiform corrosion in extreme conditions, such as those found by the sea, in swimming pools or in the chemical industry.
