What People Are Asking?



We are working through the design of an outdoor space and would need a bifold door. Would like to discuss options and required engineering / structure for said door. Also, the door is to be installed in a Suncoast Enclosure (articulating powered louver pergola system) - so the key question is - can it be installed so that the "interior" of the door is still considered "outside"? The span we're looking at is approximately 25' x 12' high. I have some drawings I can share and would love to discuss options. Thanks

Good afternoon, I'm working on a project and was hoping you might be able to help with finding an appropriate door. I'm looking to replace an existing exterior overhead door. This door probably needs to be either a telescoping overhead door or a bi-folding exterior door (there is no room for a sliding door) for truck passage, but also it needs to have several egress door panels built into the door itself (in addition to being an insulated and acoustic door). The space it serves is a large performance space, so the overhead function needs to be deployed when they are loading in/out a production, but during the production times that opening is a means of egress for the attendees.
