folding doors at a high school

Commercial Folding Doors for a High School

We received a request for commercial folding doors for a high school from our Kansas dealer, WestPro Construction. Our engineers worked with the dealer and the architect to find a custom solution for this unique space.

Through collaboration on this project, ActivWall designed a six-panel, floor-mounted, bi-folding unit, next to 3 fixed panels, with an operable door. The units measure 182″ and 152″ wide by 118″ high. 

The concrete slab floor was not thick enough to support an ActivWall structural sill, so a low-profile sill was used for the floor track. 

The dark bronze finish matches the rest of the modern aesthetic of the space. These horizontal folding doors allow students to have a unique space to hang out. Also, the writing center is able to have a quiet area to tutor students while not feeling closed off from the rest of the high school.
