Folding Sliding System image

Folding Sliding System

Modernfold Folding Sliding Walls (FSW) are ideal for a straight-line system configuration. Because the panels of an FSW system are visually compatible with the 100SR-G panels, both system types can use the same track and rail construction and can be effectively combined within a single frontage. Consequently, an FSW system can also be complemented by adding a free-standing 100SR-G double action or single action end panel.

Advantages of the Modernfold Folding Sliding System
  • Ideal solution for banks, shopping malls, galleries and more
  • Provides openness with transparency
  • No floor track
  • Glass designs can be incorporated to provide a tailored look
  • Enhances functionality while filling spaces with light
  • 2-year warranty on all systems

The panels of an FSW-C system have trolleys located in the center of the panel with equal dimensions of panel exposure on both sides of the track center line when stacked. This is an alternative for confined spaces as the stacked panels take up only half the space inside and out.

FSW-G folding sliding walls are fully glazed partitions and frontages, with door rails top and bottom, track roller position at the end of every second panel.
