Folding Sliding shutters

Instead of rolling up vertically like traditional roller shutters do, FlexiGlide folding shutters fold away horizontally. They can stack to one side or, in case of a bi-parting shutter, to two sides.

One of the main advantages of folding shutters is that they stack away to the side. Typically they fold into a custom-built box with a door. And because they need only a 44mm high top track the opening they secure stays completely clear. Most people don't even notice a folding shutter is there when it's open.

Folding shutter advantages

Folding shutters have several advantages over traditional roller shutters. For example:

  • Folding shutters can secure curved openings;
  • Got an S bend, Flexiglide shutters are the answer;
  • They work without a motor so no need for electrics;
  • They span unlimited widths;
  • Folding shutters are lightweight.

Styles of folding shutters

We supply 6 styles or models of folding shutters. So there is a FlexiGlide for almost every situation.

  1. The Classic Chainlink is the most economical and light-weight of our folding shutter range. It's a versatile shutter that works well on low-security applications, such as restaurants, countertops and shops in secured shopping centres.
  2. The Barrier is a multi-purpose folding shutter. It comes in a variety of attractive patterns and offers better security than the Classic Chainlink.
  3. The Vision Guard is a tough, open style security shutter. It has the same elegant lines as the Classic Chainlink, but with an increased level of security.
  4. The Vision Air combines visibility and airflow with a high level of security. The shutter curtain has a pattern of small oblong or round holes that are impossible to reach through, but give the shutter a transparent look.
  5. The Vision Glass is a folding shutter with polycarbonate or glass planels in it's curtain. It's a shutter that combines excellent visibility with a very good level of security.
  6. The Protector is made from solid aluminium panels. It gives the highest level of security and privacy of the FlexiGlide range.
