What’s a FinDoor?

A FinDoor is a folding door comprising three to six panels that open and close horizontally. It’s outfitted with door handles and, thanks to its lightweight construction, it can be open and closed by hand. Depending on the user’s preference, it can also be electrically operated and include a pushbutton switch and wireless remote controls.

Here are some of the main features of its construction:

Materials
The FinDoor is made of steel and has thermally insulating and water-resistant material at its core. It’s outfitted with steel hinges that lift the door off the ground.

Weather-stripping
The weather-stripping is made of EPDM rubber designed to withstand extreme conditions. It tightly adheres to the critical areas when the door is closed, resulting in a weathertight seal that keeps out air and moisture and prevents heat transmission.

Windows
The FinDoor can include windows, or alternatively the panels can be entirely glazed, providing total visibility. The windows are made of double-paned thermal glass that remains clear.

Customization
Every door is manufactured according to the customer’s specifications. The door can be customized in terms of its dimensions, number of panels, colour, and window options. Moreover, it can be made to open and close manually, or both manually and electronically.

What Are The Advantages Of A Findoor?

If you’re looking for a folding door for your business, farm, or facility, consider whether a FinDoor is right for you. Here are some of its principle attributes:

Durable and easy to maintain
The FinDoor is industrial-grade and can handle heavy everyday usage. This makes it a popular option for farms and industrial settings, where doors take a beating from vehicles, livestock and the elements. It will easily last 20 to 30 years.

Furthermore, the door requires minimal maintenance thanks to its small number of moving parts and reliable operation. The user simply needs to lubricate the hinges periodically. Plus, unlike overhead doors, the FinDoor doesn’t require safety inspections, even when it operates electronically.

Weather- and water-resistant
Thanks to its water-resistant materials and tight-sealing weatherstripping, the FinDoor can handle whatever Mother Nature throws its way, whether its heavy winds, torrential rain or frigid temperatures. Its ability to keep out moisture has made it a popular choice for car washes.

Easy to use
While robust and sturdy, the FinDoor also takes minimum effort to open and close manually because of its self-bearing structure. The hinges lift the bottom edge of the weatherstripping off the floor, which makes for light work for the user. For example, a 16 x 16-foot door can be opened and closed by the average 10-year-old.

Space-saving
In its open position, the FinDoor tucks into a space behind the door jambs and doesn’t encroach into the door opening. And, unlike an overhead door, it doesn’t take up any ceiling space, leaving you more interior clearance and lighting options.

Energy-efficient
Thanks to its insulating core, thermal glass windows, and high-quality weatherstripping, the FinDoor is optimally energy-efficient. By preventing heat and cold transmission, it helps keep the indoor environment at the right temperature and bring down your heating and cooling bill.

Manufactured in Canada
The brand’s products are designed to suit Canadian working environments and withstand Canadian climates.
