UTS Group is proud to help various commercial and public buildings by providing them the best door installation and the maintenance services. Our automatic door systems have opened an almost unlimited range of various door designs options to Ontarians, and automatic folding doors are one of them.

Folding doors were created for the love of convenience and aesthetics. Automation being the cherry on top, folding doors are the chameleons of doors. These doors fold open instead of swinging or sliding open. This is one of the reasons which make these types of doors ideal as they can be easily used in the areas of limited space or where you need to use the space right beside the door.

what is an automatic folding door?

An automatic folding door functions as a sliding door. Its panels, sometimes called leaves, are folded on one or two sides whenever the door is opened. The folding effect is reminiscent of an accordion.

The components of an automatic folding door system are:

  • Operator
  • Header
  • Panels
  • Rail (optional)
  • Pivot
  • Lock
  • Sensor
  • Motor

different types of automatic folding doors

Automatic folding doors come in many forms and serve several purposes. Any regular folding door could be retrofitted with an automation system. Therefore, the styles vary widely.


Some doors are bi-folded, meaning they are equipped with two panels. Whilst others are multi-folded, containing more than two panels, that fold open the centre of the door.


The panels are usually made with tempered glass. The panel frames, however, come in different materials. The following are most commonly adopted:

  • Wood
  • Aluminum
  • Vinyl
