Overhead door versus Compact door

Overhead doors are closures in which the door blade panels are retracted into an overhead rail system above the available space. The rail systems for this type of door are usually available in various versions (track applications). However, the Compact door can be regarded as an improved version of the overhead door. The great advantage of the Compact door is the unique side rail system which requires no overhead supports. Thanks to a special folding principle, this door can be integrated in a way that saves space. The summary below shows the advantages and disadvantages of various features of the overhead door versus the Compact door.

Rolflex combines the advantages of service doors

Service doors have gained a great deal in popularity with companies and in agriculture. As a door closure system it is a very good option. In terms of specification, there are various types on the market, such as overhead doors, but also sectional doors, roller shutters and industrial doors. With the Compact door from Rolflex all of these advantages are combined in one specification.

Several advantages of the Compact door over the overhead door:

  • A Compact door always fits: there is no need for any overhead supporting structure.
  • Overhead doors are fitted with balance springs, but our doors are not,        because the lifecycle of those components is very limited and maintenance is time consuming.
  • This gives the architect more freedom in his design.
  • The Compact door enables space to be saved.
  • Very low maintenance.
  • More daylight enters the building.
  • An overhead door is not usually suitable in situations in which you want to suspend a heater over the door or install pipework or a skylight in the roof. These special requirements are no problem for Rolflex's door.
