How to design it

FoldingPack® sliding folding shutter

Design and install a modular FoldingPack® linear or curved sliding shutter for closure off and protecting areas. What you need to know.

 

•    solid
•    standard micro-perforated
•    wall
•    custom micro-perforated - micro-perforation can be designed at precise points and alternate "solid/perforated" sections
•    windowpane
•    chainlink

•    galvanized steel
•    galvanized steel pre-painted in colours: white RAL 9010 – grey RAL 9006
•    aluminium
•    anodized aluminium
•    aluminium pre-painted in white RAL 9010
•    AISI 304 stainless steel
•    powder coating in any RAL colour

•   39x39 mm
•   Visible or recessed

  • The folded shutter takes up approximately 12-14 % of the opening
  • If you have more space available, we recommend setting aside slightly more space for easier installation and maintenance
  • Once we know the measurements and number of curves, we can immediately provide the exact dimensions of the folded shutter; contact us for more information.

  • The sliding “run” is about 220 mm deep.
  • Each shutter slat complete with fastening accessories is approximately 140 mm wide, but about 220 mm must be left to enable the curtain to turn and swing.

  • Any kind of curve can be created in accordance with building regulations.

  • The minimum curve radius is 350 mm.

  • The minimum arc length with any radius is 550 mm

  • A change in radius requires a 100 mm straight section

  • Two opposing curves require a 100 mm straight section and a minimum curve radius in relation to the general shutter layout.

  • Curve development greater than 5,000 mm requires a 100 mm straight section.

  • FoldingPack® does not require a bottom track
  • The shutters are secured to the floor with manual locking pins fastened to the curtain and spaced out at approximately 2,000/2,500 mm intervals.
  • The bolts are fitted with steel pins that lock into sockets (15 mm diameter) depressed into the floor.
  • The stainless steel sockets are topped with dust caps to protect the spring mechanism.

 

  • A compartment can be installed to house and cover the folded shutter.
  • These compartments (in sheet metal, plasterboard or wood) can be fitted with a door that completely conceals the shutter once it is folded away.
  • Measures 220 mm on the inside.

  • The track must be firmly secured to the ceiling.
  • The structure must be able to withstand the weight of a fully folded shutter at any point along its entire length.
  • FoldingPack® shutters weigh between 6 and 10 kilograms per square metre.

  • Vertical support structures may be required depending on requirements
