Folding Doors

The Bi-Fold Door is a simple, elegant solution for indoor/outdoor living because it opens wide to invite fresh air in. Configured from two to eight panels, Bi-Fold Doors use a unique operating system that allows the door to fold smoothly to one side, stylishly and effortlessly connecting your space to the outdoors or to another room.

Bullet Proof Doors

The bullet-proof Teckentrup steel door prevents bullets from travelling through it. Its application areas include, e.g., safe rooms in airports and train stations, police stations, banks, court buildings, police cells in large arenas, but also private buildings which demand a high-level of security.

Revolving Doors

Revolving doors are made to rotate counter-clockwise with traffic entering on the right side and then stepping between two "wings" of the door that rotate constantly with a motor or manually through pushing. The doors are constructed with flaps that create a light seal against the frame of the door so two of the wings are always in contact. This means the door is always open and always closed at the same time.Revolving doors handle high traffic and some have safety features that allow the wings to collapse and make an open door for quick exit.

Steel Doors

Hollow metal doors are made from sheets that are steel wrapped around some form of core. Though they are referred to as "hollow," they actually contain either foam insulation, steel stiffeners or a resinous honeycombed core. These doors are the standard material for most exterior commercial doors. They offer a high level of security and are long-lasting and cost effective. Steel doors may be used on the interior of a building in mechanical rooms or other heavy-duty applications.

Wood Doors

Wood is considered the go-to choice for high-end projects; its luxe look and substantial weight can’t be flawlessly duplicated by fiberglass or steel — though high-end fiberglass products are getting close. If your home calls for a stunning entry statement with a handcrafted touch, wood may be the best material for you.

Sound Proof Insulated Doors

Soundproofing in buildings is extremely important for the health and well-being of humans. Noise at the workplace not only negatively influences the -working atmosphere- but also considerably reduces the ability to concentrate and receive information. Teckentrup sound insulated doors made of steel provide optimum protection against high level noises. The sound insulated doors provide a pleasant working atmosphere, reduce noise pollution, increase efficiency and ensure maximum health benefits. Due to the special design of the door leaf, very compact insulation material and special seals, the doors achieve optimum insulation. 

Multi-Purpose Door

Energy losses usually occur with doors with varying ambient temperatures, especially outer doors. The double-skinned, heat insulated steel doors provide effective protection. A clever design and first-class material and workmanship ensure perfect heat insulation and particularly robust and secure doors.  Heat insulated multi-purpose doors made of steel, with multi-functional protection, can be used in almost all industrial, commercial, public, agricultural and domestic areas. 

Fiber Glass Doors

Fiberglass doors are some of the most durable and long-lasting options for commercial openings. They require little to no maintenance and will generally outlast steel and wood doors, especially on high abuse applications. Many school districts use fiberglass doors to reduce replacement and maintenance costs in the long-term. Fiberglass units are often more costly than other materials.​

Aluminum & Glass Doors

Doors made from aluminum and glass are frequently used at entrance ways in commercial structures. They are chosen primarily for the clean, sleek look of the aluminum, but also because they allow natural light to shine into the building. These doors are fairly low-maintenance because they do not require painting or staining like metal or wood. While other commercial doors are installed in steel frames, these doors are installed in aluminum frames, which have a slightly different profile than other units. Aluminum assemblies can usually only be fire-rated up to one hour, which may not meet some building codes.

Overhead Doors

Overhead doors are made from sheets of steel. They are used at loading docks and manufacturing facilities to allow large objects to be brought into the building. These doors are often 8 to 10 ft. wide, and can be built to any height. Overhead doors coil up towards the ceiling like a garage door, and may be manually or automatically operated.

Automatic Doors

Automatic glass doors use optical or motion detection sensors to activate their motorized opening and closing functions. These sensors are mounted over the automatic door or are integrated into the door framing from above or the side. The sensors use either infrared or microwave technology to observe motion and are often used in commercial and industrial settings to allow ease of access for both able-bodied and disabled persons, for efficiency and safety.
