Doors of the F series open with high speeds and are extremely heavy-duty. High-speed folding doors by EFAFLEX which are mainly used for closing whole buildings are one aspect of modern industrial architecture. The surface of the door leaf can be anodised in the colours of the Eloxal table or be powder-coated in all RAL-colours, just as you like it.
High-speed folding door EFA-SFT
Fast and robust
Due to the horizontal folding movement of the high-speed folding doors, the full clearance height is immediately completely free. Doors of the F series open with high speeds and are extremely heavy-duty. They protect against noise and draft air, save energy and convince with good heat and sound insulating properties.
High-speed folding doors by EFAFLEX which are mainly used for closing whole buildings are one aspect of modern industrial architecture. Thanks to the large number of design possibilities, your high-speed folding door can be adjusted to every facade.
The folding door for inside and outside use
The EFA-SFT perfectly combines functionality and esthetics. Due to its modular design, it only requires few repair and maintenance. Especially large doors are equipped with special door stoppers in order to additionally stabilise the middle area of the closed wing.
From outside, everything is facade
As far as the equipment options of the EFA-SFT® are concerned, it is the most diverse high-speed door by EFAFLEX. There are numerous possibilities for adjusting the EFA-SFT optimally to every kind of facade - variable options are wing partition, the layout of the bars and the panels. The surface of the door leaf can be anodised in the colours of the Eloxal table or be powder-coated in all RAL-colours, just as you like it.
Internal qualities matter as well
The EFA-SFT consists of aluminium and steel, a combination which guarantees highest quality standard. The supporting parts of the EFA-SFT are as a standard made of galvanised steel sheet. The door leaf consists of anodised, corrosion-free aluminium and is equipped with single-walled acrylic glass which allows much daylight to enter the building. As option, double-walled thermopane glazing guarantee an excellent heat insulation of the high-speed folding doors.
No more waiting: the EFA-SFT speeds up
Even an EFA-SFT with a width and height of several metres can achieve speeds of up to 2.5 m/s. Inside, this advantage ensures a smooth and efficient workflow. Outside, the enormous speed helps in saving energy during opening and closing.
Power and reliability
Doors of the F series are as a standard equipped with a robust pneumatic drive. This powerful drive has proved many thousand times and was developed until it was perfect. The drive easily performs one million operating cycles and more. If you cannot provide compressed air supply, we can also supply your high-speed folding door with an electric motor.
Closed at the touch of a button - also from a distance
The EFA-SFT can be equipped with a comfortable remote locking. It is operated from the control cabinet or by means of an external key switch. If necessary, the door can be unlocked from inside by means of a lever and be opened manually.

High-speed folding door EFA-SFT THERM
Protection and safety
The combined safety contact edge and light barrier continuously monitor door safety. Should the safety contact edge encounter an obstacle in operation the door wings stop, and immediately return to the open position, with operation reinstated automatically on a timed close delay. To optimise safety the light barriers are integrated into the side frames, offset from the door closing line, with variable fitting heights to suit your operation.
As an additional safety option, a light curtain can be mounted to the vertical frame which monitors the area in front of the closing line up to a height of 1,755 mm. The light curtain prevents the door system operating when an obstacle is detected in the opening.
Now even better
The introduction of this new door type sees a fundamental new development, with the door leaf now consisting of a thermally separated steel profile frame combined with 40mm thick EFA-THERM laths. Given to the configuration of materials used a whole new standard in thermal performance for folding doors has been achieved, fulfilling even the highest requirements perhaps for new build or refurbishment, where the aim is to deliver energy savings. Perhaps your wish for more natural light in which case triple glazing is available, thanks to the unique framing profile the infills are quickly and easily replaced.
