SlimFold: The Original Steel Bifold Door

Pre-finished in Four Timeless Designs
Available in Three Mirror Designs

Innovative Door Designs

SlimFold® is constantly innovating door designs. The furnace doors are perfect for laundry, furnace, or air handler (HVAC) closet doors. These doors are side-hinged full louvered doors constructed with 25 gauge cold rolled steel or A40 galvannealed Steel. Available in standard colors of Bright White, Ivory or Prime for field painting and are easy to install.

Slimfold® offers 3 outstanding and innovative mirror door designs, from sliders to bifolds and the new single panel overlay door. There is a design to fit every decor.

Safety

All mirror panels are 1/8” (3mm) float plate glass mirror with a laminated backing to prevent shattering (4mm on 7’0” heights and taller).

Installation

Installation is easy. With just a few tools and a little time, Slimfold® Bifold or Mirror Doors can transform a room from plain to beautiful. All hardware is included.

Durability

Slimfold® doors are engineered for beauty, quiet operation and long-life. They are carefully manufactured to provide years of maintenance-free use. The electrostatically-applied enamel is standard and galvanized steel is available for areas of high humidity.

Finishes

SlimFold doors are available with a top-of-the-line factory prefinish.  Save time and money with a strong long lasting prefinished frame.  Choose from one of Dunbarton’s many standard colors or select a custom color of your choice. Mirrored Stiles and Rails are available in Bright White, Arctic Silver, Satin Silver, or Satin Chrome depending on your mirror choice.

SlimFold is finished in a state-of-the-art paint conveyor line with electrostatically applied, baked-on enamel.  This ensures complete coverage of the frame with a “best in the industry” paint finish.  No exposed edges of the steel or hardware cutouts compared to our competition.  Dunbarton also offers an option of A40 galvannealed steel that combined with our factory paint system gives maximum rust protection.

The Dunbarton factory-applied paint finish meets or exceeds the 500-hour salt spray test per ASTM–B117-97.  This is four times the requirement of hollow metal frames per SDI (Steel Door Institute) of 125 hours.

Dunbarton Painted finishes also passed a 700-hour humidity test per ASTM–D1735-87.
