Our Story

Folding Sliding Doors Limited was started in 2001 when Paul Shearman, a joiner and engineer working in the folding sliding door industry in Germany, developed an inline folding sliding door system for the British market. The main improvement over previous attempts was in the hardware. He used flush hinges, slim handles and a running track on the top and bottom of the opening for even weight distribution of the opening panels.
The appeal of this product is that the door leaves fold neatly to create a wide opening – perfect for cafes in summertime or rooms in the home that face the garden, to give just two examples.
The company continued to improve the product. The Folding Sliding Door Company were the first to develop an inline PVC-U folding sliding door system with no face fixed hardware and concealed running gear in 2003. Which has since been copied by many companies. The development was an advance on the cumbersome hardware that was in use and the use of top and bottom running tracks meant smooth operation and the support to allow taller and wider openings. Flush tracks are standard, complying with Part M disability access regulations, and the absence of faced fixed hinges makes the installation more secure.
Within two years The Folding Sliding Door Company had acquired premises and was employing 16 staff to manufacture the product, which used VEKA Matrix PVC-U window and door profile. Turnover had reached £1 million by 2003.
In 2007 the company won "The Business of the Year" award. First of 150,000 businesses that were nominated, at the House of Commons. The award was given to the company based on it success in such a short space of time, innovation and the companies business ethics.
Today, the company makes folding sliding doors in aluminium, timber, ali-clad timber and a range of PVC-U systems. In addition, Folding Sliding Doors manufactures its own range of hardware which it supplies to some major household named retail and trade companies.
The popularity of these glazed doors has soared during the company’s time in business as property owners have realised the potential of wider openings in commercial buildings and homes. This type of product, often supplied by The Folding Sliding Door Company, has featured on many TV home improvement programmes.
The product commands a high value. Consequently other window companies have been keen to add it to their portfolio. A recent trend has seen several window systems companies develop their own system in an effort to grab a share of this market for themselves.
