Meet Metal Accordion Doors

Although you may be primarily familiar with them through commercial use, metal accordion doors are also an option for residences. The same factors that make them invaluable to business owners make them attractive to homeowners. If you’ve never considered them or their use, primarily they’re chosen

  • to change the size of a space
  • close off a space
  • make an area quieter or more secure

These reasons are why metal accordion doors are chosen for both commercial and residential use. There are common reasons to each, like that accordion doors are a space-saving measure. Each space has its own needs and applications, though. For example, another common use of metal accordion doors is as closet doors. Whatever the reason for which you’re considering metal accordion doors, there are enough options out there that you’re likely to find something to fit your requirements.

Metal Methods

The most common metal used in metal accordion doors is aluminum. Aluminum is frequently chosen for house fixtures not only because of its malleable appearance, but also because it’s lightweight. It is still strong, though, as doors are usually made of extruded aluminum, the same kind of material used to make airplanes.

Steel is also often used for metal accordion doors. The kind of steel used for these doors is usually rolled steel, so named because it’s manufactured using rollers to be flat and with a uniform thickness. It’s similar to the way a baker might use a rolling pin to shape dough. Each material, aluminum and steel, can be finished in a few different colors, although aluminum usually has a slightly larger selection.

Dazzling Design

While steel used for metal accordion doors is nearly always produced in flat sheets, you have a few more options with aluminum. You can choose solid aluminum panels if you’re looking for a completely secure and private design. However, this is not the only option with aluminum.

If you would like to let in more light to the area you’re dividing, one choice might be aluminum accordion doors in which acrylic panels are inserted into the aluminum panels. The acrylic panels are transparent, so you still get a view. A similar option is perforated aluminum, in which the aluminum panels are perforated for holes. This is an appropriate choice if you’re closing off a space in which you will still need ventilation, like a room that houses computer equipment.

Adjust the Tracking

Metal accordion doors, like all accordion doors, are installed to run on a track built into the frame of the door space. This is one of the draws of accordion doors, because they don’t take up floor space around the door. That means that there are no bottom tracks that collect dust and create tripping hazards.

Instead, the bottoms of the doors are either free-hanging or run on wheels or rollers. Nylon rollers are typically used, which helps keep the doors opening and closing smoothly and quietly. The deluxe option for rollers is ball-bearing rollers. These rollers are constructed from stainless steel and are made to feature the smoothest slide possible.

Top 3 Shopping TipsMetal Accordion Doors

If you'd like to have a space in your home or business that you can tailor to your needs whenever you want, metal accordion doors just might be the pick for you. Be prepared before you look by finding out what makes a metal accordion door. Likewise, learn about some different styles and whether metal accordion doors are the right choice for you.

1Making It Metal

The two most common metals used for accordion doors are aluminum and steel. Aluminum is lightweight, but strong. Steel is a bit heavier, but still as strong as aluminum. That's why they're often used as security doors. For interior use in your home, though, aluminum is fine. Both are available in a range of colors, although your choices for steel tend to be more limited than with aluminum. You're not going to get the variety of colors that you'd get with vinyl, but you do have some options.

2Seeing Through Walls

As you've probably seen with commercial security doors, metal accordion doors aren't limited to claustrophobia-inducing solid panels. There are doors available with transparent acrylic panels, for example, and doors made with perforated holes.

These doors are great if you want to let light into a room. The ventilated doors are a must for areas that have to circulate air, such as spaces that store computers and related equipment. These kinds of doors are more commonly used in commercial or industrial spaces, but you may have a need for them in your home and you should know your options.

3Sound and No Fury

The main use of accordion doors is to close off a space quickly. Maybe you want to conserve heat or have some privacy. Whatever your reasons, accordion doors can probably fit your needs. However, if you're looking for a door that can block out sound, metal accordion doors are probably not the best choice for you.

While they will dampen some sound, they might also amplify it. (As we all learned from science class, sound bounces off hard surfaces.) So if you need sound control, you're better off opting for vinyl accordion doors or doors specifically made for that purpose.
