The Folding Sliding Door Company was founded by owner Paul Shearman, whose apprenticeship as a joiner and engineer in the German door industry was important in defining the future philosophy of his business.

The company developed its first doors in timber before manufacturing the UK’s first PVC-U in-line bi-folding door in 2003 with an innovative design with no face-fixed hardware and a concealed running gear.

“It sounds so mainstream now but we were the first bi-fold manufacturer to develop a PVC-U system with concealed running gear”, says their Managing Director, Kehinde Jolaoso.

Soon after, the company designed, developed and branded a Fold ‘N’ Slide Hardware offering, a dedicated universal hardware system that was compatible with all materials. The Part Q accredited system features easily adjustable rollers, security hardware and flush threshold options.

Hugely versatile, Fold ‘N’ Slide hardware is suitable for use across all leading PVC-U and aluminium systems plus timber and timber/aluminium and aluminium/PVC-U composites.

 

Partnership

A focus on detail has driven ExtrudaSeal’s partnership with The Folding Sliding Door Company. As a specialist manufacturer, we have extruded more than 20,000 km of gaskets in the last year, tapping into economies of scale to offer customers average savings of 30-40% on gasket costs compared to buying-in from systems companies.

“Price is an important part of it but we don’t buy from ExtrudaSeal just because of price – it’s about service, support and relationships”, says Kehinde.

We use ExtrudaSeal push-in and wedge gaskets across our systems. They’re also universal. Plus weatherseals on panels.

“Where we have really seen value is in their R&D process. They have their own teams in-house, who we’ve worked with to develop and refine solutions and they have always been very responsive.”

 

Variety

The Extrudaseal gasket range is available in more than 1000 RAL colours including RAL 9007 metallic silver gasket, which has been designed to provide a match to contemporary silver powder coated installations for The Folding Sliding Door Company.

“What you get with ExtrudaSeal is that same focus that we have brought to bi-fold door manufacture, and in our experience that leads to products which are more technologically advanced.”
