Series 440: Security Accordion Doors
A new concept in better security is now in sight: Woodfold’s Visifold Series 440 see-through commercial and retail security doors. Custom-crafted of heavy-duty acrylic panels and our exclusive steel hardware hinge system, this Series helps reduce annoying noise and dust while providing a welcome sense of openness.
