Feb. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Concertina doors finally have their own home on the web - a site primarily dedicated to this stylish interior feature.

For those who perhaps have not encountered the term before, concertina doors are a general name used, in the UK and Australia particularly, for a type of door that does not open outwards or inwards by way of a hinge but rather folds vertically in one or more places, giving the appearance of a concertina, hence the name.

They are used wherever a lightweight solution is needed to separate two areas of a house or other premises and in particular wherever there is not enough room to install a ‘regular’ door that swings out. In this respect concertina doors can make a room seem much more spacious as the door itself does not fill up valuable space in the room.

They also appear in industrial and commercial settings of course, often on a much larger scale. Here they are often used to close off or subdivide quite large spaces – you have probably seen an aircraft hangar door take the form of a concertina door, where a regular swinging door would of course often not be practical. Also, if you attended a small school you may remember such a door being used to ‘soft-divide’ a single room into two groups of kids in order to provide at least some measure of separation and make the maximum use of a larger room.

Webmaster of the new site, located at http://www.concertinadoors.net, Mark Wyatt says, "We aim to compile all the available information on concertina doors in one place, providing a one-stop shop for anyone researching them or looking to buy them", adding that most websites on the subject are owned by door manufacturers or retailers and cannot necessarily be relied on for an objective view.

Of course, concertina doors are not just of interest to home owners. They also appear in industrial and commercial settings, often on a much larger scale. Here they are often used to close off or subdivide quite large spaces – you have probably seen an aircraft hangar door take the form of a concertina door, where a regular swinging door would of course often not be practical. Also, if you attended a small school you may remember such a door being used to ‘soft-divide’ a single room into two groups of kids in order to provide at least some measure of separation and make the maximum use of a larger room.

The site is small but growing, and it is hoped that it will over time become a major resource on concertina doors, bi-folding doors (http://www.concertinadoors.net/bi-fold-doors), French doors and more besides.

All in all, says Mark Wyatt, concertina doors are a practical solution for subdividing a room or premises and can be a stylish option too.
