345 Folding Door

With its unobtrusive, contemporary design, the Centor 345 Folding Door is the world’s best folding door. Designed to effortlessly connect homeowners with the world outside, all hardware is concealed to remove visual distractions between inside and out, while Centor-grade engineering ensures panels are able to smoothly glide open as soon as the weather allows.

There are many configurations possible with a Centor 345 Folding Door – including 2 panels or 4 panels in one direction, which now have full key access from the outside. Single panels can be folded back a full 180º to create completely clear openings.

Unlike Centor’s 305 Folding Door, the frame of the Centor 345 Folding Door is similar to a standard folding door frame, with 160mm or 130mm wide sill options available. 

  • Aluminium in a range of standard or custom RAL colours.
  • Engineered to last a lifetime – thermally-improved aluminium is painted after cutting and machining to ensure all surfaces are coated. 
  • Hidden hardware, including Access AutoLatch™, AutoLatch™ and concealed hinge.
  • Double or triple glazing available.

Concealed hinge

The concealed hinge on folding doors is hidden from sight within the edge of the door. Not only does it look great, but it also makes the doors tamper-proof for additional security.
