Making room even in the smallest home

Folding and space-saving doors by Rubner

Sometimes there’s not much space: in passages and small rooms, pantries and angular spaces. In these places a normal hinged door takes up so much space it can get in the way or bump into a nearby wardrobe. Rubner offers two ingenious solutions: space-saving doors and folding doors. Both systems are made to measure and can be individually designed to suit your preferences like any other Rubner door.

The folding trick

Folding doors

Folding doors are the first option for making the most of limited spaces. Essentially they consist of two narrow door leaves installed into a normal wall opening. They are linked by a second set of hinges and <use much less space</strong> than a normal hinged door. Like any other door from Rubner these models are also made to measure at the customer’s request. However there is one limitation: Because of the split running down the centre, certain types of glass panel, borders and reinforcements (additional layers) are not possible.

The advantages
• Saves space by using 2 separate folding leaves
• Guide rail at the top and sturdy fittings make it easy to use
• Can be locked using an integrated locking system
• Made to measure in any type of wood
• Freedom to design the door how you want it

Modesty is a virtue

Space-saving doors

Space-saving doors are the masters of modesty: They open without grabbing space and standing at a right angle to the wall – instead they draw back, thanks to a sophisticated 2-point system of fixing in the frame, so that they need much less space than a traditional door. And they are much more flexible in another way too: Space-saving doors don’t just open in one direction like a “normal” hinged door – they open inwards and outwards. A sensible alternative when every centimetre counts.

The advantages
• Saves space by opening in a reduced radius
• Allows disability-friendly access in small spaces
• Opens inwards and outwards
• Robust, durable fixing technology
• Made to measure in any type of wood
• Freedom to design the door how you want it
