Tried, tested and true, the Elite Series is one of our most popular products. Dynamic Closures was the first company to create this size of side folding door, and today it’s an industry standard.

Ideal applications include full-height retail space openings, and entrances for public spaces like libraries and community centres. Because it’s such a popular size, it’s also perfect for retrofits and replacements of older doors.

Benefits of the Elite Series Line

Almost Limitless Creative Possibilities

This flexibility of this door allows you to secure spaces with almost any degree of curvature at the entrance. Doors can be almost any width and have heights are available up to 14’ (and even higher with custom doors). Your contractor can build a holding pocket to suit the overall look and feel of the space.

Greater Variety of Materials and Finishes

The Elite Series offers aluminum, polycarbonate, and even tempered glass panels in the curtain.

Available finishes include clear anodized, architectural anodized (bronze or black), and can be powder-coated with any colour in the RAL colour palette. Powder-coating is more eco-friendly than paint, and the results are superior in terms of smoothness and durability.

A Stronger Visual Presence

If you need your door to look a little more “there” than our Slim Line or EZ Grille, this may be a good option (you may also want to consider the Wide Body). While all of these doors are secure, sometimes it’s appropriate to make a stronger visual statement.

Fine Tune Curtain Height for a Sleeker Look or to Hide Construction Errors

The ability to adjust the curtain height within 1 inch allows you to achieve a tailored-looking tightness to the floor, or even forgive minor measurement errors during installation. This has saved a few of our clients from costly and annoying schedule delays.

ADA Compliant Options Available

Let us know if your door needs to be operable by wheelchair users. We have a variety of options that can help make your door more user friendly, including lock heights.

Fire Code Compliant

Emergency egress options including “door within a door” solutions help make your door comply with local fire codes.

Expert Support Helps You Complete Your Design Faster

Our customer support team can help you navigate the options, solve problems and even provide CAD elements for your designs. With over 20 years’ collective experience helping architects find options, provide correct specifications and even provide custom technical installations, you’d be hard to find better support.

Features and Options

Continuous Hinged Construction

Our patented revolutionary hinge design prevents hideous soot that is commonly found with piano hinges after a few months. How do we do it? Instead of the 2-part piano hinge, our hinge is a 2-piece continuous hinge that mates with the panels that form the curtain.

Sorry, this feature is not available with the S126 Brick or S126 Straight models.

Tracks with Custom Curves – Faster than Ever

Your security grille curtain can travel almost any path thanks to our ability to bend and heat treat the tracks in house. The result: you get the curve you need made to the highest quality standards in the industry, delivered within the fastest possible time.

In-stock curves available:

  • 90 Degree 22″, 14″, and 10″ radius
  • 120, 135, 150 Degree 10″ Radius

Colour Options

We have Elite series doors in a clear anodized finish. Black, bronze, light bronze, and champagne anodized finishes are also available, but we need a bit more lead time to deliver these.

Unlimited powder coat colours are also available.

Locking Posts Designed With End Users in Mind

  • A wide variety of locking posts offer flexibility in locking the door.
  • All locking posts can be reversed to suit either right-hand or left-hand grips.
  • Users of any height, even wheelchair users, will have no trouble moving the door thanks to a handle that extends the full height of the post.
  • Flush-mounted hardware eliminates potential snag points and gives a nice, sleek look.
  • Incredibly strong yet easy to service thanks to unique post shape.

Floor and Counter Sockets

  • Dust proof floor sockets prevent dirt accumulation with a spring-loaded cap that closes when the lock is not inserted.
  • Food safe sockets for securing grilles on counters meet health code requirements. Stainless steel construction resists bacterial growth and open bottom allows any food particles to drop out the bottom to a waste bin below.

Emergency Egress Door

Our “door within a door” emergency exit satisfies fire codes by allowing staff to escape from the secured area even when the door is locked. These fire exits are available in different widths to accommodate wheelchair users.

Easy-Change Locking Cylinders

Easily change the 1” mortise cylinder locks provided to work with your internal key system. Ongoing lock updates are just as easy and are a great way to ensure old keys no longer work. Optionally available: SFIC housing and cores.

New 2017 – Optional Maglock

Make keys a thing of the past and easily unlock your door using card readers and keypads. Wall channel posts and Lead posts are now available with Maglock, the electromagnetic lock capable of withstanding 850 lbs of force. Connects to a 12/24 VDC power supply from your existing alarm system.

Materials Options

Depending on the model you choose, you can get materials like aluminum rod and link construction, polycarbonate panels, perforated steel, solid aluminum or tempered glass.
