Henderson Sliding & Folding Gear

Henderson Logo

PC Henderson have long been acknowledged as the world leader in the design and manufacture of domestic, commercial and industrial sliding, folding and specialist gear components for hundreds of different applications in all types of buildings.
Henderson's sliding gear systems have been developed to enable almost any object to slide in many different combinations. Steel, timber, GRP and glass panels can all be used to create your perfect sliding or folding door system.

Sliding Doors offer many benefits over traditional doors:

  • Attractive, unique door designs can be used

  • Space is conserved in and around the opening area as there is no swing out. Very useful for larger doors

  • Opening width is maximised as the doors can be slid or folded out of the way when open

  • Doors are safe to move, very important for large doors, making them easier to manoeuvre

  • Very few danger zones for entrapment of fingers, etc

The Garage Door Centre is able to provide a consultation service on any aspect of designing a garage door or commercial door system combining other elements other than the actual operating gear itself. Timber panels are amongst the most popular for garage doors but we have produced many steel panels as well.

We can supply the Henderson sliding or folding gear at excellent prices as well as advise on the best gear to use.
