Rolkar - Opening a whole new outlook with bottom rolling bi-fold doors

27th April 2017
Trio of new appointments

Introducing Rolkär - the new name in bottom rolling bi-fold door systems. Available from stock for immediate delivery.

This innovative, bottom rolling, folding door system supports the weight of the doors along the base, removing the need for major structural building support. The result is a bi-fold door system that can be installed into virtually any space. By using advanced roller system technology directly underneath the door, Rolkär frees up design space creating a clean, minimalistic look which is barely visible when the doors are closed.

Key benefits of the Rolkär include:

  • Easy to install system with a smooth operation
  • Fully adjustable both vertically and laterally within the framework, ensuring an accurate fit every time
  • Manufactured from 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel making it extremely weather and corrosion resistant
Perfect for bi-fold applications where top hung structural support is lacking, such as in conservatories, extensions, orangeries and outbuildings, Rolkär creates a host of new sales opportunities.

Trio of new appointments

It’s an exciting time of growth and development here at Coastal as our reputation for combining great customer service with market leading hardware solutions drives new sales and new customers across the UK.

Not only is this reflected in the creation of a brand new warehouse facility at our head offices, which will be opened shortly, but has also seen the Coastal team grow again.

We have made three new appointments to key areas of the business with Neil Jones appointed as Marketing Manager, Kevin Richards in the Customer Services Team and Mike Ives heading up our 'Goods In'.

All three bring a wealth of experience and expertise in their roles and will undoubtedly make a big contribution to Coastal as we enter the next phase of our development.
