CREATORS OF THE FIRST MODERN BI-FOLD DOOR
Solarlux started with an idea when two ambitious entrepreneurs, Heinz Theo Ebbert and Herbert Holtgreife, created the concept for the world’s first modern bi-folding door system - sketched on a beer mat. Both had worked in the facades and window industry for many years and were looking for a new challenge in the energy saving sector.
Within a couple of years their idea of a folding glass wall for balconies, which created additional living space and acted as a thermal buffer to save energy, became a reality. Moving forward, this idea transcended traditional norms for living by creating a versatile glazing solution for large openings like nothing ever seen before and together with their slender profiles, create smooth transitions between inside and outside.
