We are a British manufacturing company that designs, develops and manufactures bi-folding door hardware.

The founder Graham Fawthrop has over 20 years’ experience with external bi folding doors, having been involved with the moveable glass wall specialist Solarlux GMBH for many years. 

Graham was then involved with a UK aluminium systems house who achieved major success with their bi folding door systems.

In 2009 Graham formed Debar to start designing & developing its own bi fold hardware range which would fit numerous chamber systems for companies wishing to add bi-fold doors to their portfolio of products.

In addition, Debar has designed the complete bi- fold door system “Dewall” and this is adopted by many companies under their own brand. In 2015 we was awarded “Best in Show” at Glasbuild Atlanta USA

Debar has continued to develop bi-fold hardware for general supply and bi-fold door system specific hardware for major companies around the globe. Debar currently supply in excess of 200+ companies and currently export to 12 countries.

In 2017 Debar brought manufacturing in-house and currently have the following CNC machines:  5 HAAS VF2SS 4 axis VMC, 2 HAAS Mini mill 3 axis VMC, 3 HURCO 3 axis VMC and 2 HAAS ST10 lathes.
