Bolton Gate were primarily an engineering and fabrication company who specialised in the manufacture of collapsible gates, shutter doors, overhead garage doors and leather partition doors. They became a private company in 1930 and by 1961 they had a workforce of over 300 employees.
Bolton Gate manufactured the ‘Bolton Berry’ – a retractable up and over garage door and the ‘Bolton Georgian’ which was a nine panel Georgian style door also using retractable door gear. Bolton Gate also distributed the ‘Filuma’ sectional overhead door. The Filuma doors originated in Canada and the United States and from the early 1970’s to the late 1980’s were branded as ‘Bolton Filuma’ in the UK. There were two types of Filuma doors available. A translucent fibreglass model which was available in a range of tinted colours and a stipple finish aluminium model.
