Bifold doors are the most popular of all big door systems. They offer numerous panel configurations moving to either the left or right, as well as active single panels for easy entry and exit without opening the entire door. Bifold doors provide the greatest opening width as the panels stack out of the way when fully opened.
These are great systems for smaller openings under 12’ where space is at a premium. They also work really well to make a dramatic statement when used in larger openings of 20’ or greater. Since these units are top hung (where the weight of the panels “hangs” from the head track) they often require a larger header to support the weight of the door.
These doors work best in medium to large remodels and new construction.
