Bifolding Doors & French Doors - Best Door For Home Improvement

When buying bifolding doors you might be faced with various different options to choose from. If you not sure about the components and properties of doors then finding the right type of door could prove to be a challenging task. Few of the important features of the doors are mentioned below.

Bifolding Door Frames

When selecting a frame always take into consideration three important aspects, for instance, appearance, location and budget. The cheapest frames are the uPVC door frames while the moat costly frames are those made of woods. While considering appearance you need to remember few things, for example, uPVC door frames are not available in a wide range of finishes while aluminium and wooden bifolding door frames on the other hand are obtainable in an extensive range of colors. Moreover if you prefer contemporary look then aluminium and uPVC are the best choice for you while wooden doors tend to have a more natural and traditional look.

Finally, when thinking of location you require determining where you will be fixing the door frame. For instance, wooden frames are ideal for doors which are sheltered from extreme weather conditions as wood is not a highly durable material.

Bifolding Door Glass

Doors are made of different types of glasses, such as, double glazing, which tend to be the regular glass for these types of doors, tempered glass doors are known for their strong and additional safety properties, low-e glass comes with a heat reflective coating and lastly the laminated glass, which is made up of double sheets with a plastic layer in between and tend to be highly secured and safe.

Although bifold doors come in different designs, the method of installation is the same. It's a good idea to read the instructions that came with the bifold doors before you begin. Generally the doors are 80 inches tall but can be cut down to fit. The height of the door opening should be two inches higher the length of the doors to allow enough clearance for the track and the rest of the hardware.

Start by marking the top of the opening with a pencil and line up the track. Mark and pre drill screw holes. (Use a drill bit that is smaller then the screw itself ).

Position the pivot brackets (inside the header track ) 3/8 inch away from the end of the opening.

Line up the pivot bracket with the header track. (You can use a plumb bob or lay a carpenters level against the side frame and make a mark at the floor and align the bottom track. I always take the measurements of where the top track will line up and transfer that measurement to the bottom where the pivot bracket will be installed).

If the floor is covered with carpet, you will need to use a wooden pad underneath the bottom pivot bracket. Cut away the carpet just enough to fit the wooden pad and fasten it down to the floor.

If it's a cement floor, use adhesive especially made for gluing to cement. Let the adhesive set for 24 hours, line up the pivot bracket with the top track and fasten it to the wooden pad.

Once all the brackets are lined up with each other and in place, you can hang the bifold doors by simply folding the doors in half and fitting the guide pin in the upper track. Next, lift up the door and fit the adjustable pivot into the pivot bracket at the bottom of the door opening.

Repeat the last steps for closets with four panels.

Install the doorknobs at a height where it is most comfortable to reach. Don't install the doorknobs too close to the edges.

If the opening requires four section bifold doors, you will need to install alignment brackets on the back side of the two middle doors. (Approximately 16 inches from the bottom of the doors). These brackets will interlock and keep the doors aligned with each other.

I hope this rough guide will help you understand how to hang bifold doors.
