Bifold Doors

SI3000

A bifold door is a system of door panels which operate on a track in pairs. The doors slide along a track and then fold against a wall. These doors are often also referred to as folding glass walls or accordion doors. Bifold doors can be used in both interior or exterior applications.

Bifold door systems can be traced back to ancient Pompeii, Italy. These doors provide the same benefits today as they did in Roman times; bringing the outdoors inside. When open, bifold doors provide a large unobstructed opening that can be used to connect outdoor and indoor living spaces, provide ventilation, or provide a large entryway to a space.

Fold to Fold Bifold doorsSolar Innovations, Inc. manufacturers bifold doors with aluminum frames, which will not rot, rust, warp, or require constant finish maintenance. The aluminum is thermally broken, providing excellent insulation. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s bifold doors are manufactured in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania at our LEED Gold Certified manufacturing facility.

Solar Innovations, Inc. uses door hardware that is is of superior quality; stainless steel and aluminum hinges are used on all bifolding doors to ensure a long lifespan, serviceability, and durability. Heavy saltwater frame finishes are also available for applications near the ocean.

Another key feature of a Solar Innovations, Inc. door is the option to utilize a recessed bumper handle that is not available through other bifold door manufacturers. The recessed bumper is clean, smooth, visually appealing, and gets the job done.

Bifold doors have two locking options: traditional flush bolts or a two point lock. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s two point lock was designed in-house by our team of certified engineers. The stainless steel lock provides salt water abrasion resistance, scratch resistance, and physical damages to the lock.

I would go with a 6 foot bifold door set up

So if you want a nice cased opening to match moulding/trim on nearby doors you would need a front wall that has an opening dictated by the stanley hardware kit--6 ft. of door plus 1 1/2 in. say, plus 2in. for jambs and shim, plus 6 in. corner each end[inside door casing needs this].
The front wall plate would be 87 1/2 in. long rough, 88 1/2 in. finish wall legenth.
Inside I would make it 30in. plus 4in. for 4in. exhaust duct, plus 4in for "wiggle room", so 39in. rough, 38in. finish wall legenth.

It only takes 3 -4 hours to install the new door

Why would you spend time on going after the sellers.....spend some "positive" time and learn a new skill....as the first poster said...buy 78 inch doors and trimm them.....I just installed 4 sets of bifold doors...trimmend them and it took me 2 days including everything....cost between 50 - 90$ per door at HD.....I also spend some extra money on the hardware...didn't like the standart hardware from HD...now the doors are moving very nicely.....you will be proud of your work, much better feeling then trying to go fater somebody and filing a claim....good luck

    I have cabinets in my kitchen that are painted.......i want to go oak face frame and doors...............can i pull off the existing face frame, and replace with an oak one......my question is......whats the best way to build the frame......dowels?

    • The face frames may be a beotch to replace; they were built on the cabinet boxes, or glued to them. Just depends on the construction. The best way is to use pocket screws. There is an angled hole (pocket) drilled into th …e fancy machine).

      Otherwise, you just apply the boards individually to the cabinet box and pin the edge that hangs down with a finish nail (not the best method, but it's done on built in shelves everyday).
