Bifold door advice

Postby nevans1271 » Fri Jan 04, 2008 10:43 am

Hi guys,

First post so need some help - I've hung 2 sets od bifold doors in a roughly 6' opening which I had to build the lining out to suit the fit of the doors - only having ever hung one set of these doors before, i am unsure of the latches to fit and where they should be fitted. The person I'm doing it for wants latches that are hidden that have a finger pull latch - the doors currently open from each side folding into the room - any pictures of examples would be good.

usually with bi-fold doors you do not fit latches as the track has a spring wich holds the door in place,the handles are usually recessed into the door.
