Bifold Doors

If you want to be able to view the entire contents of a closet, and don't have enough room for the doors to swing open, bifold doors are a good option. Each door is made of two hinged panels and the top of the doors slide within a track. The mounting hardware is at the top of the door. There is also hardware at the bottom of the door that allows the door to pivot open. Accordian doors completely fold out of the way and are installed in a similar manner to bifold doors.
