A entrance door has panels that pleat on hinges. The burden of the doorway hangs from a track over and remains vertical with the support of a track below. Possessing the door fold in the center takes up less space than a traditional door when it’s open. Some bifold doors slide into pockets, so they’re concealed when not in use.
Bifold doors are similar to floor-to-ceiling windows — that open.
