Bifold doors refer to doors which conveniently fold when they are opened instead of just sticking out.

These panels are divided and designed to stack up against the wall to provide more space and an obstacle free pathway. These doors are extremely flexible and can be opened both ways. The first door panel opens and folds against the adjacent panel. The door next to it can be opened freely like a normal door or can be folded as well.
