bi fold doors


Sizing a bi-fold door opening is slightly different than measuring for a standard door. Bi-fold doors require room to fold as they are opened. They also require additional space for the track that the bi-fold door slides on during operation. So to answer your question, no.

Yes you can put bifold doors in a 1 5/8 inch jamb. The doors should be 1 3/8 inch or less thick and the track is not as wide as the doors so you should be good to go.
