Bifold Laundry Closet Doors?


I've fixed these stupid doors twice...each. One was perfectly fine while I was fixing and reinstalling the other. After fighting and readjusing, I got the door to slide perfectly, and the good door jammed and blew out of the track. Now, the plastic track pins are broken. I can't find hardware or U-channel for these anywhere.

I want to ultimately bring the wall out about 3 feet and close up the door opening. I want to put in a toilet and laundry sink, and put a regular door on the side of the washer/dryer area. Until I do, I want to replace these doors with something else. It has to be something to deaden the sound of the machines and pinging of the water heater, as this ajoins the home theatre. I don't have enough room for pocket doors and track curtains and panels won't block sound.

I'm lost...

I think it may be difficult for you to block sound... door alone probably won't be able to do it... you may need CIA/Pentagon technology to sound proof the furnance which is 2 feets away from you....

so may be if you take out the blocking sound requirement, you got more options....
