Measuring and Fitting:
First, we must advise that if you’re not an experienced DIY enthusiast, you may wish to seek the assistance of a seasoned joiner to help you measure and fit your new folding doors.
And please note: The DIY advice provided on our website is only a guideline for the installation of interior doors. We cannot accept liability for any mishap, injury or damage caused to you, your property or a third party while following this advice.
Our unrivalled experience in fitting folding doors means we can advise on which doors in our product range can be cut, and by how much, in both height and width.
If you’d like more information on the entire measuring and fitting process, visit our Help Section.
When measuring your folding doors, ignore the current door size and follow the advice below. Be aware that in most cases there are locating pins to the top and bottom of most bi-fold doors
Width: Measure each opening between the frame at the top, the middle and the bottom.
Select a door set that fits the widest size. This is because the widest size can be adjusted by you to suit the narrow area of any part of the opening without compromising the stability or affecting the look of the doors - small adjustments to each door edge can help you find just the right size but is not a recommended process for exterior doors.
Height: Measure from the carpet/floor covering to the underside of the timber lintol.
Thickness: Now and only now do you measure the door to find out how thick it is at present. With interior doors you may have to compromise and fit a slightly thinner door. This does not normally present any problems.
