Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JohnnyD Great product and well worth the price.
The Impact Plus 36”x80” beveled edge solid core closet bi-fold door is of superior quality. This is a beautiful, solid, bi-fold closet door that will make your room look great. We have it in our bedroom closet to use as a dressing mirror. The door is strong and as a result heavy but it operates very smoothly. Installing is a snap except for the weight. I did it alone but a helper would be advisable. I own 3 other custom bi-fold doors from the same company and I am very happy with them.
These doors are designed for a finished opening with a floor saddle but if you want a standard size and not custom bi-fold door a couple things to keep in mind. The finished width is standard to all bi-fold, 36” doors but the height is not. They include a saddle for the floor, which I do not like. I like the clean look of my floors sweeping into the closet. To accomplish this I had to add a flat, 2x4 header, which added 1.5 inches to my finished opening. That made it a clean tight fit. I was in a hurry to get my new room finished and painted so I made my closet door finished opening of 81”x36” and that is why I had to add the 1.5” header. I wish I didn’t but when you are in a hurry sometimes you pay the price.
The floor needs to move because it is a floating cork floor so they included a bottom jamb hinge, instead of a floor mount hinge. (You need to call the manufacture for this). This hinge transferred some of the weight to the wall and not all on the floor to allow the floor to move in theory.
Custom measurements add about $100 to the price but worth it if need be. The floor saddle is standard on all but you must tell them when ordering if you do not want it on custom orders.
The only problem I had with one of my older doors from this manufacture is the top plastic slide guide went bad. I called them and they sent me a new one for free right away. From now on when my wife and I open the door we don’t just jerk the door open with an indiscriminate pull. Just pull the door open in the same plane that it opens- right or left. Do not jerk it towards your which transfers all the force to the top plastic roller guide and eventually wears it out.
We love these doors, the beveled edge adds a classy look. Note in the photo there are two types of closet doors. The 36” pine door cost about $60 less and do not operate nearly as smoothly but we didn’t want mirrors facing our bed.

I had been tracking mirrored bifold doors for awhile as replacements for some 30 year old damaged doors. These doors fit my price point and from the description were a good solution. I chose to pick them up at the store, not really thinking about how heavy 85 pounds (apiece) is to manage. With the seats folded down they did fit into my Ford Escape, but it was a long 4 mile ride and I was really glad when I backed into the driveway. After thoroughly reading the instructions a couple of times, I proceeded to install them. Apart from their weight, the installation went smoothly and probably took a couple hours. Since I probably don't have a straight wall or opening in the entire house, mid-project adjustments are par-for-the-course. At first I was concerned that, because of their heft, they wouldn't be stable, but these doors work so much smoother than their predecessors and once they've been ratcheted into place, the house will probably fall down before they do. My only cautions are: 1. It's definitely not a one man project; get someone to help you. 2. Don't do it on the hottest day of the year.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Spike Mirrored Closet Door
We had to replace one panel of our mirrored closet doors due to it being cracked. My husband was able to use the existing sliding bars at the bottom of top, and just used the hardware off of the old door and put it on the new. The only thing I saw that I was not happy with was that one of the panels themselves had a small imperfection in the glass itself, but we didn't think it was worth driving an hour to and from the nearest Home Depot to have it replaced.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JJinVirginia Great door but breaks easier than expected
These mirror doors are attractive and functional. My only issue is that the video shows them throwing a baseball and hammering the doors and my painters broke one by hitting it with a paint can. Overall it was cheap and easy to replace so not the end of the world but I would have expected it to hold up a bit better. It is heavy so you will probably need a contractor or couple guys to pick it up and install it.

It took us the whole day to install. The door makes an awful noise everytime I open the door. We have tried everything to ease the noise to no avail. I would have kept my old door. Even though old, it make less noise.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Me 3 foot mirrored bi-fold door (solid core)
Excellent door. Very good looking.
EXTREMELY HEAVY, everything I could do to get it up the stairs
The pivot bracket is inadequate for this heavy of a door so you will not be able to extend the pivot bolt very much.
Door looks great

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sheryl I love this door
I replaced an old white bifold door that was falling apart and jumping out of it's track with this new mirrored door.
This new door has a very heavy, high quality feel and the mirror itself is beautiful. It really opened up our entryway.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed Very disappointed
First the door is extremely heavy and somewhat difficult to install. I am a pretty big guy so trust me when I say this is a very heavy door, especially for a glass door. Second, the actual size of the door is not 80 inches. After going through the trouble of installing the door, it was too short. This is a huge flaw with the design.
