Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carlos Great solution.
I need to cover a big opening ( ex window) between my kitchen and a sun room. I bought two of this doors and install both together . I have to trim the door to the size of the window. It is a little bit of work but I watch first in YouTube how to do it.
After two hours of work both doors where trim and installed.
Now I can close it and divide the Sun room from the rest of the house and avoid heat coming inside the house.
It look nice too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by cavelez Good once installed, a bit flimsy and delicate when cutting to size
The door did not come with instructions on how to cut to size, had to search on internet, once all the hardware was removed we cut with a chop saw, the material is very brittle and we were not able to get clean cuts, maybe with a hand saw but we didnt try, also when cutting the individual panels keep sliding up and down and may cause you to end up with uneven panels so be carefull before cutting make sure they are all alligned at the other end. It was a pain to disasemble cut, re assembe and install, lots of holes in the wall but once installed it looks ok (not great). Not sure how long it will hold up thou because as mentioned the plastic the panels are made of is very brittle.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 03windrider Good value, so-so instructions
This product is pretty much as advertised, though it might take a little longer to install than you might expect. Once you've installed one, the instructions make sense, but what they don't ever tell you is how to alter the height of the door for non-standard doorways. This actually isn't too hard, and here's how:
By design, the length of the door makes it clear the floor by 1/2" (it's 1/2" shy of the advertised height once it's hanging from the track). I bought a 96" door and needed to hang it in a 87.5" doorway, and I also wanted it to hang closer to the floor, so I cut 96-87.5-.25=8.25" off the BOTTOM of the door. Keep the door bundled together in its wrapping and banding except for removing the tracks (slide them out) and removing the wrapping in the vicinity of the cut. Use a miter box and a fine-toothed saw (I got one at Home Depot for about $16). Once you've cut cleanly through the door, you need to remove all the little screws (there were about 30 in my 48" wide door) from the cut off end (easier if you keep the ends together on the splines and use a drill-driver with a small phillips bit) and screw them into the bottom of the door (where you made the cut). Make sure the splines and door panels are flush when the screws are re-inserted, and don't over-tighten -- you can split the plastic. Now, just hang the door as instructed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 48 by 96 white folding door
I have a new home and a large arch between kitchen and washroom. We bought the 48 by 96 by fold door. when it came in it was packaged so the door wasn't damaged at all. It was a little to long so we didn' know what to do. We called the number on the paper and the Girl at home Depot told us how to remove the screws and cut the door. We did and i am so happy. The door is very good quality and so glad we purchased it..It looks great in our new home. Bert

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kupuna75 Large accordion doors are GREAT!
The instructions are clear, and the installation videos on the website help. If anything, there could be more detail in how to cut the doors to fit the height. It's not a on-step process. The cut line needs to be marked on the masking tape all around the doors. Then, preliminary cuts should be made on all four sides of the bottom to ensure that the saw blade doesn't wander and you get a clean, even, straight cut.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stiltz Was perfect for my needs!
I needed an accordion door to segregate the unfiinished half of my basement so my toddler could not get through, but my cats could, so I needed something that I could cut a cat door into. This door is designed to be easily cut to the height you require. I was also able to cut an opening for the cats. You have the be VERY careful when cutting because the material will splinter. I had to cut ~18" off the bottom (which was the easy part) to get the correct height, and then I practiced cutting the cat opening on the 18" piece that was to be discarded, so that I would do it right when it mattered! I was initially disappointed that the latch mechanism is just magnets, but they are VERY strong magnets. I only use 2 of the 3 that came with it and it is still sufficient to keep my toddler out. Heck.. even I have to struggle sometimes to open it! This product is very easy to mount and works well. The material is pretty flimsy, but I did a good amount of research before buying and, for the price versus the functionality, this is the best value you will find. It also looks great when installed. Perhaps not the right door for the living room of a million dollar home, but perfect for the average person's closet or basement!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by biesty Did the job
I needed an inexpensive/easy way to separate a room and this fit the bill. The door was 96" tall and I didn't need to trim it but it was only 40" wide. Triming the top track to shorten it for my door was easy though. My biggest issue with this door is this.
The handle is not centered and it's hard to shut the lower part. I think they expect most to cut this down. I'd like to see either a centered handle or 2 handles because it's hard to get it to line up with the magnets in the tracks. I'm glad I didn't cut out the extra panels as well because I fold 2 pannels near the handle like another handle to help align it and shut the door. It's awkward but it works good enough to keep it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IslandShark Nice -Easy -Quick
I received this product in about 4 days and was very thrilled because ordering this from a competitor or through a special orders desk was quoted at 6 weeks. Nicely packaged, easy to follow directions. Fits in very nicely. The only thing I did notice prior to install that I had not read about: the door handle is fits on the left side of the door only, so you will probably want the door to close by pulling it from the right side of the opening to the left. If you do it the other way, the handle will be very low to the floor, although it could be done. I called customer service to see about cutting off 1" from the bottom and they were quick to answer and very pleasant to speak with and helped me out with that as well.
