If you're replacing old, cheap bi-folds, this is a step up. The larger louvers look good, and this set arrived in perfect condition, fresh. My only criticism is that the louvers are a bit thin so they have some serious flex when you push on them. So, for a very light application, they'll probably work. If you're putting them in a place where they'll get heavy use, you might look for something heavier duty -- a 1-3/8" door. These are listed as 2" thick. That must include the knob because the doors themselves are only 1" thick.
Beautiful Appearance, Great Value, Functional, Fits in Various Rooms, Well Made, Easy to Clean, Good Size & Fit
not for heavy use, flimsy louvers
I like the idea of the stiffness of steel and the finish/maintenance of vinyl. Plus, 3 inch louvers is what I needed. The downside: I had to significantly modify my door to make it work. First, the spring and it's clip for the track was too long. I had to cut both. Most importantly, the inserts that hold the pivot pins were simply PRESSED into the stiles: so, when the even shortened spring pushed on the door when closed the inserts worked their way out because of the force. Maybe they forgot the glue. So I used PVC pipe primer and adhesive to glue them in - we'll see. Also, the bushings for the pins broke the first time I put them in. So, overall lots of problems for me: I'd think the average homeowner would send something like this back. If anyone monitors these posts, tell me how to get replacement bushings for the pivot pins.
The description said it would fit my opening, but when I received them, they would not fit and I could not get them cut down 1/2 inch so they would fit. It is too bad you don't have this service in your stores. I had to return them. I would have replaced all my closet doors with bifold doors.

Initially I thought these were nice doors. Later, upon closer inspection, I realized they weren't. Some of the slats that make up the louver portion are significantly warped. When I went to take the hinges off so I could paint them, some of the screw heads were stripped out, which made them very difficult to get out. I actually had to drill the head out of one of the screws to get the hinge off and then take vise grips to get the rest of the screw out. I called the company, which said they would send out some more screws to replace the stripped out ones.The ones I received were from a different hinge color. I should have got my money back, but they were about the only ones that had the size I needed.

I ordered this door at hdsupplysolutions.com. It arrived quickly but when I took it out of the packaging, the two panels came apart. The door was missing the hinges. It was also missing the holes that the mounting hardware goes in. So I had to sorta finish manufacturing it. I had hinges I had saved from another door and I drilled the holes to put the hardware in. Also the door knob is white in the picture. Mine was natural unfinished wood. Other than this it was more or less ok. Louvers wobbled in place a little but I was not going to complain about this had the hinges been there.
