Mirror Doors?

Guys can anyone recommend a mirrored bifold door brand?

Im' looking for a sturdy 1 3/8" frameless looking door. The ones at Lws were cheesey and thin according to the customer. I dont think I ever installed mirror bifolds. Sliders yes but not bifolds. Jeld Wen didnt have any good photos to show either on line or in the brochure.

Thanks T

Yea a good glass shop should be able to help. Here on the west coast there is a company called Contractors Wardrobe. They carry basic models on up to higher end. Don't know if they're in NJ.

Re: Mirror Doors?

I put in a Stanley frameless a few years ago... It seemed to be of fair quality.

Not really cheap, but not silky smooth..

Re: Mirror Doors?

Framless from Home Depot, they were custom order and heavy as all hell. They came with an oak 1x3 to span the floor from jam to jam. THis gives a solid mounting surface for the extremely heavy doors.

Basically was just extrememly heavy MDF? With Mirrors glued on one side and the hardware to make it a bifold. Slight bevel around the edge.

Reminded me of Laminated Shelving with a mirror glued to it, as that exactly what it was. I just don't know where all the weight was coming from, The glass or the board.

And I install Doors EVERYDAY, patio's, entry's. ints... Trust me when I say rediculously heavy. Its a 'WTF' Heavy...
