Almost all Design Specialties fireplace doors can be made with either twin or bifolding doors. Twin doors are just two doors that swing open on a hinge that allows for 180 degrees of rotation, so they can fold back flat against the fireplace (when the door is mounted on the outside). Our bifold doors are basically just the same as the twin doors, but have a hinge in the middle that allows them to fold back on themselves. These are called "Full-View Swing-Out Bifold Doors" and they are not stuck in a track that prevents them from opening beyond 90 degrees like many doors sold at home centers. To best illustrate how they work, we have taken photos of a steel door and an aluminum door. These doors are about 15 years old, so the actual hinges and latches have changed over the years, but they still have the same functionality as shown here.
The door featured below is the Blacksmith Bifold Fireplace Door in a forged iron finish. This shows how the bifold doors work with the steel frames.
Here are photos of the Brookfield Bifold Fireplace Door shown with the optional gate mesh doors behind the glass.
These options are behind the glass so you can burn the fire with the doors open and still have spark protection. Great for real wood or gas logs since most gas long manufacturers insist that you have a screen in front of the logs when they are burning. Mesh panel doors are the most popular and are best for when there are toddlers present because they will not open backwards whereas the mesh screens are easily pushed in.
