What is the finished opening for a bifold door?

Drywall Opening. The required size of the finished opening for a 48-by-80-inch door is 48 by 82 inches. The rough opening should be 49 by 82 for a 48-by-80-inch door. This allows for 1/2-inch-thick drywall on both sides and at the top, 80 inches for the doors and hardware, and a 1-to- 1 1/2-inch space under the door.

Likewise, people ask, what is the rough opening for a bifold door?

For example a four-foot wide (48”) by six feet, eight inches high (80”) Bifold set of doors, would require a rough opening width of 50 inches and a height of 82 inches. This sized rough opening will allow for either a doorjamb kit to be installed or for ¾” thick select lumber to be used to create the finished doorjamb.

Where do you put the handle on a bifold door?

Although there is nothing preventing you from putting the knob of your bifold door anywhere you like, there is a proper placement for it. It's in the horizontal center of the leading door, 36 inches from the floor; if the doors have panels, the knob should go in the vertical center of the middle panel instead.
