There are multiple options for the amounts of leaves available, and the configuration in which they open. The main point to note is that if you have an even amount of leaves all folding one way that there will be no main door handle, as there is no independantly hinging lead door door. These can be hard to use, and from outside there is no handle. We always recommend that you have an odd number of leaves if possible to have a independantly hinging lead door door. If this is not possible then we would recommend that you split the bifold so one pane opens in the other direction. For example if you have a 4 pane bifold, have 3 fold one way and a independantly hinging lead door door that opens the other way. Windows Plus Online designer does explain the options available as you design and shows if a independantly hinging lead door door is included in the design selected.
