I've been looking for bi-fold doors for my nice new but very compact
bathroom. Unfortunately the door frames in this house are all metric sizes,
this one being 726mm(28 3/4") x 2040mm (80 1/4"). Days of searching the net
has revealed no supplier or manufacturer of metric bi-folds.
BUT there are plenty available at 762 (30") x 1981 (78"). The height can
easily be accommodated by adding to the door frame. According to the fitting
instructions supplied with ones in Homebase 9mm can safely be trimmed from
either side. Would it be reasonable to remove the central hinges, remove 9mm
from each of the four sides and then replace the hinges?
The central stiles are the same size as the outer ones so I cannot see why
not. Just want reassurance before I shell out.
Anyone foresee any problems??
