The handle is also a good opportunity to add a touch of personality to your door. You can choose from a spring-loaded ‘T’ handle or a Hoppe Atlanta level door handle, both of which have a subtle sophistication about them. Like the other components, they can also withstand repeat use and last for years.
The Catch Kit
Lastly, there’s the catch kit. This is the device which holds the doors together against the wall and means you don’t have to be concerned with it sliding along the track when open. They have to be strong enough to hold the full weight of the doors and are usually fitted with a stopper to prevent them from colliding with the wall.
Catch kits don’t get a lot of attention but if you want some idea of how important they are, try opening your bifold doors and not securing them. You’ll soon get tired of pushing them back into place every time the wind blows. Now imagine that happening when hosting a social event.
