Question Jeld Wen Closet Bi-Fold Doors (24 Inch) - Can You Cut Them?

Hi,

My closet width is 47 inches, and these Jeld Wen closet bi-fold doors don't fit so I would need to cut them.

But since these are not 100% wood pine doors; can I still cut 1/2 inch off these doors?

Thank you!

You'll need to cut an equal amount off both sides of each door. Otherwise the doors may bind in the track since one will be wider than the other and they won't open completely.

If these consist of 4-12" panels, basically you'll be taking 1/8" (about a saw blade width) off of each side of all 4 doors. Easy enough on a table saw...would be a real PITA with a circular saw.

Bypass doors would be much easier.
