Bi-Fold Closet System

Hello - I have some bi-fold closet doors that I've wrestled with for years. They don't remain closed and easily pop open. The hinges are horrible, casting off a metallic dust and the track doesn't seem the most sturdy either. My question is...does anyone know of any good bi-fold door closet systems. If I have to rip out everything and start over that's fine as I'm frustrated with it. I'm guessing my problem lies in my track system and the hinges could be of better quality too.

Could anybody recommended any good bi-fold door track systems? Also, any recommendations on good hinges? I'll take any advice I can get as I'm getting tired of my current setup. Thank you!

There should be a spring in the top track where the doors meet. The spring keeps the doors closed.

I've used a ton of Johnson bi-fold door hardware and always been happy with the quality.


They make several grades or duty ratings; I generally avoid the lowest grade.

They even make a system that allows the bi-fold doors to swing out of the opening and fold flat against the adjoining walls, which eliminates the annoying way the doors block part of the opening.
