How do I
measure finished openings?
To assure correct sizing of your Woodfold accordion door the finished opening
should be measured exact side to side dimension and exact height from header surface
(where track attaches) to final finished floor or counter surface. This dimension should
be stated width first and then height and should represent sizes after everything has been
done to the opening that will ever be done to it.
How much do Woodfold accordion doors weigh?
Depending on the Series, weights are as follows. Series 240: 6-8 height 10 lbs per
lineal foot, 8-0 height 12 lbs per lineal foot. Series 440, 540: 10-0 height 15 lbs per
lineal foot, 12-0 height 18 lbs per lineal foot
What is the "best" shipping schedule?
Woodfold's normal production cycle (manufacturing time [up to 250 lineal feet] for
all Series in our standard finishes) is two to three weeks. Time in transit will average
five to ten days from the U.S. West Coast to the East Coast. Additional shipping times
apply for Alaska, Canada, Hawaii and other offshore destinations.
What is the warranty of Woodfold doors?
By use of our continuous pin hinge hardware system, we have virtually eliminated
the two vulnerable areas found in traditional accordion doors. These are the outside fold
and the roller system. This hardware system will prevent the vinyl panel connector used at
the outside fold from cracking or checking. Also, rather than being fastened into the core
of the body panel, the metal shank of the top roller system is riveted to the upper metal
continuous pin hinge hardware system. Therefore, under normal circumstances, if any of the
following situations occur, we would, upon return of the door, repair it or replace it.
The vinyl panel connectors crack or check.
The rollers break out.
The body panels delaminate.
We do not have a warranty regarding installation repair, re-installation, labor or
transportation. Unfinished doors do not have a warranty.
What is a stack left?
What is a stack right? What is a right-hand door? What is a left-hand door? As you
face the door from the primary side, stack left or left-hand would stack and be affixed to
the wall/jamb on your left. Stack right or right-hand would be stacked/affixed to the
wall/jamb on your right.
What are the requirements for the header to handle the
weight of the door?
Headers should be fabricated to span the entire opening without sagging. Folding
door track must be plumb and level for the door to operate properly. In consideration of
various building code and structural requirements we suggest that structural and design
requirements for support be addressed locally.
How do I install the doors in the opening?
Woodfold doors are top suspended. Track will be attached to the header with screws
provided. Complete installation instructions are provided with each door.
Is my door repairable in the field?
Some repairs are easily accomplished in the field. Others require specialized
tooling with equipment available only at the Woodfold factory. For specific repair
questions please contact Woodfold.
Can I paint the door?
Vinyl-lam doors and hardwood veneer doors are not suitable for painting in the
field. If you want to paint a Woodfold door, we suggest that you specify our paint grade
MDF material or better yet allow Woodfold to custom paint or stain the door to match your
finish requirements. Please note that unfinished doors carry no warranty.
I've changed my mind on the color. Can I paint over
the door panels?
Woodfold doors are typically faced in vinyl lam or hardwood veneers with a lacquer
topcoat. Vinyl lam panels cannot be painted. Hardwoods, if hand sanded lightly, may be
able to be painted or restained in the field. Extreme care must be taken not to get any
finishing materials on the panel connectors or into the saw kerfs. Any refinishing in the
field would void Woodfold's warranty.
Can I exchange or return my door?
Every Woodfold door is custom made to size and as such is not returnable.
How do I shorten a Woodfold door?
Woodfold 240 Series doors can be shortened in the field. 440/ 540 Series doors
cannot be shortened in the field. Specific instructions are available upon request.
What latch/lock options are available?
Woodfold's 240, 440, Series doors feature a latch two sides with dead latch as
standard. Latch one side or a magnet are available at no additional charge. Key lock
options are available at additional cost.
Do Woodfold doors fold flat?
No. By design an accordion folding door is intended to have adjacent panels at a
slight angle (it depends on the fullness of the door within the opening). If they folded
flat the stacking action would be lost.
Are Woodfold doors reversible?
Our 240, 440/540, 640/740 Series doors are reversible and may be stacked left or
right. This may change the jamb/mounting panel direction or may require reversing the

Can you key the door to my system?
Woodfold's Adams-Wright lock system is provided standard with a Weiser cylinder.
Most commercially available lock cylinders can be installed in the Adams-Wright unit in
the field by a qualified locksmith. Woodfold also offers master and custom keying at the
time of manufacture.
Can you have one color vinyl on one side of the door
and another color of vinyl on the other side of the door?
No. Woodfold receives their vinyl lam material pre-applied from the panel supplier.
This assures you of the highest quality and best lamination technology available. For
multi-colored doors we do offer custom paint or stain services.
Does the door get fastened at the bottom as well as
No. Woodfold doors are top suspended only.
Do I make any deductions for actual door size?
Fabrication dimensions required by Woodfold call for final exact finish openings.
Do not deduct from this finished opening size. However, for floor clearances other than
the standard 5/8" nominal clearance you can specify the clearance you want. For
instance, 5' 0" wide x 6' 8" high with 1" floor clearance. For 2100 and
3300 Series doors specify exact finished opening size only.
What is the maximum length per piece for track?
Woodfold track is extruded in 12' lengths. Actual track lengths provided with doors
are based on a number of factors. In some instances the track is shipped packed separately
or the track may also be packed within the door crate. In the event of multiple pieces of
track for a single door the track profile provides for splice pins.
