Topic tags/keywords: question

ok, so ive got this on going project. Im makeing an enclosure for a snake. Most of the finer points and details are working out nicely. Except for the doors. Several ideas have come to mind. Security bieng a HUGE concern, both for pet and people. Bi-fold doors are looking like a pretty good option. But, everything ive looked at so far deals with top hung doors. Anybody out there try or hear of bi-fold doors with a 2nd track at the bottom. Looking at Johnson Hardwares site, it seems like a fairly plausable idea. Any thoughts or ideas thrown out there would be a big help.

There are MANY solutions for this. Height and width of panels would help narrow the search. Or maybe sketch of enclosure. You are on the right track… but there are many solutions.

I would be wary of bifold doors, is it possible the snake can figure it out? Knowing little about snakes I cannot say but I always assume the enemy is smarter than I am and somehow I make out better that way. (laughing) Pass on the snake thing though.

Yes, bifold can have two tracks. But, it’s easy to open from the inside since they are hinged in the middle.
