  "3L - 1R" Outswing Bifold Configuration

explanation of bifold door function and operation  
This unit features multipoint locking hardware on only the active sash (A), with manual flushbolts on the semi-active sash (B). This allows the multipoint locking handle equipped sash (A) to function independently as seen in “Function #1”, similar to a single swing door. The semi-active panel can then also be opened, similar to a French door as seen in “Function #2”. Lastly, the remaining two panels with manual flushbolts can be slid down for full opening as seen in “Function #3”. Note that dual multipoint handles are available as shown in the 3L-3R Inswing Door (reference lower right bottom of page).
 

  "4 Left" Outswing Bifold Configuration

explanation of bifold door function and operation  
This unit does not have multipoint locking hardware due to the panel configuration (all sashes are fully hinged into unit tracks). This unit will require the flushbolts in sash (A) to be retracted prior to unit opening. In this case, the unit can be operated with two sashes collapsed as seen in “Function #1.” Then by retracting the flushbolts in sash (C), the sashes can then be fully collapsed to provide a full unit opening as seen in “Function #2”.
