These are commonly referred to as ”hinge stops” because they are a floor-mounted door stop that has a hook-and-eye design. These are a multi-purpose item since they stop a door from opening too far, as well as, keep a door open. They are great for standard to moderately-heavy doors.
If you think about it, when a person tells you that the room behind a solid wooden door is forbidden you will take it seriously because you can’t see what is on the other side. If someone says that the room behind the glass door is forbidden you wouldn’t find it as intimidating. Why? It’s because you can see through the glass. You can see what is on the other side.
Hardware is complex with bifold doors and must be precision engineered from quality materials besides being fitted just right during installation. Improper alignment can affect performance and cause stress on frames besides making the door hard to open and close. Quality systems have wheels that run on flat tracks and pivoted end doors for smooth movement even when the jamb does not allow much adjustment. Bifold door installation is important too when it comes to getting the threshold right to prevent rain seepage and yet creating a smooth transition that does not cause one to stub one’s toes. Rain penetration is an important matter especially if the door is exposed. This is where the expertise of installer comes into play to provide a perfectly rebated rain-proof threshold. Security is another aspect to consider in the matter of bifold door hardware and a typical secure door would have multipoint locking system with shoot bolt for intermediate panels.
