Bypass doors are composed of two doors normally that slide past each other in the door opening. Since there are less doors used than in a bifold of the same size, each door is normally wider. For instance, a 6′ wide closet would have two 3′ wide doors to make up the width. In some special circumstances, you can also use three or more doors, with a custom installation. A thing to also remember, when installing bypass doors , the opening may have to be undersized slightly, to allow for an overlap, or make one of the doors wider, example, using a 32” and a 30” wide door for a 5′ wide opening.
