Bifolds are made up of a number of panels that hinge together. How many panels there are will depend on the size of the aperture, the system used and the aesthetic that you’re trying to achieve. Some systems can handle very large panels.
Aside from the number of panels, there are also various opening options. For example, on a five-panel set you could have the middle doors opening.
