Not just another pretty face, our bi-fold mirror closet doors are solid 3/4 in. MDF with the mirror laminated directly to the surface. Other mirror doors are simply mesh backed mirror in a lightweight frame. In 1957, when our doors with our patented TruClose cam activated hinges and heavy duty hardware first hit the market it quickly became the top choice for Manhattan developers and architects alike. From Turner Construction when they built the Hofstra Dormitories to HRH Construction when they built the Trump Towers, developers continue to purchase our Impact Plus bi-fold and sliding doors. Mir-Mel doors, built on the success of our Impact Plus line, are the perfect marriage of beauty and safety.
Please note that the mir-mel mirror is surface mounted to a solid MDF panel, you will see the edge of the mirror from the side of the door

1 of a kind, TruClose cam activated hinges, a softer more definitive close
I definitely like these a lot better than the ugly louvered doors I replaced but they're pretty pricey, especially when you consider that they charge you $50 shipping per door (that's per door, not per order!). Door arrived well packed on it's own palette, but there were still some blemishes on the MDF that seemed to be from manufacturing. Not so bad that I would go through the trouble of returning, but definitely more blemishes than I see with my IKEA furniture. Also important to note is that the mirrors are not recessed and are just glued to the surface of the MDF panel (you can't tell this from the picture on the website). Definitely detracts from the look but again it still looks better than my old doors. The install would have been simple except that the door was exactly 36" wide, which meant that I had to trim the door with a circular saw to make it fit my 36" opening. Note that the door is quite heavy as well, but if you can lift a 90lb object then you can probably install it on your own.
Easy to Install, nicer than regular doors, has mirrors
mirrors not recessed, blemishes in mdf, pricey
