Abstract

Some enclosures for data processors have a wide vertical opening that is covered by bifold panels. Rectangular tubes extend along the upper and lower edges of the opening and have slots to receive supporting pins that are pivotally connected to the top and bottom of each panel near one vertical edge so that these edges slide along the channels as the door is folded open.
