Will 23-100, or something more sturd, support my heavy door?

A quick learner from Maryland says:
Hello,

I am looking for a replacement to the top pivot assembly for my bifold door, which was identified as part 23-100. The issue is that the door is heavy and the pivot is tilted. I wonder if a replacement will be the same way. I will be grateful if you can recommend a more sturdy solution that is better suited for heavier doors. Advice will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Oleg

Hello there, Oleg. I notice you have a Paniflex bi-fold door. It looks like you have either been using something like the 23-100 or 23-248 top spring loaded pivot assembly. The 23-248 has a return to go over a 3/4" thick door. That said, see if you can use the 23-248. That would be much stronger.
