Ideas for Soundproofing Bi-Fold Doors?

Good Questions

Pin it button big
Q: I live in a den that's been converted into a bedroom. My doors are bi-fold and have a gap at the bottom, the top, and in the middle. They provide very little privacy and sound passes through them rather easily. In addition, one of the walls has a door that can't be opened but is very poorly sealed off, making all the building hallway traffic highly audible. Any ideas for soundproofing?
