The Traction style drives one or both wheels by chain and sprocket mechanism; Fixed Chain has a positive drive between it and the adjacent leaf. Linear or Wrap-around Cable Systems can be used with the drive systems to connect the idler leaves to the drive leaves and move them to the open or closed position, for large doors or use of "Pickup Unit Drive" System for smaller systems."
These doors have even numbers of leaves divided at the center, with half of the leaves opening to the right jamb and the other half to the left.
