Doors: general

Doors exterior and interior; Side-hung metal, wood, plastic, glass and composite materials.

Doors are standard components of exterior and interior building entrances.

The side hung/hinged door is the most common, usually wooden, metal, plastic or a composite of these materials. Frameless glass doors allow for increased light and enhance a feeling of space. Stable doors are divided horizontally such that the top may be opened independently, a popular feature in period properties.

Door canopies provide cover over the doorway protecting the door and visitors from the elements, and may add aesthetic value to the façade. Garage doors are necessarily larger to allow vehicular access, are typically sectional or roller doors in metal, timber or a composite material, and operated manually or mechanically. Access doors/access hatches provide access to ducts and services, most often electrical components, for inspection, maintenance or repair.

Commercial properties may require sliding, rotating or automatic doors. Healthcare, prison or educational environments also require specialised doorsets with enhanced hygienic, security or fire-safety features. All such specific door features are available on this page.
