Below are a number of explanations to help in determining what options you will choose from the drop down menus.
Measurements to Know
When sizing the door you will need to consider two principle measurements, rough opening and frame size. See the image below for reference.
The rough opening is the distance from stud to stud for framing purposes. We advise that you build a rough opening that is ½ in. wider and 1/2 in. taller than the total door unit. We find that this allows for sufficient shimming and adjustments during installation.
The Frame Width is the actual width of the door jamb. When determining the frame width you want to put in a number that is at least a half inch less than the rough opening size to allow room to square and level the door. For example, for a rough opening 48 inches wide, order a frame width of 47 1/2 inches.
The Frame Height is the actual height of the door jamb. This includes the the header and threshold. When determining the frame height you want to put in a number that is at least a half inch less than the rough opening size to allow room to square and level the door. For example, for a rough opening 96 inches tall, order a frame height of 96 1/2 inches.
Number of Doors
You must choose the number of doors that make up the wall system. We will use the Frame Width and the Number of Doors to calculate the width of the individual doors in the wall system. For example, if the frame width is 120 inches and you indicate that the Number of Doors in the wall system should be 5, the individuals doors will be approximately 24 inches wide. If the frame width is 120 inches and you indicate the Number of Doors should be 4, the individual doors will be approximately 30 inches wide. If the frame width is 120 inches and you indicate the Number of Doors should be 3, the individual doors will be approximately 40 inches wide. Please contact us directly if you wish to configure the wall system and door widths differently.
You may choose from a number of our popular interior doors styles. Please use the diagram below to to identify which door style you wish to incorporate into the wall system design. Contact us with questions about custom styles.
Choosing a Wood Species…
We offer a range of wood species to go standard with our doors. If you would like something other than what we have, in most cases we can source other wood types that are not listed below, though prices will vary.
As you decide which wood you’ll choose please consider these important factors. How the wood species will react to your climate and site condition. Also, how it collaborates with the overall design of the door and your project. If you have specific questions about what wood to choose that are not answered here, feel free to reach out to us.
African Mahogany (Sapele) is a reddish-brown hardwood wood and is desired for its rarity, strength, and beauty. It is one of our most durable, and resists swelling and warping, making it ideal for harsher environments and coastal climates. With its stability and smooth surface, Sapele is also used as our Paint Grade wood selection.
American Black Walnut hardwood is naturally darker in color, much like an espresso brown. It is strong, hard, and exceptionally durable, without being excessively heavy. When sealed there is a dark contrast from the heartwood and sapwood offering an exotic finish. Although Walnut is naturally dark it has the propensity to lighten over time.
White Oak hardwood has a medium brown grain with an olive cast, while the sapwood ranges from a light cream to tan. Its moisture movement is medium to high and it has a good density with a medium to coarse texture. White Oak is more resistant to weathering issues than Red Oak.
Alder is a light brown with a yellow or reddish tinge. The wood is fairly straight grained with a uniform texture. Alder is a relatively soft hardwood of medium density that has low bending strength, shock resistance, and stiffness. Clear Alder is an option if you want to capture the grain beauty without the rustic feel of open knots.
Red Oak hardwood has a pinkish tone and is compared to White Oak. It is a heavy wood and is not as durable as White Oak. Because of its hardness, it has a good density with a medium to a coarse texture in the grain.
Cherry hardwood is a light to reddish-brown color which deepens with age and exposure to sunlight. Cherry will require a good sealer and proper maintenance. Cherry wood is a delicate wood and close-grained with high resistance to warping. It is often used in cabinetry and furniture-making.
Jamb depth depends on the thickness of the walls into which the door unit will be placed. Most walls are studded out with 2×4’s or 2×6’s, and so, our most common jamb depths are 4 5/8 in. and 6 5/8 in., respectively. Usually the jamb is flush with the interior and exterior wall covering, with the seam covered by casing.
We have standard jamb depths of
4 5/8 in.
5 1/4 in.
5 1/2 in.
6 5/8 in.
If you wish for us to provide a jamb depth different from one of our standard options, please contact us.
You may choose between two different finishes for the aluminum threshold cover plate: black or grey.
Most wall systems will require no threshold. However, we offer two different threshold types for projects requiring thresholds for aesthetic, acoustic, climate, or site-specific reasons.
The full saddle is 1/2 inch tall and sits directly on top of the floor. The full saddle works when the floor level below the wall system is continuous from one room to the next.
The half saddle stands 1/2 inch tall and sits directly on top of the floor. The half saddle works when there is a break in the floor level below the wall system from one room to the next. The half saddle threshold has a 90 degree angle on the interior facing side for the floor covering to butt up against.
Swing configuration defines the direction of the door motion and from which side the pivot is placed. You can choose either a Right-hand Swing or a Left-hand Swing. The layout of your installation site will determine the swing configuration. To determine if the door is left-hand or right-hand swing, imagine you are looking at the door from the outside. If the pivot point is on the left side, it is a left-hand swing. If the pivot point is on the right-hand side, the door is a right-hand swing.
Use the diagram below to help identify which configuration will serve your project best.
In almost all cases, customers will wish to specify the Free-swing A pivot hardware, which allows the door to move as a standard hinge hardware would. We offer a Free-swing B pivot hardware for applications that could benefit from pivot hardware with a lower profile. We offer the Closer hardware upgrade for customers using the door in commercial applications or for customers who want the doors to always return to a fixed position automatically. See descriptions and diagrams below.
Free-swing A and B Pivot Hardware
Our standard pivot hardware is a durable, specially engineered free-swing pivot. This pivot hardware works for a wide range of doors, from small to very large. Use the diagram below to determine if your application is better suited to Free-swing A or Free-swing B. No matter the door size, the free-swing pivot hinge allows for effortless door operation. The hardware incorporates sets of ball-bearings for smooth, long-lasting performance. The door swings freely around the pivot point. There are no springs or tension pulling the door closed.
Closer, Dorma BTS/80
In commercial applications and in rare residential applications, we install a bottom closer. The bottom closer creates constant tension on the door’s swing to pull the door into the closed position. This means one must hold the door in order to keep it open. With a closer the door will not rest in an open position unless the hold-open feature is activated, which holds the door open at a 100° angle.
Standard 7 Weeks to Ship
Your door leaves the shop seven weeks from order confirmation. Allow additional time* for freight delivery. See map below for approximate transit times to your region.
Rush 4-1/2 Weeks to Ship
If seven weeks is not soon enough, we can manufacture a custom door in a month or so if you choose the Rush Option. The additional charge covers reducing production time by 2 weeks including but not limited to; paying the extra hours worked by the production team, paying rush charges for any specialty hardware/materials not in stock. The door will ship 4 1/2 – 5 weeks from the date of order confirmation. While most door designs are able to be completed in this time frame, some designs may require additional time in production. This rush time frame will be shown on your order before you sign for final order confirmation to begin production. Allow additional time* for freight delivery. In order to cut down on shipping time, your order may be sent FedEx Freight Priority instead of Economy. See map below for approximate transit times to your region.
*Pivot Door Company guarantees ship dates; we do not guarantee delivery times. Ship times depend on the carrier. That being said, we have come to trust and see great reliability in Fedex Freight.
The Door Action describes how a door swings. A single acting door swings just one direction. A double acting door swings two directions. The diagram below illustrates the difference.
