6 panel door

STEPS 1 & 2

There is no ‘industry standard’ for door sizing, so follow these steps carefully. Measuring your door and determining your door handing is very important to ensure the best fit for your opening. For best results, have a professional measure your opening and get it installed.

STEP 1.

Measure the width of your existing door slab.

This is the edge of one side of the door slab to the edge of the other side of the door slab. (X)

STEP 2.

Measure the height of your existing door slab.

This is the top edge of the door slab to the bottom edge of the door slab. Do not include the sweep on the bottom of the door. (Y)

STEP 3.

Measure the jamb depth of your existing door.

This is the inside edge of the door jamb to the outside edge of the door jamb (area where hinges are). Do not include any trim / moulding in this measurement.

STEP 4.

Determine the handing of your existing door

(See next section for visual and double door options).

A). All handing must be done from the exterior of the door. Looking at your door from the outside, your door swings:

A or B – Into the house (inswing)

C or D – Out of the house (outswing)

B). Looking at your door from the outside, your door knob is:

B or D – On the left side of the door

A or C – On the right side of the door

C). Select the Letter below to determine the proper handing of your door.

B – Right-Hand Inswing

A – Left-Hand Inswing

D – Left-Hand Outswing

C – Right-Hand Outswing

(See below for visual and more options)
