There are some things you need to know about room doors before installation: variants, standard sizes, assembly and processing

Whether in your own home, workplace, shops or with your friends, we encounter room doors everywhere. While building and renovating a home, countless questions arise in our minds about doors, although they are very common for each of us and are used many times a day. Which room doors do you have? What should I pay attention to during installation? Is it easy to change room doors?


Classic door types: hinged and sliding door

You are in the middle of building or renovating a house and the choice of room doors is slowly approaching. A visit to a specialist store or a look on the Internet will show: There are lots of room doors in a variety of colours, shapes and designs.
In short: the range of choice is very wide. In order to make the right decision, you must first have an overview of what types of doors are available and which ones are best suited for what.

Single action doors are a classic model for interiors and are even considered the most widely used type of door. The door wing is mounted with the help of hinges and can rotate around the door hinge, so this variant is often called a “revolving door”. The hinge side indicates which way the door “turns,” or which side the handle and lock are on. If the door opening is “DIN left”, the door hinges are on the left and the lever is on the right. With the opposite designation “DIN right”, the hinges are accordingly on the right and the latch on the left.
The stop side, also called the DIN direction, is always determined by the side of the door on which the door can be opened. In other words, from the side of the door where you can see the door hinges when the door is closed. Doors usually open into the room, that is, into the room. In this case, the stopping direction must be determined. If the door opens to a room that is often seen in small rooms such as a cellar (such as an anteroom), the opening direction should be determined from the outside.

It should be noted that when installing single-action doors and when open, they take up a lot of space. However, it provides ideal protection against drafts.

Standard dimensions are very important for trouble-free assembly

When building a house, it’s important from the start to ensure that the door openings conform to the usual standard dimensions. This means that no further modifications to the shell are required when the door is installed, making installation much easier.
