Considered a standard and one of the most common types of doors seen in homes, it is also popularly called as passage doors. These doors have a basic framework with two stiles running vertically and two rails that run horizontally. The doors attach to the frames using two or three hinges. Its other end swings in and out of the door. These doors can open in both the left and the right direction. These are available as a slab and as a pre-hung door unit.
Also known as bypass doors, they are ideal for areas with wide openings. They are more commonly used in offices. In homes, they are usually employed in closets or perhaps a master bedroom. These doors do not swing open but slide on a track. The slider doors are often light and hand on rollers that slide on the overhead tracks. In big areas, they are often mounted in pairs of two or threes and bypass one another for easy access. Since they lack the swing option, they do not disturb the other elements of the interior. They are also used popularly in doors opening to the outdoor space like garden or patio.
This is another type of slider which has surfaced only several years back but has managed to climb quite a bit of the popularity chart. Ideal for small spaces where there is no sufficient room for any door to swing, these doors slide in and out of space or ‘pocket’ that is provisioned inside the wall. Its frame has a side jamb which is split to let the door slide inside and outside. It also has a top jamb that has a track built into it. The rollers, used for gliding the door are mounted on the top of the doors. They can be installed both as a single door and as a double door.
There are multiple doors present here which are hinged together and tend to fold into each other. They are mostly used in wide spaces where the where a conventional hinged door swing would lead to awkward movement. These doors often exhibit actions of both hinged doors and sliders and often employ both end pivots and overhead tracks. These doors are often installed in laundry rooms, pantry, closets etc.
The unique design of this door makes them apart from all other types of doors and easily recognizable. Divided horizontally, each section of its top and bottom has separate panels. They are extremely functional and attractive as kitchen doors and even front doors.
