FINISHED OPENINGS - FOR USE WHEN ORDERING DOOR FOR EXISTING OPENING

The finished opening is the clear opening inside your jamb after all finishing, trim and flooring has been completed. If you are replacing an existing door, remember to always measure the opening - NOT the door.

1. Measure the height of your opening at each side

2. Measure the width of the opening at the top, middle and bottom to make sure the opening width is constant. If the measurement if not constant (square & plumb), use the smallest measurement so the door will fit properly.

3. For a single door - choose a left of right side hinge from the front of the door (front of door is side facing the customer).

How to Measure your Strip Door Opening:

When ordering your strip curtain, indicate your exact door opening dimensions by measuring the opening width and height. Check for any obstructions near the opening that may affect the mounting of the strip door to the surface. Common obstructions are lights, switches, vents and drain lines from coils. If you choose wall mount, an additional 6 inches in height and a minimum of 4 inches in width will automatically be added to the door to cover the face of the opening.

Flat Wall Mount - Mounting method in which the strip door overlaps the opening in width and height. Standard overlap is 6" in height and a minimum of 4" in width. Also called “face of wall” or “surface mount”, this method requires clear, unobstructed wall space around the opening. When considering attachment methods, keep in mind that a flat wall mount will overlap your opening.
