Technical Information


Swing Direction

WARNING: Not all door manufacturers

determine the swing of the door exactly the same. Avoid confusion and possible ordering mistakes by learning how we determine the swing directions.


Pass-Through Clearance

Information: A bookcase door needs a certain about of space within its own frame in order to operate properly. The left over space is called "Pass-through clearance." Learn about pass-through clearances for both In & Out swing doors and the required distances from any adjacent walls.
