Top 6 Reasons to Choose Double Swinging Doors vs a Traditional Hinged Door
1. Double Swinging Doors offers narrower
doors vs. a single swing door. This will allow them to be used in applications where swing space is limited.
Sometimes you need a door installed in a location but when the
door swings…it takes over an additional space. Double Swinging Doors allows for
the space where the doors swing into to be about half the size. If a standard 36”
door cannot swing, but an 18” door could swing into the location this is a great
saver of space.
2. Double Swinging Doors are easier to
install and don’t require a traditional door casing.
Double Swinging Doors can be installed
into a hallway, a standard door opening, or a cased opening. Offering the flexibility to put doors
anywhere in your home. If you are
installing in a hallway and have no studs for the door to be located on, we offer
trim boards to make the installation seamless.
3. Double Swinging Doors have hinges that
will automatically return the doors to center…no more forgetting to shut the
Do you have a door that always need shut;
double action hinges will return the doors to center. No more having to shut the doors behind
4. Double Swinging Doors require less
effort to open, therefore you can push thru the doors without having to twist a door
Double Action Hinges allow your
doors to be easily pushed open and are non-handed. That means you can simply
open the doors with a push of your hand. The doors will open, you can walk thru, and then the door will swing back and forth and self-return the door(s) to center. Additionally, gravity hinges allow the doors
to hold open if you so desire.
5. Partial length Double Swinging Doors
allow air and light to pass between spaces.
Do you need air conditioning or heat
to transfer into a space but still need privacy; Double Swinging Doors are a
perfect option. Since the doors don’t
need to be full height this can easily be achieved. The partial length will also allow for light
to continue to flow into the room. Double Swinging Doors come in a variety of
heights. The most common height is 42” and 60”.
Depending on the coverage you need, Swinging Café Doors offers these standard sizes 38”, 42”, 48”, 60”, 70-95" tall. We can also customize a door for your height requirements. We have done doors as tall
as 95” and as short as 24”, we can customize the door heihgt and width for your exact opening.
6. Custom Double Swinging Doors can be made
to fit your existing opening. No need to modify the opening to fit the
The Double Swinging Doors will be custom
made to fit into a cased opening, traditional door jamb opening, or a hallway. The
hinges do need to hit a stud, so if you are going thru drywall you will need
longer screws. If you don’t have studs
located where the doors are going, you can use trim boards. The trim boards we offer come in the
same material/finish as the doors. Please refer to this video showing how to
measure your door opening.
