Whilst our doors are bespoke, we developed a revolutionary online Clear Opening Calculator that allows you to select the best door option to meet your requirements. Standard door parameters are offered, and you only need to enter the structural opening dimensions to obtain the achievable clear openings. Where doors are sliding over walls or screens, you will need to enter the clear opening width. For bespoke applications, please contact us to discuss any doors outside of the normal parameters or if extended glazed screens are required.
