Most of our lifestyle images show a pair of handles on both doors, some handles are "unspung" and rely on the lock/latch mechanism to keep the lever part of the handle level, please do not attempt to fit any unsprung handle to the "slave" door at any time.
All door pair sizes are "overall" for the pair, they are not for each door leaf, we cannot stress highly enough that the sizes are for both halfs.

Popular Double Door Sizes:
Our standard range of interior double doors are mainly available in the 1981x1168x40mm and some are also available in a range of sizes including, 1981x1220x40mm, 1981x1372x40mm and 1981x1524x40mm overall sizes including where they are machine rebated at the point where they meet in the middle, these doors are available in Pine, Oak, Mahogany and white primed.
When considering double doors you do not have to be restricted to the sizes shown above, it is entirely practical to get any two standard sizes of doors and place them together to form a pair, in doing this you then have the choice of (explained in next para) adding a rebate, machining a rebate or just allowing the doors to meet in the middle with a minimum amount of space.
This is when two doors the two doors overlap where the meeting rails of the doors join when closed, machining a rebate is when half the "thickness" of the door is channeled out (for want of a better description) to allow the doors to interlock by 12mm.
You can also choose to add the rebate if you have the correct space within your frame where the doors will be fitted, the best way is to add a "pairmaker" (a "T" shape section) from the drop down option in any pairmaker door offering or individually within our Joinery section on this site, just note that this will add width to the doors where they will meet in the middle, the interior pairmaker adds 12mm to the width of the doors and 15mm for the external door pairs.
Machining a rebate reduces the overall width of the door by 12mm but adding a Pairmaker rebate which in effect is a "T" shape will add 12mm to the overall width of two single doors that are put together to form a pair.
Double doors are also sold as "Room Dividers" which means that not only do you get the two doors but also the frame to suit the chosen doors, the sizes of the standard "Room Dividers" are 1246mm, 1558mm, 1904mm, 2478mm and 2494mm, not all Double doors are available in all these sizes, the range of timber types is confined to Oak, Mahogany, Pine and white primed softwood.
All double doors are in our opinion one of the best ways to close off one room from another and depending on the aperture or space within the wall that you have to work with they may well require a side screen to the left, the right or both sides of the double doors, the other option is to consider using doors from our Multifold range where there are numerous folding doors as alternatives and other sizes available.
