Rebating, an explanation of what a rebate is on double doors and the different forms it can take.
Rebating, the word "rebate" in joinery terms relates to allowing the two doors to 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, this is best done with one of our "pair makers" from our Joinery section, think of it as a "T" shaped item that sits between two doors and add this to one of the doors where they will meet in the middle, the pair maker shown is a bespoke manufactured item to suit internal and external doors. All are supplied longer for site trimming and notching at the top may be required for the lintol door stop depending on how your doors open.
Please do not arrange any tradesman until the goods have arrived, been checked over for damages and are suitable for installation as you intended, courier delays due to illness, traffic issues or product damages can also impact on your arrangements. Wood products will have a naturally occurring grain, this will vary regardless of veneer type, this is the beauty of wood. We cannot be held liable for any consequential costs should you arrange an early installation or whether the courier is delayed and lastly if the grain is wavy / straight and not to your liking.
