Swinging, or hinged doors, are the most common type of door. The door can open to the left or right, and can be designed to swing into the home or outwards. Doors are available in 1, 2 or 3 panel configurations and are often designed with two units opening at the center.
Inswing. These doors swing into the home and are ideal for conditions that may expose the door to the elements when open. Also, if the door is at the top of a staircase, it would be hazardous to have the door open over the stairs.
Outswing. If interior space is limited due to furnishings or other interior features, an outswing door is ideal because it will swing outwards from the home.
Round Top. Arched or round top doors provide an elegant, graceful appearance. These doors can swing inward or outward.
