Some Tips and Guides for Planning and Measuring
Make a list or table, showing number of doors and their dimensions. Be sure to make a note if hinge drilling is required, and which side the handle needs to be positioned.
Don’t forget to include any extra accessories which may be required, such as carcasses, end panels, plinths and handles. End panels come in a standardised depth of 20mm, so please take this into account when making your measurements (for most colours, a thin vinyl alternative is available where space is tight).
Finally, take a moment to review your sketches and list to make sure all aspects are considered. It’s a good idea to get someone independent to check over what you’ve written down, as a fresh pair of eyes are more likely to spot any errors.
Measure across the top of the door to get the Width and from bottom to top to get the Height.
Measurements should be recorded in millimetres (mm) and written as Height (H) x Width (W) e.g., 570mm H x 496mm W.
When specifying Right or Left-hand hinge drilling, imagine the hinge as you look at the door, from the front, with the door closed.
Hinge drilling is measured from the top or bottom edge of the door to the centre of the hinge hole.
Measurements must be taken from the inside of the door, as the outside often includes patterns which may lead to measurement errors.
Measure from the edge of the door to the centre of the hinge hole, then provide the size in millimetres (mm).
Remember, if you are making any alterations to the door size or position, this will have to be taken into account when specifying hinge hole centres.
These are provided in a standardised thickness/depth of 18mm.
If 18mm board is too thick, there is peel and stick matching vinyl available to suit most colours.
At 620mm wide, the sheets are available in 1000mm (one metre) lengths. We also provide 22mm wide pre-glued edging tape, which provides a neat finish to the edging of the vinyl.
Start by removing the small screws from the hinges on the doors, removing the top, bottom and finally centre. Make sure that you hold the door in position to avoid damage or injury from the door swinging when the hinge is removed.
Next, take the new door and drill the hinge holes if required. Using the previously removed screws, secure the new door into position.
