Angled Doors and Under Stair Doors - A Guide to Measuring
Under stair doors can be a great way to create a new storage area or tidy up the under stairs area. And it's not just for under the stairs, angled doors and panels can also be used in loft areas or anywhere where there is a difficult angled space.
At Doors2size we make all our angled doors and under stair doors at our factory in Huntingdon so you can have them made to fit exactly. We can also supply all the necessary accessories including hinges and door handles or knobs.
All we need you to do is to measure up which is why we have created this guide to help you through the process. Once you've measured up check out our online quotation form to get prices for angled doors and panels and under-stair doors and panels. Then you can simply order online.
Measurement of Angled Doors - Single Door Layout
Single angled doors only require the left and right heights plus the width.
The angle of the slope is not required.
A simple sketch is very helpful.
Measurement of Multiple Angled Doors and Under Stair Doors
Mulitple under stair doors are a great way to increase the accessibility of your understairs area thus enabling you to use more of the space effectively.
We only need the outside height measurements plus the door widths and gap widths.
The gaps between the doors are really important if you get these wrong you will loose the smooth slope and end up with staggered door tops.
Under Stair Doors - An Example
Mixed style Lazio grooves and Contemporary profile, vinyl White Ash
To save door opening space each pair of doors is hinged with piano hinge, this also spreads the weight on the doors.
