Residential Passage Doors
Single doors are commonly referred to as passage doors. Other types, like double, bypass and pocket act as passage doors-you pass through them. See photo below of a 6-panel molded door.
The “type” of door mainly refers to its structure or how the door will function. There are 5 different types: single, double, bifold, bypass and pocket. Mainly the type refers to whether the doors are set in a double opening, single opening and how the doors operate: swing, fold or slide. The names of the types are very commonsense.
