Single, Hinged Doors

by Julie

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.

  • This is just a regular ol’ door, opening to the left or right.
  • Single doors can be made in any style.  Those styles are:  flush, paneled, louvered or glass.
  • The photo below is a 6-panel Masonite door set in a frame.
