This tool helps architects choose the correct door design and performance level for their projects. Start by clicking the building type, opening, and suggested door grade. Then you will see the most commonly specified door designs based on your criteria.
Step 1: What type of building?
Step 2: Choose the opening.
Step 3: Select the door grade.
The physical performance of a door is specified as level 1–4. The higher the level, the thicker the gage of steel. See ANSI/SDI A250.8 for more information.
Step 4: Select the door style.
Step 5: Choose the door design.
These are only suggestions. Always follow the applicable building codes and standards for your project.
