DOORS – Tropical Patterns
DOOR MEASUREMENT PATTERNS
Standard door measurements mean you can purchase already made doors. Alternatively, doors that vary from this size can be good design statement, especially taller doors as hot air can move around.
A standard entry door is 2040mm high x 820mm wide by 38mm,
Door frame (timber) for standard door is 2090mm by 900mm Door opening in block is 2095 by 905mm or build the frame into blockwork.
A standard internal door is 2040mm high x 820mm wide by 35mm Here are other door sizes; 2040x520x35mm 2040x620x35mm 2040x720x35mm 2040x770x35mm 2040x820x35mm (This is the most common size) 2040x870x35mm 2040x920x35mm
CONSIDER TALL DOORS TO ENABLE HOT AIR TO CIRCULATE
Normal doors are 2 metres high with many ceiling in tropical houses higher. This traps high heat in rooms. High doors reduces trapping.
CONSIDER OPEN GRATES ABOVE LOWER DOORS TO ENABLE AIR TO CIRCULATE
Open decorative grates of steel or timber above doors allow high, hot air flow.
SOLID DOORS TO COMPOUNDS ARE HARSH PRIVACY
In a community, open screen doors allow community interaction without eliminating security.
