View Full Version : non-standard door sizes again
18th Oct 2011, 01:12 PM
hello users - I am trying to learn whether there is a legal requirement for external door sizes. I'm replacing a garage roller-door with bricks plus ext door and windows, but the exisiting steel lintel doesn't quite allow enough height for the standard 2040mm door. I don't want to have to move the lintel!
Can anyone help?

Get a block door and cut to size.

I thought we had already answered this for you, but for your peace of mind, I have looked further. All the regulations I have checked only make reference to minimum width. So if you need to loose 20mm or so it will not be a problem.

thanks ken, I did try to look further but couldn't find any compulsory standards. I'll go ahead with building a shorter frame and trimming a door.

keep lowering the lintel until you scrape the top your head .... then add a bit - or take little bits off the top of the door and test its height until it fits under the lintel - I need not tell you that taking it off the bottom of the door won't work, because of course it's too high at the top not bottom
:D:D:D:D:D let the flames begin :D
