Description

A single, comprehensive resource for all aspects of door HARDWARE

The Illustrated Guide to Door Hardware is the industry's one-stop reference for door standards, and the ideal reference guide for the Door and Hardware Institute's certification exams. A consolidation of all door and hardware standards and guidelines, this book eliminates the endless searching and guesswork that comes along with designing, specifying, creating, and reviewing submittals for door openings. Coverage includes physical and aesthetic aspects, local fire and accessibility codes, security considerations, hardware requirements, and much more. Each chapter focuses on a component of the door or opening, outlines all available options, and then gives you all the information you need to make the appropriate choices for your project.

  • Examine hanging and securing options for various door configurations
  • Select the appropriate operating and protective trim pieces
  • Consider the need for thresholds, weatherstripping, and gasketing
  • Learn the ideal selection and placement of stops, holders, and control devices
  • Explore aesthetic options, code requirements, and the language of specifications

Clearly illustrated and consistently organized, the Illustrated Guide to Door Hardware is an invaluable architectural reference.
