Entry Door

Post by Whimsical » Sat Feb 26, 2011 10:22 am

I am making Bi Fold doors for the main entry and need a door handle that is flush or very low profile.

Does anyone know of anything that may be of use. I have looked in so many places but have not found anything. It gets harder as the doors are only 25mm thick :? :cry:

Hi Mike

I wanted minimal hardware on my door so the door could be removed and stowed more easily without handles and locks so I mounted the

lock and handle on the door jamb with just the striker plate on the door.

Works OK. push to close on the outside and small handle to pull closed from the inside

Thats good lateral thinking, I will steal that idea with a little modification.

Use a double sided recessed handle and 2 of those spring loaded roller indent things to hold it closed and then mount a keyed entry bolt on the fixed part.

Easy Peasy Thanks for that



Mike
