We had some residential double doors and really crappy gas closing shocks that were just the pits. I checked around for pricing on commercial doors that look just like these but are normally made of plastic or metal and they are literally thousands of dollars, especially since I needed a double door and a single door. I bought the hinges online, needed nine of them, three for each door. They are spring loaded so that they will swing back and forth. I used 3/4” Plywood to make the actual door, cutting holes for the windows which are .25” Acrylic. The kick plates are .080” brushed aluminum and the push plates are painted white .080” aluminum. All of these materials are leftovers from signs that we have made so we’ll call them freebies. I painted them with a metallic bronze oil base. The double door measures roughly 60×80” and the single measures roughly 36×80. I just left the old frame from the previous doors in place and attached the hinges right to the middle of the stops. Rough cost $450 plus all my labor.
Thanks for looking.
