I’m building the cabinets for our kitchen remodel and have several double doors.
I don’t want to have a fixed astragal (faceframe) in the middle where the doors meet because in some instances the double doors are in a pantry and I want to have one large opening when the doors are open.
Nor do I want to put a fixed astragal on one of the doors because then you always have to make sure you open or close one door first and then the other door.
We have a china hutch that we purchased and it has some spring loaded hardware on one of the doors that then has a small strip of wood attached to it. When the door is shut the strip of wood pivots to look like an astragal. With this hardware we can open either door.
Does anyone know where I can get this pivoting astragal hardware?
I’ve checked Rockler and Woodcraft and googled it but I’m not coming up with anything.
Thanks in advance!
