Default Surprise, another...?

Another door. This one is 5'6"x,8'. The pivot point is at the division bar. 4x2 tube frame, 6x2 tube jamb. I just glazed it today, and installed the rusted panel inserts.

Need to go back tomorrow and install the interior escutcheons. I got lazy and cut the escutcheons out of sheet steel instead of building them from flat bar. On the bright side, I have almost 64 square feet of rectangular scraps. Seriously, it saved a couple hours, and that is the break even point with the cost of the steel.Click image for larger version

That looks super nice. I like the whole window arrangement.

What kind of weatherstripping do you use on these big ol' monsters? You may have mentioned it before but I wasn't paying attention then.


They tried to rig up a door sweep on one of the bullet proof doors the other day and it wasn't a bit of fun. For some reason through the whole build, nobody noticed that the one leading from a bay into the warehouse didn't have a seal. The wind picked up just right and the air system started 'vacuuming' dirt in from the warehouse. At 800lbs, they weren't about to take it off the hinges and put anything on the bottom so they just cobbled up one of those little household rubber sweeps. I left after watching them break two drill bits trying to drill into it for screws.

It's your usual high quality work, Andy. It looks nice.
If I understand correctly, the door opens at the edge of the window, sort of.
So the actual opening is about 3 ft when the door rotates.
I think you have made doors of this type before, and wondering why they want a 5 ft wide door with a 3 ft wide opening.

Is it to do with sealing, or is it a local cultural thing?

Gerry, it is just something that architects started drawing up about 10 years ago, though I have rebuilt the same style at Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West from the 40's (?), so it's been around a while.
