Sizes vary slightly between manufacturers.

Hinged doors

Standard dimensions for a set of hinged patio doors is 178.15 by 198.75 cm (71 1/4 by 79 1/2 inches). At least one, but usually both, of the doors will open in a hinged set.


Custom doors can vary according to what you want. If you already have a space available, then choose the door based on size. Otherwise you can decide if you want three or more panels of doors instead of the standard two. Or choose interesting shapes like archtops.
