Doorware Scheduling

Basic Doorware Scheduling Process

Doorware Scheduling is the process of reviewing your building floor plans and door schedule, and assigning the appropriate door hardware to every door on the plan - consistent with its position, use and configuration. To schedule your door furniture, follow these steps.

1.  Identify interior and exterior doors and determine their operational parameters

Each door marked on the schedule should have a number of features relating to its structure, use and function so that correct door hardware can be chosen. These features include material, transom location, frame material, jamb material, handing, hinge type and door thickness. Other features such as security level and aesthetic importance can also be incorporated as a consideration. Door furniture selection such as door handles matched with different rose or plate options, locks, door closers, hinges, latches, master keying, special keying requirements etc. will be different based on usage and context. For example, passage, privacy and exterior security doors will all need distinctly different door hardware.

2. Select the style of your door furniture

In many projects the style and shape of architectural hardware can be strongly guided by the room, façade or construction of a house. Entrance pull handles and door handles are often the first consideration. Door furniture selections are reviewed based on the Building Code of Australia regulations. Specifically, fire rating, disabled egress and access, and general safety considerations are all taken into account in hardware selection.

If you are having trouble selecting a range or would like help to choose the right architectural hardware for the job, stop by a Designer Doorware showroom or contact us to make an appointment with our expert, specialist consultants.  You may also find inspiration in our Project Gallery which showcases high profile architectural projects that feature our door furniture and accessories.

3.  Match your architectural hardware accessories

Select cabinet handles; sliding door handles such as blade pulls, flush pulls or edge pulls; as well as matching bathroom accessories next. By selecting architectural hardware accessories that complement the shape and finish of your door hardware, you'll achieve a clean and seamless aesthetic for your project. Designer Doorware has a wide range of products to suit any number of door hardware combinations. These products are also available in special finishes, so there's no limit to the style of interior you can match.
