As multigenerational housing becomes more common, the need for Universal Design also grows. German Edge Doors from Bartels Doors & Hardware support Universal Design by increasing interior walk-through space: the doors are flush when perpendicular to the door casing, so they take up less space than a standard door when ajar. A rabbeted edge overlaps the casing, reducing noise and light, for increased privacy. The door comes in both standard U.S. sizes (7-foot and 8-foot heights and 1 9/16-inch thickness) as well as custom sizes. The hardware is concealed so hinges aren’t visible, giving it a modern look.
