Lesson 02 : Door and window fittings


  • A door is a movable barrier used to cover an opening.
  • Doors are widely used and are found in walls or partitions of a building, vehicles and furniture such as cupboards, cages and containers.
  • Door and doorways provide access from the outside into the interior of a building as well as passage between the interior spaces.

The door is used to control the physical atmosphere within a space by enclosing it. Doorways should therefore be large enough to move through easily and accommodate the moving of furnishings and equipments. They should be located so that the patterns of movement they create between and within spaces are appropriate to the uses and activities housed by the space
