Double Doors - Hollow Metal Pairs

Starting at  $780
Nationwide Delivery

The active door of the pair is typically prepped for a locking device, such as a lockset or exit device. The inactive door (or fixed door) is prepped for flush bolts (top and bottom) and includes an astragal, which covers or closes the gap between the edges of the doors. Exit devices or push/pull hardware is required to make both doors active.

Astragals are used to close the gap between pairs of doors. The astragal seals the opening from weather, light, sound and, in some cases, flames and smoke. Security requirements dictate the appropriate application.

Astragals on fire-rated doors

  • Astragals may not be required on double egress or other applications with 90-minute or less ratings. Refer to the door manufacturer’s published listings.
  • Astragals must be steel overlapping type. Weatherstripping astragals rated for 3 hours (180 minutes) do not satisfy the astragal requirements for steel fire doors.
  • When astragals are used on pairs of doors equipped with fire exit hardware, a coordinator must be used to ensure proper closing and latching sequence.
  • An astragal may be used on a pair of doors equipped with a mortise exit device on the active leaf and a vertical rod on the inactive leaf.
  • An astragal can not be used on pairs of doors swinging in the same direction equipped with double vertical rods, since the astragal will prevent the operation of one of the door leaves. Since 3 hour (180 minute) rated openings require an astragal, double vertical rod applications can not be used in pairs swinging in the same direction.
  • Astragals can be either screw-attached or welded to the appropriate door.
  • Astragals are not used on pairs of doors with an open back strike.

flat-astragal Flat Astragal

Flat Astragals are attached to the active out-swinging door  (welded-on or screwed-on). Astragal must be notched in field for lock strike plate on inactive door.

z-astragals Z Astragal (Wrap-around Astragal)

Z Astragals are attached to the inactive door (welded-on or screwed-on) on in-swinging doors. These astragals include cutouts for flush bolts and lock strike. Shipped loose for field attachment. This astragal can be used on both fire-rated and non-rated doors.

2-piece-astragal 2-Piece Astragal

The 2-piece astragal is an alternate active leaf astragal for out-swinging doors. It allows for using the flushbolt and strike clearance holes on standard inactive leaf and providing an exterior bar type astragal. Shipped loose for field attachment. This astragal can be used on both fire-rated and non-rated doors.

brush-astragal Brush Meeting Stile Astragals

Brush meeting stile astragals are screwed-on to surface of each door of a pair. Typically used on pairs with vertical rod exit devices and/or push/pull setups.

Manual Flush Bolts

Flush bolts are used to secure the inactive leaf so the active door can lock into it. Standard, manual flush bolts are installed in the top and bottom edges of the door. When flipped, the top bolt projects into the frame head; the bottom bolt projects into the floor or threshold.

Automatic Flush Bolts

Fully automatic – inactive door is latched, bolts are extended when active door closes, door is unlatched, bolts retract when active door is opened. Constant latching – inactive door remains latched until the active door is opened, releasing the automatic bottom bolt and then the top bolt can be manually released. Inactive door will re-latch automatically when closed.

 Bar Coordinators & Accessories

Coordinators are designed for use on pairs of doors when one door needs to close before the other. The active door lever, located nearest to the active stop, holds the active door open until the trigger mechanism is released by the closing of the inactive leaf.

Dustproof Strike

Strike to receive the bottom flush bolt. Typically used when no threshold is installed but can be used with a threshold by omitting faceplate. Spring-loaded plunger returns to floor or threshold level anytime flush bolt is retracted eliminating the need to clean out the bottom strike.

The above double door hardware can be found in our Flush Bolts and Coordinators category.
