    The company Bouvet was founded in France by Mr. Gustave Bouvet in 1884. He established a long tradition of hand-made ornamental hardware for furniture, doors and windows, and as of today, most of the original models still exist.

    In 1978, Metal Style Bouvet was created in Canada to spread out that kind of ironwork French style product, while adapting it to North American standards.

    Even now, most of these ironwork products are forged or cut to preserve that French traditional design.

  • Toilet Door Hinge Requirement
    Category : Door Hardware
    Date : 02/08/2018

    Toilet Door Australian building law requires that in an emergency, the toilet door can be removed by someone on the outside.

    For example, in most cases, toilet doors must open outwards, slide, or be readily removable from the outside of the compartment. This requirement only applies if the space between the toilet pan and the door is less than 1200mm.

    An inward swinging toilet door with lift-off hinges will typically have a gap between the top of the door and the underside of the head of the door frame. This is to allow sufficient movement upward so the pin in the door hinges can slip out of the hinge-blades screwed to the side of the door frame or style.

    A suitable door latch should allow the door to be lifted upward and away even if it is in a locked position.

    The standard door thickness in Australia is....

    Mmm what is it?

    Depeding on where you buy your doors from, you will find the thickness of a door varies. I can't find reference to the standard door thickness requirement however there are off the rack standard door sizes, but even these can vary. Doors that fall outside of the 'standard' range (or not on the rack) are considered to be non-standard, and will either require custom framing and hanging, or will need to be modified to fit the space.

    But is there a standard door thickness?

    Lets not discuss alluminium or steel doors as that can create a whole lot of thickness problems.
