Rebated V’s Door Pair with T-section
The Difference between a Rebated Door Pair and a Door Pair with T-section/Pair Maker
There are a number of ways you can create a door pair – it’s worth looking at the options before you go ahead. Also, you may want to enlist the help of a professional joiner, as ensuring both doors are perfectly lined up is vital when it comes to achieving a great finish.
What is a Rebated Door Pair?
The word “rebate” in joinery terms relates to allowing the two doors to overlap where the meeting rails of the doors join when closed. Machining a rebate is when half the ‘thickness’ of the door is channelled out to allow the doors to interlock.
A rebated door pair has a naturally embedded lip where the 2 doors meet called a rebated meeting stile. Because of this, the doors appear more flush and solid than using a door pair maker. Green Tree Door Rebated Doors feature an embedded lip, similar to 2 connecting L shapes that create a master door and a slave. As a result, this allows the master to open outwards and close freely without any interaction with the slave door. Please note when opening inward, the right-hand door pushes first.
