Door Hand Conventions

Left Hand (LH): Hinges on left, door opens into room
Right Hand (RH): Hinges on right, door opens into room
Left Hand Reverse (LHR): Hinges on left, door opens to outside
Right Hand Reverse (RHR): Hinges on right, door opens to outside

Door hand conventions are descriptions used when specifying door hardware, such as door closers and locksets. Door handings are based on viewing the door from the outside (secure/key side) of a space and differ based on the location of the hinges and the direction in which the door opens.

Swinging doors, also commonly known as hinged doors, operate by turning on hinges installed on a side jamb. When pulled or pushed, a swing door pivots around the jamb and the threshold. These doors require designers to verify required clearances of the door swing to make sure that there is enough space for the door to fully open. The swing door is the most commonly used door system because of its convenience in allowing access and passage.
