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.
