How to Measure Your Traffic Door Opening

When ordering your new Eliason traffic door it is important to measure your finished opening. The finished opening is the inside measurements of the door jamb. Eliason’s top notch Customer Service Representatives and Sales Representatives will determine the door size you need based on the door type and clearances you specify.

You will want to measure the height and width of the opening. We recommend you take three measurements for both the height and width of the opening.

For the height, measure from the floor to top of the door opening. Measure the left side, center and right side. Do not worry if all three measurements are not the same, use the smallest/narrowest dimension to ensure the door will fit in the door opening.

For the width, measure from the left jamb to right jamb of the door opening. Be sure to take three measurements, top, center and bottom. Again, do not worry if all three measurements are not the same, use the smallest/narrowest dimension to ensure the door will fit in the door opening.
