A Shopper’s Guide to Glass Door 78 x 36 Right Swing

Finding a door to fit an opening that is shorter than the most common standard can feel like a challenge. Most building codes require passage doors (those that separate rooms and hallways) to be at least 80 inches tall.

However, if you have an older home or are looking to replace a closet door, which code may allow to be shorter, you may discover that the opening only allows for a 78-inch tall door.

However, 78 x 36 right swing glass doors are available, including pre-hung options from major manufacturers. This allows you to find a door that meets your needs and doesn’t require you to cut the door down to make it fit.

Door Swing

Doors come in either right swing or left swing options, but figuring out which one you need isn’t always intuitive. If you need to figure out if a right swing 78 x 36 glass door is the option you need, there is an easy way to check. Stand with your back to the door hinges, or where the hinges would be installed if there isn’t currently a door there.

Then, place your hand on the handle, or where the handle would be, and open the door into the room. If you used your right hand, you need a right swing door. If you used your left, then a left swing door is what you require.

Sizing

When you need a 78 x 36 right swing glass door, you may discover that there aren’t as many options at this height. However, 78 inches isn’t so uncommon as for them to be entirely unavailable. You’ll need to take care when shopping, as purchasing a door that is too tall and isn’t designed to be cut down means it won’t fit in your opening.

Some 80-inch doors can be cut to size if the need arises. Hollow-core and solid wood doors can be trimmed with the proper tools and some care. Alternatively, you can purchase a custom door in your choice of materials, ensuring you get the exact height you need.

Glass Options

You have a variety of options when it comes to doors featuring glass panes. There are multiple views to choose from, including full view, mid-view, and high view. Full view 78 x 36 right swing glass doors feature the most glass, typically spanning nearly the entire door minus the supporting frame.

Mid-view doors are about three-quarters glass while high-view usually only has glass on the upper half. You can also select from different kinds of glass, including clear, frosted, textured, or stained. Frosted and textured options allow light through while providing a level of privacy, while clear will allow the other space to be fully visible. Stained glass can give you a level of privacy, depending on the design and nature of the glass, though others do little to hide the other room from view.
