Interior and Exterior Doors

So, what is the standard door size you ask? Door sizes in Australia equate to 2040 mm by 820 mm. This is the overarching standard which varies slightly for internal doors and external doors.

Interior doors

Internal door sizes are usually at 2040 mm in height and door width ranging between 620 mm to 920 mm. Options within this range include 720, 770, 820, 870 or 920. This of course changes depending on the application, but this is a good starting point.

Exterior doors

External door sizes are generally a bit larger. Starting at the general standard of 2040 mm in height by 820 mm in width, they can range up to 1100 mm in width.

Larnec stock a series of personal access door door sizes to suit your site’s application needs. As certain buildings and constructions may be larger than average, Larnec also offers 920 mm and 1100 mm width upgrades on industrial, shed, garage and commercial door ranges.

Standard door thickness is typically 34-40 mm thick for exterior and interior doors.

Standard Door Width

The aforementioned standard door widths are most commonly found in general interior and exterior doors, but what about less typical doors? We’ll cover some of the door sizes found in more unique doors. See below for some examples:

Glass door size: 2040 mm in height and ranging from 520, 620, 720, 770, 820 or 870 mm in width.

They differ from a front door in that a front door is specific to the front of a house or building and is the main entry point. External doors are generally back doors or side doors on the outside of a building. This is how they also vary from interior doors which are only on the inside of a building.
