Beveled Doors

Beveled doors include an angled cut on the side of the door. This cut is usually 2 to 3 degrees and is done down the entire height of the door’s lock side but may be on both sides. Doors with a square edge can be beveled in the field or doing the pre-hanging process. Some doors however are manufacturered pre-fit and beveled.

Beveling causes the door to have a tighter fit against the jamb when closed. When replacing a door only, a pre-beveled door will be installed faster as it needs minimal adjustments in the field.
