Door Schedules

Door schedules typically indicate the model or mark, quantity, size, thickness, type, material, function, frame material, fire rating, and remarks. Examples of typical door schedules are shown in Figures 9.2A, B, and C. Sometimes tabulated door and window schedules are accompanied by graphic schedules— in pictorial form with elevations of the door or window types—to facilitate identification (Figures 9.3A and B). Door schedules may include information regarding glazing and louvers if appropriate. Commercial

door schedules may also include hardware and door frame data and key codes. In some cases the designer may decide to show the ironmongery in a separate schedule (Figure 9.4). Door schedules are generally longer and more detailed than window schedules. Doors and door function are usually critical to the success of the building. Doors are in constant use and serve many different functions, including passage, privacy, and security.

Doors may be identified as to size, type, and style, with code numbers placed next to each symbol in a plan view. This code number or mark is then entered on a line in a door schedule, and the principal characteristics of the door are entered in successive columns along the line. The "quantity" column allows a quantity check on doors of the same design as well as the total number of doors required. By using a number with a letter, you will find that the mark serves a double purpose: The number identifies the floor on which the door is located, and the letter identifies the door design. The "remarks or comments" column allows identification by type (panel or flush), style, and material. The schedule is a convenient way of presenting pertinent data without having to refer to the specification.
