The Anatomy of a Madawaska Door

August 29, 2019

When considering the concept of your Madawaska Door, following a structure makes for great inspiration and gives you an understanding of our door’s anatomy. Although we encourage free-thinking design, it’s recommended you refer to a structure that will help guide you in this process.

The basic structure of every door contains two parallel stiles and two horizontal rails.

When considering what you’d like to insert in your door, utilizing various crossers can be used to divide the door horizontally into sections. A crosser can be located in an up or down position attached to both stiles. The crosser’s purpose is to horizontally divide parts of your door to input your unique designs.

Another form of creating sections is by utilizing uprights. The upright’s purpose is to vertically divide areas of the door. There are two kinds of uprights, which give you more control over how you want to design your door. A full upright is situated from the bottom rail to the top rail. A partial upright is placed either from a rail to a crosser or from a crosser to the adjacent crosser.

When you come across the word “component”, it refers to stiles, rails, crossers, uprights or sections and generalizes them under one term. Both crossers and uprights can be designed as wide or narrow as the customer wishes. Selecting curved or diagonal crossers and uprights is also possible, while it’s important to note full or elliptical curve tips aren’t available for select styles.

Below, we show a range of doors organized by a number of sections, each with their own classifications and customizations. As mentioned before, you’re not limited to these combinations. They can be used to either guide or inspire our customers.
