  • 3 Can Svedex doors be used in bathrooms as well?

    The Svedex lacquered interior doors are bottom-sealed as a standard feature. This makes it impossible for moisture to permeate the doors from the bottom up. Therefore, Svedex interior doors can be used in bathrooms as well. 

  • 4 What is the difference between a rebated door and a flush-mounted door?

    A flush-mounted door is flush with the doorframe when closed. With a rebated door the notch of the door leaf overlaps the frame when closed.

  • 7 How can I best clean Svedex interior doors?
    • Remove pen, pencil and felt-tip marks with a rubber
    • Clean other dirt with household detergents
    • Use turpentine or benzene in case of extreme dirt
    • We strongly advise against the use of abrasives
    • Be sure to rinse the door with clean water after cleaning
  • 8 How can I best clean the glass of a Svedex glass door?

    Clear glass is best cleaned with clean water, possibly in combination with household detergent. Never use abrasives. 

    Satin glass is a special type of glass that has been processed on one side, making it opaque. The processed side of the glass feels a bit rougher than the other side. Because this side of the glass has been processed, we advise you to take the following steps when cleaning. These steps only apply to the processed side of the glass.

    • Step 1 Cleaning

      Apply detergent to the glass. Use a sponge to thoroughly clean the glass.

    • Step 2 Rinsing

      Rinse the glass with warm, clean tap water after cleaning. Use a sponge to do this. Make sure the glazing bars come into contact with the water as little as possible.

    • Step 3 Rubbing dry

      Rub the glass as dry as possible using a dry sponge. Rub the glass again using a dry microfibre cloth. This way, the surface will dry evenly.

      Note: Do not use a glass detergent that dries quickly as this will create “drying stains”. We also advise against using an all-purpose cleaner. Corrosive, acidic or abrasive detergents must not be used. Do not use glass detergent such as Glassex!

  • 9 How do I determine the size of a flush-mounted door?

    We advise having flush-mounted doors measured by a Svedex interior door specialist working at a point of sale near you or by an independent craftsman. This way, you are sure to get the best result. 

  • 10 How can I determine the size of a rebated door?

    If you plan to replace an existing door, it is best to measure the existing door. Take the tallest side (incl. rebate groove) to determine the height (see fig. 2). You can use the narrow side to determine the width (see fig. 3).

    rebated-door-size

    If you have no existing doors to measure, then do the following:

    Measuring the width of the interior door: start with the minimum measurement that you have taken (see fig. 1). Deduct approximately 10mm from that measurement to determine the correct width of your interior door. 
    Measuring the height of the interior door: take the maximum measurement that you have taken (see fig. 2).

    Any doubts? Get in touch with a point of sale near you and leave the measuring to an interior door specialist.

  • 11 How do I determine the direction of opening of an interior door?

    When you stand in front of the door and it opens toward you, the location of the hinges determines the direction of opening. If the hinges are on the left it is a left-hand door. If the hinges are on the right it is a right-hand door.
