The movement of the door can be determined simply by holding down the SECURE TEC (key side) or EXTERNAL of the door. LEFT DOOR: The hinges are on the left and the door opens to the outside of the room. RIGHT DOOR: The hinges are on the right side and the door opens to the outside of the room.
To determine the swing of the door when replacing an existing door, insert the door with the back of the hinges sideways into the opening, facing the frame on which the door is locked. If the door handle is on the right, there is a door on the right. If it’s on the left, the door is on the left.
When the door moves away from the viewer (slide the door open) it is considered a straight door. Left (LH) or Right (RH) which sometimes rests on the hinges. If the door opens to the viewer (pulls the door open), it counts as an inverted revolving door.
When the door opens and the button is on the right, there is an INTERNAL RIGHT DOOR. If the door opens away from you (outward) and the button is on the right, there is a LEFT DOOR.
There is a difference between the two. The difference is that the turn determines not only the direction and transmission of the door turns, but also the key side of the door. With right or left door, the key side is on the sliding side. With a right or left door, the key side is the pull side.

When the door opens from you into the room under consideration, there is a revolving door. If you pull the door towards you and out of the room you are looking at, there is a door to the outside.
A panel door is a rectangular panel made of wood, fiberglass or steel. It is the door itself without a frame, hinges or accessories. A curtain door comes with everything needed for installation and configuration. Panel doors are cheaper than curtain doors because they have no frame or hinges.
