|Green Cay Village townhomes, condos, and apartments feature wheel chair and walker friendly entrance doors with 35 1/2" openings and interior doors with 33 1/2" openings. |
If a larger opening is required on the interior doors, they can be widened by replacing the existing 1-1/2" x 3-1/2" hinges with an offset door hinge.
These special hinges are designed to swing the door clear of the opening adding about 2" of additional clearance for wheelchairs and walkers.
Note: I haven't installed these hinges. However the measurements match up with the exception of a slight mismatch of the offset hinge corners, which are slightly less rounded than the original hinges. Thus fitting the hinges will require a few minutes work with a wood chisel to square off the space for the hinge corners in the door frame.
