## Introduction

Calculating the quantity and dimensions for swinging doors is crucial for accurate project takeoffs. This post provides a detailed explanation of how to calculate door and frame quantities and includes a calculator to automate these calculations.

## Calculation Details

The following parameters are used for the calculations:

• Door Width (W): The width of a single door in feet.
• Door Height (H): The height of a single door in feet.
• Frame Thickness (F): The thickness of the door frame in inches.
• Number of Doors (N): The total number of doors.

### 1. Door Area Calculation

The area of a single door is calculated using:

``Door Area = W × H``

### 2. Total Door Area

The total door area is:

``Total Door Area = Door Area × N``

### 3. Frame Area Calculation

The frame thickness must be converted to feet:

``Frame Thickness (ft) = F / 12``

The perimeter of a single door is:

``Perimeter = 2 × (W + H)``

Thus, the frame area is:

``Frame Area = Perimeter × Frame Thickness (ft)``

### 4. Total Frame Area

The total frame area is:

``Total Frame Area = Frame Area × N``
