Square Maximum height6/19
Our current spec for doors being square is; doors less than 24" - square within 1/16". Doors over 24" - square within 1/8".
Our problem is, up until recently our max door height was 49 1/8", but we now have a project where doors are ordered at 64 1/8".
Do we allow square within 3/8" for doors over 48"?
Note - these doors do have a center rail.
3/8" out of square - on the diagonals or from 90 degrees?
Either way, that is a lot. Are you making or buying these doors? Either way, well within 1/16" (diagonal) should be the worst you would ever see.
We are making them. I'm QC inspector, and one of the cabinet makers is arguing the spec. I feel like his argument is not in the best interest of the customer. That they just do not want to remake the doors.
We are remaking them anyway because they are also warped, but wanted to get this one clarified.
I agree with Kilgore, 1/16" is the most you should see in square even that is excessive.
Warp is much harder to control but still a door that has one corner 3/8" out of plane should not be accepted.
1/16" out of square corner to corner is horrible. 1/8" is beyond unacceptable.
1/32 is the max I allow for myself.
As a purchaser of doors I would reject anything that exceeded 1/32 out of tolerance.
