What is the difference between a door and a doorset?

A doorset is a whole door system. It includes the door leaf, door frame, glazing, seals and intumescents, hinges, door furniture, finish, signage and door closer mechanism. It is defined by BS EN 12519 as “supplied complete with all essential parts from a single source”.

A doorset is designed and tested as one unit by the manufacturer. It is this doorset that is certified to the appropriate standards and issued with a certificate of conformance. Because a doorset is manufactured in a factory, it can be produced to tight tolerances under high quality assurance standards and rigorously tested prior to delivery to site.

In the door industry, the term ‘door’ is frequently used as shorthand for a ‘doorset’.
