Spartan Doors cares about the details in every design and fabrication, including a very important component in a door system – the door rebate. While non-rebated doors close into a uniform surface, the overlapping finish in rebated doors offers great benefits, some of which are about to be explained! For a quick overview check out our Door Frame Measurement Guide resource found on our website alongside a range of other useful documents. 

What Is A Door Rebate? 

A door rebate is just one piece of the puzzle for a frame profile alongside other features such as the door stop, return, and architrave. Nevertheless, it is a pivotal feature that is essentially an indentation channelled out of the edge of a frame. As the door closes, this groove removes the gap between the door and the frame, preventing drafts thus providing better insulation and protection. From a structural point of view, a door rebate integrates the door stop into the door jamb, interlocking the door and frame for an air tight fit. 

Why Consider A Door Rebate?

As briefly mentioned above there are also non-rebated doors which have no indentation and with the door closed you will see a uniform surface.  However, the alternative of using door rebates offers a range of benefits for the majority of applications such as internal, external, and specialised doors. One of the large benefits and considerations is Spartan Doors ability to offer a variety of rebate sizes depending on required specifications i.e. fire-rated and non-rated. 

The following specifications are used for our frames: 

  • Fire-rated = 45mm, 52mm
  • Non-rated = 40mm, 45mm, 50mm
