    Are your doors on a front frame? I am assuming that with external hinges it would be, if it is the case, then measure the opening and add 32mm to top and bottom measurement.

    Maybe a photo of the doors and openings that you are working with will render a little more information for us to work with.

    Hi Ricardito,

    I find the manufacturers websites very handy for that sort of info. Generally you decide if you want the door to cover the front edge of the side, or finish flush with the front of the side, and then choose the matching hinge for that result. The website will have diagrams etc to show the allowance for gaps etc, as well as method of attachment and tools needed etc.

    Good luck,
    Peter
