Door Standard


July 26, 2011

 Hunters Green Cluster has two approved options for front entry doors.  Homeowners may choose between flush (flat panel door) and full light front doors.  The original HGC door standard is the flush, metal door established in 1996 and remains an option for homeowners.  

In addition, the following door options have been approved as new door standards for HGC.  Images for flush, flat panel doors, full light (a.k.a.) full light entry doors and full view storm doors follow.  

Front Entry Doors:

1.     Full light or flush, flat panel door

2.     Material options: Steel, metal, fiberglass, wood or clad

3.     Color to match DRB approved door color palette for Hunters Green Cluster.  The full light door may also be Cordovan Brown.

 Storm Doors:

1.     Full view or self-storing

2.     Color to match front entry door or Cordovan Brown

Storage Entry Doors:

1.     Flush, flat panel only (side door in front alcove models)

2.     Material options: Steel, metal, fiberglass, wood or clad

3.     Color to match DRB approved door color palette 

Additional Information:

1.     The full light door glass can be clear or frosted (no colored glass) and can have internal mini-blinds.

2.     The sidelight glass must match the full light door glass. If the full light door is clear then the sidelight glass must be clear.  If the full light front door is    frosted then the sidelight glass must be frosted.

3.     Dimensions of existing "direct set" sidelight glass cannot be changed.

4.     Mail slots cannot be installed on full light doors.

5.     Mail slots for flush, flat panel doors are acceptable but must follow United States Postal Service guidelines.  Details can be found at http://www.usps.com/receive.mailboxstandards.htm.
