Door Weight Calculation Formula


(Online Calculator Can Be Found On Our Website: www.element-designs.com/downloads.html)

Door Weight = ((2W+ 2H)/12)X + Y + ((IW x IH)/144)Z

W = Door Width IW = Insert Width (See insert subtract chart below to calculate insert size)
H = Door Height IH = Insert Height*

Example: 24”W x 36”H AF002 Door with Satin Glass

= ((((2 x 24) + (2 x 36))/12) x .413) + .53 + (((35.6875 x 23.6875)/144) x 2.05)


= (120/12 x .413) + .53 + ((845.3)/144) x 2.05)
= (10 x .413) + .53 + (5.9 x 2.05)
= 4.13 + .53 + 12.1
= 16.7 lbs
