maximizing space utilization
Our industry-leading, patent-pending design utilizes a bifold door, efficiently maximizing space in confined office layouts.
Swinging doors necessitate larger areas for clearance, increasing the booth’s overall required footprint. Our bifold door reduces this footprint by more than 50%!
Use the the slider to compare required footprints for phone booth door clearances.
Complying with International Building Codes
Planning on installing phone booths within a hallway, corridor, or a space that could be calculated as an area for movement? It’s important to comply with building codes and regulations. The International Building Code 1005.7.1 states:
“Doors, when fully opened shall not reduce the required width by more than 7 inches. Doors in any position shall not reduce the required width by more than one-half.”
Typical required width for means of egress is 44 inches*. Thus, when phone booth doors are open, a clearance of 37 inches is required. The bifold door’s shorter encroachment allows Cubicall to fit in more office corridors by complying with international building codes.
*Required width for means of egress is dependent upon building type. Many offices fall within 44 inches. It’s recommended that you reference and analyze your local building codes and regulations.
