    BTW, i assume yall are similar to the US: We have a bunch of different clearance options, not just that one. So ours are all swappable, and they all check themselves against certain dimensions in the Door.

    Yep: Im on to it: I hope!- unless you are talking about different to ADA? If so, please tell and Ill do some more research.....heres how our Aussie ones are tracking:
    Doors - Accessibility Circulation clearances-clearances.jpg
    The idea is that in our door factory settings the user selects which clearance diagram suits (our clients are all around the globe - hence we report in the doors properties what the clearance diagram is based on). As well as this, end users of our Door Factory then have the choice to add them to the doors or not. Our client base is quite vocal, so we expect they will ask for ones they need: when this happens, we ask them to get the info to us, then we add the new standard.
    Hopefully we'll have USA, Australia and U.K sorted before the next release - If I can find the U.K info!

    Yep. Looks similar to how ours work. I'd ditch the a,b,c,d,e,f,g, though. It's not logical since it kills the alphabetical sorting. Just my two cents, of course.

    Thanks Aaron. We thought we would put the a, b, c in for the aussie ones, since that is how they are designated in the standard (We wont for the ADA clearances).
    But you're right, it doesn't actually add anything to the end user, so we might revisit this.

    Again, appreciate your logic checking - have a good one.

    I don't know how the US code differs outside of California, as that is where all our work is......but for us, we need to identify clearances based on the project typologies. For our housing work, 11A applies. For non-housing, we use 11B....which is in line with the ADAAG diagrams posted earlier. To that end, our clearances identify the applicable code. Still looking for the ideal way to name these nested families, but for now this is the best i can come up with.
