    If it really is a metre wide, I presume you meant width not depth, you're going to have problems unless you can get a disabled access door wide enough, but I doubt that.

    Virtually no chance of finding a half height door. Just get one of the correct width and cut it down to the height you need.

    If it is a pressed panel (i.e. hollow) you will need to work out where to cut to get a sensible looking result and you will fit a new head and/or foot.

    Yes, lets say height because that`s the proper terminology. Buy a door and halve it.

    You're an engineer and don't know the difference between height, width and depth :(

    Steady on. If it is coming down from the ceiling, then 'depth' may well be a good description, as normal doors are considered to be measure/estimated from the 'floor' up.

    If there were no door there, the wall might well be described as the 'depth' from ceiling to lowest part.

    Just saying.

    A door is a separate solid shape and has a height = top to bottom, a width = side to side and a depth = front to back.

    You wouldn`t be the O.P. would you mandy, with a little nom de plume. :)

    Height = Bottom to Top.

    Depth = downward, backward or inward.

    It's a door not a swimming pool you cretin.

    So Bandymandy, every chippie is wrong, you are right. As we are on the CARPENTERS forum, I will ask. Does any time served carpenter on here, when measuring a door, refer to that particular measurement, as depth. ( Why am I even bothering with this clown?)

    I suppose I could start using "bandyspeak"...Depth...wideness...thickness. :)
