    "No you can't hang a 40mm door in a 35mm rebate, because the hinges will not finish flush and would also adjust the angle of the door closing."

    "No you can not hang a 40mm door into a 35mm rebated frame first thing is it is not a fire rated frame. Second, the door will bind on the frame meaning it will not close correctly you could remove the stop laths if possible and re-fix after but only if it’s a non rebate frame."

    "You could do that, but that’s not how it should be hung. You should remove the door stop so the Door fits correctly in the frame. Also it would look awful."

    "Yes it can work, but it will be a little more than 5mm overlapping, good luck with them finished doors are hard to work with."

    "Hi Craig
    Not really, can you remove the door stop? If you can, remove it then hang the door and replace the door stop.
    If the door stop is part of the frame you would have to router the door stop back 5mm then hang the door
    Good luck

    "No. A 40mm door cannot be hung onto a 35mm door frame because once the hinges are on, the door will bind against the rebated door frame not allowing it to close."

    "You can gang doors after you have to move the door stop to 400mm thick to allow door closure."

    "Yes Craig it will work although your latch and receiver may have to move as well the extra 5mm or so."

    "No it’s not the right thing to do. Get a smaller door. Or change the door liner."
