Best practices for door numbering when using Type Marks
Using Type Marks is a good way to standardize openings, but when a type mark (or even identical mark numbers) have variations (i.e. size or locking function) they may be need to be specified differently. Here are some Best Practices to consider.
Here's One Example:
With three distinct unit types, considering labeling the units as their own type and each door within the unit to to match:
- Prefix = the Unit: A1, B1 and C1
- Suffix = the door number: A1, A1.1, A1.2...., B1, B1.1, B1.2..., C1, C1.1, C1.2... for each unit
- Either the Mark or Type Mark parameter can be used
- This helps distinguish similar panels types with different operations like swinging or sliding, variations in size and different locking functions.
