German to English translations [PRO] Tech/Engineering - Construction / Civil Engineering / Door construction
German term or phrase:Röhrenspantür
This term appears in a tenant's specifications for leased office space and refers to the type of construction stipulated for the lavatory doors. My architectural dictionary has left me in the lurch here, and there is precious little information to be found online. There is a picture of one here, though it is not very aufschlussreich: http://www.depotverkauf.at/images/produkte/311141291645_gr.j...
Thanks much. I should have caught that. In any event, in the end I came up with the same solution that I now see (through the links you provide) David Moore proposed ("tubular core doors"), so perhaps I am not a total idiot this morning.
