Outswing entrance door in garage.

Are they available I haven’t seen any and it would be ideal for my needs. What about hinges I assume they are different. Any one have a good photo of one?

I did find some I think my opening is an odd size though. Florida I see requires out swing in some city’s. I did learn a few things thanks.

They are, but really you do not want from the living area into the garage, the door swinging out into the garage. Same goes for the door exiting into the outside world. Now of course you see a lot of basement entrances from the first floor, where the door swings into the basement, which it should not be.

Most stores stock simple exterior doors in outswing---they are commonly used in garages----seldom used for a house because a screen door can not be used with it.

I have an outswing door from my kitchen to my deck. Inswing wouldn't fit. My local lumberyard has a millwork shop. They made it. You can either spec security hinges, or screw 2 lags into the edge of the door, cut off the head with a hacksaw, and drill matching holes in the jamb.
