Double door insight: Master and Slave
A flush bolt is often used on the slave door which enables this door to be closed and held in place and also to hold both doors in the frame when they are closed together. Flush bolts are usually situated on the edge at the top of the door (see image). There is the option to have a flush bolt on the bottom edge of the door as well, although it is important to note this will need a hole/mechanism in the floor to operate.
Double doors can have a latch or a roller ball catch to operate them, this is up to the client and can depend on how often the doors will be open/closed.
