What’s a Book (a.k.a. Slab) Door?

Let’s first start out with the basics… What is a Book or a Slab? A Slab is a suitable Glass Door for either a remodel where you remove and replace an existing door and your existing jamb is in good condition. Or, a Slab door can be used with new construction where your jamb is already in place, or if you’re purchasing the jamb elsewhere. There is no bore hole for a knob, no hinge cut outs, and no jamb.
