"This is not your grandmother's pantry door!"

Introducing the ultimate design in Hidden Doors, Hide-A-Way Door's Alpha Door. This is not your grandmother's pantry door, this is a design for your serious preppers who's top priority is concealment. Unlike standard bookshelf doors, the Alpha Door does not have swing gaps! No way of telling that this isn't anything other than a built-in bookshelf; add an electromagnetic lock with a battery back up in case the power is cut, and you've got the perfect hidden door.

All Alpha Doors comes standard with 3/4" cabinet grade backing for strength & durability (with an exception to Alpha Doors with one may mirror backing). They are available in all added options that Hide-A-Way Doors provides for standard bookcase doors.

The drawbacks: The Alpha Door is only available in an in-swing door (right or left). Some finish site work is required after installation to make the door blend into the wall and there is a small step over to enter a room (less than the max height allowed for stair steps.)

The benefits:


1. There is no special framing; the unit fits in any standard rough opening and we offer several custom sizes.

2. The coolest door on the market, handmade from real wood.

3. No obvious swing gaps. Total concealment.

4. 3/4" plywood backing adds strength & helps with soundproofing. Perfect for concealing gun/ ammo rooms, safe rooms, food storage, etc.

5.Specially designed pivot hinges transfer weight to the floor and not to the jambs making normal operation under heavy loads a breeze.

6. Alpha doors can be customized.

7. The Best Part: Custom built secrete wall units with hidden doors are usually built on-site by teams of men; a very expensive and time-consuming task. The worst part of that is every one that is involved knows you have a secrete room. Our Alpha Door design is built in our specialty woodshop in Morristown, TN, and ships all over the country and parts of Canada. The Alpha Door comes ready to install in the opening, however, some site modifications are needed. The specific design allows you to run your baseboard trim in front of the door with a small space above the baseboard so you can paint the space the same color as your wall. The stepover is lower than 8" (normal height of a step).                                            


Alpha Doors are now available in Single, Double, Pool Cue & Wine Glass Doors!

Only available at Hide-A-Way Doors, the Alpha Door is the ultimate hidden door specifically designed for concealment.


Most hidden door companies don't want you to know one thing, their doors are not really hidden at all, that's why they advertise their doors in the open position. Similar to normal doors, bookcase doors need a space (commonly known as swing gaps) for the door to operate properly, the Alpha Door's unique design conceals the swing gaps making it a true concealment door. For more about the Alpha Door vs our standard doors, please see below.

Hide-A-Way Door's Alpha Doors are now available in the Single, Double, Pool Room, Wine Bottle Door and The Alpha Door with optional one-way mirror backing.
