You want to build Minecraft double iron doors? Iron doors require a switch, and using only one door is quite simple - a button, lever, or pressure plate on either side of the door will allow you to activate it. Trying to do the same with iron double doors doesn't work the same, but it's a problem that can be solved with Red Rock. Isn't he a Redstone genius? No problem, we will make it for you as easily as a pumpkin pie!
Minecraft Iron Double Doors 1.14 | Double doors in simple iron
To get a basic set of Minecraft iron double doors to work, it is helpful to understand the concept of Redstone signals. Placing a button, lever or pressure plate on either side will transfer the signal to that side only and not the other port. Putting down the double pressure plates will kind of work, but stepping on just one of the two plates will only open one door instead of both.

Thankfully, the solution is simple and inexpensive. You will need:
- 2 iron doors
- 4 pressure plates or 2 buttons (or both!)
- 10 pieces of Redstone
- 4 Redstone repeaters
Dig a pit four blocks wide, five blocks long, and two blocks deep. Build a line four blocks wide and one block deep in the middle (the teal blocks in the image above). Finally, build two blocks on top and place the doors on them.
You will now have a free space one block below the doors on the left and right. Place a single piece of Redstone on both sides. Then, place a Redstone Repeater in front of this block on either side. Finally, place a line of Redstone dust connecting the rear ends of both repeaters on either side.
The signal to open the door must be sent to this rear Redstone line. You can do this by placing pressure plates on top of them, but you can also attach it to a button if you're worried about mobs activating the door inadvertently.
The Minecraft double door iron plane shown above works quite well, but what if you go horseback riding? You will hurt yourself every time you walk through the door, unless you make things a little bigger.
Minecraft Iron Double Doors 1.14 | Double doors and hatches
Double doors will work well enough for most situations, but what if a little more head room is needed? A 2 by 3 wide piston port is easy enough to make, but you may not be able to find the slime balls right away. Thankfully, you can make a secure 2 × 3 door using iron doors and iron hatches.
This version of Minecraft the iron double doors are a bit larger and require more resources, but it's not much harder to build. You will need:
- 2 iron doors
- 2 iron hatches
- 4 pressure plates, 2 buttons or both
- 14 pieces of Redstone
- 10 Redstone repeaters
- 6 torce Redstone
First, dig an eight by five long by two deep pit. Place a row of six-width blocks in the middle, then two more blocks on top of the ones in the middle to seat the doors. Next, place the repeaters that feed into the four outer blocks on either side, as shown in the image above (see the teal blocks). Finally, place a line of six red stones behind these repeaters, just like you can do with the other design above.
Then, place a Redstone flashlight on the final block of this center line on either side. Place a block on top of this flashlight and put another flashlight on it. Drop another lock on top of this one and then place a lock towards the doors. Place a Redstone repeater facing the open space where your iron hatches will go over the double iron doors. Finally, place the iron hatches in the open space.
This is more complex because the iron hatches open by default rather than close, so you need to reverse the Redstone signal to activate it correctly. Place the pressure plates or a button as usual and you will see the double iron doors open with the iron hatches following after a short delay.
