Cafe Doors - Installation Door Width Tolerances

Hello, do the cafe door hinges have the capability to be adjusted to match a slightly non-nominal doorway width?
I have a doorway that measures 31-3/8", could i still use a pair of 32" cafe doors? Or do i need to order 30" cafe doors?
What width tolerances are allowed by typical cafe doors?

The unknown variables are the hinges and the exact dimension of the doors.  You'll need to read the instructions for the hinge installation to determine distance the hinge requires between the door itself and the door frame.  That is probably going to be 3/16" to 1/4" plus you're need a minimum of 1/8" between the doors so they can swing.

Combined width of doors
+ Space between frame and doors x2 (per instructions)
+ Space between doors >=1/8"
= Minimum door frame opening
