How To Install Steel Door Frames

Proper Frame Installation is Important

Proper frame installation is critically important for the operation of a door opening.

Misaligned frames can prevent doors from opening, closing, latching and swinging smoothly, which can then compromise fire-ratings, security and safety.

The videos below give complete and thorough instructions for steel frame installation in stud walls and masonry walls.  They are produced by the Steel Door Institute, a group that represents and sets standards for steel door and frame manufacturers.
