Installing a commercial glass and metal door is a delicate process that requires care and precision. It is important to make sure that the door is properly measured before installation so that it fits the frame and is level.
Measure the width, height and depth of the door and ensure the measurements are precise. Once the door is measured, it is time to begin the installation. First, secure the frame to the wall using heavy-duty screws.
Make sure the frame is level and plumb and use shims to level out any imperfections. Once the frame is secure, attach the hinges to the door and frame. Depending on the type of door, use either self-tapping screws or lag screws.
Next, attach the door to the frame and check the door for level and plumb. If the door is properly installed, it should open and close easily. If any adjustments need to be made, use the hinges to adjust the door. Finally, install the hardware for the door such as the lock, handle, and panic bar. For extra good fit, I like to caulk around the edges of the top and base.
When installing the hardware, be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions as each type of hardware has specific requirements. Additionally, make sure that the hardware is properly secured to the door and frame. Installing a commercial glass and metal door can be tricky, particularly in windy conditions. Make sure to wear protective gear and take extra care when handling the door and frame. Additionally, be sure to follow the instructions from the manufacturer and use the proper tools and hardware when installing the door. With the right preparation, you can install a glass and metal door that will last for years.
