- Assembly technology
Door frames are sold in DIY stores are usually already assembled, ready-made, but there are also commercially available and their individual components(cut timber), to acquire the latter has one advantage - the assembly box will be fit for the required size of the doorway.Installation of the door frame with his hands - it's not very easy to take on and it is not recommended without a certain knowledge.Therefore we suggest to study mounting technology.
Everything you need to install the door
to perform self-assembly of the door frame, you need something like this toolset:
- set of bars (to be included door frame);
- level or plumb line (to avoid the appearance of bias);
- screwdriver or a drill with a special nozzle to tighten the screws;
- slats of wood;
- set of chisels;
- rags for wedges;
Tools for assembling the door frame
Have professional tool kit - it's ex
door frame assembly is carried out in several stages.
- Lay on the floor bars of the door structure.
- Inspect the material available and ensure that the shortest bar structure there are grooves (their presence is important for easy connection of all components).
- Gently Dock slots on the top bar, with side bars, and then bring down all of these elements.To prevent damage to the material using a wooden mallet.
- Fasten parts together with screws and check the reliability of the resulting structure.
- In the absence of slots in the short plank, all parts of the structure fastened by nails or screws.
- Bond doorframe Cut the protruding ends of wooden bars (so that they do not interfere with the assembly).
- Pay attention to the surface of the resulting structure of the door - it should be smooth and even.
- Check all corners of the design - it is important that they are straight.
- Make accurate measurements of the width of the upper door frame.
- Cut rail so that its length was slightly larger measurements obtained, and attach it with nails to the side rails.
- Cut unnecessary ends of the rack.
In the next step you will need to do the installation of the door hinge.
Installing hinges on the box
- On the inner side of the structure from the top edge, measure 20 cm.
- Attach the door hinge with a pencil and draw its outline.
- known that the folded hinge leaves a small gap from the door to the box (0,4 cm).Given the thickness of the loop, calculate the depth of installation.
- With the router make a platform for mounting the loop.Elektrofrezera If you did not have, you can use for this purpose a set of chisels.
- Similarly, make a seat for the bottom hinge.But remember that the distance from the lower edge of the structure must be 21 cm (1 cm is given to the lower gap).
- door frame, with mounted hinges attach to the door and will take place at the door marking the places where they will be mounted hinges.Arrange seats on the door hinge in the same way as you have previously executed them on the box.
Use a plumb when installing
- Make measurements of height the side of the doorway, and then drag the resulting size of the side rails of the door structure.
- Mindful of safety, gently lift the U-shaped box from the floor and immediately proceed to its installation into the opening.Use a plumb or level, carefully check the verticality of the box, squareness of its constituent elements, and the top horizontal bar.From the first frame may not "fit" into the opening (even if all your measurements are correct).But it does not matter.A gap between the opening and the frame can be easily and quickly eliminated by using wooden wedges or mounting foam.
- Once you set the frame for a place allotted to it, be sure to secure it.Screw the door frame dowels to soffit.
- Make sure you have gathered the door frame is firmly seated in the doorway.
- Delete temporary struts and slats, and do not forget to saw off the protruding part of the wooden wedges.
scheme of installation of the door frame
can assume that the installation of the door frame is finished.
Proceed to hanging doors on hinges and mounting frames.
As you can see, the installation of the door frame requires not only knowledge but also the experience of installation work and patience.
