Fire Resistance Ratings for Metal Door Frames

20 Minute Fire Rated Door Frames are typically used in corridors where smoke and draft control is needed.  The minimum wall rating for a 20-minute door is 1 hour.

45 Minute Fire Rated Metal Door Frames are occasionally required in corridors and room partitions, as well as some exterior applications that may be subject to light or moderate fire from outside the building.

60 Minute Metal Door Frames are typically used to divide occupancies in a commercial building.

90 Minute Metal Door Frames are required in openings of vertical enclosure or egress through a building.  Typical examples of these openings include stairways and elevator shafts.  90-minute fire rated doors are also required in exterior door applications with a potential for severe fire exposure from the outside.

3 Hour Hollow Metal Door Frames are typically required in openings that divide buildings or separate a building into designated fire areas.

Specifying Knocked Down Frames vs. Welded Steel Door Frames

Knocked Down (KD) Door Frames are shipped in 3 pieces. Knocked down door frames are easy to install, easy to store, easy to move and have interchangeable parts allowing you to replace just a single piece in the event something gets damaged on site.

Welded Door Frames are available with face welded corners or a continuous weld of both the faces and the inside channel of the door frame.  After welding is complete the frame is ground smooth and primed.

Choosing the Correct Hollow Metal Frame Anchor

Slip-on, knocked down drywall frame with compression anchor

Slip on “KD” (knocked down) drywall frames are meant to wrap a finished wall and attach with minimal anchoring. Slip on “KD” drywall frames are stabilized by sill anchor or screws at the bottom of the frame and compression anchors on the upright legs. This 3 piece frame is designed to wrap a finished wall.

Knocked down or welded multi-purpose steel door frames with stud anchors

Universal stud anchors attach to both wood and metal studs. Frames using universal stud anchors are meant
to be installed during the wall framing stages. Door frames must be installed before the drywall is hung. After
the door frame is anchored to the studs, the drywall is slid inside the frame return. Universal stud anchors are
typically sold as a loose anchor that snaps into the frame throat but options for welded in anchors are
available.

Knocked down or welded steel door frames with T-strap or wire anchors for new masonry walls

New masonry walls typically require masonry wire anchors or masonry T strap anchors. Masonry wire & T strap anchors are loose anchors that are not fastened to the frame but fit tightly inside of the frame return.
On a block wall the wire or T strap anchor is placed in the mortar between several layers of block. Most frames use (4) wire or T strap anchors per side. Floor base anchors are also used to fasten the frame to the floor. Anchors for poured walls function the same but instead of placing a wire anchor between layers of block, the wire anchor is wrapped around rebar. The frame is then stabilized and held in place with 2 x 4’s until the concrete forms are removed. When the concrete is poured the door frame is backfilled with concrete and formed into the wall.

Knocked down or welded door frame existing wall anchors with “punch & dimple” prep

Flush mount frames with punch & dimple anchors mount flush against the opening and fasten to concrete, brick or block walls with masonry expansions bolts (sleeve anchors).  The punch & dimple existing wall anchor can also be supplied with lag screws for use in existing wood stud openings.

Custom Hollow Metal Door Frames

Custom Steel Door Frame Profiles are available for use in unique or abnormal wall conditions and door configurations.

Custom Frame Sizes are available to fit varying wall thicknesses, rough openings, door sizes, etc.

Custom steel door frame material types include cold rolled steel, galvanneal steel, galvanized steel or stainless steel in 16ga, 14ga or even 12ga metal thicknesses.

Metal Door Frames With Transom Windows Above

Transom Frames are commercial door frames with a glass pane or fixed panel above an operable door.  Transom inserts may include glass, louver vents or solid panels in metal wood or another material.  Removable transom panels are commonly used in industrial door applications when large machinery may occasionally need to be moved through the door opening. Contact your account manager with questions or to get a quote.

Metal Door Frames With Sidelights

Metal Sidelite Frames are commercial door frames with a glass pane or fixed panel at one or both sides of an operable door. Sidelite frames can be large or small.  In many office applications a sidelite frame may use mullions to divide it into many sections and span across an entire wall. Contact your account manager with any questions or to get pricing. 

Borrowed Lite Fixed Metal Window Frames

Borrowed Lite Frames are fixed window frames for commercial use.  Borrowed lite frames are made from the same material as a metal door frame, but are assembled as a 4-sided design and supplied with a loose glazing bead on the inside.

Communicating Door Frames for Hotels

Communicating Door Frames or “connecting door frames” are typically used to separate adjoining rooms in a hotel.  These door frames are meant to mount 2 doors, back to back into one single opening. Contact your account manager for support and pricing.
