Inside Peek at Steel Door Frame Component Manufacturing
How Does the Steel Door Frame Component Get Shaped? · None The steel door faces are sheared from flat steel stock. This reduces the raw material to the specified size needed for manufacturing. · None Next the steel door components head off to a punch press. A CNC punch press has dozens of tools to make precision cuts for openings in which to place door hardware, light kits, louvers, etc. · None It's time to form it! In most cases a press brake bends the vertical edges of the doors along a hardened forming die. A separate press with multistage folding tools bends interlocking edges on the opposite door face so the two pieces can be joined. · None Finally, spot welding locks things up with vertical and horizontal edge channel assemblies. If it's a hollow door, a core is placed inside the shell. Further welding occurs around the perimeter to literally seal the deal.

My iron gym made my door frame loose! Why?

I live in military housing, any my dog just ripped part of my door frame off.
I know what you mean. I lived in Army housing in Georgia and Arizona. You can go to Lowes or Home Depot. Either you would have to measure the piece of wood that is broke and replace the one piece. They will cut the piece of wood to the length you want at the store. Paint or finish to match. It would probably help to take a pic on cell or digital camera so you can show an employee. Also, don't forget the golden rule. Measure twice, so you have to only cut once. But I do think that they sell an actual whole door frame already put together. You would have to know the size of your door.
Cat scratching door frame?
He may not be scratching to wake you up but scratching to stretch after waking up himself. You can place a scratching post in front of the frame so he uses that instead. You can temporarily tape the door frame so that it is uncomfortable for him and he will use the post instead. Once he is in the habit of using the post, you can move it slowly to a more convenient location but usually somewhere near his bed is comfortable for him.
Do you need a standard door frame to use the P90X Chin Up Bar?
i had to go look at what the bar looks like. the first thing i thought was to find a length of pipe that will fit over the each bar end to extend both sides and maybe then maybe wrap some duct tape over the pieces so the do not mar the door frame. i am sure i could find something at a home improvement store that would work.
What can I put on my wood door frame to stop my grand kids cat from scratching it?
I have lived with cats for 37 years and have found only 1 thing works every time. Give kitty something more pleasant to scratch. Cats need to scratch. Declawing is not the answer, so I am glad you did not mention that. Often door frames appeal because of their height, feel and strength. To protect the frame, you can build a casing which protects the frame and makes it uncomfortable for kitty to scratch. There are many how-to instructions on this online. I suggest offering kitty a log or tree segment. The natural smells of the tree segment will attract the kitty, and the strength, and texture will be perfect. Be careful about insects that live in trees though, make sure kitty is recent on all shots and is under flea treatment first. If that alternative does not work, many companies make cat scratching posts. They do work, though they are not all build to last. Carpet, rope, and cardboard are all coverings cats like. Some cats prefer vertical surfaces, while others prefer horizontal surfaces. (It sounds like your cat prefers vertical surfaces.) Try different things. You may have to train the cat at first, by taking it from the surface they are scratching to the surface you want them to scratch. Training is easy though. Reward kitty for scratching the right surface with a treat. Use sounds and unpleasant smells or touches (like a squirt of water) to deter them from the places you do not want scratched. Just do not give up. Your cat deserves all your efforts, even if it is a nuisance to you now.
Repairing a door frame my dog chewed on? Need some tips on materials and techniques?
To smooth it out, the easiest way is to use some quality wood filler. Just sand the door frame down until it's as smooth as possible, then use a putty knife and smooth the filler into the little holes. Allow this to dry completely and sand it smooth again (with a sanding block). Take a sample of the paint to Home Depot (paint and decor department). They have a machine that can perfectly match the shade and reproduce the paint, it should not take too much to paint the door (maybe a pint or so). I've done this several times and I rarely spend over $25 for the entire job. >>>>Caution<<<< most of these old house contain lead based paint, which is extremely toxic. Wear rubber gloves throughout the entire operation. I suggest buying some Ajax Grapefruit dishsoap to wash up (not orange). This will wash off any lead residue, oils or anything else. You can find this at Wal-Mart

I have a stained door frame that I want to paint white. Do I need to sand it down before I paint it?
you should sand every door frame before you paint it because if you do not all blisters and dents and dings will show up after your done. after you sand it you should prime it then paint it preferably with a semi gloss latex paint. if this is a bigger job than you want, replace the frame if it is plain looking. if it's ornate then you can take your time and do it right
Theres a door frame in my house where the wood is really starting to deteriorate (really old) and the door.
"old frame but well designed.expensive to fab." -This Is not this the casing (flat board that the hinges attach to)? sounds like u need to replace the door frame on the hinge side. U could try resin impregnation and/or plastic wood. If that's not possible replace door. Have doubts that scabbing a piece into edge of door will work as rot always goes deeper than U think. U should also look for the source of water that caused the rot.

What do I use to transition from floor tile to carpet between door frame?
In bathrooms , I ll only use a marble or cultured marble threshold. Many come in 4 1/2" wide to fit directly into the door frame. Just have to redo the carpet ( turn and tack) on the bedroom side. Or if you don t want to mess with the carpet. , find a sill (threshold) that works color wise and tile to fit. Leave the thresholds ever so slightly above the tile so if there is a water problem on the bath room side , the water will some what stay in the room and off the carpet. Any questions you can e mail me through my avatar and check my qualifications there. GL
Easiest fix for crooked door frame
First, be sure your door leaf is square. Old doors tend to sag, where the hinge side top gap is correct but the latch side gap is wide. Also, you will see the latch strike is low on the jamb's strike plate.To verify your door is square, measure both diagonals. The corner-to-corner measurements should be identical. the top hinge corner to bottom strike plate corner measurement will be longer on a sagging door.If the door is out of square, you can re-square the door, or you can re=hang the door frame to match the out-of-square door. You've noted neither jamb is plumb, which means it is very much vertical. You should re-hang your door. You will find lots of great instruction on hanging a door. Here are one I like:https://www.familyhandyman.com/doors/repair/fix-sagging-or-sticking-doors/.

how to replace door frame/outside?
Are you asking how to replace the moulding on the outside of the door? Or are you asking how to replace an outside door? Outside moulding is fastened to the door frame usually with nails and/or glue. Carefully pull it off. Replace it with new moulding. If you replacing the door, then remove the moulding off the inside and cut or remove the nails which are into the framing of the house. Then push the door outward. It may require hitting it with a heavy hammer and the use of a crowbar. The new door must be plumb and squared with shims to keep it from shifting.
Is the landlord required to replace a cracked door frame?
You may want to look into her lease. The landlord should be responsible for anything that get broken. However, the landlord thinks he provided a "quick fix" I would contact the landlord via telephone and see if they could get the door frame/door replaced. So, that your mother feels safer especially if she is home often. Also, check your mother's rental insurance policy they might offer some help as well. If you can not get anywhere with your landlord maybe have a new door installed with new locks and strike plates and send the bill to the landlord. OR simply call and ask if it can be deducted from the rent. . If the landlord objects- send some pictures to the city and have the landlord cited for building code violation. If they get one they will come back and check for more!
How to stop my cats from scratching the door frame?
Goooooooood mornin' m'lady! Well, there's the old squirt bottle to chase 'em away with. Feliway, as previously mentioned, can (strong "can") be halpful, but is very expensive and may not do much (not to mention it is a 1 room thing, so they could stop using it here, but start scratching there). A catnip post is a great idea.just put it right where they usually scratch and it should help. I have also heard, but not tired, orange oil. Might even be able to accomplish by zesting and orange and then rubbing it on the door frame. Apparently they do not care for it and should leave it alone. Worth a shot--and helps the room smell citrusy! You can not lose! Best luck with the good ol' kee kats!
