Steel frames: dimensions and installationSteel frames are available almost everywhere. In the private sector, they are mostly used in basements, in the commercial area, the area of application is even more extensive.
They are appropriate everywhere and also prescribed, where a special protection must take place.

Depending on the field of application, different dimensions are available on the market. It depends on whether normal doors, double-leaf doors or, for example, swing doors are to be installed. The dimensions are between 625 mm x 2000 mm and 1250 mm x 2125 mm.
For double-leaf doors, between 1500 mm x 2000 mm and 2250 mm x 2250 mm are available. In addition, special sizes can be ordered, too
Custom-made products pose no problems. The production and delivery times for these should be requested with each order.

As a rule, steel frames with the associated doors are already integrated in the new building. However, it is also possible to install steel frames later, for example as part of a conversion. The products for retrofitting comply with the German construction standard DIN 18111.
Manufacturers have up to eight different profiles available, from which the desired one can be selected. The installation can be done by anyone who has some manual skills. For this purpose, appropriate instructions are available on the Internet, which explain exactly what to pay attention to when installing and which steps must be performed exactly.
