Fire Rate 1 3/8" Metal Door

Fire Rated Doors  1 3/8" Thick
One product we distribute that always gets a reaction from out customer of "I didn't know you could do that" is in regards to the custom 1 3/8" thick labeled door instead of the more common 1 3/4" thick labeled metal door. 
In the commercial world, a 1 3/8" thick door is used to solve a common retrofit problem. If you want to change the swing of a door without changing out the frame, you can elect to do so with this 1 3/8" door that fits in the 1 9/16" frame rabbet using a full surface continuous hinge for an easy swing.
A 1 3/8" labeled door must meet the same requirements as a 1 3/4" door. It must have a minimum number or  approved hinges, be self closing & self latching. Distributing for one of the very few manufacturers with the ability to put labels on 1 3/8" thick doors lets us  stand out in the crowd. A solution for re-using a frame, rather then tearing out and installing completely new saving you time and money.

Hollow Metal Frames:
This image shows the correct way to install a welded hollow metal frame. Many installers use the welded on spreader bar to hold the opening width but that spreader bar even though it is close to the opening width is just for shipping purposes and you really need to use a Jig similar to the wooden one in the picture for 100% accuracy. Hollow Metal Frame Installation is the backbone to all material such as hinges, doors, closers, latch sets to work at optimum efficiency which makes your $$$$$ go farther.

The Existing Wall New Exterior Door Opening:
Material:   Block Wall
(1)-Hollow metal frame 3070 5 3/4 Welded 4" head EWA LH or RH
(1)-Hollow metal door 3070 flush 161 LH or RH
(3)-Hinges ball bearing non removable pin
(1)-Panic device with keyed lever trim handle
(1)-Threshold, wetherstrip & sweep
*This is the most common type of exterior door opening requested and depending on what type wall you have the only difference in material required is the header of the frame. In the above material list we have a  4" head which would go with an 8" block wall to course out with the joint & if you have a brick wall you would use a 2" header. Now all we have to do is cut a rough opening in the block wall to accept the welded frame and anchor in place by using the existing wall anchor bolts. Once the frames is plumb & square and the opening caulked it's time to hinge, hang & hardware. Now you have a satisfied Fire Marshal and a safe working environment. Apex Doors, this is what we do!!!!
