Installing a metal door, although difficult, is quite possible to do it yourself. It is advisable to install such a design together with an assistant.
First you need to dismantle the old door and remove construction debris. Then they apply the door frame to the opening, if it does not fit into it, knock out the excess part of the wall. Having achieved the desired size, they remove the garbage and insert the box into the opening. Align in level, to fix it, knock out wooden wedges and use mounting pins with a length of at least 10 cm. If there are no holes in the box for mounting, they must be made with an electric drill, the diameters of the pin and hole must match. Driving pins, you must constantly check the level of the door. Recently, heating stoves are often ordered, they are inexpensive.
After that, a trial canopy of the door is made. If there are bearings in the design, they are first put on, and then the door. It is necessary to check the level of the door leaf from all sides. The design should open and close freely and fit snugly against the box. After clarification of all the nuances, the door is removed.
Now you need to close the mounting gap. For metal doors, it is necessary to use a cement solution, it will make it more difficult for burglars to access the pins. The seal is made by hand from the bottom up. Remove residual mortar and smooth the surface.
The next stage is the installation of platbands that perform decorative and protective functions.
At the last stage, the door is hung, a special lubricant is first applied to the canopies. A seal is glued on the door frame and on the door itself, this will allow the structure to close tightly and without unnecessary noise. It is necessary to check the level of the door again by opening it to 45° and 90°, it must remain stationary.
