You will need these basic measurements:
• Width = How wide is the Frame Depth/Jamb Depth
• Length = The distance between the hinge and strike jambs (this is typically the door opening size i.e.: 3’0”, 4’0”, 6’0”)
• Height = The desired height coming off the ground no greater that ¾” (anything higher then becomes a trip hazard.)
• Latch guard is for added security purposes.
• Drip guard prevents water getting on the face of the door.
• Wall stops prevent the door from damaging the wall that the door swings towards.
• Kick plates are for doors where is someone is walking with their hands full often, pushing carts or another reason they would kick the door vs use handle.
• Weather stripping is for exterior doors to prevent drafts or unwanted weather from getting in and for temperature-controlled facilities.
A door protection plate providing protection against the lower portion of the door. 8", 10", 12" and 16" heights are typical. The use of 16" high kick plates is recommended for use on doors used by people in wheel chairs.
Rubber stops that are mounted to the wall vs. floor to reduce impact and damage from swinging doors and to avoid trip hazards from floor mounted type stops.
An aluminum piece that attaches above an exterior door or storm door to divert rain and water run-off away from the entryway.
Did you know that on a door with traditional butt hinges, 70% of the door weight is on the top hinge? The top hinge also bears the brunt of abuse when doors are opened beyond the stop device, resulting in kickback shock and eventual failure of the hinge and damage to the frame. This is why continuous hinges are recommended for heavy doors and for situations where doors are exposed to misuse. Continuous hinges reduce the factors leading to hinge failure by distributing weight evenly so wear and tear to the frame and door is reduced significantly.
In addition, continuous hinges:
• Increase security and reduce vandalism by preventing insertion of devices between the door and frame
• Ease installation by providing simple alignment of electrical transfers and of monitoring switches
• Reduces air infiltration by creating a complete seal from top to bottom of the door at the hinge jamb
A commercial hinge consisting of two full-height, paired and geared leaves. Each geared leaf rotates evenly from top to bottom riding on proprietary polymer blended bearings. The geared leaves and bearings are held together by a full-length channel cap. This assembly retains the smooth, clean lines of the door and frame, while easily supporting heavy vertical loads
A steel or aluminum plate completely cover the latch area protecting the latch area of a door from prying and shimming.
Fire doors must use fire rated/listed hardware components, these components must offer the opening the following:
a. Door must be self-closing (“listed” door closer or spring hinges required)
b. Door must be self-latching (“listed” mortised, cylindrical locks or “listed” exit device required)
Access control is the ability to permit or deny the use of a particular resource by a particular entity. Access control mechanisms can be used in managing physical resources, logical resources, or digital resources.
