What is a cased opening?
A frame without embossing for hinges or strikes. It is used to finish an opening where no door is required.
What are the two types of cased opening frames we manufacture?
Cased opening WITH STOP and cased opening NO STOP. Cased opening No Stop will be provided as standard unless specified otherwise
When is a cased opening with stop used?
For bi-fold doors where the stop acts as a molding to conceal the track and the spaces at the walls.
Sometimes cafe doors or double acting doors are used in a no stop cased opening. What do we recommend?
Since flush mounted double acting hinges will be used, a TA-25 reinforcement bracket behind each hinge is required.
Can you emboss a no stop frame for a strike?
Yes, either a T-Strike or an ASA-Strike. We also provide three different pocket latch strike preps on No Stop frames.
