Why do installers appreciate our adjustable frame?

Because the closure piece scissors in from the bottom making it simple to install as opposed to the time consuming precision alignment required by the competitors’ products.

What is the difference between a pre-hung unit and an over wall frame?

A pre-hung unit is an assembly of the “door side” of our adjustable frame with the door attached, threshold and smoke gasket in place ready to tilt up into the opening as a complete unit. The over wall frame is our adjustable with the door side and closure locked together with spring clips to keep them from separating during installation. It is ideal for “tapered” wall and rehab work where multiple wall sizes occur.

If a customer is using our frame with a steel entry door, we need to have special information. What is the easiest way to get this information?

Fill in the Steel Entry Prep Sheet which can be found in the Pre-fit Specification section of your Technical Manual.

Can the Timely frame be matched to a variety of different brands of steel doors?

Yes we can. We have great flexibility in changing the hinge, strike or deadbolt locations. We can easily adjust the width of a header to accommodate for either undersized or oversized non-beveled steel doors. Threshold details can be provided with either a full or partial notch. Special hybrid hinges can be provided to match the template pattern on our frame to a non-template pattern of the door. Of course, if the steel door has wood stiles, our standard hinge is sufficient.
