You did it; you finally have a metal building of your own. You bought and erected the structure, you picked out all the accessories and you are preparing to move in. It’s a good feeling. But wait, before you start filling your structure with equipment, offices or anything else, there is one component that every metal build shares and a lot of people overlook. Commercial grade doors. The way you enter and exit your metal building is pretty important, so do your commercial grade doors pass the test? Or is it time to call Design Components?
Do you love your commercial grade doors (two times, baby)?
You probably already know that a door is much more than just a person-shaped hole with hinges in your building’s wall, but what you may not know is how complex a door or doors can be, and how your specific structure demands certain door-related needs be met. DCI offers two types of commercial grade doors, knocked down and pre-hung, and each has its own set of options and uses. A pre-hung door comes to you already assembled and in its frame, so this type of door is best suited for an existing opening that has never housed a door or frame before. They are also useful when replacing an existing door and doorframe, possibly one that suffered some sort of damage. Another benefit to pre-hung commercial grade doors is that since they are pre-assembled, you know they will be weather-tight and resistant to the elements. If ease of installation is what you need, a pre-hung door may do the trick.
A knocked down door can also be weather resistant, but since you must assemble the door yourself, it can be hit or miss without the right measurements. A knocked down door is one that can be scaled to just about any opening, and comes in pieces for on-site installation. These commercial grade doors may require a little more work on the installation side, but their customizable nature makes them a perfect fit for any existing wall without a preset space for a door. Like our pre-hung doors, Design Components can supply them in either white or bronze, and the frames can be custom painted to match the interior or exterior of your structure.
