ImProPer door / Frame ClearanCe

Date:Feb 18, 2019

To insure proper door and frame function, the clearance between the door and frame must be properly

maintained. All standard steel door and frame manufacturers closely hold tolerances that result in a nominal

clearance between the door and frame of 1/8 inch. If this clearance is not maintained, interference and hardware

misalignment will occur.

Proper installation is extremely important in establishing clearances and preventing a multitude of potential problems.
