Supply 3 piece KD Knock Down Masonry door frames in both drywall and concrete block wall sizes
Modern steel frame door frames are great, they are stiff and resist bending. They already have the hinges on. They are compact to transport and can be easily assembled by semi skilled labour.
A series of tabs in the jambs poke through slots in the head and are belted flat with a hammer. Spreaders at the bottom keep them at the correct size.
You need to be on the ball with your selections though. When you go to the supplier to pick up the door jambs you need at least this minimum of information.
·Which hand? left or right opening.
·How many hinges , two or three.
·They come in different sizes and qualities.
·The height and width of the door it fits.
·They have different frame widths to fit over various thicknesses of walls.
With stud walls usually it is a carpenter that fixes the door frames. It may or may not be the same guy that fixes the jambs and fixes the doors. Either way, you have a bit more time to get them right than the mad rush when a team of Prima Donna brickies descend on you.
