Installation of doors for an interior with wedges of wood.

Doors Types for Interior.

From Wooden Wedges are going to try to explain how is performed the installation of a door of interior currently. You must first identify the different types of doors of wood found in the market.

  1. Acoustic doors. These doors are designed to reduce the noise. Be certified with a level of reduction of the noise expressed in decibels (dB). It more normal is find doors that are certified among them 21 dB and the 40 dB, although sometimes reach the 50 DB..
  2. Fire-resistant doors. Doors designed to withstand fire over a period would be. The more common is find doors that van from them 30 minutes to them 90 minutes.
  3. Entrance doors. In this case, the entry doors can be shielded, solid, or even armored and stable and also resistant to fire and acoustic at the same time. There are plenty of options in making when choosing a gateway.
  4. Interior doors in wood. Here there are three models of manufacturing, stable door, double Stud door and alveolar door. The solid would be it made with the interior in wood. The alveolar door made with what is known as honeycomb. The honeycomb is not anything but a network of carton forming grids that are glued on the inside of the door, the edges of the door incorporates a solid bar (usually pine) about 4 or 4.5 centimeters. The door of a double stud is equal to the door alveolar with the difference of that folded the thickness of them slats that pass by the singing of its door, i.e. instead of a batten of 4 or 4.5 cm., carries two slats. Thus this gate acquires greater robustness and weight.

Up to here regarding the types of a door by manufacturing. Do not enter details of models since it would be almost endless. Not going to enter the details of the production of a door since can vary depending on the manufacturer.

Difference between traditional installation and the current installation

The installation of doors of wood led to out a change radically during the half of the Decade of 1960. At that time appeared the so-called door (door block) block. This revolution was born in Germany and was extended to the rest of Europe during the following years.

To be able to understand the next part must define a few basic concepts of carpentry. The first talk of the frame. It is the wood of a door or window frame. In traditional woodworking, frames had a recess made swing (part of the framework on which breaks a door or a window) and at the same time were anchored to work. Then we’ll talk about the frame or subframe which is a wooden frame that is anchored to the pre-frame of work but lacks any rebating to swing and its uses in modern carpentry. In the facilities, current also appears the frame or hinged. This frame or swing would be a piece of wood recessed for welcome the leaf of the door to the close. Thus in modern woodworking when we talk about frame we refer to the swing, and when we speak of pre-frames, we refer to wooden frames.

In the method, traditional them doors are anchored directly to the wall of work. They used to anchor a bricklayer using wedges of wood, Plumb, and level. The siege was anchoring while rising frame of work. Then the Carpenter fit the sheet of the door to the frame existing, installing all the fittings and them flashing.

With the introduction of the block door now the Mason would have a wall. After the installation of the structure and the plaster of the pre-frame would the carpenter arrives with a block door. This door is mounted on the frame, already has been hinges and mechanized in the workshop. So the Carpenter would adjust the block door in the hollow of the frame frames and then installed them flashing.

The current installation of doors from inside

Nowadays professionals tend to manufacture block doors to install them to the frames. Is can perform the installation on a frame mounts current or also on an old frame after removing the recess of the glazing.

The method is simple. The door (door block) block is already machined and assembled in a finished wooden frame. We must anchor the frame (the swing) to the pre-frame using screws. For that, we help of wedges of wood glued with tail white (rear vinyl). We will use the Plumb and level to the correct placement of the set. Once anchored the shutters we turn to fill the joints between the pre-frame and the frame. For this, we can use different materials, from filling with more wedges and white-tailed, with glued wood slats, foam polyurethane, PuTTY or silicone.

After anchoring the frame, adjust the gate with wedges of wood and fill the joints between the pre-frame and the frame, it is time to place the flashing also known as welts. So we end up with an interior door installation.

We must remember that interior entry doors installation will need to expand the number of anchors using lag screws from the leaf to the frame. In the doors resistant to the fire fill them together with material prepared for that function as the placement of foam of polyurethane resistant to the fire.

The installation of sliding doors not you are going to explain with depth. But the sliding doors today are often mounted on metal frames or wood that pass through the frame of work inside and which incorporates a top Guide for placement. Also, would have doors sliding that run by the outside of the wall and others that hang directly from the ceiling. The mechanism is still a top Guide for where to pass the bearings that van fixed to the door leaf. The installation of this door is different to the folding doors from inside.
