Before you make a door made of steel, must be carefully measured the doorway and make surethat the wall is a masonry or concrete layer rather than a thick layer of plaster or plywood.

When the door is measured, it is possible to begin work on drawing designs.It certainly reflects the dimensions of the door, the height of the installation of locks and hinges, the position of the stiffeners and other design features of the door.

Note!If during the measurement readings obtained over 1500 * 2000 mm, it is recommended that the box door to make the team, adding the side or on top of the additional frame, wired metal.In private homes in the wide doorways add two additional glazed module, which not only strengthen the entire door structure, but also decorate the entire input group.

materials for the manufacture of doors, tool

  1. Sections (corner or profile square tube with sides of 40 mm) for the manufacture of boxesand the door.
  2. steel sheet thickness of 2-3 mm.

    Corners and steel sheet

  3. metal hinges (minimum 2 pcs.).
  4. Castle, peephole, handle.
  5. plywood and foam, or foam chippings and PVA glue for insulation.
  6. anchors, other fasteners.
  7. welding tool, Bulgarian, electric tools and components.
  8. solvent and metal paint, primer, brushes, rollers.
  9. Measuring tools (tape measure, square).

first option.Classical door

Classical door is directly from the web, a metal door frame, connecting their hinges and mounting plates that hold the door in the opening.

Step 1

Marking and cutting corner

marking and cutting corners

Note!The work must be performed on a metal bench.

Putting the door frame (box).To do this, cut into previously manufactured marking metal profile (area) at an angle of 45 degrees.Check the accuracy of cutting, connecting frame and applying joiner area.

can also assemble the frame of the metal pipes, having welded them together into a rectangular structure.At work it is important to check not only the accuracy of the connection angles, but also to make measurements of the diagonals of the structure in order to avoid warping.

All welds immediately treat Angle machine.It is necessary to continue to canvas tight to the box.

Step 2

Make a blank for the door frame.Use the metal corner.The gap between the door frame and the box will be within 5 mm - on the lock side and 3 mm from the other three sides.For convenience you can prepare metal rectangles stated thickness (templates).

Mark up and cut the metal profile.We put it inside the door frame.Check diagonal.If they match, then in one of the side profiles do door lock slot.Next, we catch the corners of frames welded frame and two on in several places around the perimeter.

At this stage in the door frame can be metal strips, which will acquireretainers for future door trim.

Step 3

Step 4

Note!At this stage it is possible to drill a hole under a peephole or through the central vertical profile and sheet metal, or displaced eye slightly to the side and drill a hole in a steel canvas only.

We produce fasteners for the door.Take the metal strips (6 to 10 pieces).They are welded to the door frame.Subsequently, these strips will be openings for anchors.

Step 8

Making internal decorative trim.For example, you can use cut to size plywood and secure rivets.Also for finishing mono use laminated plastic panels or battens.The latter option is especially important if the door will be installed in the bath.

can proceed to the installation by drilling holes in the previously welded steel strips and fixing the door frame in the doorway anchors.When installing it is important to use a level to avoid distortion.

After staining the window opening must be installed glazing and the outside of the door to fix welding grille, made by cold or hot forging.
