laminated or veneered door

These kinds of doors are almost the same, but their performance characteristics are very different.Veneered doors on top covered with a thin wooden plate, with the main frame is made of MDF or particle board.

addition, the material is afraid of water, resistant to mechanical damage, it is extremely difficult to give in restoration.The process of removing and replacing the veneer is very time consuming, so it's easier to buy a new door.

door installation technology

Process plan consists of the following stages:

  • installation box,
  • mounting loops,
  • door installation,
  • installation of locks,
  • installation casings.

From that, how much door frame is installed properly, the quality of work depends on the door.Therefore, this step is the most important.Boxes are of two types:

  • collected,
  • disassembled.


Assembled box set is hard enough as it is necessary to adjust to the size of the a solid box with observance of right angles is extremely difficult.Therefore it is better to buy options disassembled, they consist of:

  • side panels,
  • upper limit,
  • sometimes include threshold.

threshold - is not necessarily an element, its installation is suitable only if you are using wooden flooring.In terms of fashion trends, the thresholds are not relevant.

first step - installation of the top bar.You must install it perfectly straight.Right angle must be in relation to a wall, and with respect to the opening plane.Otherwise, the door will clobber.After calibration, the bar is secured by several screws.

further aligned side bars.If one of them has made a slot for the lock, I immediately think of which way the door will open.From the economy of space and ease of use, the door is always open to larger premises.Strips are calibrated in two planes, and then fastened with screws.


Then securely fix the structure by means of spacers.This may be a piece of cardboard or wooden pegs.Done in order not to violate the integrity of the process of the final fixation.Apply assembly foam for this purpose.Blow out the seams between the wall and frame must be as deep as possible to the foam completely fills all voids.

box finally becomes a day, then you need to check it is level.If everything was done correctly, then the bubble will show right angles, otherwise you'll have to carry out the correction.Any door only operate at right angles.

technology is designed for thin MDF wooden box or boxes.Installation of wide wooden box will be discussed in detail in the overview video at end of article.

next step is the installation of loops, they are of three types:

  • monolithic,
  • free,
  • marked.

Monolithic loop immediately fixed on the door.Their design is arranged in such a way that the door hinge can not be removed (one-piece loops), so they are immediately screwed in place.The advantage of this embodiment in speed.Besides, it is impossible to make a mistake in keeping the working angles.


free loops are included separately.Under them to do gash (if you want to hide the loop body flush) and fixed as it is convenient.In practice - this is the most time-consuming installation option.It is necessary not only to mark the correct position on the box, but also on the door, the slightest deviation from the right angle will lead to rapid rubbing and damage to the door mechanism.The only plus - easy replacement hinges.

Marked loop - is the best option, as they are separate from the main structure, but in the doorway and box markings have been made.On sale this option is not uncommon.

door installation process is to ensure that the need to put the door leaf on the hinge (in the case when it comes to free or pre-marked-up design).Thus, it should be checked to a chassis of the mechanism has been installed bearing.Originally lubricated hinges is not necessary, but if the door during operation will begin to creak, require using a medical syringe fill in the chassis engine oil or liquid lubricant.

The final part of the work - installation of casings.As a rule, they are sold as a finished product.If the proposed complete version for some reason does not fit, then buy a special MDF blank.For their installation needed miter box and hacksaw.The lateral and transverse part zapilivaem 45-degree angle, and then glued to the wall with liquid nails.Before applying the glue necessary to check whether the same seam.It is worth noting that the trim will be perfect only on a flat wall, if there are defects between clypeus and the wall will be visible voids.The easiest way to hide them with plaster (actually only in the case of decoration).

Box locks

installed without the door handles and the lock can not be used for other purposes.But this process has a lot of nuances that need to be considered in detail.We must start with the lock types, they are:

  • on the gate system,
  • a key system,
  • on a combined system.

Cheap doors are usually supplied complete with gate lock mechanism.This means the system by which the opening and closing of the lock is done by switching a special gate.Most often presented spherical shape handles with a switch.

shutter captures the lock pawl and prevents it from moving, and the mechanism is extremely unreliable, as is often the gate flies off and locks the lock.In order to open the door, you will need to use a knife.The process is not complicated, but quite laborious.This option should not even be considered as highly speculative savings.


compromise between price and quality - a combined system, they are equipped with one hand under the key slot, the other - the gate switch.from design issues are the same, but they will not solve the special tool, and regular key.It is important to set the lock so that the side with the connector went out into the hallway, in the event of sticking of someone is always able to open the room.

These locks are represented by different manufacturers and are made in different design decisions, but the cost is really high-quality products starts from 800 rubles.For this money, easier to buy a high quality locking mechanism works on the classic.

tapping procedure itself consists of three stages:

  • drilling base Lock case,
  • drilling holes for handles,
  • fixation mechanism.

Perform work needed in that order.After the tie still need fasten protective Garda hole for dogs.
