ASSA ABLOY AMERICAS UNIVERSITY says: “Unless you want your openings to compete with the Leaning Tower of Pisa as a national landmark, then you really want all your openings to function Plumb, Leveled and Squared. When a door and frame work properly, no one notices it. When it doesn't, it's all your fault regardless of your role or responsibility. If the door and frame are not plumb, level and square, your hardware can't do its job of providing a safe and secure operation.”

This session of Above the Threshold will discuss: how to check the door and frame for proper clearance and operation for the opening, review common problems and recommend solutions. We will also discuss the proper way to shim a door to achieve the proper clearance - a must for fire doors.

General Topics will be:

  • Proper door clearance
  • Checking frame alignment
  • How to check doors for bow and twist
  • Proper door shimming techniques
  • Recommended tools

Host:  John Hunepohl, PSP- Director of Education.
