Openings and Measurements Settings
In order to properly get the right measurements of your door, you must take into account that when using fastening polyurethane foam, you’ll need a 1.5 to 3cm space between the wall and the frame on each side, so it can be filled up with the expansive foam. See figures 1 and 2.
To get the desired door’s opening direction, please see figure 2.
If the wall’s thickness is smaller than the frame’s thickness, a carpenter or qualified technician must lower the frame until it fits.
If the frame’s width does not cover the hole thickness of the wall, you can always add a supplement over the frame in order to achieve the desired thickness and then, you can put the cover plate.
With a frame narrower than the wall, you can create a wel finished notched panel.
TAEDA doors, are interior doors meant to be set in good repair dry environments.
Their installation must be done using dry fixing systems, preferably with polyurethane expansive foam or Fisher screws. They must never be set using a sticky mortar.
Doors are delivered squared and regularized with spacers to assure proper functioning. Those spacers should only be removed once the door is permanently set in its place. See Figure 1.
It’s recommended to apply a coat of good quality, high density, white wood paint.
Sand down thoroughly with a thin sandpaper. If there were any imperfections, then apply a second coat in the same white color. Sand down again and apply two glossy coats of paint.
This process must be made on both sides of the door and on the same day, in order to avoid different moisture absorption between one side and the other. Furthermore, you must apply the same amount of base and paint coats on both sides.
Apply the very same rule for painting frames and cover plates.
