Tips For Taking Care of Commercial Hollow Metal Doors
It is important to clean the door on a regular basis to remove any dust or dirt from the tracks and from around the door. If you have heavy traffic or smokers in your property, this task may be more difficult as they track in more dirt and debris with their feet.
For exterior doors, be sure to have proper weather protection, such as weatherstrips/gaskets, in place.
Ensure that your hinges and door handles require no lubrication. If the hinges and handles need lubrication, ensure that you do a proper job of it by using a quality oil or wax, as the doors will never be this clean again after being lubricated.
Has your business premise been inspected for proper installation of hollow metal doors? In some buildings, where the exterior air is circulated, commercial hollow metal doors can easily rust due to damp conditions.
Ensure that you are using top-quality components to help support the doors in terms of strength and durability.
Take your time, since you are purchasing the doors, to place them in the most desired location. Take your time with the painting of the doors as well. Hollow metal doors are typically very easy to paint, but ensure you are allowing the paint to dry between coats and make sure you follow all manufacturer’s instructions for proper painting techniques and drying times.
Be sure that everything is going to be level with your final product before ordering the full door package. Many factors can change from an exterior hollow metal door’s finish when purchased sight unseen, including material thickness and overall size dimensions.
