STEELCRAFT
Designed for institutional, commercial and industrial applications Steelcraft provides an impressive selection of hollow metal frames for virtually any wall condition or entryway requirement. Our focus is on the constant improvement of steel doors and frames, and it is reflected in our products. 

The F Series three-sided flush frames meet requirements for light- to maximum-duty applications for interior and exterior locations in commercial and industrial buildings. They are designed for installation as part of the wall framing sequence and may be specified and supplied as knock-down (KD) for field assembly prior to installation or welded for installation as a complete unit.

The DW Series Drywall frames are designed for light to maximum duty applications in both commercial and institutional buildings. Standard jamb compression anchors and a unique tab/lock corner design for knock-down (KD) assembly assure that the DW Series and K Series drywall frames install in minutes on finished drywall construction. They are ideal for light to heavy duty applications in commercial and institutional buildings.

The MU Series multi-use flush frames meet demands for light to maximum duty applications in commercial and industrial buildings. They are ideal for interior and exterior locations, for virtually any wall construction. They feature a jamb profile similar to that of the DW Series frames, but is designed for installation as part of the wall framing sequence. The MU Series frames may be specified and/or supplied as knock-down (KD) for field assembly before installation or welded for installation as a complete unit.  

The FE Series double egress frames are designed to meet requirements for heavy to maximum duty applications in both commercial and institutional buildings. They are installed at interior locations, and in virtually all types of buildings and wall constructions. These frames are specified and supplied as KD (knock-down) for field assembly before installation, or welded for installation as a complete unit. If clear opening width for cross corridor applications is critical, please refer to the DE Series frame.

The DE Series double egress frames meet all the design parameters of conventional FE Series double egress frames and is specified when cross corridor openings have the additional requirements of maximized clear opening width. The unique design of the DE Series frame allows for the use of swing clear hinges. This must be considered if your local building code has a minimum clear opening width requirement, typically 44".

The FP14 Paladin™ Series 3 Sided flush frames are assembly tested and approved showing tornado resistance to extreme effects of 250 mph winds for impact and wind load pressure, labeled by Intertek signifying compliance to ICC500-2014 and FEMA 320/361. FP frames are installed as part of the wall framing sequence and can be specified as KD (knock-down) for field assembly prior to installation or SUA (set-up and welded) for installation as a pre-welded unit.

FT Series 3-sided frames and elevations are designed to meet requirements for light to maximum duty applications in both commercial and institutional buildings. Although the most common use is exterior masonry opening, these frames are installed in both interior and exterior locations, and in virtually all types of buildings and wall constructions. FT Series frames are to be installed as part of the wall framing sequence. They can be specified and supplied as KD (knock-down) for field assembly prior to installation or welded for installation as a complete unit.

Typical frame elevations include:

  • Transom: door frame with transom bar and glass, panel or louver above door opening
    • Transom bar separates door opening from transom opening
    • Frame height will vary, but normally extends to ceiling above
  • Ceiling height: door frame without transom bar and panel mounted above door
    • Panel is normally same thickness and material as door
    • Frame height will vary, but normally extends to ceiling
  • Transom sidelight: door frame with transom bars and mullions dividing entire frame into door and glass or panel openings
    • Frame height will vary, but normally extends to ceiling
  • Sidelight: door frame with glass openings attached to one or both sides of door opening.
    • Sidelight portion may be partial height of door opening or extend entire height of door
    • Frame matches door height
    • If frame is greater than door height, frame is defined as transom sidelight frame
  • Borrowed light: four-sided frame without door opening, prepared for glass installation in t
