In this article we explain if you can replace a wood door with a steel door. Commercial wood doors are primarily used as interior doors, however in some cases they are used as exterior doors. Commercial steel doors by nature are ideal for any type of security door and can be used for interior or exterior door applications. One of the most common questions among clients that have wooden exterior doors is, “Can I replace my wood door with a steel door?”. The quick answer is YES! Let’s explain how.

Commercial wood doors use the same steel door frame common to commercial hollow metal steel doors. This steel door frame utilizes commercial 4.5” x 4.5” commercial hinge preps.
