Flange Frame Door Systems
A flange frame door system is a steel door frame that features a surface mounted flange. It is designed for quick and easy installation, since the installer simply tilts the door package into the rough opening and screws in the face of the frame on the wall. The Apache flange frame door system is one of the easiest doors to install since it comes pre-assembled with all hardware components and pre-hung with the door already hanging on the door hinges within the door frame. This door system is designed for installers, contractors, and building owners who are tired of assembling doors, and are looking for a fast and easy solution for man doors. The beauty of the Apache door system is that each door and frame is pre-finished. Normal hollow metal doors are coated with a rust inhibiting gray primer that is ready for paint, whereas prefinished hollow metal doors come finished in three different colors: gray, off white, or bright white. The main advantage of prefinished hollow metal doors is the time saving aspect. If your door application requires you to paint the door, a prefinished door can save you hours of labor. A typical hollow metal door paint job requires you to tape off the door, frame, and remove all hardware just to paint the door. However, if the door application requires a special kind of paint, your best bet would be to purchase the hollow metal doors in the gray primer finish, and paint them on site. Not all jobs require prefinished hollow metal doors. Many door installations use the gray primer finish as the final product, in fact that has become the standard finished look for commercial hollow metal doors. Prefinished hollow metal doors are very popular in residential home applications, where the homeowner is looking for a more secure door than wood, but wants to match the white trim work or siding of the home. For these reasons the off white or bright white prefinished hollow metal doors are very popular.
