Durable Design: How Prefinished Steel Door Frames Strengthen Projects

to take this course

Prefinished steel door frames are strong, safe and durable for a variety of applications. In this course, we discuss types of steel casings, installation techniques, and hardware options. We describe the fire safety and sustainability benefits of steel door frames. Finally, our team reviews LEED v4.1 credits, recycled content, and environmental impacts related to steel door frames.

Learning Objectives: 
  1. Compare prefinished frames and hollow metal frames for durability, efficiency, safety, and sustainability, focusing on the fire rating of various options and how they affect building occupants
  2. Describe how fire rated doors and frames made from non-combustible resilient materials can keep building occupants safe from extreme man-made and environmental challenges
  3. Identify proper techniques to install prefinished steel door frames and windows to ensure the safety of both the contractors and building occupants
  4. Review LEED v4.1 credits applicable to steel door frames and how they offer benefits including recycled content, minimize waste, emit low VOCs, and provide lower maintenance costs
