Steve in Hollow Metal Doors
You can find all the FBC Wind Load approvals and documentation for all of our hurricane tested hollow metal doors and frames right here on our site...just use the link in this post and you will go right to our FBC wind load page. We made this into an organized list of what we have available and IN STOCK here at our Fort Pierce location. This is also what you need to submit to the building department for permits. Just click the one you need and print it out.

Steve in Specifications
Attached in the link in this post is a 4 page spec catalog from Premier Products. Premier hollow metal doors and frames are one of the 3 hollow metal manufacturers we use. Premier Products hollow metal is the one we keep in stock in our shop. In this attachment is all the specifications needed for an architect to specify these doors and frames and is also a good reference for GC's needing specific details on our commercial doors and frames.

Steve in The Plan Room
We just finished up the Saint James Academy in Fort Pierce, Florida job. The Academy is a Christian School and they had built a large addition. It was 52 openings total and we supplied all the doors, frames, and hardware. A nice clean job and all went off without a hitch. We beat out our most direct and closest competitor to land this job as well!

Steve in HM Frame Anchors
When installing a frame into an existing concrete wall, the frame will have to be "punch and dimpled" and have expansion bolts supplied. Make sure you get the correct size when you receive your product. The 5" bolts are good for a poured slab wall but if you try to use these in a block wall that is not filled inside the block, they will be a bit too long and the expansion part will extend into the hollow part of the block and will not grab anything. The 4" bolts are needed in this case.

Steve in Closers
The two most common ways to mount a door closer are either parallel arm or standard arm. The parallel (PA) arm type will mount on the push side of the door. The standard (STD) type will mount on the pull side of the door. Most door closers will be packed with the boot screwed onto the arm for STD mount and the PA bracket in the box as a loose item to be installed if needed. On outswing exterior doors, you would obviously install it as a PA type to keep the closer out of the weather.

Steve in Hollow Metal Doors
Replacing a hollow metal door in an existing hollow metal frame? Keep in mind one size does NOT fit all! Different manufacturers have their hinge and lock preps in their doors at different locations. So make sure to measure each hinge location from the door top (FDT) to the top of each hinge, and measure the lock FDT to the centerline. We have some handy forms with pictures for you to print at the link in this post that will make it easy for you.
