Removing the old design
Remember, it should be done very carefully so as not to damage the doorway. A few points are made to file andend-of-century box is removed in pieces. Do not overdo it - because you simply damage the wall. Garbage will be a lot - much more than it might seem at first glance.
Assembling the door frame
One of the most difficult and critical moments. Why? That is how competently you perform this step, depends on the total amount of time it will take away the installation of interior doors with their hands.
The box is delivered in the form of three bars withallowances - two vertical and the horizontal. The size of the latter on the porch must be door width plus 6-7 mm. With regard to the vertical, they are the desired size for the vestibule - the height of the web plus 10-15 mm. It is necessary to make zapilivanie elements at an angle of 45 degrees. And to do this you need high-quality circular saw.
Then the short and long boards must be placed as shown in the figure.
Clamp assembly and drill under the aboveangle through holes of 2.5 mm diameter. Release the node. The length of the element should be to increase the diameter of holes up to 4.5 mm. Similar actions to make the other side. Pull the elements; taking care to avoid their displacement.
Box loops - important work
First, loops cut into the web. Prepare a pen and a tape measure and place the door in a convenient angle. Measure 30 cm from the top edge, draw a transverse line - it will be the middle of the first loop. Now take the "top card" (mother), attach it to the canvas, carefully align and draw a thin pencil.
Important: Do not forget to attach the loop and the end to mark its thickness.
Now you can proceed directly to the frame. Again, make sure that all observed correctly, take sharpened chisel and a hammer and punch, to begin with, contours, including the part that is intended for thickness. apply the "hedgehog" method for cutting a niche. The area inside the outline lightly "chop" chisel (strips about 5mm), but strictly on the tie-depth, then remove the strips. Voila - a niche ready.
Thereof is located in a loop and secure it with screws. Exactly the same manipulations to be carried out for the second loop.
Finished "to wield" with the web, you can starta sidebar loops in the box. For this, please also apply the canvas and given the necessary clearance, to make appropriate notes. All the rest of your actions will be the same as described above.
Important: Do not try to measure the distance to the loops in the box without the "participation" of paintings - "converges" design.
Installation box into the opening
Place doorframe in the opening, ensure the correct position of the blockin the wall. Secure it with the spacers and wedges so that some mobility still remain. The box must be mounted vertically on the level.
Important: even if the wall has a deflection unit still installed vertically. When trying to "fit" the design to the wall, you get only spontaneously opening or closing doors.
After accurate setting of a secure boxtough to knock out the wedges evenly. Having successfully reached this stage? So you can already say with certainty that the installation of interior doors on their own - quite feasible task and solved. Now certainly the case for small.
Planting leaf without distortions
Hang the fabric on the box. Several times, open and close the door. Watch how it fits on all sides, there are no distortions, even if minor. In identifying the "defects" should be re-adjust design. If the absolute (!) Procedure can be continued.
Proper foaming gaps
How to install the interior doors? Still wondering this question? You simply do not read the article. Otherwise, you would be interested in a completely different question - how to fix in the newly opening element of the interior? For the final fixation use assembly foam, namely filled into the gap between the frame and the wall.
Important: when cured foam increases in volume about 5 times! If the box is not in the lumen of the spacers, the material is simply her "mutilated."
Installation of additional elements
If the width of the box is less than the width of the wall must be installed dobornyh bars. It is necessary to wait for the complete drying of the foam. Manufacturing of doors on the order will help you get rid of this need.
Installation of casing according to the rules
Casings, having made all the necessary measurements, saw off at an angle of 45 degrees. Tag interface and pritvorochnogo pripotolochnogo timber - this is the beginning angle. Secure them with the finish nails.
Embedded lock - finish
And finally, the climax of the door mounting - Box lock. Made it in accordance with the instructions supplied with the fittings. The optimal location of the door handle - meter from the floor.
In fact, if you go deeper and understand the intricacies of the process, almost any action can be carried out repair yourself.
