Refurbishment of an office entrance door made from wood with a steel frame

Due to break-in a wooden office door with steel closed frame made of metal was heavily damaged.

By massive force on several areas the door leaf and steel frame were considerably deformed. The surface of the door leaf made of MDF board with formica laminate was torn in several areas. The wooden door folding is fully torn along the profile.

The multiple lock that was also damaged was replaced by a simple lock during temporary repair. The steel frame with double rabbet shows clearly visible damages.The door seals are smashed and torn in the affected areas.

It is necessary the remove the damaged parts by means of a special milling technique to refurbish such a heavily damaged wooden door. It is mostly performed fully lengthwise on the affected profile. Afterwards, new wood of same type and grain is inserted and glued.

After milling the slots and pockets for inserting the new lock the surface can be renewed. The original surface made of MDF board with formica laminate, in this case a wooden décor, will be applied. After fitting the strike plates the door leaf is in mint condition and can be fitted into the door frame.

By using special adjusting tools the original shape of the deformed steel frames was almost restored. Smaller irregularities can be evened with two-component filling material. Afterwards, the frame is grinded, primed and coated with paint. The rubber seals are completely renewed.

After often necessary adjustments the door element is restored in form, stability, functioning and appearance.
