Continue reading as we present a list of four things you should know when installing Mikasa engineered wooden doors.

Fixing Door frames

Correct door fixation ensures the free movement of the door leaf, resulting in functionally seamless doors. When it comes to installing Mikasa wooden doors, consider the following:

  • The door frame should be installed at a distance of 2.50 cm from the edge of the masonry.
  • We recommend providing a gap of 12 mm (+/- 3 mm) between the door frame and structural opening on all three sides.
  • It is advisable to exercise caution while fixing door frames as the optimal gap tolerance for fixing door frames is 3 mm (+/- 1 mm), and any error can result in the twisting or bowing of frame sections.

Coordinating Dimensions

Mikasa provides factory-finished door sets (door + frame) which are ready to use, without the need for any resizing. This means you must provide accurate measurements of the prepared door openings; the fitting-in margin; and the allowance tolerances.

Aligning Prepared Openings

The alignment of prepared openings is one of the most vital requirements to ensure that the door fits perfectly into the specified dimensions. This includes:

  • Precisely crafting the prepared openings in compliance with the aforementioned coordinating dimensions.
  • The thickness of the prepared openings should be constant, within a tolerance of +/- 3 mm.
  • It is also advisable to control the partition thickness when installing architraves, without excessive scribing or trimming.

Undercut Tolerances

For doors, undercut refers to the gap between the top of the floor covering and the underside of the door leaf. Following are our guidelines for providing undercut tolerances:

  • For Fire doors and Smoke-controlled Doors: A maximum of 3 mm is the recommended undercut tolerance, however, this can be increased up to 10 mm with the help of a suitable threshold sealing system.
  • For Fire doors and Normal Doors: We recommend providing an undercut tolerance of a maximum of 10 mm.
