Release the new door from the original packaging. Carefully open the package with a knife, trying not to hurt the surface of the door leaf, because then it will be difficult to remove the scratches on the laminated or lacquer coating. Check the scope of delivery. It usually includes the elements of the door frame and the door leaf itself. Accessories often have to be purchased separately.
Collect the elements of the door frame, so that it takes the form of the letter "P". It is important that the design had a regular geometric shape without distortions. Very often, grooves and special plastic inserts are provided for connecting the elements of the box, which should be hammered into the technological holes.
Insert the assembled box into the doorway for fitting. It is assumed that the old door with the old box has already been pre-dismantled. Make sure that nothing interferes with the installation of a new design, and its dimensions correspond to the opening, taking into account the technological gaps.
Now fix the box in the doorway completely, putting it on the building level. Racks and the upper lintel should be perfectly flat, without distortions in the horizontal and vertical. Alternately screw the details of the box to the doorway, using long screws. Dip the fastener heads into the wood and close them with color-matched plastic plugs. Fill the gap between the box and the walls with foam and seal the grilles.
Prepare the door leaf. If necessary, cut a lock into it, attach the door handle and hinges. For this part of the work, you will need a drill, a drill, a chisel and a hammer. Take special care when installing hinges. Drown them in the butt of the canvas, after removing the layer of wood, equal to the thickness of the plate. Ideally, the hinges will be flush with the end surface of the door leaf.
On the box mark the location of the loop and the slot for the entry of the tongue locking device. Make in these places the corresponding grooves. Hang the door leaf on the hinges and adjust its position so that the door opens and closes freely. Attach to the door frame as the response plate, which will include a tongue lock. The installation of the door is complete.
