The Basic Parts of a Door
Depending on what type of door frame you’re looking at, there are different elements that make up the construction of the door and its surrounding frame and trim. And if the door has glass (referred to as glazing) in it or next to it (called a side light) or above it (called a transom), there are even more parts.
The basic door itself (called, of course, ‘the door’)
The frame and trim around the door consists of two sections: the jamb and the casing.
The sill is the horizontal portion on the floor that the door closes against.
The door shown in this graphic has a sidelight; the area where the door frame and the sidelight frame meet is called the mullion. Mullion is a term for the jointure of any door/window or window/window combination.
There are, of course, other parts to a door, depending on the options you choose. Basic doors include the hinges, knob or lever, and locking mechanism, called the lockset. You may also have grilles, divided light bars or muntins, and more.

Why is there rust at the bottom of many steel doors and doorframes?
Kitchener winters constantly expose doors and frames to snow, ice and salt — creating a highly corrosive environment.
Is there any way to combat rust?
Exterior Door Frame Repair Kitchener uses galvanized steel doors and frames fabricated from carbon steel sheets that have been coated with zinc on two sides with a continuous hot-dip process. Rust inhibiting primer is then applied. Once installed, appropriate coatings can also help prevent and mediate rust problems on doors.
What is hollow metal?
“Hollow metal” is an architectural term for steel doors and frames. Steel doors and frames (hollow metal) are manufactured using steel sheets that are bent to create a hollow metal shell which is then reinforced and filled with insulation. These are most commonly used on the exteriors of a commercial building where fire ratings are a concern. Steel doors are relatively inexpensive and can provide ratings up to 3 hours.
What is a welded steel door frame?
A welded steel (or hollow metal) doorframe can be used for both interior and exterior applications. The frame consists of vertical jambs and a head. These 3 pieces are welded together at the corners to create a one-piece frame. Welded frames are assembled at our facility. Jambs are squared to the head, face and rabbet joints are welded, and all exposed weld marks are ground smooth.
Why are some door frames filled with grout or mortar?
During the construction of a block (CMU) wall, some contractors fill the internal cavity of a steel door frame with grout or mortar. It’s intended to provide sound deadening to the doorframe —but it’s typically not necessary and we don’t recommend it. Excess water from the grout filling process often causes steel frames to rust prematurely.
Will my new door frame be filled with grout or mortar?
No. In applications where a grout-filled frame has been removed, we fill the replacement frame cavity with fiberglass insulation. Exterior Door Frame Repair Kitchener will not grout fill door frames.
What is a knock-down frame?
Knock-down frames are not assembled and welded prior to delivery. They are sent as separate jamb and headpieces for assembly in the field by the installers.
