During the installation of the door, as well as during its operation, trouble can occur - the door, when opened, starts to touch the installed threshold. How to get rid of this problem and what to do?
It must be eliminated urgently, because the appearance of not only the door, but also the threshold itself deteriorates, in addition, the process of opening and closing doors brings inconvenience. The troubles of grazing the door sill can be solved in several ways.
The first way to solve the problem
This is the easiest, but quite radical way. For its implementation you will need:
- a small piece of wood;
It is necessary to close the door and conduct a visual inspection of the perimeter of the door. There should be an even clearance between the door and the frame, and its size should be the same around the entire perimeter.
If there is no clearance, mark this area by drawing a line with a pencil. The evenness of the line is provided with a piece of wood, while its thickness should be equal to the thickness of the lumen.
Then the door is removed from the hinges, and the problem area is planed along the marking line. Upon completion, process the surface and return the door to its place. If the door does not cling to the threshold, then the problem is solved. Well, if the door cannot be spoiled, what to do?
The second way to solve the problem
In order to use this method, you must have the slightest idea about the design of the doors. The main element of the door is the leaf or sash. The next element is the door frame, which is original for each door.
The error in the box, or rather, in the wrong installation can affect the incorrect opening of the doors.
The essence of the problem is that one of the fasteners of the beam will be pulled, and this entails a departure from the level and a skew of the doors.
It is necessary to adjust in level all sides of the box and tighten.
The third way to solve the problem
Door accessories: latches, handles, hinges. It is on the loops that you need to pay attention. It is the exact installation of the hinges and their final adjustment that the door touches the installed threshold when opening.
Their incorrect installation is in the depth of the drowning either in the door leaf or in the beam of the box. Sometimes it is enough to screw the screws deeper, however, this does not always work.
Most likely, it is necessary to unscrew the hinges and “bring to mind” the openings under them. You can use a chisel or grinding.
It happens that the hinges are not mounted correctly in the horizontal plane - a deep distance from the front of the sash. In this case, the loops are removed and moved closer to the facade of the canvas.
Each person decides how to correct the situation when the door is jammed with a door. It depends on many factors that need to be taken into account. And in order to avoid such a problem at all, it is necessary to entrust the installation of doors to specialists.
