Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS THE DAY-LITE ON METAL TEK'S ENTRANCES?
Day-lite is typically 6 1/4" to edge of sill, but we can reduce day-lite if limited space is an issue.

 


WHEN SHOULD I USE METAL TEK'S GROUTLESS SILL SUPPORT ANGLE TO SUPPORT THE SILL?
The groutless sill support angle is an advantage when you have a shaft wall to secure to. It is often used in new construction and we can even fabricate to the entire width of the shaft if you wish to secure to both ends of the shaft. The groutless sill support angle comes assembled with the sill and the sill to jamb brackets. Gussets are welded for strength and slots for adjustment.

 


HOW DO I DETERMINE MY WALL THICKNESS?
To have a proper fit on the entrance frame, we recommend getting a measurement from the edge of the platform to the hall side of the finished wall. We will then deduct running clearance and finished sill to determine wall thickness.

 


HOW FAST CAN I GET MY ENTRANCES?
Metal Tek can usually complete your order in 2 weeks or less!
