Spence Metal Door Frames are used extensively, and are preferred to timber because they are cost effective and have real practical advantages over timber door frames. Metal Door Frames are easily fitted during construction or can be retrofitted. They are easier to fit, more versatile, stronger and more resilient and provide an excellent surface finish.

Pressed Metal Door Frames are supplied complete with hinge and lock striker preparations, ready for installation in all types of masonry and stud walls.

Custom orders can be supplied at short notice and can be manufactured to any size or profile, standard sizes are available ex-stock
