Dunbarton Corporation REDIFRAME: THE QUALITY DIFFERENCE
Rediframe Pre-Finished Steel Door Frame Products are strong bywords in the building industry, with a product line established as the standard to which contractors worldwide measure quality. Dedicated to workmanship and long-term customer satisfaction, Rediframe Products has created a unique niche for itself. Rediframe is a fire rated, strong-as-the-wall door frame that is available in fixed and adjustable models. Rediframe Products is a division of the Dunbarton Corporation. HISTORICALLY SPEAKING
Ternes Steel Co., Dunbartons founding company, was established in post-WW II Detroit, Michigan. Beginning operations in a small building in urban Detroit, the fledgling company soon acquired several contracts that required larger production space. The steel bifold door was developed in 1955, marking the companys entrance into the building industry.
Slimfold, Dunbartons door division, continued to perfect the bifold door, which was the companys flagship for the next 23 years. In 1978, Dunbarton acquired a steel door frame operation called Rediframe, sealing the companys quest to manufacture a compatible frame product for its bifold door. Both operations are located in Dothan, Alabama. In 1996 Dunbarton Corporation celebrated 50 years of Manufacturing Excellence. REDIFRAME: WE FRAME THE WORLD
Rediframe Products Division is a leading manufacturer of commercial pre-finished steel drywall frames. Rediframe steel frames are chosen to outfit buildings such as The Venetian, Mandalay Bay, and Stratosphere in Las Vegas, Nevada, the Showboat in Atlantic City, as well as Marriott and Fairfield Inn properties. The success of this product lies in the easy installation, saving time and money. Rediframes continuing innovation in the steel frame product line has led to several patents: an adjustable strike; a special corner bracket to hold miters tight and true; and the Universal Hinge Prep, a hinge emboss that uses interchangeable back-up plates to accommodate template and non-template patterns. Because the generous design allowance virtually eliminates hinge binding, field adjustment is a snap! Rediframes newest innovation is the patent-pending adjustable ASA strike, a specially designed strike emboss and backup plate that allows for a 1/16" adjustment no grinding strike plates! The Name to Think of for Strength and Durability
We challenged Rediframe Steel Door Frames to some of the toughest standards in the industry! In a Comparative Impact Test conducted at ETC Laboratories in Rochester, New York, Rediframes design made the grade against hollow metal. 18 gage Rediframe 4-7/8" throat, 3'0" x 7'0" was tested against 16 gage welded hollow metal and 16 gage knock-down hollow metal, using an 80 lb. ram pendulum (200 ft. lbs. per impact). The welded frame withstood 310 impacts; the knock-down frame 154 impacts. Rediframe withstood 850 impacts under the same conditions. This test is similar to ANSI/NAAMM HMMA 863-90 Detention / Security Hollow Metal Specification. (See "Rediframe Specifications & Performance" screen for performance data.)
Rediframes unique application is soundly engineered to give you a stronger, more durable product. To prove its toughness, Rediframe endured a cycle test at the Warnock Hersey facility in Pittsburg, California. A 4'0" x 8'0" 188 lb. hollow metal door was installed in a 3-1/2" wall, 22-gauge single swing frame. During testing, the frame reached Level A 1,000,000 cycles with no movement and no wear.
Rediframes contemporary look blends into any room, and its unique, sleeve-the-wall installation provides strong-as-the-wall security. Rediframe is offered in a variety of colors; special colors available at an upcharge. Casing options give Rediframe tremendous design flexibility. Rediframe is offered with standard steel or aluminum casing, as well as the new S56 Steel Colonial casing (2-1/4" wide!). Rediframe can also be manufactured prepped for wood casing applications (supplied by others). Rediframe is used in virtually all door applications, both residential and commercial.
