August 20 2013 WSU Boimed

Today at the WSU job we ran into a lot of hollow metal doors that would not shut. After some investigation we found that the frames had been incorrectly set on quite a few openings and that the hinge prep in the doors was also incorrect. I spoke with the Curries door rep, and we decided to try a field fix first rather than have the doors sent back to a shop. We added a small amount of shimming material to the side of the hinge away from the knuckle and this placed the hinge in the correct position on the door and allowed the door to shut correctly on most of the openings.
