Re: How do you adjust a metal storefront door?

Depends on how the door is hung.

If it has regular hinges make sure that they are tight. Or see if the frame has been hit or bent.

If it is on a pivot or pin system of some sort, check to see if they are broken or cracked. If not there is usually some type of screw or allen head bold that will adjust the tilt of the doors.(usually located on the bottom pivot)

Re: How do you adjust a metal storefront door?

Just like Irocvette355 says. If the door piviots from the center of the door (no hinges visible) most likely the bushing in the top of the door is bad or worn. If the doors have butt hinges, then most likely the door subframe is bent. Although I have seen the doors themselves sag.
If you can e-mail me the manufacturer's name (off the lillte tag or sticker on the door) I can give you the name of one of the glass shops that use our products in the area who can help you out. Just can't get the name until Monday.

Re: How do you adjust a metal storefront door?

hey thanks for the replies. it's hung on a hinge that runs the full length of the door secured by about 22 screws or so. i don't see a way to adjust it at all and it's actually rubbing on the top of the door frame.

i'll check on the manufacturer on monday.

Re: How do you adjust a metal storefront door?

Ok, it is on a Pemco continuous hinge. You have one of the following problems:
1) The door subframe is bent or has moved from it's original position. You can put a level on the door frame and see if it is out of level.
2) The door itself has sagged. I think this is the most likely case, if the door is using 1" thick glass. Use a small angle square in one of the corners to see if this has happened.

thanks! i'll check that out monday. i can't believe it's a sag though because the door is catching the top of the frame on the side of the door opposite the hinge. odd.
