Functional Work of Art

Even wonder what it takes to install one of our massive, wrought iron doors?  How about two massive, wrought iron, doors with sidelights and a transom?  We snapped a few photos during a recent install so our customers could appreciate the sheer man- and machine!- power it takes to get these gorgeous entry doors installed properly.

Out with the old, and ready for the new!

Our installer, Alex, preps the opening for the new door.

If you think these doors are heavy, you would be right.  It takes three men to slide in the frame and sidelights.

Time for the big guns!  The transom gets lifted into place with the help of a forklift.

Next step is to put in the massive double doors.  (unfortunately we didn’t get a pic of that step.)  Then just a few more hours of man power and “wallah”!
