Lietzke Adjustable Door Frames – Ideal for Precast and Masonry Openings

Group company Lietzke Doors has developed a new adjustable door frame ideal for speedy installation to precast or masonry door openings. The door frame includes sliding capping channels and adjustable jacking screws that wind out, pressing the capping channels tight to the masonry/concrete opening. The jacking screws are then screw fixed with masonry screws to the wall structure fully securing the door frame.

The jacking screws can be wound in or out prior to final fixing to set the door rebate square and true, no matter what the shape of the wall opening is. The wall openings can vary in opening size by 20mm or more and when installed the frame will leave no gaps to the masonry and not affect the door leaf size, making them ideal for use with standard size door leaves. The holes to access the jacking screws are hidden in the door rebate and capped with plastic caps. The location of these points are therefore not only hidden from sight but also tamper proof.

This ingenious door frame not only makes fitting door frames to irregular openings easy, but also the speed of install makes them overall very cost effective.

Frames are available powder coated, prime painted or raw and come complete with jacking feet, masonry anchor screws and frame hole plugs.

Lietzke Cyclone Door Unit Passes Cyclone Region D Impact Testing with Ease

Lietzke Doors, Australia’s premier manufacturer of portable switchroom door units, was recently asked to provide door units for buildings heading to the South Hedland Power Station project, located in the north west of Western Australia. The Cyclone Rating for this location is Region D with the terrain rating Category 2 which indicated the doors needed to withstand the highest wind and impact rating on the Australian Mainland.

Lietzke already manufactures certified wind rated door units for this region but now has passed the impact tested option as well. The door units were tested at Azuma Testings NATA certified lab with an impact test speed of 44 metres per second. The door design passed with flying colours.

Lietzke is now in the manufacture and delivery phase of 31 specialised door units to Mayfield Industries, manufacturer of the switchroom buildings for the project.

Rivers 420 Series Locks for Melbourne Remand Centre

The 420 Series four point lock was chosen as a part of this overhaul, but was required to be modified to allow the  existing mortice locks to be useable for daytime operations.

As Rivers locks are made to order locally in Australia, our design engineers were able to quickly adapt the standard 420 set up to suit the customers specified requirements.  This included adjusting the width of the lock, having the central cross bar lowered and vertical strut moved across.
