Install your new hinged door yourself in only 10 steps

Part A: Preparatory measures

1st step: Remove the old door in a professional manner. If you are dealing with two-part hinges, you can simply remove the door from its housing. In the case of three-part hinges, undo the fixings first.

2nd step: Remove the profiled architrave of the door frame. If it refuses to budge, use a spanner to exert a little pressure to help.

3rd step: Now remove the second, adhered door frame element. You will need a hammer to do so. Apply more pressure than in step 2 when you were using the spanner.

Part B: Carrying out the measurements correctly

Wall-opening width

Wall-opening height

Wall thickness

4th step: Measure the wall-opening width – to make sure, do so at several points (this also applies to steps 5 and 6).

5th step: Measure the wall-opening height. When doing so, take the floor covering into account (e.g. tile height).

6th step: Measure the wall thickness. When doing so, ensure you take the wall construction into account (e.g. additional plastering).

These aids will help you to install your hinged door:

  • Filler (silicone)
  • Cordless screwdriver
  • Phillips head
  • Screwdriver
  • Hammer
  • Shims and wooden discs
  • Spirit level (short and long)
  • Carpenter’s rule
  • Struts (2)
  • Two-component installation foam

9th step: Position the prepared door frame in the intended opening.

10th step: Fix the door frame element in at least two places, and then apply foam.
