At finesse we use 142mm masonry fixings, as standard, for doors. This ensures a solid fix and means there will be no movement of the frame during operation and guarantees both security and longevity of the door.
Gaps between the door frame and the walls are sealed using both expanding foam and silicone. The expanding foam and silicone are also very effective at preventing movement and are also brilliant thermal and sound insulators.
