Types of Door Frames

There are two types of door frames,swing door frames and pocket door frames.

  • Swing door frames are the most common door frame and are used for hinged door installation
  • Pocket door frames are used when the door needs to be recessed into the wall. The door moves on a track within the frame. They are similar to sliding doors which leave the door visible after opening.
