Also commonly referred to as frames, doorjambs and final architraves are decorative components of the door panel perimeter but are often mistakenly considered as a single element.
So what are the main characteristics of these two fundamental elements of door design?
Both are produced and cut to measure by specialised carpenters in e.g. Tanganyika wood (ready for lacquering or varnishing in the colours of your choice) or in metal, if you opt for the installation of a glass door, for example.
Doorjambs and final architraves can be installed on either plastered or plasterboard walls, depending on the type of masonry of your house.
In the case of sliding doors, Ermetika also supplies them complete with anti-dust brushes and rubber seals, guaranteeing the durability and perfect sliding and aesthetics of the door leaf over time.
The difference between doorjambs and final architraves is well known among experts in the sector, but this topic may also be of particular interest to those who are spending their time choosing the most suitable doors for their needs within an apartment or any room.
How do they differ?
When referring to final architraves, this expression generally means the perimeter frame around the door panel. They can be made of either wood or metal.
The doorjambs are wooden or metal components that are positioned along the wall opening where the door is installed.
If you decide to use a sliding pocket system, the doorjambs will only be present in the vertical parts of the door opening, whereas if you opt to use a more common hinged door, the jambs will also be present in the upper part.
Would you like your home to have a minimal
and elegant style
or an important classic design
If the first option is your answer, Ermetika recommends installing a door from the Absolute line
(flush with the wall), characterised by invisible links with the wall and the total absence of frames.
If the second option is your answer, it would be better to choose, for example, one of the products from the Evolution
interior line, a classic solution with visible jambs and final architraves.
