Exterior door for 6" wall - where to buy?


I've looked at Home Depot and Lowes, neither sells a fire rated steel door/frame that fits a 6" wall. Are there sources to order these kinds of doors online?

Go to your local lumber yard, they can order whatever you need.

I have had the same problem with stucco walls (thicker) and will be doing 2x6 framing for a room addition with stucco this summer. I think the OP will have a problem knowing what to order because when I go to the lumber yard they have 1/2 dozen width differing door jambs. How does one determine which size to order?

You measure your wall width and order one the size of your wall. Getting one a little smaller will just require adding a jamb extender to the exterior side.
