I would just screw 2 sheets of 3/4 plywood together, add 1x2 to both edges and then add the fibergass. Then you would have a secure and fire rated door.
It's a good idea but I don't have all the tools for it. Thanks.I would just screw 2 sheets of 3/4 plywood together, add 1x2 to both edges and then add the fibergass. Then you would have a secure and fire rated door.
Thanks, I will be reinforcing the door with the steel reinforcing plate that wraps around the lock area. I will also add large strike plates, and 3" screws into studs on both strike and hinge side.It's an illusion that residential locks are secure. Best you can do is add reinforcing plate (search) for locks and deadbolts. It is a metal U shape channel. I haven't worked with solid core slabs for many years. I don't know which kind or type can be cut-anywhere types. You may have to ask the manufacturer (not the salesman) about how much to cut and the core material and such. May have to plan for best weather resistance.
I guess I will have to ask them, I went multiple times and nobody was in that department! Thanks.If you go with a wood door be sure to seal all 6 sides. You don't want the door to absorb any moisture! Custom order doesn't necessarily mean expensive. The big issue is the wait time. I have a custom size steel/glass door from my dining rm to the deck. I don't remember it costing any more than a taller similar door in stock.
