A COMMITMENT TO SERVICE AND QUALITY
It is extremely gratifying to us to know that our products are recognized by
architects, interior designers and contractors nationwide for their outstanding
quality and design flexibility for interior drywall construction. We are
committed to continuing to meet this responsibility - from management to
manufacturing - by maximizing efficiency and service to our customers without
MAINTAINING MAXIMUM OPERATING EFFICIENCY
Located in the suburbs of Los Angeles, our 75,000 square foot
state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is capable of manufacturing over 2,600
frames per day. Along with our stocking warehouse in Cincinnati, we are within
easy reach of your construction projects. These facilities have been
specifically engineered for fast, accurate handling of orders and shipments.
PRODUCTS YOU CAN COUNT ON
Timely provides 5 different profiles of casings in steel, aluminum and PVC. In
addition, a choice of wood trims, supplied by others, can easily be fastened to
our steel door frame. Timely offers the advantage of a patented, sustained clip
system which holds the trim securely to the wall creating true and tight miters.
PERFORMANCE YOU NEED
Timely frames are adaptable to many different wall sizes and conditions in both
commercial and residential projects. The frame sleeves quickly over the wall and
attaches in minutes for savings in both labor and materials. Because the frames
are delivered prefinished, they can be installed after the walls are painted. A
sturdy, factory controlled baked-on polyester coating assures maximum durability
and impact resistance - unmatched by any field painting.
VARIETY OF STANDARD AND CUSTOM COLORS
Timely frames are available in 7 standard colors, 24 pre-matched colors and
unlimited custom matching. With Timely prefinished frames, you save on painting
costs and eliminate the risk of inadequate prep work and the hassle of messy
spills, poor touch-ups and work disruption common with job-site painting.
STRENGTH AND INTEGRITY
The Timely door frame system meets or exceeds the strength of 3-piece hollow
metal KD frames. In laboratory tests, our frames easily held a 500 pound door -
a demonstration of Timely’s advanced engineering that features a uniquely
designed wall anchoring system plus hinge reinforcement plates with 12 gauge
FULL 90-MINUTE FIRE RATING
You can count on Timely frames to measure up to your every design requirement
including fire ratings. Timely frames can retain a full 90 minute fire rating.
The fire rating for borrowed lites is up to 60 minutes, sidelites up to 45
PARTNERS IN PROGRESS
It has always been our objective to be a dependable partner in progress
to our customers, and we are dedicated to keeping pace with every design and
technological advancement which affects us and those we serve.
THE TOTAL OPENING CONCEPT
The Timely total opening system is designed to combine door frame, door,
hardware and accessories, factory finished and ready to install as a modular
unit. Doors are purchased from any major door manufacturer premachined to Timely
specifications. Premachining includes preparing doors for hinges and hardware
plus sizing to the required clearances and beveling. Frames are manufactured in
almost every standard wall size, giving this system tremendous flexibility from
specification through installation stages.
Timely prefinished door frames are constructed of either 18, 20 or 22 gauge cold
rolled steel to insure superior strength and impact resistance. Unlike
traditional wood frames, Timely frames gain strength at the corners. Patented
corner pieces hold casings in place for perfect miters every time. Frames
feature a 14 gauge reinforcing plate for added hinge support.
Our difference is the anchorage. Timely frames are solidly anchored every
11 inches, directly into wood or metal studs. This method provides a level of
structural integrity unmatched by conventional wooden or freestanding hollow
metal door frames. The installed Timely frame becomes an integral,
maintenance-free part of the wall structure.
Several tests have been performed comparing the anchorage of Timely frames to
traditional steel frames. Written reports of these test results are available
upon request. These tests clearly show the Timely frame to exceed hollow
metal frames in its ability to support heavy doors.
Frame strength and precision fit are essential elements in providing a
secured entry system. By combining a Timely frame with a solid core door and
deadbolt, the toughest entry level security requirements are met. Frames and
doors are easily prepared for use with special locks and other security devices.
The versatility of the Timely prefinished steel door frame system allows the
system to be used in virtually all types of construction. The full spectrum of
buildings from luxury hotels, high rise commercial structures, to hospitals,
nursing homes, multi-family and single family residential developments are met
with equal benefits in performance and economy. Our Basic Frame concept
allows total design flexibility. By combining any of our painted or metal finish
frames with your choice of casings, an unlimited variety of colors and visual
effects can be achieved.
Our Basic Frame with aluminum snap-on casing (Timely II) offers the
aesthetic beauty of aluminum with the integrity of steel. It retains the full
range of fire ratings up to 90 minutes – priced dramatically lower than an all
Timely also offers an adjustable prefinished door frame with a
3-3/4" – 9-1/8" range to meet any odd wall condition.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
Timely prefinished frames are so easy to install that almost any tradesman,
regardless of door hanging experience, can learn to install the Timely frame in
a matter of minutes. The installation technique is equally adaptable to wood
stud, metal stud, solid gypsum or demountable partition systems. The average
installer can complete a frame and door installation in less than 15 minutes.
Installation video available upon request.
The Timely frame is always installed with the door. The door acts as a
template and the frame is adjusted to the door. Adjustment for precise and final
fit is made with a screwdriver or awl through alignment slots in the frame. The
casing then snaps on to conceal all fasteners. Aligning the frame to the door
and securing the adjustable strike assures a precise and rattle free
installation every time.
1. Sleeve Timely frame over finished wall. Do not fasten to stud yet.
2. Hang premachined door and adjust frame for precise fit. Fasten frame to wall.
3. Snap on casing to conceal fasteners and to complete job.
By utilizing Timely prefinished steel frames and premachined doors, the need for
costly jobsite labor is virtually eliminated. It is no longer necessary for
skilled tradesmen to fit the door and prepare for hardware. Finishing costs are
greatly reduced because frames and doors are factory prefinished allowing a
substantial cost savings. The frame can be installed after the walls are
finished, thus eliminating time-consuming trimming and cut-in.
Timely frames are shipped knocked down and are cartoned for easy handling,
lower freight costs and more convenient jobsite distribution. Timely prefinished
frames are competitively priced against wood, aluminum or hollow metal frames.
