INTRODUCTION
The RMEP ¾” door frame allows installation of a hoistway door with minimal intrusion into the
hoistway for maximum clearance from car sill to hoistway sill. This will allow the hoistway door and the
cab gate to comply with the new 0.75” rule under section 5.3.1.7.2 of the ASME Code.
It is not the intention of this document to obstruct the development of alternative installation
methods, nor is it intended to restrict free installation solely to all types noted herein.
The RMEP ¾” Door Frame can accept both the RMEP SMARTLOCK and the Honeywell RDI series
locks. The installation of the RMEP ¾” Door Frame allows for the 0.75” of clearance from the sill to the
hoistway door by allowing the hoistway door interlock to mount inside the door frame. This manual
covers the installation of the lock into the door frame.
REQUIRED EQUIPMENT
Equipment for plumbing the frame
The contactor should be equipped with carpenters level, carpenters square, wood spreaders, Cclamps, and a full set of hand tools.
Tools



Standard Hand Tools
3/32” flathead screwdriver
Set of Allen Wrenches
Wood spreader cut to proper width (X2)
Large Square
C- Clamps (x4)
3 Foot Level
Where welded frames are provided with shipping spreader bars, they should be removed with a
suitable saw or chisel and filed flush before setting the frame.

INSTALLATION TOLERANCES
While this document is mainly concerned with the installation process, proper tolerances must
be held, and openings will not function properly if the frame is not installed within recognized
tolerances.
Figure 2 shows examples of the accuracy to be maintained when setting frames.

VERIFICATION
Verify that the rough door frame is the proper size for the door and frame ordered before the
installation process begins. If there is a discrepancy in size, ensure that the discrepancy is corrected before
proceding with the installation. Verify that door swing is also correct before installing the door frame.
Figure 3.
5
STORAGE
Frames shall be placed flat on at least 4 inches of wood to prevent the frames from resting on
the ground. All frames shall be stored under cover to prevent rusting. Frames are to be stored in a
manner to protect them from becoming damaged. Welded frames are to be stored vertically.
ASSEMBLY OF KNOCK DOWN FRAME
Place frame on two rigid and square sawhorses that are on solid level ground. Place tabs into
the slots as shown Figure 4. Attach c-clamps to the frame risers to securely hold the spreaders between
the risers. Place large bar clamps on the header and foot of the riser to hold the header tight against the
risers. The contractor responsible for installation shall have an available and sufficient supply of wood,
spreaders and clamps.
Wood spreaders shall be square and fabricated from lumber no less than 1 inch thick. Correct length is
the door opening width between the jambs at the header.

POSITION OF SPREADERS INSIDE FRAME
Check the frame for square at the corners of the header. Ensure that the header and riser legs
are flush in respect with the face of the frame. Using a hammer, bend the tabs over and re-verify the
frame is square. Weld the corner seams of the front and rear of the frame, tack weld the tabs down
that you bent over earlier. Grind the welds on the faces to a smooth finish and prep the frame for finish
painting.

Assembly
Remove shipping spreader, and file or grind smooth. While no assemble is required for welded
frame it should be checked for square. Next, attach c-clamps to the frame risers to securely hold the
spreaders between the risers to stabilize the frame while installing. (See Figure 4)
POSITIONING THE FRAME (KNOCK DOWN AND PRE-WELDED)
Place the frames legs into position at the base of the rough opening, and tip the frame into
position (See Figure 5).
Figure 5. Installing the Frame
HOISTWAY SIDE OF DOOR
Insert the legs of the frame
into position and tip the
frame into position.
Set the frame inside the desired location and level the header. Square jamb to header. Shim riser legs
if necessary to set jamb to the finished floor level height!
7
Remove any drywall or add shims as needed to maintain plumb “A”, install pan head screws to
secure. Repeat for the outside flange “B” (See Figure 6). Remove the spreader bars.
Figure 6. Leveling and squaring the frame.
Use a carpenters square to verify
the frame is properly aligned.
Level the header first with
shims under the riser legs.

Where grouting is required in masonry installations, frames shall be braced in such a way that it
will prevent the pressure of the grout from deforming the fame members.
Secure metal frame to studs after shimming using #8 Large Diameter screws (1-1/2” long in Leg
“A”, and 3/4” inch long in Leg “B” and across the header respectively). See figure
INSTALLING RUBBER SILENCERS
Install the rubber silencers into the door strike as shown in Figure 7.

LOCK INSTALLATION
Keeper mounting plate
To properly position the keeper plate on the door, use the mounting jig to mark the cutout
boundaries on the doors edge. *NOTE: Hang the door as it will be installed in the finished state.
The jig has four 10-32 pan head screws that can be reversed to allow for either left or right hand
operation.
Place the four screws into the unthreaded holes that mount the lock plate to the door frame.
You can either secure it with a few nuts or hold it in place. Close the door until it comes into contact
with the plate and use the cutouts to mark where the 4-1/2” hinge cutout should go to position the
latch plate properly on the door. (See Figure 8.) Use the inner flat edges to mark the boundaries of the
cutout area. You can use a straight edge to extend the line from the jig as the door will not close into
the frame with the jig in place. (This is just a guide to mark where to cut, not a cut out jig.) Using hand
tools or a hinge router tool cut a hinge pocket. Remove the jig and install the lock.

Use the inner edge to mark the cutout location.

hinge pocket
using the inside
edges.

Installation of lock
Install lock to the mounting plate. Using the 10-24 cap screws provided. NOTE: Position
the mounting plate so that the mounting holes are closest to the outer face of the door. (Spin the plate 180 deg. top
to bottom if needed to achieve the proper hole location.)
Position the lock into the frame ensuring the orientation of the lock mounting plate holds the lock against the
outer face (door swing side) of the frame. If the lock is not against the inside face of the frame, remove the lock
mounting plate and rotate it so that the top is on the bottom and replace into position inside the frame. Secure using
the lock mounting plate to the doorframe using the 10-24 3/8” flat head screws.

Keeper and Keeper Plate
To mount the keeper to the keeper plate, use the 10-24 ½” pan head screw and the 10-24 lock nut.
The keeper plate is universal for left and right swinging doors. Mount the keeper on the lower set of holes
as shown in Figure 10. (The other hole is for the Honeywell RDI lock keeper.) Use the #9 flat head screw to mount
the keeper plate to the door. Install the upper and lower #9 wood screw and adjust the position of the keeper so that
the door latches and pushes the door closed switch. Tighten the two #9 wood screws and install the third #9 wood
screw in the middle hole to secure the position.
