The Steel Door Institute, established in 1954, is a voluntary, unincorporated, non-profit association whose mission is to promote the use of standard steel doors and frames for the construction industry. Steel doors and frames that are manufactured without deviation from SDI standards offer economy of fabrication and compliance with recognized standards of quality. Non-standard units can result in added cost and lead time.
Members of the Steel Door Institute manufacture standard steel doors and frames in accordance with these standards. Standard-duty, heavy-duty, and extra-heavy-duty classifications in flush, seamless, glazed, louvered, and other styles are available. This specification is based on steel doors and steel frames that are manufactured without deviation from SDI standards.
