          B.Prepare surfaces using methods recommended by manufacturer for achieving the best result for substrate under the project conditions.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete paragraph below if no field painting is required.
 
          C.Field Painting Preparation:
          1.Before application of finish coat, surfaces must be dry and free of dirt, oil and dust.
          2.Finish Coat: Applied over a film that is intact. Field prime scratches or bare edges with a rust inhibiting paint before top coating.
          a.Comply with instructions provided by paint manufacturer.
 
          3.3INSTALLATION
 
          A.Install in accordance with manufacturer's instructions, approved submittals, and in proper relationship with adjacent construction.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Refer to SDI publication, Installation Guide for Commercial Steel Doors and Frames and DHI's publication Installation Guide for detailed recommendations.
 
          B.General:
          1.Set plumb, square, aligned, and without twist at correct elevation.
          2.Steel Frames: Install plumb, straight and true, rigidly secured in place, and properly braced.
          3.Comply with ANSI/DHI A115-IG installation guide.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Delete if fire rated doors and frames are not required.
          4.Comply with NFPA 80 installation standards.
 
          C.Frame Installation Tolerances:
          1.Plumbness Tolerance: Measured through a line from intersecting corner of vertical members and the head to the floor. 0 to 0.063 inches (1.6 mm).
          2.Squareness Tolerance: Measured through a line 90 degrees from one jamb at upper corner of product, to opposite jamb. 0 to 0.063 inches (1.6 mm).

          H.Touch up exposed surfaces scratched or marred during shipment, installation or handling with a rust inhibitive primer.
          ** NOTE TO SPECIFIER ** Finish coat recommendations: Taylor's primer has been formulated to give the product maximum protection. It is important that compatible materials be used in the final or finished coat of paint. The painting contractor should test a small section of the door or frame if there is any doubt as to the composition of the finish coat. Certain finish coat materials are not recommended. Consult manufacturer.
 
          I.Field Painting: Work of Section 09 90 00 - Painting and Coating.
