Ask the Experts | Ask the Door Guys | Opening Dimensions for a Hollow Metal KD Drywall Frame


What are the rough opening dimensions for a Hollow Metal KD Drywall Frame?



Typically the frame needs to wrap the wall 1″ on all 3 sides. In this case you would need to add 2″ to the door opening width and 1″ to the height.

Example: For a 3070 door and frame (36″ x 84″ door opening) you would need a rough opening of 38″ x 85″.
