Mark out where the brickwork and the door is
going.
Drive the nails into the ends of two lengths of
timber. These are used to prop up door
frame. Stand up the door frame,
remembering to check which way the door is
hinged. Hook the nail onto the top edge of the
frame.
Using a spirit level, plumb the frame by
moving the stays. When it is plumb, secure
the timber stays with a couple of bricks.

STEP 6
You are now ready to start the brickwork.
Proceed laying the bricks into the rebate at
the back of the frame.
Place mortar into the gap between the brick
and the frame as you go along. This will fill
the frame with cement and make it rigid and
strong. The frame thus becomes an integral
part of the wall's construction and adds to the
strength. Furthermore, this guarantees that
the wall is plumb and of uniform thickness.
Each steel door frame is supplied with a
quantity special wire brick ties. These should
be used to tie in the brickwork every fourth or
fifth brick course.

Note: Once the mortar is set remove the
spreader bar at base of frame
