Plans, Door and Hardware Schedules

Plans, Door and Hardware Schedules

The ability to read and understand jobsite plans, Doors schedules, and hardware schedules or very important two door installers.

To locate the doors you’re working on you will need a set of job site plans, you can usually find these in the jobsite office or superintendents office.  You wouldn’t orientate these plans and use them to find Doors all over the project buy you some door numbers.  Inside of those plans usually around page A6, you will find a door schedule and sometimes hardware sets.  You will use the door numbers from the plans on the door schedule to find individual doors. Notice it has various information on it like the size of the door or if it’s wood or metal door.  The hardware set number is also listed and sometimes they have hardware notes on them about the door. The hardware sets will detail all the hardware that goes on each door but sometimes there is a preference by the architect on which side the closer goes on or how different pieces of hardware on mounted and these would be in the notes.

The hardware schedule on the plans is usually different than the hardware schedule from the door distributor. The reason is because the Architect will specify certain hardware but during the bid process that hardware is usually changed by the company supplying it for cheaper solution. Usually this hardware is equivalent but not the same name brand. If you have both a door schedule on the plans and a door schedule from the distributor supplying the Hardware, you should use the hardware schedule from the distributor every time.

This process is the same with bathroom partitions. There are detailed plans in the architectural section of the job site plans that need to measurements for bathroom partitions. However these are not correct in almost every case. You will need shop drawings from the bathroom partition supplier that Hamden field verified, Approved, and signed off by the General contractor.
