Q?The visible part of my wooden door frame looking from the outside is very narrow about 1 inch (25mm) because the bricks have been rendered in sand and cement (pebble dashed) therefore hiding part of the door frame. Your barrier needs to overlap onto the door frame by 1 ½ inches each side for the barrier to clip onto the door frame, what do you suggest I can do?
A.

By simply fixing a wooden batten each side of the door frame will increase the width to a minimum of 1 ½ inches (35mm) allowing the barrier to clip on to it. Once the wooden batten is painted it becomes part of your door frame. Go to door frames/wooden section for examples.

Q?My UPVC door frame has plastic trim down the edges, where the door frame meets the brickwork. Will I need to avoid the plastic when I choose the barrier size?
A.

Yes, UPVC door frames are approx. 3 inches (75mm) wide, which allows the barrier to overlap at least 1 ½ inches (35mm) each side of the door frame and avoiding the plastic trim allowing the barrier to clip to the door frame rebate/jam. Go door frames/UPVC section for examples.
