In considering, I would look at:

Steel frame?

Steel ‘commercial’ door?

Self-closing device?

Proper latching hardware?

Well installed?

If yes to all the above, I move on with the inspection.


My quick research shows that there were some manufactures that did make kalamein doors without tags. The main distinguishing feature of a kalamein door is that it is wood core not all-steel construction.  As to the site-installed door skins, I’ve got quite a few of them here in Perth but in 9.5 buildings where they only needed to get 20 min and had recessed panel doors that didn’t meet the 45mm min.
