L.I.F Industries manufactures commercial doors that receive high ratings from Home Depot customers. Reviewers state the stores are well constructed and secure. Other customers give high ratings to JELD-WEN fire rated six-panel doors because they are easy to install.
The L.I.F doors have commercial grade lock-sets. Customers state the doors are very well constructed and a breeze to install, but note the door does not come with primer as advertised. One customer uses the steel door with welded frame for a bad weather safe room in the basement. It fits square and plumb in a concrete block wall. Another reviewer compliments L.I.F customer service for speedy order processing.
For installation, one reviewer recommends first grinding the welds completely flush when removing the bottom support of an L.I.F commercial door frame. This customer also states that the Vision Lite door does not come with a dead bolt lock. It comes with only one cutout for a latch key lock.
For a door with primer, Home Depot customers give high ratings to the JELD-WEN door. One customer appreciates the spring assisted hinges, but states wiring the door for security sensors is difficult. Other reviewers state the doors are easy to install, but that the hinges prevent the door from closing properly.
