What is the difference between the DW-Series and K-Series frames?

Both the DW and K-Series frames are identical with the exception of the base anchoring. Both the DW and K-series frames are supplied with a field adjustable compression anchor in each jamb located approximately 4" down from head of the frame.

The DW-Series frame uses an adjustable base anchor clip that twists into place and wrap and attach to the metal/wood stud. The DW-series frame is designed especially for use in installations using wall baseboards.

The K-Series frame does not use the base anchor clips. The base of each jamb is anchored to the wall by installing screws through the factory prepared anchor holes. K-series frames are designed for especially for use in applications not using baseboards. The type of screws used to anchor the K-series frame is a #8 x 1 1/4" Phillips Flat Head Sheet Metal Screw.

  • A baseboard (also called skirting board, skirting, mop board, floor molding, as well as base molding) is a wooden board (or can be a length of extruded plastic, or a length of tile) covering the lowest part of an interior wall. The baseboard covers the uneven edge of flooring next to the wall and protects the wall from kicks, abrasion, and furniture; and can serve as a decorative molding.
