    Default aluminum door frame

    Hi guys I have a A&L aluminum door frame (entrance) and I have just purchased a new door which is a bit more heavier than the old one. The old one is just pop riveted to the door frame my worry is the new door might be a little to heavy but I can make it 4 hinges instead of 3 and if I use longer screws I can screw it into the stud would it be stronger if i screwed it into the stud or the aluminum frame thanks.

    If you use 75 mm screws they should reach the stud. 3 hinges should be fine .
