Commercial Painting

Painting doors can be expensive and time-consuming. With Door Deckers, the traditional method of painting one side of the door, one at a time, and waiting 2-3 days for drying time is a long-gone conclusion. Mr. Speed’s Painting Tools have created Door Deckers to help commercial contractors and commercial painting companies paint multiple doors, saving a lot of time, space and expense, allowing painters to be awarded jobs and contracts and that means more income.

Door Deckers from Mr. Speed’s Painting Tools is a revolutionary tool made from strong metals. This innovative design allows you to stack doors when painting, saving you time and space. Drips, runs, and smudges are avoided from too much handling, and the stacking style creates a sizable space between the doors for greater airflow and faster drying times. This greatly increases work and productivity. With the capability to stack multiple doors and paint both sides in one seamless process, you can complete the project and move on to the next one quickly, setting commercial contractors and commercial painting companies apart from the others in the industry. 

Commercial painting companies and commercial contractors have found the Door Deckers from Mr. Speed’s Painting Tools to be extremely easy to set up and manipulate. Door Deckers creates a high-quality professional outcome. The process includes removing all the hardware from the door and repairing any chips, scratches, nicks, or spots. Setup is simple but it is recommended that two people are available when it is time to flip the doors. This tool is great for all sizes of painting crews. Once attached, both sides of the doors can be sprayed and stacked out of the way for drying.

The Finishing System includes two steel plates with handles on each attached with brass eyelets. Each plate is securely screwed into the center of either end of a door with a #8 x 1 1/4 inch Phillips wafer head screw (included with purchase) prior to paint or stain application. One pair used on each door is the best method for the average height/weighted door. Once the Door Deckers are attached, painting can begin. Spray one side and then with one person on each end of the door, flip the door and spray the opposite side. Then move the door to an out-of-the-way location for stacking and drying. Continue the process with each additional door. The interlocking system of the steel plates allows for the Door Deckers to balance against each other while stacked. This horizontal painting and drying process creates application finishes without runs or sags and is stacked up and out of the way for drying - great for saving space on a job site. Door Deckers are cost-effective. They can be used over and over again and will pay for themselves on the first job!

To ensure the paint built up between the steel plate and the door itself, the contractor or painter will need to use a knife or sharp edge to score around the edges of the Door Decker before removing the steel plates. This will remove the risk of tearing the paint around the edges of the door. Door Decker Tools are good for new constructions, re-painting, and touch-up needs on job sites. They are very versatile, too. The Door Decker works great for doors, shutters and shelves. They are great for exterior and interior doors as well. 

When painting or staining hollow-core doors, it is recommended stacking the doors for drying only 8-10 doors high. Because the doors are lightweight, they are able to be stacked higher but be aware that warping can occur if left too long in a horizontal position. Included in every box of Door Deckers is an optional tool called the On-Edge Rubber Feet that can be used to help combat warping. 

When painting or staining solid-core doors, it is recommended to stack the doors only 3-4 doors high. In addition, if the doors are not only heavy but also long, using 3 (for a tripod) or 4 (for a “quad-stack”) Door Deckers will create a more sturdy stack. These options help commercial painters and contractors offer a wider variety of construction options to clients for exceptional customer service.

Cleaning Door Deckers from Mr. Speed’s Painting Tools is a simple process. Toss the Door Deckers into an empty five-gallon bucket and soak them in either water or paint thinner, depending on the application type covering the tools. Rinse well and air dry. Door Deckers are efficient and dependable making them easy to clean and store for future use.
