Frameworks brings new light to interior architecture with a vast selection of frames, doors, and windows that pair with custom and standard glazing options. We offer an expansive range of aluminum frame designs to give you the flexibility to create distinctive interiors. 

Our Type 1 Framing System features a smart modular design and can be used with an exposed top track, eliminating the need for drywall tracks at the top of all partitions. Its monolithic design does not require snap-on trims and has fewer components for quicker installation. The Type 1 Framing System is available in all standard finishes, as well as custom finishes to bring your vision to life.  

This system is predominantly found in three regions of the United States: North Carolina, Ohio, and Texas. The wall framing differs from our Type 2 Framing System, as well as hollow metal systems because the last drywall stud at each door frame opening must be held back in the wall 2 ¾“ from the edge of the rough opening. The Type 1 Framing System collaborates with a wall thickness of either 3 ¾” or 4 ⅞” and glass material with ¼” or ⅜” thickness, with it glazed on one side only.

Our Type 1 Framing System shows how Frameworks places great designs within the small details, from recessed glazing pockets to concealed fasteners and more. Check out our project for Unocal, located in Sugarland, TX. Their project utilized our Type 1 Framing System with ¾” reveal head tracks in the standard bronze paint finish. The remodel of this project consisted of 220 door frames and approximately 1,000 l/f of clerestory window frames. Frameworks supplied the project in less than three weeks, installed by Drake Interiors and K.I. Services, and was overseen by architect Kirksey.

Since 1996, Frameworks has been manufacturing high quality, prefinished aluminum frames, sidelites, borrowed lites, and doors for interior and commercial applications.
