    Timely supplies frames with design flexibility to meet the most stringent commercial, industrial and residential requirements.

    The remarkably versatile Timely line features distinctive door frame casing profiles in steel, aluminum and PVC. Plus, it offers an option to use wood trims of your choice and an unlimited selection of colors complementing doors pre-machined to Timely’s specifications.

    Our patented sustained tension snap-lock clips permit use of our various prefinished casings. The clips hold these casings secure and flush against the wall, eliminating gaps caused by uneven surfaces, as well as creating tight miters. On the TA-8 casing, the Timely MiterGard™ offers additional open-miter protection.
