Yes, however timber door frames are not always built plumb and level, so some modification to the frame may be required. They will also vary in size a lot more than a steel door frame making the cost significantly higher per unit.
Yes, one-piece Door Frame Protection will last a lot longer than 2-piece or 3-piece frame protection. 2 or 3-piece frame protection tends to seperate from the frame when it is hit multiple times, whereas one-piece TotalWrap frame protection clings in a snug fit to the frame. Multi-piece frame protection is generally joined together with vertical caulk joins. These caulk joins fail over time creating an infection-control issue. The multi-piece frame protection also takes longer to install than a one-piece TotalWrap door frame protector than clips easily over the frame. Some hospitals have seen multi-piece frame protection fail in less than a year. If installed correctly, one-piece frame protection should protect the frame for 25+ years with only cosmetic marking to its surface. Watch this video for more information.
