Installation Instructions


  1. The bottom track is the most critical step. Ensure the track is fixed firm and level in both directions. For longer tracks you may require a laser level. Pre-drill the track 100mm from each end and then 500mm apart. The track port is positioned at the stacking side.
  2. The first jamb to fix is the one that the door is to stack open against. Ensure the jamb is fixed square on the track and level on both faces. This jamb must be firmly fixed to the wall to carry the weight of the door. Thermalite, breeze block or cavity fixed jamb must be firmly strapped to ensure no side to side or rocking movement.
  3. Position the top track on top of the jamb and position, place the other jamb under the top track to hold it in place. If practically possible, do not fix the top track at this stage.
  4. Ensure the second jamb is fixed square on the track and level on both faces. This jamb must be firmly fixed to the wall to carry the weight of the door. Thermalite, breeze block or cavity fixed jamb must be firmly strapped to ensure no side to side or rocking movement.
  5. Ensure the top track is fixed firm and level in both directions. For longer tracks you may require a laser level. Pre-drill the track 100mm from each end and then 500mm apart. The track port is positioned at the stacking side.
  6. Remove the top and bottom hinges from the connecting edge of the 2nd and 3rd (and 4th & 5th if applicable) panel and attach them to the rollers. Set the rollers by winding the bottom Allen bolt to 32mm for the bottom roller and 35mm for the top. The measurement is taken from the top of the black carrier to the underside of the T on the roller.
  7. Insert all the rollers into the tracks. Ensure the hinge is positioned on the right side.
  8. Lift the first panel into position. We recommend that two persons lift the panels. For easy positioning, place timber on the floor so that the top of the timber is 8mm higher than the top of the bottom track. Lift the panel onto to timber. Locate the hinges and fix to the first jamb. Check the panel for parallel positioning and clearance with the tracks.
  9. Insert the half cylinder with the keys in. Rotate the keys to position the cylinder accurately into the lock. Insert the fixing bolt and tighten. Be careful not to over tighten the fixing bolt. Mark, pre-drill and screw on the cylinder cover.
  10. Insert the shorter square bar into the lock. The bar should project no more than 5mm from the face of the panel. Mark, pre-drill and screw on the handle with the lever facing down.
  11. Using the same method as the first panel, fix the second panel. Slide the top and bottom roller onto the panel, position and fix. Check the panel for parallel positioning and clearance with the tracks. Adjustment to the rollers may be required at this stage. Note: For 4, 5 and 6 panel door sets, repeat steps 8, 9, 10 and 11. For 2, 4, or 6 panels folding in one direction, a solid hinge is attached to the top and bottom roller of the last panel.
  12. Attach the swing panel.
  13. Insert the full cylinder with the keys in. Rotate the keys to position the cylinder accurately into the lock. Insert the fixing bolt and tighten. Be careful not to over tighten the fixing bolt. Mark, pre-drill and screw on the cylinder covers.
  14. Insert the longer square bar into the lock. The bar should project no more than 5mm from the face of the panel. Mark, pre-drill and screw on the handle with the lever facing horizontally.
  15. Open the door and lock the swing panel into the track. Slide the door closed so that it is positioned 50mm from the closing jamb. Using masking tape, mark the position of the bolts. Mark, pre-drill and screw on the keeps in accordance to your bolt markings.
  16. Cut to size and clip in the fixing covers into the jambs.
  17. Seal around the frame and remove the protective tape.
  18. Clip the drip caps into the slots on the outside of the panels.

Measuring Instructions

Measuring Instructions

How do you open that space in your home to incorporate a folding sliding door?

The first thing that you need is an opening to accommodate the door. The opening must be of sound structure to allow the door to be installed correctly.

The opening walls and floor can be constructed from structural timber, steel, brick, concrete or concrete block. Thermalite, cinder blocks or breeze blocks are not suitable to obtain a firm structural fixing.

The head of the opening must be constructed from steel, structural timber or concrete. Light metal lintels and timber sub-frames are not suitable to obtain a firm structural fixing.

The next step is to measure your opening This must be done from side to side and top to bottom. Always allow 10mm tolerance in your measurements. It is advisable to use a large spirit level to check the opening as an opening that is not level can effect your measurement.

When deciding the way that you would like your threshold to be situated, always make allowances in your measurement to accommodate the bottom track. Note: the frame height includes the bottom track.
