Method

1. Sliding the door

When you install a sliding door it is important to align top rollers to the top track first. Then lift the bottom rollers up on to the bottom track. Slide back and forth to make sure that you have rollers correctly on the track; do this with both doors.

Once both doors are on the tracks, roll them back and forth and then bringing them both to the centre. Now with a Philips head screwdriver adjust the rollers located at the back of the doors. Start with the bottom rollers and adjust only enough to bring doors into a perfectly square situation with each other in the centre location. Once this is done and the doors are square, adjust the top of rollers up so as to take any up-and-down movement out of the doors. Be careful at this point not to adjust rollers too tight as it may cause them stress. Only take the up-and-down movement out.

                                                                                                                       

2. Installing the H Receiver and Lock

This is designed to be fitted to the non-active door and may need some adjustment in height. Use a hacksaw or a drop saw to get the correct height, fit to the non-active door with the rivets supplied. The channel will have two small ribs in one side of and this is to face the non-active door leaving a clean U channel for the active door to close into.

Bring the doors together in the centre and mark the required location of the striker receiver to be installed onto the H channel. Using a 3 mm drill bit drill in the centre of the two elongated holes and attach the striker receiver with the screws provided. Close doors and adjust as necessary.

 

3. Installing the Frame Interlock

Bring the doors to the centre and allow to self catch together. Make sure the doors are centred perfectly and line up with the receiving interlocks on the fixed glass panels. There should now be approximately a 4 mm overlap; install the frame interlocks provided starting with the non-active then moving to the active. Using a 5/32-drill bit, drill and pop rivet the frame interlock with the rivets provided. In some cases it may be necessary to adjust length the of frame interlock, this can be done with a hacksaw. Once installed, open and close the doors to tests that they are locking and interlocking correctly. Test that the keys are operating both internally and externally and that the internal chrome snib is working correctly as well.

  

                                                                                                      

4. Installing the Receiving Interlock

For installation where a 3 mm or 7 mm receiving interlock required follow the process as above up until the the frame interlock is to be installed.

For installation where a flat interlocks is required follow the process as above up until the the frame interlock is to be installed.

Open and test doors to make sure that they are locking and interlocking correct. Test also that the keys are operating both internally and externally and that the internal chrome Snib is functioning correctly.
