How To Install Doors
Start by measuring the openings you wish to enclose by the daylight opening, width & height.
• Measure height at 3 places, left-middle-right, and take the smallest measurement (see Image 1)
• Measure width at 3 places, bottom-middle-top and take the smallest measurement (see Image 2)
When the doors arrive handle the boxes with care. If using an exacto knife to slit the strapping be careful not to cut the vinyl or screens.
All doors have a 1″ flange around all four sides with pre-drilled holes. You will install the screws through the flange into the structure. As a minimum use 1″ self-taping stainless steel screws, or pre-drill additional holes if needed into the flange and use regular screws.
1 – Check for correct fit by holding door in its appropriate space
2 – Apply a bead of exterior caulking onto back side of flange and square the door into the opening
3 – Fasten 1st screw into the pre-drilled bottom left hole, the 2nd screw through top left corner hole
4 – Fasten 3rd screw in top right corner through the flange and 4th screw through bottom right corner
5 – Fasten at least 2 more screws through the flange on both sides between the top and bottom screws
6 – Depending on the width, fasten at least 1 screw centered through the top flange
7 – Once installed remove spacers and rivets
8 – Install threshold with fasteners designed for sub surface
9 – Install door handle through pre-drilled hole
10- Check handle & deadbolt for easy operation
