Installing Standard Sliding Doors

1. Sizing Tracks

Measure the width of the top of your opening. Using a set square mark a straight line across the Top Track A. Measure the width of the base of your opening. Mark a corresponding line across the Bottom Track B. Then cut the tracks using a fine tooth hacksaw.

2. Installing Tracks

Top Track - Position Track into the top of the opening. Drill and plug the header/ceiling as required and fix Top Track ( See overleaf for suggestions). Floor Track - Position the Track 32mm back from the front line of Top Track. Fix the Floor Track using double sided tape or screws. IMPORTANT- Floor track should never be raised on a plinth as this could lead to doors leaving the tracks.

3. Positioning Doors

Tip- If installing Panel doors in combination with Mirror Doors it is usual to locate the Panel Doors to the back and Mirror Doors to the front of the track.

6. Adjusting Doors

Align doors plumb to side walls. Adjust bottom wheels to alter the height and angle of each door. Using a pozidrive screwdriver, correct door alignment with screw adjuster attached to bottom wheel. Turn the screw clockwise to lower the door and anti-clockwise to raise the door. Plumb doors to adjacent walls and other doors by adjusting both left and right wheels up and down as required.
