INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSEMBLED STRIP DOORS
Your Strip Door has been custom-fabricated
for your opening, based on dimensions
supplied to the factory.
YOUR STRIP DOOR MAY BE IN MORE THAN ONE
If this is the case, the packages are marked
"A", "B", "C", ect. This indicates the order in
which the strip door sections contained in each
package should be mounted, left to right.
The "A" package, will also indicate if yours
is a face-mount door, or a between-the-jambs
mount that goes under the lintel.
YOUR STRIP DOOR HAS THREE PARTS, (1) the
Mounting Bracket, which may be mounted
either on the face of the wall immediately
above the opening, or the bottom surface
of the lintel, (2) the Strip Retainer, which
holds the strips to the mounting bracket,
and (3) the strips themselves.
MEASURE THE WIDTH OF YOUR OPENING
and mark the center point on the wall or
lintel, whichever is appropriate for your
particular door. As noted above, your door
utilizes one or more Mounting Brackets. If
the center of the door system is at a bracket
splice, you'll find two arrows, one each on two
brackets. This splice should be positioned with
the center mark you've made. If the door center is
not at a splice, locate the bracket with an arrow
and align that arrow with your center mark.
MOUNT THE BRACKET(S) INTO POSITION. If
there are more than one, keep them in the "A",
"B", "C", order, left to right, as indicated on the
package. Use the holes in the top of the flange
for an under-the-lintel installation, or the holes
in the back of the flange for an on the wall
IF THERE IS MORE THAN ONE SECTION to your
door, the Retainer Bracket may extend
beyond the end of one section along with a
portion of the Strip as in Drawing A. If this
is the case with your door, remove the
overhanging Retainer and butt the
Mounting Bracket against the center
section as in Drawing B. If there is no
overhanging Retainer, merely butt the
two sections together. In either case, lap
the Strip across the joint, maintaining
the same over-and-under pattern. If you had
an overhanging Retainer, reinstall it,
spanning the joint.
THE STRIPS ARE LONGER THAN YOUR OPENING
IS HIGH. When installed the Strips should clear
the floor by about 1/4". Mark the proper
length on the Strip with a felt marker, or
other instrument. Using a piece of wood, such
as a 2 x 4, as a cutting surface, trim the Strip
with a utility knife. In cold weather, the Strips
can be quite tough, so you may need to make
two or three slices with the knife.
NOTE; THE STRIPS MAY BE so concave that they
do not overlap properly when you first install
the door. This is especially true in cold
weather. However, this concaveness will
flatten out, and the Strips will provide a
good, over-lapping closure in a short time after
your door is hung.
