PIVOT DOORS INSTALLATION

The pivot doors are designed to rotate in their vertical axis. Available with or without a stopper, this door can effortlessly rotate 360 degrees in its axis, thus achieving an elegant swing in the space.

 The system is formed with sophisticated hinges hidden on the top and bottom of the door, creating the center where the door rotates. Since the hinges are concealed, the doors are designed and manufactured in large sizes to make them look elegant and functional.

 The door’s beauty is further enhanced by large handles, which also act as a decorative element on the door. Though it is more commonly available in wood, it can also be designed in glass and metal.

  1. Your PIVOT DOOR FRAME comes complete with a high-quality concealed heavy-duty hydraulic self-closing mechanism and perimeter weather seals.
  2. Ensure the opening is correctly prepared; allow 5 to 10 mm clearance both horizontally and vertically. 
  3. Once the opening has been prepared correctly; you can now lift the pivot frame into space.

The keeper plate should be on the inside of the house. The transportation blocks and spacers must is left on the frame at this stage. These blocks hold the door firmly in the correct position for installation.

  1. Before fixing the frame into the opening, the frame must be plumb, level, square, and without a twist. Use wedges or packers between the frame and wall structure to ensure all these essential elements are correct.
  2. Once the frame has been fixed into the opening, re-check for plumb, level, square, and twist. The transportation blocks are now be removed. At this stage, provided that the installation instructions have been followed correctly, the pivot door will swing freely and have all the correct clearances.

6 Door closing speed and latching speed are factory set. However, these settings are adjusted using the closing speed regulating screw and the latching speed regulating screw.

EXTERIOR DOORS INSTALLATION

Installing a wooden door can be a challenging project, and you need to make sure you do it right because if you don’t, you may find the entry isn’t level or that it can’t open or close properly. For this reason, you need to know the correct steps to follow to make the project a successful one.

A list of the items you’ll need to complete this project.

  • Door
  • Frame
  • Shims
  • Pry bar
  • Putty knife
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill

Step-By-Step Guide on How to Install a Wooden Door

Step 1. Measure and Level the Rough Opening

Check the dimensions of the rough opening. It may surprise you to know the sides are not always wholly straight (“plumb”), the gap between the sides at the top and the bottom might not be the same, and the floor might not be level, for this reason, you need to measure and level everything carefully at this point before you continue.

Step 2. Check the Sill

The next step is crucial. To ensure the door fits properly, you need to check the sill. If the floor isn’t level, the door won’t open and close smoothly, so you need to check this out before moving on.

If the floor isn’t level, raise the leveling tool by placing wooden shims beneath it at the lower end until it is level. Measure the height of the shims you needed to use (or the measurement between the deck and the floor).

Step 3. Adjust the Jamb According to the Measurement

The measurement you just took tells you how much higher the floor is at one side of the door than the other. You now need to adjust the door jamb by removing this amount from the bottom.

Be careful that you cut the correct jamb. The one that will be on the side where the sill is higher is the one that needs to be shortened.

Step 4. Secure the Frame with Shims

Secure the door frame in place using shims. Place one wooden shim on the door’s hinge side and place another behind the hinge attachment in the door frame.

After this, work around the frame adding more shims at various points to ensure the door is held firmly and securely in place.

As you work, keep measuring with the level and continue adjusting until the frame is plumb.

Step 5. Screw the Frame into Place

Once you have got the frame into place, you can now use screws to fix it in place. Use screws at each location where you placed the shims to set the whole thing securely.

Step 6. Set the Door in Place and Test It

You can now set the door in place. Set the door on the hinges, using shims underneath to support it as necessary. Insert the hinge pins and knock them in with a hammer if you need to.

You can now test the door to see if it opens and closes correctly. Ideally, you want around a 1/8″ gap at the top and along the strike side while looking for a 1/16″ opening on the hinge side.

Step7. Fit the Trim and Finish Up

If the door is in place and opens and closes correctly, you can now fit the trim and finish up. Sand the frame lightly and paint as required. You may also need to check the doorknob, in which case you can do this now.
