Classic By-Pass Door
IMPORTANT: Read all instructions carefully and
become familiar with all parts before installation.
Sill track (A) is over-cut. Measure opening for sill track and
less than measurement to allow for wall jambs (B). Apply a bead
of silicone based caulk or a strip of butyl tape to bottom of
the sill track and position on curb with the low side to the
inside of the unit. Leave equal space at each end.
NOTE: If using a unit
with ripped jambs to fit a Vikrell or similar stall, measure
opening for sill track and cut 3/16"
less than measurement.
Position the wall jambs (B), with the longer legs towards the
opening, over the sill track and press down to the curb. Using
a level, plumb wall jambs. Mark through the holes provided for
anchoring. Drill 3/16";
clearance holes and insert plastic anchors (C) for masonry applications
or drill 1/8"
tap holes for fiberglass and acrylic units.
Secure wall jambs (B) with #8 x 1 1/2" screws (D). Use bumpers
(E) in the center holes of wall jambs.
NOTE: When using a
unit with ripped jambs for a Vikrell or similar stall, bumpers
are not used in the wall jambs.
Header (F) is over-cut. Measure for header and cut
less than opening. Place header down on top of wall jambs with
the scalloped side facing out.
Hang the outside panel (G) by the rollers (H) on the track inside
the header (F). Repeat for the inside panel.
NOTE: If unit is made
with obscure glass, place panels so that the smoother side of
glass is to the inside of unit.
Move panels (G) to closed position. To adjust a panel to be
plumb with wall, remove the panel, reposition the roller (H)
on bracket (I) as needed and re-hang panel to check.
With panels hung from header and plumb with walls, snap in bottom
guides (J) under the ledges of the sill track. Lubricate lightly
Insert towel bars (K) into towel bar brackets (L) with concave
side facing out. Position towel bar assembly on panel with open
side down. Fit studs of towel bar bracket into holes provided
and secure with #8-32 x 3/8"
Caulk the ends of the sill track and all other areas exposed
to water using a silicone based caulk or other suitable sealant
that will prevent water leakage.
