Measure the opening and ensure that it is 900mm wide and 2070mm high.
Insert the door from the outside.
Make sure that the door is correctly placed, the bottom of the door should be aligned with the floor on the inside of the door.
Install the rawl bolt:
a) Open the door and drill a hole (10mm masonry bit) into the wall (4a).
b) Insert the rawl bolt into the hole and fasten with a 14mm socket (4b).
c) Cover the rawl bolt with an end cap(4c).
Next prep the handle for fitting.
a) The screw on the inside of the handle must be removed and then replaced to keep the door handle in the correct position to operate correctly (5a & b).
b) Insert the spindle (square) and the two screw extensions into the outside handle (5c).
c) Fit the handle from the inside using screws provided (5d).
Test the door to see if it opens and closes correctly. If it doesn’t, adjust the attached hinges using a No.4 allen key.
Seal the door inside and out using heavy-duty external silicone.
