Steel Door DIY Installation Guide

What will you need to get the job done?

Most of what you need is supplied with the door:

  • Handle with spindle and screw extensions
  • Hardware bag
  • Rawl bolts and caps

Additional tools and materials:

- A tape measure

- Screwdrivers

- No.4 allen key

- 10mm Masonry bit

- A drill

- Heavy-duty, external silicone

Like most things, DIY is easy when you know how. Follow these easy steps to get the job done like a pro.

 
Step One

Measure the opening and ensure that it is 900mm wide and 2070mm high.

 
Step Two

Insert the door from the outside.

 
Step Three

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.

 
Step Four

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).

 
Step Five

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).

 
Step Six

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.
