Isle Of Dogs, E14 - Eclisse sliding door

Back

The Eclisse sliding door system comes as a flat-pack and must be assemble on site and usually a timber partition wall is require.

The width of the Eclisse's frame can be adjusted to 100mm or 75mm which will determine what size of timber partition you will use.

It is important that both the timber partition wall and the sliding door are both plumb and level otherwise the sliding door will not close properly.

 

A 10mm x 17mm groove must be routed on the bottom underside of the door and a anti-warp metal profile channel is then cut to the width of the door plus 15mm. Next the channel is tapped into the groove and a door guide is fixed to the finished floor.

The door guide runs on the inside of the metal channel which allows the bottom of the door to slide smoothly.                                                      

 

Two door brackets are fixed to the top of the door (spaced 120mm from the door's edge).

Located above is the overhead track so the door is lifted into position and the door brackets are hooked over the door runners and are secured using lock nuts.

Next, the door is push into the wall's cavity, making sure the door's flush handles protrudes beyond the wall's edge (otherwise it becomes difficult to retrieve the door) and the door stop on the overhead track is locked into position.

The door stop prevents the door from sliding any further into the internal cavity of the wall.

 

As an extra, a braking mechanism was fitted to the overhead track which prevents the door from being slammed.

 

Lastly, rubber bumpers and brushes were fitted to the door linning.
