    Screw the wheels in to the pre-drilled holes in the frame; apply the bottom two screws only into wheel mechanism.

  • 8

    Apply the two screws into the side rails to secure the bottom wooden panel.
    DO NOT attempt to secure the mirrored panels using screws as this will result in shattering the mirror, silicone or adhesive tape must be used as shown later in the instructions.

  • 9

    Slide all the remaining wooden panels and mid rails into position within the door frame.

  • 10

    Once the top panel and rail are in position, place the runners onto the top rail and screw in using the pre-drilled holes.

  • 11

    Now apply the remaining screws to the side rails in order to secure the wooden panels.
    (REMINDER: Do not use screws to fix the mirrored panels in place).

  • 12a

    The securing of the mirrored panels is optional, should you wish to secure your mirrors please use silicone.
    (see pictures 12a and 12b for guidance)

    Now it’s time to lay the floor track, carefully measure the length of track required and make sure the floor is level.

    Accurately cut the track to size.

    Secure the floor track by screwing into the holes provided.

    Measure the space available for fitting the ceiling track.

  • 18

    Accurately measure and cut the ceiling track to size.

    Screw the ceiling track into the pelmet or ceiling. When fitting directly to the ceiling make sure that you get a good fixing into the joists.

    Next fit the soft closing system to the first of your two end doors. This item is an optional extra and does not come included, please go to our website to order this part.

    We recommend you fit bumper tape to both edges of each door to ensure a cushioned close.
