How to make folding door most

The main advantage of folding doors is that they very much save space. At the same time, folding doors are rather convenient in operation. For production of folding door you can use the ready sets which are on sale in shops or just to design it from two blinds. Production of folding doors does not demand special purpose tool and to make such door quite perhaps most.

It is required to you

  • - tape measure;
  • - drill;
  • - drills;
  • - construction level;
  • - screws;
  • - guides for mounting of folding doors;

1. Carefully measure width of door opening in its upper part, in the place of fastening of monorail. Cut off monorail to the necessary size by means of hacksaw. In case the fixing opening has appeared on the cut-off part of monorail, it is necessary to plan places of fastening and to drill new openings by means of spiral drill. Strictly record monorail in upper part of door case. Establish the fixing latch in the left part of monorail.

2. Measure and note the provision of axis on the left side at the top face of door. Drill opening in door face by means of drill. Diameter of this opening has to correspond to diameter of axis. Establish the top axis so that she acted over door face a little. Establish the lower axis by analogy with top.

3. Establish heel plate in the left bottom corner of door case. Adjustment of the lower heel to be carried out by means of the special key which is included in the delivery package. Adjustment can be carried out both down, and across.

4. Note the provision of the door directing in the top right face. Drill the opening coinciding on diameter with fitting of guide and record guide.

5. Put doors next to each other so that the gap between them did not exceed 3 mm. Mark the provision of door hinges, having placed along doors three loops equally spaced. Drill openings and establish loops.

6. Install the door handle on the right door, on the center.

7. Put doors and establish the lower axis in receiving plate of door case. Insert guide and the top axis into monorail. Remove door to sidewall of door case. Make sure that the top axis is reliably recorded in monorail latch.

8. Check work - if you have not made mistakes, your door has to be closed and open freely.
