  • Allow the doors to adjust to the room temperature and conditions for 2 – 3 days prior to installation.
  • Doors should be stored in a well-ventilated area, positioned horizontally on 3 supports (a minimum of 75mm from the floor) with no exposure to natural elements.
  • Please ensure that wooden doors are fitted by a qualified carpenter.
  • Allow a maximum of 5mm bottom clearance and 3mm side and top clearance.
