Pre-Install Instructions

Please read this to avoid delays and extra costs in the installation of your Door.

Before you confirm your order

1. Check your daylight opening measurement is accurate. Daylight opening is from the bottom of the floor rebate to the underside of the top fascia and from the inside of the left fascia to the inside of the right fascia.
2. Check your headroom. Headroom is from the bottom of the top fascia to the ceiling, or any beam etc lower than the ceiling in the area the door operates.
Anything under 300mm will require a low headroom kit, which can be ordered with the door.

Preparing your site for the Sovereign Garage door.

1. The front wall of your garage must be lined with plasterboard or ply prior to installation.
It is preferred that the ceiling is also lined, but not as critical.
2. Due to the Sovereign weather seals, the garage wall lining needs to be flush with the fascia board.
It is not necessary to finish the join as it is covered by the weather seal system.
3. The floor rebate should be a minimum of 60mm longer than the opening on both sides and should be a minimum of 60mm wide.

Areas where reinforcing is required

1. Either side of the opening a minimum of 90mm wide the height of the wall for the track brackets.
2. The center of the wall above the door for the opener track mount, spanning 400mm either side of the center for mounting of the door springs.
3. The horizontal top tracks require a nog in the ceiling 2100mm back from the front wall 30mm either side of the opening, and the opener needs a nog in the center 3000mm back from the wall.

On the day of your install.

1. Please ensure that at least half of the garage is available for the installer to work on the door.
2. Please allow the installer vehicle access as close to the opening as possible.
