Decide where your shutter goes (ideally in a trimdek or monoclad profile).

Note: Door packers must not be removed until door jamb is fully fastened off.

RETRO-FIT FACE FIX INSTALLATION INTO CORRUGATED, TRIMDEK OR MONOCLAD PROFILE

Ensure the cut is in an area that has no structural steel behind it, safely cut cladding to recommended opening size and install door jamb mullions. Insert the shutter with the architrave over the cladding the arch will sit against the highest point of the cladding. Lift the shutter to the top of the opening to close gap at the top for water proofing.

Once the shutter is in place (minimum of 10-gauge screw) put one screw in the top hinge. At this point get the hinge side of the shutter square/plumb then insert a screw at the bottom hinge (be sure that the door has not moved during this action). Continue to screw off the other side of the shutter
until complete.

When screwing off the other side of the hatch, again check to make sure the jamb is still square/plumb. The doors can drop under its own weight at this point, so if its not square/plumb it can result in the door not shutting properly and catching.

OPTIONAL INSTALLATION

The architrave of the Shutter sits on the flat into the valley of the cladding profile.

Note: When cutting opening make the horizontal cuts approx. 50mm wider on both sides than the vertical cut.  This will allow the top architrave to slide behind the cladding and the lower wall cladding must be partly removed.

As above, make sure top architrave slides behind the shed cladding. Once the Shutter is in place (minimum of 10-gauge tek screws) put one screw in at the top. Then get the Shutter plumb then insert a screw at the top other side.

At this point the bottom cladding will be stopping the architrave from allowing the Shutter to sit flat. This next process can be difficult to achieve.

To get the bottom architrave behind the cladding just like the top. To do this the lower wall cladding must be partly removed and rolled back to allow the corner of the arc to slide in the 50mm cut one side. Once this is finished, we recommend inserting the other side. Then completing the fixing process
until complete. Slide j-mould under cladding and fix with minimum of 3 screws each top and bottom.

Note: 12 screws are the minimum required, however we recommend fixing front and back. If more screws are used these 12 are still required at these points level with the hinges J-moulds work better when slightly lower at one side, directing away from user.
