are designed to work in most existing applications. However, existing
conditions may require changes to these instructions. If changes are
needed, they are made at the installer’s risk. For installations other than

SAFETY AND HANDLING
SAFETY
• Read and fully understand ALL manufacturers’ instructions before
beginning. Failure to follow proper installation and finishing
instructions may result in the denial of warranty claims for
operational performance problems.
• WARNING: Drilling, sawing, sanding or machining wood products
generates wood dust, a substance known to the State of California to
cause cancer. Use a respirator or other safeguards to avoid inhaling
wood dust.
MATERIALS AND DOOR HANDLING
• Do not work alone. Two or more people are required. Use safe
lifting techniques.
• Allow doors to acclimate to local conditions for at least 24 hours
before finishing.
• Use caution when handling glass. Broken or cracked glass can cause
serious injury.
• Make sure the slab is secured prior to installation.
• Wear protective gear (e.g. safety glasses, gloves, ear protection, etc.).
• Operate hand/power tools safely and follow manufacturer’s
operating instructions.
• If disturbing existing paint, take proper precautions if lead paint is
suspected (commonly used before 1979). Your regional EPA (www.
epa.gov/lead) or Consumer Product Safety Commission offices provide
information regarding regulations and lead protection.
• Heed material manufacturers’ handling and application instructions.
• Do not put stress on joints, corners or frames.
• Store door in dry, well-ventilated area in vertical, leaning position to
allow air circulation; do not stack horizontally or drag on the floor.
• Protect from exposure to direct sunlight during storage.
• Install only into vertical walls and when conditions are dry.
IF INJURY OCCURS, IMMEDIATELY SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION!

REMOVE PACKAGING AND INSPECT DOOR
REMOVE PACKAGING
Remove shipping materials such as corner covers, shipping blocks
or pads.
Note! Be sure to remove the shipping clips or screws through the
header into the slab from the door before beginning the installation.
INSPECT DOOR
• Correct product (size, color, grid pattern, handing, glazing, energyefficiency requirements, etc.).
• Correct Handing. To determine door swing (left or right), face the
door from the side where hinges cannot be seen. Right handed doors
open to the right, while left handed doors open to the left.
If any of the above conditions represent a concern, do not install the
door. Contact your dealer or distributor for recommendations.
• Cosmetic damage.
• Product squareness (diagonal measurements must be within
1/4" difference).
2
INSPECT ROUGH OPENING
• Verify the width
and height of the
door frame are each
1/2" smaller than
the rough opening
width/height.
• Verify the rough
opening is square.
The (A) and (B)
measurements
should be the same.
Maximum allowable
deviation from
square is 1/4".
• Verify the rough opening is level and plumb (C) and (D). The
maximum allowable deviation is 1/8".
Verify Square, Level, and Plumb
• The rough opening sill must not be crowned or sagged (D).
• The exterior face of the rough opening must be in a single plane (E)
with less than 1/8" twist from corner to corner.
• Minimum double studs should be used at all rough openings.
A
C
B
D
E
• The header must be supported by trimmer studs.
Do not install the door unless the rough opening meets the above
conditions. Professional assistance may be necessary to correct problems
before installation.
IMPORTANT! The door should be finished either before installation or
immediately after (whichever is more convenient). Note! If removing
the slab from the frame for finishing, remove hinges from the jamb
only, do not remove hinges from the slab.
FOR RETROFIT INSTALLATIONS
For retrofit installations remove the old door and contact your local
waste management entities for proper disposal or recycling of products
being removed.

INSTALL DOOR
Warning! To avoid injury, use at least two people to install. Adequately
support the door until completely fastened.
Pre-hung doors will be either a one or two piece jamb system. One
piece jamb doors come without trim applied. Two-piece jamb doors
come in two sections. The inside and outside trim are already applied
to the main frame. The frame section with the pre-hung door is nailed
in place, then the other frame section with the outside trim slides in
from the other side and fits closely to the wall. The two sections are
assembled with a tongue and groove joint which is covered by the
door stop.
One piece jamb systems skip step 1 and begin with step 2.
