Assembly and Installation Instructions
for Custom Wood, EpicVue™ and Fiberglass Exterior
Folding Door Systems (JII101)
Thank you for selecting JELD-WEN products. Attached are
JELD-WEN’s recommended installation instructions for Custom
Wood and Fiberglass Exterior Folding Doors. Read these instructions
thoroughly before beginning. They 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 indicated in
these instructions, contact a building professional. To adequately
protect your door, please refer to “Appropriate Protection for
Exterior Doors” for information on protection requirements at
www.jeld-wen.com. Areas such as Florida and the Texas TDI region
have different anchoring requirements based on product certification.
For information on specific products, visit www.floridabuilding.org
or www.tdi.texas.gov and follow the anchoring schedule given in
the drawings for the product instead of the anchoring schedule in
this document.
Newer construction methods have led to an increase in air and water
tightness in buildings. This frequently leads to negative air pressure
inside the house, which can draw water through very small openings.
Our installation method seals the door to the weather barrier (typically
building wrap) and uses a sill pan to capture and drain incidental storm
water from under the door.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION AND GLOSSARY
Not all exterior door types may be installed into every wall condition
in all areas. See our Appropriate Protection document for overhang
requirements at www.jeld-wen.com. Consult your local building
code official (or Authority having Jurisdiction) for applicable building
codes and regulations. Local building code requirements supersede
recommended installation instructions.
Please Note! Any door installation such that the sill is higher than
35 feet above ground level or into a wall condition not specifically
addressed in these instructions must be designed by an architect or
structural engineer. We recommend that all non pre-finished wood or
fiberglass components be finished with an appropriate paint or stain
prior to installation. See our Finishing document for details at
www.jeld-wen.com. Failure to properly finish or install square, level
and plumb and on a flat surface (without peak and valleys) could result
in denial of warranty claims for operational or performance problems.
Note to Installer: Provide a copy of these instructions to the building
owner. By installing this product, you acknowledge the terms and
conditions of the limited warranty as part of the terms of the sale.
GLOSSARY
Backer Rod (backing material)
A material (e.g. foam rod), placed into a joint primarily to control the
depth of the sealant.
Buck
A wood framework attached to the masonry inside a window or a door
rough opening.
Pilot Hole
A drilled hole that is no larger than the body of the screw (minus
the threads).
Rough Opening
The framed opening in a wall where a door is to be installed.
1
Shiplap
The layering method in which each layer overlaps the layer below it so
that water runs down the outside.
Sill Pan
A flashing component installed in the sill of the rough opening
underneath the door. Sill pans have upturned walls along the interior
edge and at both ends, creating a three-sided box. This component
serves as a collection device to drain incidental water to the exterior of
the building and should be properly sealed to the opening. The best sill
pan design has a positive slope to the exterior and offers continuous
support to the door’s sill.
Please allow sufficient time to properly prepare the rough opening,
install the door, and ensure its proper operation.
LANDINGS
These instructions
cover two door
sill conditions: the
step-down landing
and the continuous
slab landing. The
installation methods
vary slightly between
landing types.

ROUGH OPENINGS
This installation guide specifically addresses masonry/block wall,
sheathed wall and open-stud construction.
MASONRY/BLOCK WALL CONSTRUCTION
This installation assumes
that a building professional
has already properly
fastened and sealed a
framework of studs (often
called a buck) to the
concrete/masonry wall.
FULLY SHEATHED WALL CONSTRUCTION
The wall framing is
covered by sheathing and
the door will be mounted
inside of the rough
opening. This installation
assumes building wrap is
properly installed prior
to installation.

SAFETY AND HANDLING
SAFETY
• Read and fully understand ALL manufacturer’s instructions before
beginning. Failure to follow proper installation and finishing
instructions may result in the denial of warranty claims for
operational performance problems.
• Do not work alone. Two or more people are required. Use safe
lifting techniques.
• Use caution when handling glass. Broken or cracked glass can cause
serious injury.
• Wear protective gear (e.g. safety glasses, gloves, ear protection, etc.).
• Operate hand/power tools safely and follow manufacturer’s
operating instructions.
• Use caution when working at elevated heights.
• 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.
• 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
• Heed material manufacturer’s handling and application instructions.
• Protect adhesive surfaces from dirt, moisture, direct sunlight and
folding over onto themselves.
• Handle in vertical position; do not drag on floor.
• 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.
• Protect from exposure to direct sunlight during storage.
• Install only into vertical walls and when conditions and sheathing
are dry.
IF INJURY OCCURS, IMMEDIATELY SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION!
MATERIALS AND TOOLS
PROVIDED MATERIALS
• #10 x 2-1/2" corrosion resistant flat head screws for frame assembly.
• #12 x 3" flat head installation screws for track assembly. These must
have a minimum 2" embedment into solid header material. If these
screws are not long enough, use longer screws.
• #9 x 1-1/2" flat head screws to fasten hinges to panels.
NEEDED MATERIALS
Note! JELD-WEN exterior window and door products should be
installed in accordance with JELD-WEN’s recommended installation
and flashing directions, which are shipped with the products or can
be found on our website: www.jeld-wen.com. Note that alternative
installation methods and flashing systems may be utilized at the
installer’s or owner’s discretion and, in such situations the installation
should be done in accordance with the flashing manufacturer’s
instructions. Follow all material manufacturer’s instructions for
proper use and compatibility. When using flashing, spray adhesive/
primer, sealant and foam products, we recommend using the
same manufacturer and verifying compatibility. It is the End User’s
responsibility to determine if dissimilar materials are compatible to the
substrates in the application.
• Non-compressible or non-water degradable shims.
• Sill pan: It is best practice to use a pre-formed, rigid, positively sloped,
pvc pan that provides continuous support. We recommend using
SureSill™ Sloped Sill Pan™, manufactured by SureSill™, Ltd. An alternative
would be a non-sloped pre-formed sill pan or one that can be fabricated
on site from metal or vinyl sheet material with the proper tools.
2
• Sealant: We recommend OSI® QUAD® Max Sealant or equivalent. This
can be used in any application and can be painted or ordered in a
color matched product, if desired.
• Polyurethane low expansion Window and Door foam: We recommend
OSI® QUAD® Foam or equivalent.
• Drip cap if required because of door location and exposure. Doors
with an adequate overhang (see our Appropriate Protection
document at www.jeld-wen.com) may not need a drip cap.
For installations into a Buck:
• Liquid applied flashing (Protecto Wrap LWM 200 or equivalent).
For installations into a stud-framed wall:
• 4", 6", or 9" (as required by local code and window configuration)
wide self-adhered flashing: We recommend OSI® Butyl Flash Tape
or equivalent.
Note! Follow all material manufacturer’s instructions for proper use
and compatibility.

FOR RETROFIT INSTALLATIONS
After removing the old door, remove sufficient cladding (siding, stucco,
etc.) to expose enough intact building wrap to properly seal the door
system to the opening. If damaged, apply new building wrap in shiplap
manner. Verify the rough opening framing is structurally sound. Contact
your local waste management entities for proper disposal or recycling
of products being removed.
INSTALL SILL PAN
Note! Sill pans are not designed to be used with ADA or U-Channel type
sills. Weather-proofing these types of sills is the responsibility of the
installer. An adequate overhang and a positive slope are recommend
with these sill types.
The sill can be prepared using one of two methods: We recommend
SureSill™ Sloped Sill Pan™ available from SureSill at www.suresill.com,
building supply stores, and some manufacturing locations. As an
alternative, a sill pan can be fabricated on site, by following the
instructions below. If installing a SureSill™ sill pan, follow SureSill’s
instructions for installation and skip to section 5 “PREPARE
STUD-FRAMED WALL“.

The frame should be
checked for square and twist.
• Verify the width and height of the door are each 1/2"-3/4" 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 plumb and level (C, E and D). The
maximum allowable deviation is 1/16" for every 2' of rough opening
(not to exceed 1/8").
• The rough opening sill must not be crowned or sagged (D) and be
level or sloped (positive slope) to the exterior.
