Door Installation: Secure the frame in place, starting from the corners and adding fixings and packers every 400mm. Remember to maintain the level throughout. Double-check vertical, horizontal, and diagonal alignments before final fixing. Ensure all screws are sub-flush to avoid interference with the floating roller hardware. Finally, re-install the door jamb.

Door Glazing: Place the glazing packers and position the glass panels for alignment in each sash. Secure them using the innovative Korniche Speedbead system, which takes just seconds to clip into place. Remember to install the top and bottom beads first, followed by the vertical ones. The Korniche deep glazing tool allows for easy bead removal and repositioning without damaging the frame or bead.
