INSTALLING CURVED PATIO DOORS MADE EASY
Installing curved doors for the patio is very straightforward with Balcony Systems curved glass doors. While we invested a great deal of effort into the creation of curved sliding doors systems that not are only beautiful, tough and virtually maintenance-free, we recognise that they need to be as effort-free as possible for you when it comes to fitting them into place.
We have a network of experienced registered installers who can fit them for you if you wish but, truth be told, our curved sliding glass doors have been made so that they are well within the capabilities of a competent builder or door installer.
Having said that, we are always just a phone call or email away if you need any advice.
DEFLECTION OF BEAMS OR OPENINGS
Windows and doors should be installed into structural opening lintel/portal frame where the opening shall be designed to support and transfer loads to foundations without undue movement, with all loads designed to be transferred from the façade to the primary structure. The actual permissible deflection would normally be determined by the building designer in accordance with structural codes. For optimum performance it is normal to design nominally zero, i.e. <1mm, serviceability deflection.
- 1mm deflection/serviceability limit
- 3mm deflection will affect the coverage weather strips and likely to affect the performance of doors
- 10mm will affect the safety of doors and would cause operation problems
