RETRACTABLE INSTALLATION

STEP 1:

  1. Take the Top Track and place it into the reveal where you want to fit the gate.
  2. Cut to the correct length using a Hacksaw or a Cutting Disk if necessary.
  3. Drill 3 – 5 evenly spaced holes using an 8mm drill bit and drill into the Top Track.

STEP 2:

  1. Mark the pre-drilled holes of the Top Track onto the reveal where the Top Track will be fitted.
  2. Use an 8mm concrete drill bit and drill your marked holes.
  3. Place the wall plugs into the drilled holes.

STEP 3:

  1. Carefully lift the gate up and slide the Top Track over the gate’s Top Wheel Bearings.
  2. Once the Top Wheel Bearings are inside the Top Track you can install the Top Track whilst the door is hanging.
  3. Use the 8mm bolts and bolt the Top Track into position.
  4. Please ensure that the flights show towards the inside of the house.

STEP 4:  

  1. Once you have installed the Top Track, the gate will now be in a hanging position.
  2. Place the bottom track on the floor where you are mounting it.
  3. Cut to the correct length using a Hacksaw or a Cutting Disk if necessary.
  4. Drill 3 – 5 evenly spaced holes using a 6mm steel drill bit.
  5. Slide the Bottom Track into the gates Drop Bolts.
  6. Please ensure that all Drop Bolts in every Upright are within the Bottom Track.

STEP 5:

 

  1. Open the gate fully and make sure the gate is straight before you mark your pre drilled holes of your Bottom Track and Back Channel.
  2. You can do so by using a tape measure or spirit level.
  3. Once you are satisfied that the gate is straight you can mark the pre-drilled holes of the Bottom Track onto the floor.

STEP 6:

  1. Once complete you are now able to drill the Bottom Track holes using a 6mm concrete drill bit.
  2. Place plugs into the drilled holes.
  3. Once complete, fasten the Bottom Track using the 6mm (nail-in) screws.
  4. Ensure that all of the screws are all the way down to prevent the bottom legs from catching.

 

STEP 7:

  1. Open the gate fully to mark the pre-drilled holes of the back channel onto the wall.
  2. Drill the marked holes with an 8mm concrete drill bit.
  3. Place the wall plugs into the drilled holes.
  4. Use the 8mm bolts and bolt the Back Channel into position.

 

STEP 8:

  1. Place the Lock Bar to the wall and mark the pre drilled holes.
  2. Once you have marked the holes you are now able to drill using an 8mm concrete drill bit.
  3. Place plugs into the drilled holes
  4. Fasten your lock bar using the 8mm bolts.

 

STEP 9:

  1. Lubricate the Top and Bottom Track using lubricant spray or furniture spray. Cleaning the gate regularly will ensure you a hassle-free gate.

TIPS & TRICKS

Lock Bar

Fixing the Lock Bar is the most important part of the job. The Lock Bar must be 100% straight. If the wall is slightly skew, please use spacers at the back of the lock channel to ensure it fits 100% straight. Please note that the Lock Bar, fits inside the Top Track.

Drilling into Tiles

When drilling into tiles, try and drill into the grout so if you need to remove the gate at a later stage you are able to fill the grout again.

FACE FIX INSTALLATION

 

The recess installation guide for the gates and fixture, works exactly the same for mounting your gate or fixture as face fix.

However there are a few things to look out for when doing face fix.

How much to take your door over?

The TrelliGuard gate takes up as little as 20% of your opening. That should be a good indication as to how much you need to take your gate over for stacking purposes.

Is the lock accessible from both outside and inside?

If you have taken your gate over too much on the lock side it can cause an issue, in that from the inside of the house you can access the lock to unlock your gate. However, if it is over too, much how are you going to unlock your gate from the outside?

The best way to do this is taking your stacking side over by 20%, but to keep your lock side as close to the edge of the wall as possible to ensure a hassle-free entry and exit.
