--

PART 1: Measuring
1. Measure the width of the opening (between the columns)
2. Mark the center of the opening
3. Use the center point and mark-out the daylight opening of the door
4. This is not the roller door width, as you need to subtract the tracks widths

PART 2: Door Jambs
1. Align the door jamb with the mark on the ground
2. Place a mark where the jamb intersects rafter
3. Extend the mark using combination square
4. Cut along the lines
5. Ensure the jamb is level and on the marked concrete line
6. Tek the jamb on to the rafter
7. Step drill and then bolt
8. Tek the side girts on to the jamb
9. Repeat steps for the other side

PART 3: Footings
1. Tek the roller door footing brackets on to the door jambs
2. Measure & mark 100mm (can differ) from the slab edge
3. Drill the hole for the anchor bolt
4. Hammer in the anchor bolt
5. Tighten using a rattle gun

PART 4: Header
1. Mark the height of the roller door on to the door jambs
2. Tek the header brackets above the mark on the door jamb
3. Tek the header beam on to the header brackets

PART 5: Bracket Arms
1. Measure the radius of the door
2. Use the door radius to place a mark above the header beam
3. Tek the bracket arm in to place
4. Step drill a bolt hole
5. Bolt in to place
6. Ensure brackets are bolted securely. If done incorrectly, it is extremely hazardous

PART 6: Tracks
1. Bend up the track ends, to prevent the door from catching on them
2. Mark the track height
3. Cut to length
4. Attach track brackets
5. Tek the tracks on to the jambs

PART 7: Installing the Door
1. A duct lift is the recommended way to lift a roller door into place
2. If the door is low, muscle can also be used to lift it in to place
3. Screw the roller door in to place
4. Tighten
5. Unwrap the roller door

PART 8: Lock
1. Step drill holes for the lock
2. Check if the door locks, file the holes if it does not
3. Test the lock

DISCLAIMER
A roller door is the largest moving object in a shed. It is dangerous and critical that installation is done correctly.

If you are unsure about anything, we recommended asking a professional to install it instead.

Please take care when installing a roller door and triple check everything.

We take no responsibly for injuries, damage or incorrectly installed doors as a result of the contents in this video.

Please note this is a guide and is not suitable for all door types or manufactures.

User Friendly Design

Designed by an engineer who has personally built well over 100 sheds, and in doing so, worked out the best way to design sheds that are user-friendly to build. We have used our experience from building sheds, to gradually refine our shed kits, making them easier to build. The end result of this refinement is a shed kit that is marginally harder to make, but much quicker to build.

Easier to Assemble, β€œLike Lego”

It is essential for businesses to have a goal. We decided that ours would be to make sheds that are easier to assemble on site. Putting more emphasis and care into the manufacturing phase reduces mistakes and results in less time spent on site.

What Makes Our Shed Kits Easier to Assemble?

Our shed kits use bolted connections instead of tek screws, even on our smaller sheds. We do still use teks for sheeting, to ensure that they are watertight.

  • Largely Bolted together
  • Purlins bolted to rafters
  • Girts bolted to columns
  • Less reliance on teks holding the structure together
  • Bolt holes are pre-punched, minimising the need for constant measuring and reducing mistakes
