Sliding Door

Doors can be assembled using either lumber or galvanized Box Girts

These doors can be assembled using either standard 2″ x 4″ lumber or galvanized Box Girts turned on their 3 1/2″ sides. Vicwest recommends using 3 girts at the top of the door. Horizontals should be placed 24″ to 28″ on center, with one additional girt on top of the aluminum Bottom Door Guide.

Wood or steel inserts should be placed inside the vertical channel between each girt. Inserts should be permanently attached with screws, becoming part of the frame. This is necessary to help prevent damage to the door in windy conditions.

Please inquire with your Vicwest sales representative concerning door packages for correct sizing and accessories.
