Products will be produced using industry best practices and methods for all hardware, gaps and
spacing reductions, horizontal and vertical protecting, and so on
. The base and walls for any RODA unit( s) should be built with correct wood obstructing prior to setup to ensure the weight of the enclosure is correctly supported as it may lead to item failure. At minimum, 2 x 4 blocking is needed at the area of any structural member of the unit including, however not restricted to: hinges, clamps, and header brackets. All fasteners at these locations are needed to be installed into the stopping. Basco is not accountable for cracks on the fiberglass or acrylic modules or product failure of any kind that arises from insufficient blocking.
Depending of the panel size and or door hinge layout, a support bar or header may be needed for correct stability.
Flooring to Ceiling panel( s) will be manufactured to be lift and drop when using U-Channel as the horizontal securing technique unless kept in mind otherwise.
Security tempered glass can not be cut and is resistant to damage, however it is susceptible to breakage if incorrectly dealt with through unequal pressure or if an unguarded edge can be found in contact with any strong surface. Basco is not liable for breakage after installation is completed.
Curb Width Requirements for Rolling RODA Shower Doors
Understanding your curb width versus your flat width is very important when installing sliding shower doors. Normally, 3 inches is the smallest width a curb can be. However, with cautious measurement the doors can be installed on a smaller flat width. Please know whether the sliding shower door can fit depends on the discretion of the installer.
Setup Standards for Frameless Glass Doors
Example of appropriate thread engagement
Our intent at Basco is to ensure that our consumers have access to products based upon a range of styles and preferences. Please refer to these standards for setting up heavy (3/8-inch) glass doors on fiberglass and acrylic substrates. The base and walls for any RODA system( s) need to be built with the correct wood obstructing prior to installation to ensure the weight of the enclosure is effectively supported.
When the U-Channel or glass clamp is screwed into the limit, the weight of the glass sits on top of the screws, necessitating the structural support.
Without correct structural support, when the panel or door is moved this could cause the screws to move a little. Gradually, this small motion expands the hole the screw is in and ultimately cracks (spider webs) the gelcoat or acrylic and begins to break down the fiberglass backing.
Acrylic or fiberglass walls have actually obstructing set up by the producer. However, the place of that backing might not match the location of where holes require to be drilled for vertical u-channel, wall install hinges, and headers.
Without proper backing behind the walls the door or panel(s) will eventually slip out of the thin walls.
All structural aspects of RODA doors must follow these standards. These components include but are not limited to: hinges, headers, and clamps.
Basco requires a minimum of 1-1/4" thread engagement of all fasteners into the blocking at any load bearing location. Depending upon the application the client maybe needed to supply the correct fasteners to guarantee adequate engagement.
U-Channel might be secured into locations without blocking, leaving out fiberglass and acrylic modules and/or bases, when wall plugs are used. Fiberglass and/or acrylic modules need proper obstructing in all locations, consisting of a u-channel.
Metal studs or strapping are not acceptable replacement Check over here for securing load-bearing hardware.
Always describe local building regulations. Local building code might supersede Basco's requirements. Basco's requirements are to be considered as minimum requirements.
