3. At job site, drill 5/16Љ holes in the frames and
headers for mounting to the backing in the wall.
Space holes 6Љ in from the end, then every 36Љ.
4. Stand the left and right frames up against the wall,
one on each side of the door opening so they are
located correctly. Check to see that the frames are
plumb and square to the door opening. Attach the
frames to the wall with the #18 x 4Љ Phillips flat
head sheet metal screws that are provided. Verify
that the frames are still plumb and square to the
door opening. See Figure 2.
5. Mount the Sliding Door Track and Header assem-
bly above the door frame. See Figure 3. For a
single door, mount the end of the Track flush with
the edge of the side frame. For a bi-parting door,
the center stops on the Door Track should be
centered above the door opening. In all cases,
anchor the Door Header with the #18 x 4Љ Phillips
flat head sheet metal screws.
6. Seal with Silicone caulking around the side frames
and header after tightening the screws.

Joining Door Sections with Cam Locks
CAUTION: All parts have been pre-
assembled at the factory. No Drilling should
be required. Be careful to not overdrive any
fasteners.
Doors over 120Љ inches in width must be field
assembled as follows:
1. Begin by laying the sections of the door face down
on a clean and level surface. Block as needed so
the door sections are aligned. See Figure 4.
2. Apply silicone caulk to both long edges, then slide
the door sections together. Cam lock the sections
with a 3/8Љ hex wrench (supplied). Turn clockwise
until the lock is engaged with the Hinging pin.
See Figure 5.
3. Note that interior and exterior surfaces of the door
sections along the joint should be flush and
smooth. Install cam hole covers.
4. Remove the Adjuster Rod and Jam Nuts. Install
the 10 gauge Metal Plate at the top and the bot-
tom of the door. Anchor the strips with #14 x 1-1/2Љ
Phillips flat head screws that have been provided.
Reinstall the Adjuster Rod. See Figure 6.

Hanging Door Section on Track Hanger Channel
1. Install the Track Hanger Channel on top of the
door. Fasten it to the door with the Square Wash-
ers, flat washers, Jam Nuts, nylon Lock Nuts, and
3/4Љ Adjuster Rods. Make sure the Adjuster Rod
comes through the nylon Lock Nut on the Square
Washer no more than 1/16Љ. Adjust the Track
Hanger Channel temporarily to 3-3/4Љ from the top
of the door to the bottom of the Channel. Final
adjustment is made after the Door is hanging on
the Door Track. See Figure 7.
2. Place the door section next to the door opening
and lean it against the steel Door Track. Be careful
to not damage the Sweep Gasket at the bottom of
the door section.
3. Lift the door and place the Track Rollers on the
Round Welded Rod of the Door Track.
4. Install the Anti-Jump Bolt or Anti-Jump Roller to
keep the door on the track. Adjust to a gap of 1/8Љ.
See Figure 8.
Adjusting the Door Height
1. For a single slide door, set the door in the closed
position and adjust the door height so the Sweep
Gasket lightly touches the floor and the door lines
up with the side frames. See Figure 9. To adjust
the height, loosen both the top and bottom Jam
Nuts and raise or lower the door with the welded
nut on the Adjuster Rod. See Figure 7.
2. For a bi-parting door, set the doors in the closed position and adjust the door height so the Sweep Gasket
lightly touches the floor. Use the Adjuster Rod to align the two door sections for a proper seal where the
doors come together. Begin by adjusting the door height to produce a slight gap (approximately 1Љ) at the
top of the doors, when the bottom of the doors are just touching. This should allow the doors to seal com-
pletely from top to bottom, when fully closed. Readjust as necessary to achieve a uniform seal. See Figure
9. To adjust the height, loosen both the top and bottom Jam Nuts and raise or lower the door with the
Adjuster Rod. Tighten the Jam Nuts to lock the door in position. See Figure 7.

Stay Roller Installation
1. The purpose of the Stay Roller is to keep the
bottom of the door against the gaskets in the
closed position and to keep the door from kicking
out at the bottom when moving.
2. For shipping purposes, the Stay Roller assemblies
are secured on a piece of wood located on the
front side of the Door Header. Remove them and
the eight capscrews and lockwashers for installa-
tion. See Figure 10.
3. Be sure each Stay Roller Lock Nut is centered in
the adjustment slot. Note the distance from the
wall for your door size and type. See Figure 11.
With the door(s) fully closed, position the center of
the Trailing Edge Stay Roller 3/4Љ in from the end
of the Door Snubber Wedge. For Single Slide
Doors, center the Leading Edge Stay Roller on the
flat spot on the Door Snubber. This will also posi-
tion the left side of the bracket flush with the door
opening. See Figure 11.
4. Use four 3/8Љ x 2-3/4Љ concrete wedge anchors to
fasten each Stay Roller to the floor. See Figure 12.

the door, loosen the Lock Nut securing the UHMW
Stay Roller to the Floor Bracket. Move the Stay
Roller in the slotted hole until proper gasket com-
pression is achieved. Tighten the Lock Nut to
secure the Roller in position. See Figure 15.
4. After the door has been hung and the gasket has
been adjusted for compression, go inside the
room, close the door, and check all four sides for
proper seal. Make sure no daylight is coming
through. Check the center if you have a bi-parting
door.

Connect the S-JO Cord
1. If not already installed, locate the twist-lock plug at
the end of the SJ-O Cord. The SJ-O Cord is
prewired to the Junction Box on the end of the
Door Header. See Figure 16.
NOTE: Bi-parting doors have Junction Boxes on each
end of the Door Header and on the trailing edge of
each door.
If using a large door with camlocked sections, look for
the twist-lock plug at the top of the door and connect
as below.
2. Locate the twist-lock receptacle in the bottom of
the Junction Box on the trailing edge of the door.
3. Align the plug with the slots in the receptacle and
insert the plug until it bottoms out – twist the
locking ring to the right until it locks.

adjustment becomes necessary at the time of
installation or later, it can be accomplished at the
Safety Release without disconnecting the Chain.
See Figure 19.
1. Pull the Safety Release Cable to release the Drive
Chain from the Door.
2. Manually slide the door to disengage the Drive
Chain Bullet from the Safety Release Tube.
3. Loosen the Lock Nuts on both Theaded Rods.
4. Turn the Drive Chain Bullet clockwise to tighten
the Chain. When making a large adjustment, it
may be necessary to remove a link from the Chain.
This can be done at the Master Link connected to
the Threaded Rod.
5. When the Drive Chain is properly adjusted, slide
the door back to reconnect it to the Chain. The
Drive Chain Bullet will automatically engage the
Release Latch when the Safety Release Tube and

Pull Cord Installation
There are many types of devices used to control door operator. The most common are pull cord switches or
stations, three button stations (i.e. open, close, stop) and radio–control. All three may be used separately, in
combination, or all together. Our descriptions will deal with separate devices only. However, to use more than
one type of device, you need only follow the direction for each type of device used. The control circuit is
24 VAC. Consult local electrical codes before proceeding with permanent installation.

Locate the Switches
1. Do not mount the pull cord switch in the air flow of
the coils. If the pull cord switch must be mounted
in front of the coils, provide an air baffle (by others)
to prevent icing of the switch. (Icing of the switch in
the open position will cause the door to run
constantly.) The air baffle must be of adequate
size to protect the pull cord itself, but not obstruct
function of the coils. Air flow will move the cord
and activate the switch. Consult the cold storage
contractor. See Figure 20.

Pull Cord Installation (Continued)
2. Mount the pull cord switch to the ceiling using the
switch mount holes or the mounting plate provided.
Wire the switch with standard conduit and water-
tight fittings. Locate the switch at least 24Љ from the
conduit penetration through the ceiling or wall.
See Figure 21.
WARNING: Drilling of the pull cord switch
will void any and all Warranties of the
complete door.
3. Locate the pull cord switch away from the door and
out of the way of lift trucks and loads. It is most
common to locate one pull cord at the interior and
one at the exterior of the door opening.
4. Fasten the switch securely to the wall or ceiling
and attach the pull cord to the switch arm. Allow
the pull cord to hang straight; do not use guide
rings or screw eyes to reposition the cord. Such
items can hinder operation of the cord or switch.
Install the Wiring
5. Install conduit and wire (according to code) from
the pull switch to the Door Header Junction Box.
See Figure 22.
6. Remove the covers from the pull cord switches
and junction box.
7. Connect one of the pull switch wires to the Red
wire in the junction box. Connect the other wire to
the Brown wire in the junction box. See Figure 23.
8. Connect the second pull cord switch in a similar
manner. Replace the covers on the pull cord
switches and junction box.

Door Travel Adjustment
NOTE: Use the Jog Open and Jog Close pushbuttons
to control the door until the travel limits are adjusted.
See Figure 24.
WARNING: Do not allow the door to run too
far or damage will occur!
WARNING: Do not open the control box
unless authorized by the manufacturer.
Unauthorized tampering with interior
components will void any and all warranties.
Set the Door Open travel limit
NOTE: If the Green lamp is not on, and the Yellow
lamp is flashing, the Door Sensing Edge is set too
sensitive and must be adjusted first. See Adjusting
the Door Sensing Edge, page 12.
With the power on, the Green lamp should be flashing
slowly, indicating the door travel limits are not yet set.
1. Open the door to the desired open position with
the Jog Open pushbutton (leading edge of the
door flush with the room opening). The Open Limit
lamp (Yellow) will be on solid. See Figure 24.
2. Before the Open Limit pushbutton lamp goes out
(in 5 seconds), push the Open Limit button. The
Yellow lamp will flash for 5 seconds, indicating the
Door Open travel limit is set.
3. With the door still in the open position, verify that
the Proximity Switch is activated by the Proximity
Flag (on the door). See Figure 25.
• If the Red LED is on, proceed to Set the Door
Close travel limit.
• If the Red LED is not on, adjust the target Flag
up or down as necessary to cause the LED to
turn on. Maximum gap is 1/4Љ. Then, readjust the
Door Open travel limit. See Figure 25.
WARNING: Do not bend or remove metal
flag. Serious injury or damage could result.
Set the Door Close travel limit
With the power on and the Door Open travel limit set,
the Green lamp will still be flashing slowly, indicating
that both limits are not yet set. In the closed position,
the leading edge of the Door is flush with the outside
edge of the vertical gasket on the Side Frame.

Set the Door Close travel limit (Cont.)
1. Jog the door to approximately 1Љ less than the fully
closed position. The Door Close limit will be set
here because the Operator will drift the Door
approximately 1Љ farther closed upon the first use
of the Pull Cord. With the door in this position, the
Close Limit lamp (Blue) will be on solid.
2. Before the Close Limit pushbutton lamp goes out
(5 seconds), push the Close Limit button. This will
set the Door Close travel limit. The Blue lamp will
flash for 5 seconds, indicating the Door Close
travel limit is set. See Figure 26.
Test the Door travel limits
When both door travel limits have been set, open and
close the door to test the operation.
1. Test run the door by pulling on the Pull Cord,
Remote Control, or other operating device.
2. Note the position the door stops in both directions,
and readjust the travel limits as necessary.
Adjust the Door Sensing Edge
Locate the plastic Sensitivity Adjusting Screw on the
face of the Door Junction Box. Do Not remove the
junction box cover plate. Turn the Screw out to
decrease sensitivity or in to increase sensitivity.
See Figure 27.
Optimum sensitivity can be achieved using a simple
two step process.
1. With the power on and the Door open, note the
Yellow lamp on the Control box. See Figure 26.
• If the Yellow lamp is flashing, turn the Adjusting
Screw out until it just stops flashing, plus
1
⁄8 turn.
• If the Yellow lamp is off, turn the Adjusting
Screw in until it starts flashing.Then, turn the
Screw out until the Yellow lamp just stops
flashing, plus
1
⁄8 turn. At this point, the Green
lamp may turn on or flash – this is not a problem.
2. Test the sensitivity. Start the Door closing with the
Jog Close pushbutton. Touch the Sensing Edge
with a tool, to reverse the Door direction and verify
the proper sensitivity. See Figure 28.
This completes the adjustment. If the Door travel
limits have already been set, test them and adjust as
necessary.
