Products will be produced utilizing market finest practices and strategies for all hardware, gaps and
spacing deductions, horizontal and vertical protecting, etc
. The base and walls for any RODA unit( s) need to be constructed with proper wood obstructing prior to setup to ensure the weight of the enclosure is effectively supported as it may result in item failure. At minimum, 2 x 4 blocking is required at the location of any structural member of the system including, however not limited to: hinges, clamps, and header brackets. All fasteners at these places are needed to be set up into the blocking. Basco is not accountable for cracks on the fiberglass or acrylic modules or product failure of any kind that arises from insufficient stopping.
Depending of the panel size and or door hinge design, a support bar or header might be required for proper stability.
Flooring to Ceiling panel( s) will be manufactured to be lift and drop when utilizing U-Channel as the horizontal protecting method unless kept in mind otherwise.
Security tempered glass can not be cut and is resistant to breakage, however it is susceptible to breakage if poorly dealt with through unequal pressure or if an unguarded edge comes in contact with any solid surface. Basco is not accountable for damage after setup is finished.
Suppress Width Requirements for Rolling RODA Shower Doors
Understanding your curb width versus your flat width is essential when setting up moving shower doors. Generally, three inches is the smallest width a curb can be. Nevertheless, with careful measurement the doors can be set up on a smaller flat width. Please know whether the moving 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 guarantee that our clients have access to products based on a variety of designs and choices. Please describe these guidelines for installing heavy (3/8-inch) glass doors on fiberglass and acrylic substrates. The base and walls for any RODA unit( s) need to be built with the proper wood blocking prior to setup to make sure the weight of the enclosure is properly supported.
When the U-Channel or glass clamp is screwed into the limit, the weight of the glass sits on top of the screws, demanding the structural assistance.
Without correct structural assistance, when the panel or door is moved this could cause the screws to move slightly. Over time, this slight motion increases the size of the hole the screw remains in and eventually cracks (spider webs) the gelcoat or acrylic and starts to break down the fiberglass support.
Acrylic or fiberglass walls have obstructing set up by the producer. However, the location of that backing might not match the place of where holes need to be drilled for vertical u-channel, wall mount hinges, and headers.
Without proper support behind the walls the door or panel(s) will eventually slip out of the thin walls.
All structural elements of RODA doors should follow these guidelines. These components include however are not restricted to: hinges, headers, and clamps.
Basco requires a minimum of 1-1/4" thread engagement of all fasteners into the obstructing at any load bearing location. Depending on the application the customer Learn more perhaps required to provide the proper fasteners to make sure adequate engagement.
U-Channel might be secured into locations without blocking, omitting fiberglass and acrylic modules and/or bases, when wall plugs are utilized. Fiberglass and/or acrylic modules require correct blocking in all areas, including a u-channel.
Metal studs or strapping are not appropriate substitutes for protecting load-bearing hardware.
Always refer to regional building regulations. Local structure code may supersede Basco's requirements. Basco's requirements are to be considered as minimum requirements.
