Compact door installation made easy

Have you ever installed a Compact folding door? Yes? Then you already know that you have to pay attention to different things when installing the door than with a roller door or an overhead door. Nevertheless, it makes sense to refresh your knowledge from time to time. If you have never installed a Rolflex folding door, it is important that you acquire the necessary specialist knowledge. Because you can only install the door quickly and easily if you know exactly what to look out for.

The installation of the Compact folding door

We have been offering training courses for installers in our Compact Academy for several years and are always very happy to welcome our dealers here at Rolflex. However, we understand that it is not always possible to let mechanics take part in training courses at Rolflex, as these are indispensable for the company. To ensure that we can support you around the clock anyway, we have made installation videos that show the installation of the Compact door in detail.

Click on the following links to find the videos with German, French or Italian subtitles.

TIP! Make sure you always have the installation manual at hand. You can find it here.

Next step is to mount the cable tensioner and the cable disc on the folding plate. Make sure you are working on the correct side and following the exact order.

Now you can mount the necessary parts on the motor side. Make sure you assemble the parts in the right place on the correct side.

The side motor of the Compact folding door can be universally installed on the left or right. At the beginning of the installation, plan on which side the motor has to be installed.

Precision is required when installing the steel cable. Ensure that the cables are routed correctly and that the cable drum runs in the right direction.

Use the pin to align the bottom brackets on the bottom panel so that they are in the correct position.

6.2 Panel installation

When installing the panels, make sure that the panels are positioned correctly on top of each other. They are already in the correct order in the package.

8. Installation seals and safety devices

The seals and safety devices must be installed in a specific way for the door to function properly.
