The process of installing a Hillaldam industrial door

Industrial Hillaldam sliding doors are strong, sturdy, and durable heavy sliding doors that can offer your establishment with much needed security and protection against the elements, as well as a convenient way for your employees and vehicles to quickly enter and exit your building. 

Installing an industrial Hillaldam sliding door is a task that should only be performed by trained professionals, but for the sake of curiosity, we’ve decided to give a quick general guide to installing sliding doors.


Pre-installation handling

ü Your sliding door should never be exposed to any rainy, damp or wet conditions. Keep your door in a dry area until it is installed.

ü If you’re using wood as the primary material for your industrial door, we recommend that you allow it to adjust to the room’s temperature before installing it, especially if it’s an internal industrial door. Leave it out for about 2-3 days before installation in whichever area you plan on installing it in.

ü Industrial doors should be stored in areas with good ventilation. They should be positioned horizontally with at least 3 supports that are a minimum of 75mm from the floor. The door should never be exposed to natural elements prior to installation.
