Rough opening measurement

See picture below in order to know how to accurately measure rought opening. First, three times measure the widths between the studs of the entryway. On picture 1 they are highlighted with arrowed lines and A, B, C. Be sure to record the smallest width of the 3 measurements. Second, measure the height on both sides (see picture 2 A, B lines) and also record the smallest measurement.

Rought Opening Width Measurment
Rought Opening Height Measurment

Determining your Door Size (for the single and double door configurations)

From your rough opening width subtract 2 1/2", and 1 1/4" from the height. This will determine your door slab size

Please Note: Masello Di Rovere (Solid Wood Oak) collection doors have thicker frames. Substract minimum 2 3/4" from the rough opening width (recommended: 3 1/4") and minimum 2 1/4" from the rough opening height (recommended: 2 1/2").

Door Construction Overview

A Swinging Door itself can't be used in a proper way without its frame. Our door frames consist from the following components: Single Rabbeted Jambs, L-shaped Casings (Belwooddoors Include Flat Casings). A Door slab gets attached to one of the Jambs. The Casings are applied around the door into the jambs for decorating purposes. All components are finished with the same Veneer or Lacquer as the door slab.

Single Rabbeted Jambs

Single Rabbeted Jambs

L-Casings

Jamb Extensions are additional parts for extending the door frame. If the wall thickness is greater than this standard jamb width, extensions must be used. Jamb width extensions come in identical Veneer finishes as the Door. Standard frame covers 3 7/8” to 4 7/8”. Jamb extensions give you the ability to cover additional widths.

Door Swing Direction

Swing direction refers to the hinged side of the door and the way the door swings: inside or outside of the room or home. It is important to choose correct swing direction. In some cases pre-hung door with wrong chosen swing direction could not be reversed.

For ALL GLASS MODELS: Please keep in mind that the shiny side of the glass is always on the OUTSIDE!

Please review the illustrations below in order to have clear understanding of door swing directions.

Single Doors Swing Directions

Left or Right Hand means that hinged side of the door is located from your left or right hand side accordingly. Location where you are standing when determining swing direction is considered as outside.

Double Doors Specific Configurations

Astragal

The Astragal is a flat lath which is used in double door configuration. It mounts to the edge of the door from the outside. Astragal attaches to the non-active door in an inswing direction and on the active door in an outswing direction. Astragal closes the clearance gap between the two slabs. It is made from high-pressed MDF covered by natural wood veneer and has the same finish as the door. Astragals mainly used with the Flush Bolt closure option.

Closure Options

Magnetic Catch

Magnetic Catch

This is the latching mechanism which consists of a magnet from one side and metal plate from the opposite side. It is mounted on the top of the door. Metal plate is mounted on the door jamb. This option is generally used on closet and cabinet doors where a latch is not used or needed. Mainly paired with Dummy Handles or knobs.

Flush Bolt

Flush Bolt

Flush Bolt is a bolt installed on a door side in order to lock it in place. It is mainly used in Double Door Configurations where one door is locked in place and the other is in active use. If necessary the door locked with the flush bolt can be opened.

Double Doors Swing Directions

Swing Direction for double door configuration depends on Closure Option. Double doors with flush bolt closures have one door slab as active and the other as passive. Depending on which slab will be active or passive, swing direction should be chosen.
When the closure option is Magnet catch then both door slabs will be active and you can choose the way the doors swing; In-swing / Out-swing. Please refer to the following illustration in order to determine your double door swing direction.

Pocket Doors Information

A pocket door is a sliding door that slides back into a compartment (pocket) in the wall. These types of doors slide right into the wall and don't have any hinges like standard swing doors. Also these doors don't have any swing direction. Please review the illustrations below in order to have clear idea of pocket doors in single and double configurations.

Single Pocket Door

Double Pocket Door


Pocket doors are usually used when there is no room for the swinging door or for achieving an architectural effect.

The Door Slab slides on rollers that are placed in an overhead track. In some cases bottom door guides are needed for a stable slide.

Wall Preparation

Construct Rough Opening header must be SQUARE and PLUMB with studs and LEVEL. Minimum Height is 84 1/2" (2,14m) width is 2x Door width plus 1" (25mm).

If you stuck at any step please referr to the original installation instructions here or contact Johnson Hardware Customer service at 1-800-837-5664

Measure up from finished floor 80-3/4" (2.05m) or from sub-floor to 81-1/2" (2.07m). This will give 3/4" (19mm) to 1-1/2" (38mm) clearance under door. Mark each rough stud and drive a flat head nail on center, leaving 1/8" (3mm) protuding. (Frame header end brackets will rest on these nails).

3. Snap a chalk line on floor even with side jambs.

Installing Pocket Frame Header

Slip slots in Frame Header End Plates over nails in rough studs. LEVEL HEADER. Set nails and drive nails through remaining holes in end plates. (If you have the 2/6" (761mm) or Universal Frame and using another size door, cut Frame Header according to cutting instructions)

(Note: If using 1-3/4" (45mm) door, use 1575 Adapter Kit.) Slip fingers of Floor Plate into Split Studs as shown. Butt Split Studs against header nailer and nail into place. Nail other Split Studs midway in "Pocket" opening. Plumb Split Studs between chalk lines and nail to floor. (On masonry, use industrial adhesive or Tapcon fasteners.)

6. Apply desired wall material. Wall material is brought clear to edge of opening.
WARNING: Use nails no longer than necessary. Nails must not protrude into pocket or door will be damaged. To provide a firm nailing surface, slip a 2-1/8" (54mm) wide board between Split Studs temporarily.
