Kuiken Brothers recently adding a brand new display to our Midland Park, NJ Millwork Showroom and this one gives the term “opening” a whole new meaning. The install of this new Weiland Door means that we are now the very first displaying dealer of Weiland Doors in northern New Jersey. For the past few months we have been sending our team of millwork experts and service technicians to Weiland’s Factory in Oceanside, California for product training sessions where they were able to learn directly from the Weiland team to help understand specification, quotation and best installation practices for jobsite consultations with our builder and remodeler customer partners in the markets we serve.
Below are a series of images showing parts of the installation process, including close-ups of the high-performance flush bottom track and the drainage system. Make sure to check out this system as it hugs the ground at a mere 3/16″ clearance, making it virtually invisible.
Our first impression … Neat packaging. The track comes neatly packaged, pre-assembled and just rolls right out of the packaging. This part is very simple and since each track is custom engineered at Weiland’s factory for each door, there are no “stock” components so they’ll all come together as designed.
Above: This is the foundation where the track will be installed. Typically you would be drilling into concrete but you can also drill into wood like we do here. Washers are set to the proper height with a guide which you can use to set your laser level to (marked in blue with the painters tape).
Above: The track is set and adjusted to ensure that it is level.
Above: This is a close-up of the drainage system. For display purposes this one is cut short, but typically all of the pipe is interconnected and is run away from the building. So, in the unlikely event the door is left open during a rain storm, the water will still properly drain and not impact the components, ensuring long-term durability.
For good measure, a story pool guide is used to ensure that the height is the same across the top frame.
The side jamb has to be absolutely straight to ensure that the door continues to operate properly. You can also see that the side jamb is sitting on the track with a half-inch space for adjustments.
Once everything was in-place, the panels were lifted and set into place. Each panel here is approximately 5′ wide X 10′ tall. Check out the video below to see how smooth these doors operate
