The pocket doors are ideal for rooms where space is limited, for example in the attic. The Navibloc® aluminum frame fits directly into the thickness of a Placo® partition. It can be painted to match the entire partition. Closed aluminum screens with a broom seal provide very good sound insulation. Their decliping makes it easy to remove and install the door. The door can be painted without removing the whole. Each door is delivered with a stainless steel bowl handle and a pull sleeve.

- Dressing the partition
1. Sufficient space must be provided in the frame of the partition to accommodate the door block.
2. The block, pre-assembled, must be placed vertically (check with bubble levels). Slide the longer of the two rails between the door and the door block: this is the manual rail, on which the door will slide inside the partition. The opening stop must be placed opposite to the door frame.
3. Position the door block on the metal frame by pressing on the upright. Check the vertical uprightness of the upright (bubble level), essential for the proper functioning of the door.
4. Remove the finishing gasket inside the frame to secure the frame to the stud with the five screws provided in the kit.
5. Slide the profile under the frame tab and push it to the stop. Fasten the profile via the fixing points provided for this purpose, with screws adapted to the nature of the floor. Check the alignment of the upper profile and lower profile by sliding the door.
6. Engage the studs in the rails, on the floor and then on the ceiling, and secure them to the crimping pliers. Insert and secure both brackets to the top profile to accommodate the vertical post. Screw the two brackets to the upper profile via the fixing points provided for this purpose.
7. After checking the horizontality of the profile in relation to the stud, screw them together with four TRPF screws.
8. Cut a rail of the length indicated in the instructions (depending on the width of the door chosen). Cut the fins of the rail 20 cm from each end.
9. Fold the ends 90°.
10. Integrate the cross member above the Navibloc® door block between the two posts.
11. Secure the crosshead to the studs with two TRPF screws on each side. Attach the top profile to the crossbar with the four 4.2 x 32 mm screws provided in the kit.
12. Cut out two pieces of jamb the size of the space between the support beam and the ceiling, minus 1 cm. Attach the back-to-back studs together with TRPF screws. Attach the Double Post to the ceiling rail and transom with eight TRPF screws.
13. Insert the closing stop of the door in the groove provided for this purpose. Close the door taking care that it does not stop against the frame. Adjust the door height.
14. Tighten the height adjustment locking nut. Open the door slightly to access the stop adjustment without moving it. Lock the stopper with an Allen key # 3. The opening stop is preset at the factory. However, it is possible to change this setting with an Allen key # 3.
15. Install the handle.
Dressing the partition
16. Cut Placo® BA 13 plasterboard to place the plate connector at the double stud location.
17. Slide the drywall to the bottom of the Navibloc® rabbet. Fix and join the plates in a traditional way.
