Other Frequently Asked Questions


Q. When measuring for a new door from scratch (not replacing existing door), do I just supply you with opening size and you will make the door with appropriate deductions?
A. We will make the door based on the standard allowances. Some doors may have individual quirks. If you are not sure, you can check our detail guide here, or at the measurement tab.

For your reference, with sliding flyscreens, we normally install two bottom wheels only and the deduction is 8mm. If you choose to install top wheels as addon, the deduction is 12mm.

Once you enter the opening measurements into the text field, website will calculate the door size accordingly.


Q. What are interlocks?
A. The purpose of interlocks is to lock the back of the sliding door into the fixed panel simultaneously as the door is closed into the locking position, this ensures that the door is locked on both sides. A frame interlock is fixed to the back of the sliding door at the point of installation so as to have it interlock with the receiving interlock which is located on the fixed glass panel.

There are two different sized receiving interlocks:

5 mm offset interlock: When measuring for widths with 3 mm offset interlock allow no deductions.

7 mm offset interlock: When measuring for widths with 7 mm offset interlock allow no deductions.


Q. What if my door does not have a receiving interlock.

Substitute the frame interlock for a bug seal this will eliminate insects coming from the through the gap between the door and fixed panel – indicate this change when placing your order, frame interlock is supplied with all Security Sliding Doors.
