Notice for doors supplied with Butt Hinges

Our composite doors supplied with butt hinges are fixed to the door frame with two screws per hinge for transportation purposes only.

There are two more screws per hinge supplied with the door.

To make the installation easier we recommend the door leaf is removed from its frame before fixing. Ensure the door frame is square
within the aperture before securing to the brickwork. Then re-attach the door leaf to the fixed frame whilst making sure you have an equal
gap around the door leaf.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT ALL SUPPLIED HINGE SCREWS ARE USED.
