Tube Track System Assembly Instructions

For Tracks Longer than 8 Feet:

Tracks longer than 8 feet will come with two or more track segments that are joined together by one or more splice bars.

Step 3: When installing the tube track, rotate the track so the set screws are facing the wall. For maximum strength, ensure a track support is supporting spliced sections (Figure 3).

Tube Track System Fig 3First Things First

Check to see if the floor below the track area is level. If the floor rises more than 1/2” the door may rub or not slide open completely. If the floor is not level, measure from the highest point of the floor surface to the recommended track placement and adjust track placement accordingly.

Ensure the track will be installed onto wall studs. If wall studs are not lining up with the installation a header will be required to provide the necessary strength and stability for the track and door.

Step 1: To determine where the track should be installed, first measure the height of the door, then add 2-1/4” to the door length. 1/2” will be for the clearance between the bottom edge of the door and the floor. 1-5/8” will be from the top edge of the door to the center of the support. (Figure 1).

Step 4: Predrill with 1/4” bit.

Step 5: Mount back of tube spacer using lag screw (Figure 2).
