1700RD Ordering Instructions

1700RD Multi-Fold Hardware are configured according to application, in effect you build the 1700RD to suit your particular installation requirements. Follow the steps below to build your 1700RD hardware set.


Step 1. Order Track to Desired Length

In standard applications track is usually ordered in lengths that at least equal the overall opening width. Johnson Hardware recommends that single track lengths be used whenever possible to avoid door hangers passing over track splices during operation. Track splicing is acceptable only if hanger wheels DO NOT pass over the splice. If multiple track lengths are to be used in a single opening, ensure that track and door panels are positioned so that no door hanger/guide passed over track splice.

Step 2. Order Base Set A

Base Hardware Set A contains all the pivots, brackets, hangers and mounting screws to hang the 1st pair of panels from a single jamb. Order base hardware set A (1715BS-A) for the first pair of panels off jamb as indicated. Order 1 base set A when all panels operate from a single direction. Order 2 base sets A's when panels will operate from two directions, converging panels that meet in the middle of the opening.

Step 3. Order Add-On Set B

Order one add-on hardware set B (1725AOSB) for every pair of panels after Base Set A as indicated.
