Some things you need to know.
Eltrak Sliding Door Products have been designed and engineered to give you years of trouble free operation. However, like all things mechanical they will need a little periodic maintenance and your adherence to a few simple basic rules …
Make sure you choose rollers that are able to easily handle the load that they will be carrying. The item that is most likely to fail is the roller, so money spent in this area when setting up will be a good investment.
Use enough support for the track that is chosen. A wide span between supports will allow the track to deflect or distort. This distortion may end up being permanent, which means the track will need to be replaced and this will most likely damage the rollers too.
DO NOT grease tracks- it can cause wheel slippage and excessive component wear. Lubricants will trap any grit or dirt and you will end up with a very effective grinding paste slowly destroying your track and rollers.
DO NOT weld tracks direct to support beams as it may cause distortion and weakening of the track preventing it from retaining the correct shape for efficient carriage operation and movement, and from bearing the specified door loads.
Please Note: Load designations are not an engineering rated capacity. The loads have been calculated over decades of use in real world applications to provide the performance required for the load specified.
Tracks should always be hung using the correct Eltrak support brackets.
