adjustment of plastic doors accessories

fittings Adjustment for balcony plastic doors

once adjusted , plastic - balcony - door

balcony doors as well as windows, is responsible for maintaining the heat in the apartment, so if poorly regulated supplies, something that its function will not be executed.Post, most reasonable, it is necessary to determine the cause of the bad functioning of the door leading to the balcony.That's what we'll do:

      • first check the condition of the seal with the door open;
      • study, the places where they are on the sealing material traces of compression, and it will be in the side where the door has shifted;
      • proof that you do not suspect a shrinkage in vain, is the poor performance of the handle.Pay attention to how it works.If it is necessary to turn to put the extra effort and the handle anyway not fully rotated, the tongue can not be matched with the groove, it indicates shrinkage.

Put a door in the normal position

Suppose there is such a phenomenon: a door opening or closing limit catches.There is sagging under the weight of glass.Even if you are involved glazing glass, 4 mm thick, and two-chamber double-glazed window, then this is a decent weight, and if you do not reinsure ordered 4 and 6 mm, and then the door is required to sag.What to do?Of course, the act:

      • door opens;
      • remove the bezel blank, if any;
      • take hex key 4 mm and adjustable upper hinge, tightening the screw;
      • restore the normal vertical position of the door.In this case turn the screw clockwise;
      • close the door.

There is another option:

      • go to the bottom of the loop and frees it from the decorative cap.Upper screw will be available for adjustment;
      • adjustable screw at the upper end of the loop.The movement of the same: on the hour course;
      • perform check door travel.

Note: some types of door hardware, screws, by means of which the adjustment is made have not hexagon and star, and therefore the key need matching.

If near the balcony door is the battery, then under the influence of a constant heat, it can get lateral offset horizontally.The same is observed and at some mechanical deformation of the door.Work in this case have a lateral screw:

  • arming key and tighten the lateral adjustment screw;
  • leaf leaves toward the bottom of the loop;
  • if this action does not give a positive result, then repeat the procedure with the top loop.

On the need to adjust the density of the adjoining door to the frame, is the fact that the draft clearly felt.Actions:

  • have to adjust eccentric pins arranged on the door leaf;
  • using the key to rotate the eccentric until not provide normal clamp.


  • if the pin occupies in relation to the profile of a perpendicular position, the door will fit most;
  • position pins parallel profile - the least fit.


Note: need to adjust the clamp twice: before the onset of cold weather in the spring.And: winter clamp - denser, in the warm - weaker.If you turn the adjusting key-hour course, the clamp will increase, counter-clockwise turn - weakened.If a strong nip seal wear faster.

Repair Pen

This type of hardware for balcony plastic doors, repaired the handle and simply regulated.The worst thing that can happen to her - loosening.

  • screws on the handle is usually covered with decorative caps of plastic.They must be removed;
  • take a screwdriver and tighten the screws, eliminating backlash;
  • if it does not solve the problem, check the handle carefully: perhaps her hull cracked.There was nothing to help, but to buy a new pen.

If really need to replace the handle, then:

  • put pen horizontally;
  • unscrew fasteners;
  • new handle put on the same place.

not hurt to remember : door need to shift to the side opposite from where the flap constantly pushes the sealant.
