RP60 Installation Instructions

The RP60 is an automatic door bottom seal which lifts to clear carpet as the door opens and seals tight when the door closes. 

The RP60 is suitable for installation on single or double, inward opening doors.

  1. Measure the front of the door between the door stops. Refer to Fig. A.
    Figure A
  2. Cut the RP60 on the latch side squarely to the measurement using a hacksaw minus 2mm to allow for clearance. If the door is less than 750mm wide, trim equal amounts from each end of the RP60 to avoid damaging the mechanism. RP60 can be cut down to a minimum of 450mm. Remove burrs and rough edges with a file.
  3. Fit adjusting screw (the longest screw) by fully inserting in the hinge side end. Refer to Fig. 1.
    Figure 1
  4. With the door closed, position the RP60 level with the door bottom and hard against the hinge stop. Fix with the screws provided. Refer to Fig. 2.
    Figure 2Figure 1
  5. Open the door and withdraw adjusting screw two turns. Refer to Fig. 3. Fit thumb tack strike if necessary. Refer to Fig. 1.
    Figure 3
  6. Close the door gently and observe the action of the RP60. The seal should engage the sill slightly. For further adjustment, turn the adjusting screw half a turn at a time.
  7. Fit the cover strip. Refer to Fig. 2.
