How to deploy a WaterDoor steps:
Step 1When the barrier is not deployed, the opening remains unobstructed allowing full access to the property. When the threat of flooding becomes apparent, the deployment process can commence.
Step 2First remove the compression blocks at the top of the rails and unscrew the horizontal fixings, which are positioned down the length of the fixed wall rails. This is to ensure they do not obstruct the deployment of the panels.
Step 3Prior to slotting in the first Aluminium Panel, please ensure that the floor surface and its immediate surroundings are free from any debris. Once this is done, you can start inserting the panels.
Step 4Carefully insert each panel, ensuring that you start with the rubber sealing bottom panel first. These panels have seals on both top and bottom and are labeled BOTTOM PANEL.
Step 5Continue the panel deployment process with the insertion of the intermediary panels (these panels have top seals on only) and are labelled MIDDLE PANEL. Finally add the top panel which has no seal and is labelled TOP PANEL.
Step 6Insert compression block into fixed wall post and finger tighten. Finger tighten the horizontal compression screws by hand, so that panels begin to depress against the rubber seal on the inside of the channels, then finger tighten the vertical compression screws on the top compression blocks by hand, which will depress the rubber seal on the bottom aluminium panel to the floor.
Step 7Now equally tighten compression blocks in fixed wall posts.
Step 8The horizontal screws can now be tightened. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.
