Garage Door Mounting Options
Two standard mounting options are available: E-Mount or Z-Mount.
- E-Mounts are typically required when the jambs are capped with steel. With this mounting option the angle faces toward the opening.
- Z-Mounts are used for wood, concrete or masonry block
Aluminum mounting angles may utilize a hollow, double-wall design to completely hide guide fasteners
Steel Support Tubes:
Tubes are mounted into a sleeve cup on the slab and attached to the steel joists at the top. This allows for the grille/closure to be installed first before any walls are built eliminating the difficulty of working around studs, HVAC and plumbing.
Telescoping Aluminum Tubes:
- Support tubes are designed to extend beyond the opening to the deck above. They are simple to attach to the floor and ceiling deck and require no modifications on the job site.
- Maximum extension is 8ft. above opening
