In this video we are going to teach you how to measure and install a SecureView security screen to a Comalco O X sliding door with Custom Tracks.

step 1 – check the accessories

Before starting with the measurements, check the accessories you will need for this installation. For this one, we need a Comalco Receiver Channel, a Top Track, a Flat Interlock, a F-Interlock and a Bug Strip.


step 2 – measure the width

We start by measuring the width from the inside the jamb channel to the back edge of the centre mullion. This measurement is 1365mm.

step 3 – Find Comalco Receiver Channel size

A clever person designed the Comalco receiver channel so that when combined with a standard flat interlock no deductions or additions are needed.

TIP: A flat interlock adds 15mm while this receiver deducts 15mm resulting in the measured size being the manufactured size.
