LEVELTRAC was created to improve the performance of large sliding and folding door systems. It provides a completely level mounting surface for any size door opening. It also offers the ability to change the elevation of the door threshold to meet the finished floor. The results are less trip hazards and better aesthetic flow. Our system eliminates the need to shim under door tracks. Shimming results in a door threshold which is only partially supported. With LEVELTRAC, installations become much more accurate which improves overall door performance. The LEVELTRAC system, once applied, provides a laser level surface and lets the doors function as they were designed. PATENT PENDING
Determine the size of the door system you will be installing. During the concrete pour, create a "knock out" or "drop" in the cement in the door location. It can be from 1 1/2 inches or more if needed. The LEVELTRACS come in several widths to accommodate most openings. Custom sizes can be made for oversized units.
Assemble the track with provided parts. Place the system into the cement drop. Use the leveling screws along with a tape and laser to level the track. Set at the desired elevation taking into account your finished floor height and the door threshold height. Once level, use the provided Tapcon screws to secure into the cement below.
Use high strength cement and a bonding agent designed for shallow areas. Fill the area inside the LEVELTRAC and float across the entire track using each side as a screed for the trowel. Once smoothed out and cured, you have a perfectly level surface set at the exact height you desire to match your finished floor. Add our matching "WATERPROOF DOOR PAN" and create the ideal situation for mounting a large door system.
Installation and informational video coming soon!
Decide the door size and install a knock out into the poured foundation in the location of the door threshold.
Clean location and insert the LEVELTRAC shim system into opening.
Determine your finished floor height and adjust and level to the appropriate elevation.
Use a tape and laser to get the LEVELTRAC exactly level. Tapcon trac into existing cement once level and in place.
Pour appropriate cement product into trac location. Trowel across both ridges on LEVELTRAC to produce a perfectly level cement surface.
