Products will be produced utilizing market finest practices and methods for all hardware, spaces and
spacing deductions, horizontal and vertical protecting, etc
. The base and walls for any RODA system( s) must be constructed with correct wood blocking prior to installation to make sure the weight of the enclosure is correctly supported as it might lead to product failure. At minimum, 2 x 4 stopping is needed at the location of any structural member of the unit consisting of, however not restricted to: hinges, clamps, and header brackets. All fasteners at these locations are required to be set up into the stopping. Basco is not liable for cracks on the fiberglass or acrylic modules or item failure of any kind that arises from insufficient blocking.
Depending of the panel size and or door hinge layout, a support bar or header might be needed for correct stability.
Floor to Ceiling panel( s) will be manufactured to be lift and drop when using U-Channel as the horizontal protecting approach unless kept in mind otherwise.
Security tempered glass can not be cut and is resistant to breakage, but it is susceptible to breakage if incorrectly dealt with through unequal pressure or if an unguarded edge comes in contact with any solid surface. Basco is not liable for breakage after installation is completed.
Curb Width Requirements for Rolling RODA Shower Doors
Understanding your curb width versus your flat width is essential when installing sliding shower doors. Normally, 3 inches is the smallest width a curb can be. However, with cautious measurement the doors can be installed on a smaller flat width. Please understand whether the moving shower door can fit is up to the discretion of the installer.
Installation Standards for Frameless Glass Doors

Example of appropriate thread engagement
Our intent at Basco is to ensure that our consumers have access to items based upon a variety of styles and preferences. Please describe these guidelines for setting up heavy (3/8-inch) glass doors on fiberglass and acrylic substrates. The base and walls for any RODA unit( s) must be built with the proper wood obstructing prior to installation to guarantee the weight of the enclosure is appropriately supported.
When the U-Channel or glass clamp is screwed into the threshold, the weight of the glass sits on top of the screws, necessitating the structural assistance.
Without correct structural assistance, when the panel or door is moved this might trigger the screws to move somewhat. In time, this slight motion increases the size of the hole the screw is in and eventually fractures (spider webs) the gelcoat or acrylic and starts to break down the fiberglass support.
Acrylic or fiberglass walls have blocking set up by the producer. However, the area of that support may not match the location of where holes require to be drilled for vertical u-channel, wall mount hinges, and headers.
Without correct support behind the walls the door or panel(s) will eventually slip out of the thin walls.
All structural elements of RODA doors need to follow these guidelines. These components consist of but are not limited to: hinges, headers, and clamps.
Basco needs a minimum of 1-1/4" thread engagement of all fasteners into the obstructing at any load bearing location. Depending upon the application the customer maybe needed to provide the proper fasteners to make sure sufficient engagement.
U-Channel may be secured into locations without blocking, leaving out fiberglass and acrylic modules and/or bases, when wall plugs are utilized. Fiberglass and/or acrylic modules need appropriate obstructing in all locations, consisting of a u-channel.
Metal studs or strapping are not acceptable substitutes for securing load-bearing hardware.
Constantly refer to regional building code. Regional building regulations may supersede Basco's requirements. Basco's requirements are to be considered as minimum requirements.
