Step 1 - Side Wall Frame Assembly - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will take you through the first step to assembling your Smartlocker- The side wall frame
As the first step, you’ll have to assemble the side walls.
Look for Channels A, B, G and a couple of F Channels to start with.
Slide these channels together referring to your assembly manual for orientation of the channels.
The middle F Channel goes in last, while measuring the distance to ensure it matches your assembly manual.
Measure all dimensions, including diagonally to make sure the dimensions match up with your assembly instructions.
You must do measurements properly to ensure the frame is square. An Out of square frame can cause trouble later, when fixing the cladding.
First screw with one tek screw to fix the frame and cross check all the dimensions are corresponding with the numbers in your assembly manual.
Once you are sure your frame is square, fix all corners with the second teks screws.
The next step will be adding the bracing.
Once you fix the bracing at one corner pull the brace firmly to the diagonal corner and screw it. Do not over tighten it, so that the frame becomes out of square. After fixing the Brace at the top corner check the diagonals to make sure frame is still square as per the measurement in your assembly manual.
This completes your first side frame. Please repeat the process to complete the second side frame.
Step 2 - Rear Wall Frame Assembly - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will take you through step 2 in assembling your Smartlocker- The rear wall frame
Once you have the two side frames assembled, you are ready to move onto the rear wall frame assembly.
Start the process by identifying 3 C Channels and bend one tab out 90 degrees on each of them.
Then fix the bottom C Channel to the side wall frames before you move onto fixing the top C Channels.
Next step is to identify 2 D channels, your middle uprights.
Measure the distance from the side referring to your assembly instructions and fix the upright channels to the bottom and top C Channels of your rear frame.
Then bend the upright tab inwards for a nice finish.
Next step is to add the rear wall bracing…
Similar process you did on the side wall frames. Secure the bracing to one corner and then pull the brace firmly to the diagonal corner and screw it.
Remember not to overtighten it, so that the frame stays square.
After fixing the Brace at the top corner check the diagonals to make sure frame is still square.
Then repeat the same process for the other rear wall bracing and your rear wall frame is done.
Step 3 - Front Wall Frame Assembly - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will take you through the last step in building your portal frame of your Smartlocker- The front wall frame
As a last step for completing your frame, you need to complete your front frame.
First step is to look for Channel H which you have two of. They could be joined together and might need to be separated.
Bend one end inward and one outward as you can see it here. Then fix the channels to the frame with the supplied tek screws. Repeat the process on the other side of the frame.
Next step is to look for your two 105-Door Jambs and the 4 x 55mm brackets. Fix the brackets to the top end of the door jambs.
Make sure the bracket flushes with the open face of the channel.
Then put the first door jamb into position as you can see here. Fix the bottom to the H channel, front brace, while measuring the distance to make sure it matches your assembly manual.
Then secure the top of your door jamb, measure the distance here as well making sure it matches up with your manual.
Repeat the process with the other door jamb, on the other side of your front frame.
Next step is to identify the E Channel, the front door horizontal channel and bend both tabs outwards at both ends.
Then measure the distance as per your assembly manual for the position of your E Channel and then use the supplied tek screws to secure the channel to the door jambs.
Repeat the process at the other end and measure once more to ensure you have the distance right.
Your frame is ready, congratulations.
Fix the supplied corner brackets to the 4 corners of your frame at this point.
Undo the the bottom tek screw holding channels C and F together and secure the inner corner of the corner bracket as you are driving the screw back.
Then add the remaining 5 tek screws and then repeat the process for the remaining 3 corners.
Final step is to secure your 75mm brackets to the bottom of the door jamb and then you are ready for cladding.
Step 4 - Rear Wall Cladding - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will show you how to add the rear wall cladding to your Smartlocker frame.
Identify your 3 Rear Wall panels, marked with J, and place the first one to the rear wall with the colour facing out. Keep a 5mm distance from the edge of the channels.
Here, we’re building this shed on the top of the floor, so we’re fixing the sheets flash with the bottom of the shed.
If you are building your shed on the edge of your foundation slab, you can overhang the bottom sheet by 15mm.
Fix the sheet with coloured tek screws at every alternative corrugation, do this until you have 4 screws in, then repeat the process on the other end.
Grab your second sheet and place it on while making sure it overlaps 2 corrugations.
Use supplied coloured tek screws to fix on each overlapping corrugation and then on every alternative corrugation after the overlap.
Grab your third sheet and place it on, however this time make sure to overlap only one corrugation. Use supplied colour tek screws to fix the overlapping corrugation and then every alternative corrugation.
Fix the top corrugation in the middle by looking from above where the middle channel is, then hook your Chalk line where the screw is and mark the vertical line along the middle channel with the Chalk line.
Then fix the sheets along the mark to the middle channel at every second corrugation.
This completes the cladding of the rear wall, we’re ready to move onto the side wall.
Step 5 - Side Wall Cladding - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will show you how to add the side wall cladding to your Smartlocker frame.
Identify your 6 Side Wall panels, marked with M and place the first one to the side wall colour facing out. Keep a 5mm distance from the edge of the channels.
The process from here is very similar to the back wall cladding. Fix the sheet with coloured tek screws at every alternative corrugation until you have 4 screws in, then repeat the process on the other end.
The second sheet overlaps 2 corrugations and remember to fix each overlapping corrugation, then follow the same process you did with the rear wall.
Take note that the top sheet overlaps the second sheet one corrugation.
After completing the cladding on one side of the building, move on to repeat the same process on the other side of the building.
Step 6 - Front Wall Cladding - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will show you how to add the front wall cladding to your Smartlocker frame.
Identify your 6 Front Wall panels, marked with “I” and place the first one to the front wall colour facing out. Keep a 5mm distance from the edge of the channels.
Please refer to your assembly manual to mark the distances on your door jamb, so you are sure to position the front sheets at the right place.
Then follow the same process as the rear and the side walls and fix the sheet with 4 coloured tek screws on each side.
Then add the second sheet by overlapping 2 corrugations of the first one, Now fix both overlapping corrugations with a coloured tek screw and then every second corrugation.
Then add the top sheet with one corrugation overlapping the second one, just as you have done on the rear and side walls.
When you get to the top sheet, leave out the top 3 screws on the inside, for now, as Sheet “K” will need to slide under the top “I” channels on both sides.
After one side of the front wall is completed, repeat the process on the other side.
Now grab Sheet “K” and slide it under sheets “I”, on both sides.
Position it, so it is about the same distance or just a little over the top of the “I” sheets on the sides of the front frame.
Then use coloured tek screws to fix the sheet to the channel.
Step 7 - Guttering and Roof Sheet Fixing - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will show you how to attached the guttering system and roof sheets to your Smartlocker
If you don’t have a gutter for your Smartlocker, you will have to fix the front top flashing labeled “1” instead of the gutter support bracket at the same place to cover the front top of the shed.
If you are adding a gutter to your shed you will need to do the following:
Place the 4 gutter support brackets on the top front channel.
Use a single tek screw for each bracket to fix to the channel.
Use a block of timber with a slot cut in it to bend the alternative lower corrugation up on each roof sheet before you fix them to your shed.
Put your roof sheets in place while tracking the roof sheets to the rear channel “C” of your building.
Use the supplied Roofing Hex Tek screws to secure your roof sheets.
Start at the back fixing the sheets at every alternate corrugation making sure to always fix overlapping corrugations.
After you finished the back, proceed to fixing the front.
You may use a Chalk line to mark the location of the channel.
Make sure you clean your roof any f swarf to avoid swarf staining.
Next step is to add the rear top corner flashing. You’ll need a 50x50 flashing.
Place it along the front roof line and drill through the flashing AND the roof sheet at every few corrugations, and then use pop rivets to fix the flashing.
Then fix all corner flashings to the building the same way. Please refer to your assembly instructions for the lengths as some of your corner flashings will need to be cut to size.
After you finished with all the 50x50 flashings around the corners, cut 35mm out of the 50x50 flashings, these will be fixed to the door jambs, When ready you can fix them with tek screws.
Next step is to cut the 35x35 flashing to size, then cut out 50mm on each side as you can see here.
Then fix both ends of the flashing. And then a couple of screws at the bottom of the flashing.
Next step is running a stringline across the support brackets and then drill the holes for securing the gutter brackets.
Once you added your gutter brackets use your downpipe drop to mark the hole to be cut.
Once you have the opening, fix the downpipe drop with pop rivets and silicone.
Next step is to fix the gutter cups using pop rivets and silicone if needed.
Once you have both gutter cups on, you are ready to fit the gutter to your shed.
Measure the required length for your downpipe and cut it to length
Next is fitting the corner flashing on both sides, now that your gutter is on.
You now have completed your roof and guttering and can move onto the final step of your shed. he roller door
Step 8 - Mounting the Roller Door - Smartlocker Assembly Video
Hi in this video we will show you how mount the roller door to your Smartlocker Garden Shed
Please make sure your shed is bolted down before you begin mounting the roller door. Pre-drill the holes with an 8mm masonry bit and use the supplied dyna-bolts to ensure every corner of your shed secured to your slab.
Start the process by measuring out the position for the first bracket by referring to your assembly instructions for measurements.
Once you know where the bracket needs to go, secure it to the door jamb with supplied tek screws.
Repeat the process on the other side.
Once your brackets are secured at all corners, it is time to place the roller door in its position.
Mark both sides with a marker as you can see here, so that you know where the edge of the door is, as you’re fitting it.
Lift the roller door on the brackets the right way round, so that the door will roll down from the front of the opening.
As soon as you have the roller door on the brackets, immediately loosely fit the “U” bolts.
This way you eliminate the door falling off the brackets.
Centre the door with the opening, while ensuring the floating axle is also centered with the door.
Then tighten all 4 screws to secure the door in position. Do not cut the plastic wrap or packaging yet.
Next step is to tension the springs.
First grab a soft wood chock, approximately 400mm or so long one side is cut to angle as you can see here.
Rotate the door one and a half turns in a forward direction to apply tension. Do not let go as the springs are now tensioned.
Hold the door firmly and take the packaging off carefully taking care not to damage the paint on the door.
Pull the door enough to be able to fit the wooden chock as you can see it here.
The chock will help hold the door until the guides and stops are fitted.
Make sure that the curtain overlaps equally on both sides.
Then grab your Roller door tracks (marked with “Q”) and cut them to the appropriate length.
Then secure them to the door jamb on both sides.
At this time you are ready to remove the chock and lower the door, removing the plastic wrapping.
Next step is to grab your centre lift lock.
Fit the faceplate to outside of the door as you can see here, then attach the lock body to the faceplate from the inside. Do not over tighten these screws.
With the door in the closed position, slide the end of the locking bar through the locking bar retainers and while holding the bars level, mark the side of the guides.
