1, Determine the size and weight of the sliding doors: The door size and weight will affect the type of automatic sliding door system you need.
2, Choose a electric sliding door mechanism: There are several types of automatic sliding door systems, including belt-driven, chain-driven, and gear-driven. Select a system that is suitable for your door's weight, size, and usage.
3, Prepare the opening: The opening where the door will be installed must be clean and level. If necessary, you may need to install a header or reinforce the walls to support the door system's weight.
