INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS - MODELS 3300-3700-3900

1. PREPARE A ROUGH OPENING IN THE WALL SQUARE AND LEVEL, WITH VERTICAL CLEARANCE 1/2" TALLER THAN THE HEIGHT OF THE     GROUP AND HORIZONTAL CLEARANCE 1/2" WIDER THAN THE WIDTH OF THE GROUP. OPENING DEPTH IS 15". BOTTOM ROW OF BOXES     MUST BE INSTALLED NO LESS THAN 18" FROM FINISHED FLOOR AND TOP ROW NO MORE THAN 66" FROM FINISHED FLOOR.

2. BUILD A SUPPORT STRUCTURE ON THE BOTTOM AND TOP OF THE OPENING USING 2" X 4"S. FIX 3/4" PLYWOOD ON THE SUPPORT     STRUCTURE MAKING A LINING ALONG TOP, BOTTOM AND SIDES OF THE INTERIOR OF THE OPENING. THE SUPPORT STRUCTURE     COMPLETED IN STEP ONE MUST BE STRONG ENOUGH TO ENSURE THAT THERE IS NO SAG IN THE PLYWOOD, PARTICULARLY THE     BOTTOM SIDE. OTHERWISE IT WILL BE VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE TO INSTALL THE MODULES SQUARE.

3. THIS STEP WILL SIMPLIFY ANY INSTALLATION, PARTICULARLY WHEN THERE ARE NUMEROUS MODULES. TO LEVEL THE WALL OPENING     HORIZONTALLY, ATTACH 2 1" X 3" WOOD WEDGES TO THE BOTTOM PIECE OF PLYWOOD BEGINNING AT 7/8" FROM THE WALL OPENING,     SPACING THE 1" X 3" `S AT 8-3/8" CENTER TO CENTER.

4. USE THE WOOD WEDGES TO SHIM THE 1" X 3" `S LEVEL. ATTACH THE 1" X 3" `S TO THE PLYWOOD USING WOOD SCREWS. ENSURE THAT     THE SCREWS ARE COUNTERSUNK.

5. PLACE THE MAILBOX MODULES IN THE PREPARED OPENING ONE AT A TIME. DO NOT FASTEN YET. MODULES OF BOXES ARE TO BE     INSTALLED IN HORIZONTAL ROWS AND/OR VERTICAL STACKS AS REQUIRED TO FORM A LARGER CUSTOM-SIZED GROUP.

6. GROUPS OF BOXES ARE TO BE INSTALLED STRAIGHT, SQUARE, LEVEL AND PLUMB. IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT THE MODULES BE PERFECTLY     SQUARE WHEN INSTALLED FOR A PROPER FUNCTIONING OF THE DOORS AND CORRECT ALIGNMENT WITH FRAME AND STRUCTURE OF     THE OPENING. IT IS STRONGLY RECOMMENDED TO OBTAIN PERFECT ALIGNMENT OF THE MODULES OF EACH ROW OR COLUMN AND     THEN ROW WITH ROW AND COLUMN WITH COLUMN. MODULES ARE SCREWED TOGETHER WITH NUTS AND BOLTS SUPPLIED BY RIOPEL     AND USING A SMALL SQUARE TIP SCREW DRIVER.

7. MAKE SURE THAT THE CABINET FRAME IS FLUSH WITH THE EDGE OF THE WALL OPENING. IF YOUR INSTALLATION REQUIRES A RIOPEL     TRIM, THEN HAVE THE FRAME SQUARE WITH THE EDGE OF THE FINISHED WALL OPENING SO THAT WHEN THE TRIM IS ATTACHED IT CAN BE MADE TO CONCEAL THE ENTIRE OUTER EDGE OF THE CABINET FRAME.

8. FASTEN UNITS (ROW, COLUMN OR GROUP), TO THE SUPPORT STRUCTURE WITH 2-1/2" SCREWS TOP AND BOTTOM. EACH MODULE MUST     BE FASTENED AT FOUR LOCATIONS, ONE PER CORNER WITH APPROPRIATE FASTENERS FOR THE ROUGH FRAMING MATERIALS.

9. IF USING RIOPEL TRIM FASTEN CLIPS TO WALL AND SNAP ON TRIM. OTHERWISE SCREW TO WALL WITH ONE-WAY SECURITY SCREWS     PROVIDED.

10. IF INSTALLING ASSEMBLED MODELS THEN USE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR MODELS 4000 - 6000
