Default sectional garage door

Hello everybody.
I ordered and received a 5m wide sectional garage door from China.i
have all the hardware but NO assembly instruction.
The door is made of 4 panels, i have curved rails, strait rails, 2
springs, a lot of hinges, rolls and screws. Does any one have an
assembly manual for such a gate?
Many thanks in advance. Best regards. Rudy in the Philippines.

I don't have a manual but installation is usually done by stacking the
door panel on top of each other (as if the door is closed). Support
them in place with nails or screws on both left and right ends
securely as you go up. Once the door panels are in place, then
assemble the vertical tracks on both sides. Once in place, assemble
the hinges and wheels into the tracks. Now that you are to this
point, the door should be fully self supporting within the tracks.
Next assemble the curved and horizontal tracks and support them. You
are now done except for the spring assembly and it's very very tricky
and dangerous if done wrong. You may want to call a professional to
do the spring part. That is about all I know. Good luk

First, loosely install the rails. The curved ones go where the door
will transition from vertical to horizontal.

Loosely assemble the door panel hardware and rollers.

Install the panels from bottom to top and affix to each other.

Tighten and adjust hardware to fit and operate smoothly.

Install the springs and adjust the tension to where the door will
remain in place wherever you stop lifting it.

If difficulties ensue, cuss the Chinese who made it, or the cheap
******* who bought it, as required.
