Description

Details

The Garadry commercial threshold kit has been designed to form a watertight seal between the commercial shutter or garage door and the floor and will seal gaps up to 1/2". The threshold will also prevent leaves, dust and debris from being blown under the shutter/garage door, thus ensuring a clean and dry environment. The product is made from a highly durable aluminum extrusion made to withstand heavy traffic.

The kit itself is made up sections of aluminum which are joined together with a flat bar insert to maintain rigidity. The thermoplastic bottom insert seals are supplied in a continuous length, giving a complete seal along the full overall length of the threshold.

For floors with a slightly uneven surface, clear adhesive/sealant is available to apply to the internal and external bottom seals to help ensure a good adhesion to the floor. This sealant can also be used to seal around the edges of the threshold and frame. Sealant can be ordered at the same time as your threshold using the option above.

The kit includes:

  • Aluminum sections
  • Bottom insert seals
  • Concrete fixings 0.23"x2.3" (4 No. per 39" section)
  • 1 x T30 screwdriver bit (for use with an electric screwdriver)
  • Flat bar insert(s)
  • Grub screws
  • Allen key
  • Fitting instructions

Fitting Instructions

Choosing an installation position

Positions

Position A - The Threshold Seal may be fitted to the floor directly beneath the door so that the door closes on the top of the Threshold Seal.

Position B- The Threshold Seal may be fitted to the floor immediately behind the door. If alarm system contacts are in place, consider these when deciding placement.

PLEASE NOTE - Up and over domestic garage doors should fit the Threshold Seal behind the door (Position B)

Please be aware at this stage of any alarm contacts that may be present on the shutter. The threshold can be cut or notched to fit around alarm contacts if needed. The threshold can also be cut in different shapes to fit the door frame in a variety of manners.  See pictures (C), (D), (E) & (F) for examples.

Step 1

Fitting Step One
Measure the width of the opening.

Step 2

Fitting Step Two

Insert the joining bar into the end of one length of the threshold and lock firmly in place with a grub screw.

Step 3

Fitting Step Three

Slide another section of threshold over the joining bar making sure that there is no gap between the lengths. Tighten in place with a grub screw. Repeat for all remaining lengths. Leave the last length unattached at this stage.

Step 4 

Fitting Step four

Carefully mark the area on the last length to be cut to fit around your door frame. Wearing safety gloves and goggles, cut to length/shape using a hacksaw or an electric saw.

Step 5 

Fitting Step Five

Attach the final length and lay the entire threshold across the entrance to ensure a good fit.

 

Step 6

Fitting Step six

Slide the continuous bottom seals into the underside of the threshold on either side.

Step 7

Fitting Step seven

Lay the threshold back across the opening and using a marker pen, mark where to drill the holes.

 Step 8

Fitting Step eight

Remove the threshold, then using a 6mm (1/4") drill bit, drill the holes for the screws. When finished be sure to clean the entrance to remove debris. Optional—fill any troughs/cracks or undulations in the floor with clear sealant to ensure a watertight seal.

Step 9

Fitting Step nine

Replace the threshold, place the screws in their respective holes and hand tighten slightly. Ensure that all the screws fit snugly.

Step 10

Fitting Step ten

Apply pressure to the threshold with your foot. Then, using an electric screwdriver, tighten the screws into place making sure they are flush but not overtightened.

Step 11

Fitting Step eleven

Wipe the surface of the threshold to remove any grease or dirt. Then starting from one side, apply the hazard tape.

Optional Step

Optional fitting step

Apply clear sealant around the frame to form an additional watertight seal.

Test the threshold:

If water enters under the threshold, lift the threshold and apply a layer of clear sealant along the bottom inserts and in a zig-zag line under the threshold, then refit.

FAQ

WHAT ARE THE DIMENSIONS OF THE THRESHOLD?

The threshold is made up of joinable sections of the aluminum profile. The dimensions are 1/2" high by 3 1/3" depth.

15mm commercial threshold technical drawing

IN WHICH POSITION SHOULD THE THRESHOLD BE FITTED?

The aluminum threshold may be fitted in one of two ways.

Position (A) - Directly beneath the door so that the door closes on the top of the threshold.
Position (B) - Immediately behind the door (if a side ground alarm system is in place).
 
We recommend fitting the threshold in Position (B) for use with up and over domestic garage doors.

Threshold fitting positions

The aluminum may be cut, as (C), (D), (E), and (F) above to allow for alarm sensors or channels on a commercial roller shutter, and other obstructions.

IS THE THRESHOLD EASY TO FIT?

Yes. The threshold should take no longer than 30 minutes to fit. It requires only one adult for fitting and comes with easy-to-follow written fitting instructions. A video showing step-by-step fitting instructions is also available online. Click the fitting instructions tab to watch the video now.

HOW SHOULD I FIT THE THRESHOLD IF MY GARAGE FLOOR IS UNEVEN?

Most garage floors are uneven but if you have a very uneven garage floor you may apply sealant to any hollow areas so that the threshold is fitted on an even surface.  Please contact us for more information/guidance about fitting a threshold on an uneven surface and we will be happy to help.

HOW LONG AFTER FITTING MAY I STEP ON/DRIVE OVER THE THRESHOLD?

Immediately. Unless you have a particularly uneven floor and have had to bed the threshold on a layer of sealant. In this instance it is recommended that you allow a minimum of 24 hours before stepping on/driving over the threshold to ensure maximum bonding to the floor.

HOW DURABLE IS THE THRESHOLD?

We have designed the threshold to be extremely durable.  It is both robust and durable.  We also provide a five-year guarantee with the threshold for your peace of mind (T&C's apply).

HOW SAFE IS THE THRESHOLD?

The threshold has been designed with safety in mind. The threshold is low lying and ideal for pulling over pallet trucks and the grooved "non-slip" surface means it is safe to walk over.

WILL THE THRESHOLD IMPROVE THE OVERALL LOOK OF MY GARAGE/PREMISES?

We think so!  See the before and after images below for yourself.
