HOW DO I KNOW WHAT HEIGHT I NEED?
That’s easy, to determine the height most suitable for your garage simply measure the gap between the bottom of your door and the ground with the door closed. Be sure to measure in 3 or 4 points along the door to ensure you’re accommodating any differing heights. We then recommend purchasing the seal slightly higher than the biggest gap. If there is no visible gap and a small amount of water ingress, the ½” or ¾” seal should suffice.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE GARADAM AND THE OTHER SMALLER THRESHOLDS?
The 2” high GARADAM is the highest seal available from Garadry. Designed for maximum protection and peace of mind against storms, debris, rodents and leaves. Keeping your garage dry and clean whatever the weather.
DOES THE RAISED HUMP OF THE GARADAM FIT IN FRONT OR BEHIND THE GARAGE DOOR?
The raised hump on the top of the threshold fits behind the garage door to ensure that a tight seal is formed when the garage door is in the closed position. If installing further back behind the tracks rather than ‘notching’ around the tracks, it is recommended GARADAM Side Caps are used to prevent water pooling and spilling over the sides (see below)
IS THE GARADAM THRESHOLD EASY TO FIT?
Yes. The Garadam shouldn’t take too long to install and comes with easy-to-follow fitting instructions. We recommend asking someone to help when installing the GARADAM due to the weight, it is 2 person lift.
IS THE GARADAM ABLE TO WITHSTAND THE WEIGHT OF A VEHICLE BEING DRIVEN OVER IT?
Yes, the threshold is secured to the floor by an extremely strong adhesive. Please see our weight guidelines for more information about a suitable seal for your vehicle and be sure to allow 24hrs from installation before driving over your new GARADAM seal.
HOW DOES THE GARADAM PERFORM IN DIFFERENT WEATHER CONDITIONS?
Our threshold seals can handle extreme temperatures without any changes in performance. Our specialist sealant/adhesive does become slightly harder to apply in lower temperatures but once installed it will work just fine. If you can, install the threshold above freezing to ensure you get the best seal.
