The kit includes:

  • Garadry flood barrier section(s)
  • Black adhesive cartridge (290ml)
  • Fitting instructions

Fitting Instructions
 
 

Suitable to fit with a manual or automatic up and over, side hinged, roller and sectional garage doors.

Preparation

Surface must be clean and free from dust, oil or grease. Fitting Garadry floor seal on loose concrete or gravel floor is not recommended. Where the surface is painted a wire brush should be used on the area where the floor seal will be fitted.

ALL WORK MUST BE UNDERTAKEN WITH CARE AND PERFORMED BY A MATURE ADULT.

Tools required

Tape measure
Hacksaw or sharp scissors
Pencil
Ruler
Sealant gun

Step 1

Fitting Step One
Open the garage door and measure the overall width of the opening. Allow approximately 40mm (1 1/2 inches) overhang to allow the floor seal to be notched back around the door frame. Then cut the seal length to size.

Step 2

Fitting Step Two
Position the seal so that when the garage door closes the hump is behind the garage door.

Step 3

Fitting Step Three
From inside the garage, with the door closed, push the seal up to the back of the door with the hump touching the door, or as tight as it will go. Mark along the back edge of the floor seal with a pencil or suitable marker.

Step 4

Fitting Step Four
Open the door and mark a line along the front edge of the seal. Remove the seal and mark two parallel lines approximately 0.4" inside the existing lines. Then mark a zigzag line in the middle of them.

Step 5

Fitting Step Five
Using black MS Polymer adhesive apply the adhesive to the floor following the pencil lines created.  Recommended application temperature +5 C to +25 C.

Step 6

Fitting Step Six
Starting from one side, place the seal on the adhesive and press firmly downwards. Continue along the rest of the seal, ensuring good contact at all points.  Remove any excess adhesive from the sides with a cloth.  Allow 24 hours before driving over the threshold seal.

Step 7 (For lengths longer than 19'8")

Fitting Step Seven
Apply a small amount of adhesive onto the spreader (as provided). Apply a thin layer of adhesive across the surface edge of the seal.

Step 8

Fitting Step Eight
Join the sections together, ensuring they fit flush.

Step 9

Fitting Step Nine
Press down firmly on the sections to ensure that the product is completely bonded to the floor. Wipe any excess adhesive from the seal using a clean cloth and a little white spirit (as appropriate).

Technical drawing

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE FLOOD BARRIER/THRESHOLD AND THE OTHER SMALLER THRESHOLDS?

The 40mm high flood barrier is multi-purpose. It has been designed for use in two ways; as a garage threshold; or as a flood barrier. It may be fitted across a garage opening, across a doorway, or across a driveway.

DOES THE RAISED HUMP OF THE FLOOD BARRIER/THRESHOLD 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.

 How it works

HOW SHOULD I FIT THE FLOOD BARRIER/THRESHOLD ACROSS A DRIVEWAY/DOORWAY?

The fitting instructions which are supplied with the flood barrier/threshold apply to fitting the product either as a garage threshold or a flood barrier.  The same technique should be applied in terms of applying the sealant and cutting the flood barrier to size.  Please contact us for more information/guidance about fitting the flood barrier and one of our team will gladly advise you.

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

If you have a very uneven garage floor you may either apply extra sealant to any hollow areas so that the threshold is fitted on an even surface.  Alternatively, please contact us for more information/guidance about fitting a threshold on an uneven surface and one of our team will be happy to help you.

IS THE FLOOD BARRIER/THRESHOLD EASY TO FIT?

Yes.  The threshold should take no longer than 20 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.

IS THE FLOOD BARRIER/THRESHOLD ABLE TO WITHSTAND THE WEIGHT OF A VEHICLE BEING DRIVEN OVER IT?

Yes, the threshold is secured to the floor by a very strong sealant.  The threshold has also been tested rigorously to ensure that it stays in place when being driven over.

How does the garage door threshold perform in different weather conditions?

Our threshold seals can handle extreme temperatures without any issue. 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.

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

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 made from a thermoplastic material which is both robust and durable.  We also provide a five-year guarantee with the threshold for your peace of mind (T&C's apply).
