HOW IS THE THRESHOLD SEAL FITTED?
Sep 26, 2018

The threshold fits behind the garage door to ensure that a tight seal is formed when the garage door is in the closed position. The seal should not be fitted in front of the door, as this will not prevent water from running down the face of the door and entering in between the seal and the door.


Our garage door thresholds were designed with you in mind. Anyone with basic DIY skills will be able to fit our range of seals. The seals come in a variety of lengths and heights and are made with either aluminum or flexible vinyl material. The flexible vinyl is a rubber-like material, similar in composition to many inferior rubber door seals you can find on the market, with the advantages of being longer lasting, harder wearing and not deteriorating with prolonged contact with water.


The threshold should be notched in place around the frame or door channels. This will depend on the style of door and the installation.
