Low Threshold Doors

The importance of achieving high performance in terms of air and water tightness, dust and insect protection, sound reduction, and other factors in fenestration (windows and doors) systems. It seems that Windowfab is offering solutions, particularly aluminum low threshold options, to address these performance concerns while considering traditional living habits and ergonomics. Here are some key points from your statement:

  • Performance Requirements: Achieving high performance in areas such as air and water tightness, dust and insect protection, and sound reduction is essential for fenestration systems to ensure comfort and energy efficiency in buildings.
  • Full Sash Perimeter Sealing: To meet these performance standards, it's crucial to seal the entire perimeter of the sash (the movable part of a window or door) to prevent air and water infiltration, dust, and insects from entering, as well as to reduce noise transmission.
  • Threshold Considerations: Low threshold or threshold-less arrangements may compromise the performance goals, but they are sometimes preferred for their ergonomic benefits, ease of access, and compatibility with traditional living habits.
  • Aluminum Thresholds: Windowfab is offering aluminum thresholds with a silver anodized finish as a solution. Aluminum is known for its durability and resistance to corrosion, making it a suitable material choice for thresholds.
  • Preparation of Ground Levels: In cases where low thresholds are not possible, Windowfab suggests preparing ground levels to hide the high frame up stand associated with certain types of patio doors (Fold & Slide Patio Doors and Tilt & Slide Patio Doors). This helps maintain a seamless and ergonomic transition between indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • Product Durability: The choice of aluminum thresholds with a silver anodized finish is intended to provide a long-lasting and hardwearing foundation, ensuring the durability of the fenestration products over the years.
