Three styles of threshold are available with Origin’s single and twin French style front doors; weathered, non-weathered and a mobility threshold. The weathered threshold succeeds at establishing a weatherproof barrier against the elements, sealing against an upstand lip of only 10mm.
For most installations, the threshold can be sunk into the ground, reducing any trip hazard and shielding you against the outdoor climate. A non-weathered threshold could be a good solution for an internal secondary door that’s not severe weather rated.
It is possible in most installations to sink this threshold into the ground, minimising trip hazards while also ensuring halls are not cold and draughty. For an internal secondary front door that’s not severe weather rated, a non-weathered threshold could be a good option. The not severe weather rated Origin mobility threshold is just 20mm high, ideal if you need simple wheelchair access or use a walking aid.
