Exitex Weatherbar Thresholds

Exitex is a leading developer of weather-proofing products designed for doors, windows, conservatories and joinery applications. All draught and weather seals within their range are manufactured to the highest standards, incorporating many unique patented features. Within our Exitex range, we stock several different weatherbar thresholds each offering their own advantages.

Threshex

The Threshex weatherbar is a popular inward or outward opening threshold (reversible by replacing seal the opposite way round). It only requires an under door clearance of 14-17mm, so is extremely low lying, and meets the requirements of the DDA Part “M” Recommendations. It is suitable for use in areas of moderate weather exposure, is available in multiple finishes and lengths to suit a variety of applications:

Finishes

  • Milled
  • Gold
  • Black
  • Bronze

Sizes

  • 933-2134mm

Kleertred 20

The Kleertred 20 is a 2-piece threshold and weather deflector set. It requires a 20mm under door clearance. The twin weather seal is housed in the weather deflector extrusion and maintains a constant seal underneath the door in the closed position. This provides a hard-wearing sill section, suitable for high traffic and wheelchair access as there are no seals on it to be damaged. This set is designed to perform in areas of moderate exposure. It is available in multiple finishes and lengths to suit a variety of applications:

Finishes

  • Milled
  • Gold
  • Black

Sizes

  • 914-1829mm

Macclex

The Macclex weather bar threshold is designed for inward opening doors and can be used for single or double door applications, due to its compatibility with the standard striker block for use with flush bolts. This weather bar requires a 13mm under door clearance. It incorporates two weather seals, one acting as a compression seal at the front (outside) edge of the door and a wiper seal on the closing (rebate) edge of the sill. The Macclex is suited to areas of moderate exposure and is available in three different models to suit both 44mm and 56mm door thicknesses. The 15/4 model features a thermal break to protect against external elements passing into the property.

This particular model is ideal for exposed locations and features a rear thermal barrier to protect against condensation. The MWK 20 incorporates three weather seals housed in the underside of the deflector. The seal on the outside edge of the door acts as a compression seal, whilst the two inner versions act as wiper seals.

The Disability Discrimination Act (2004) Recommendations/Part “M” Approved

When installing a weatherbar threshold to properties that provide a service to the public e.g. a retail store, it is vital to use one that allows easy access for anyone with a disability. This is a legal requirement that service providers must adhere to.

Under the Disability Discrimination Act (2004), it states:

“Where a physical feature (for example, one arising from the design or construction of a building or the approach or access to premises) makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for disabled persons to make use of such a service, it is the duty of the provider of that service to take the required steps to ensure easy access for all persons.”

Under this Act, “Physical Features” includes building entrances and exits, along with internal and external doors.

All of the Exitex weather bars mentioned above are specifically designed to allow easy access suitable for wheelchairs, which ensures that they comply with the above DDA requirement. They are also Part “M” Approved, meaning they meet the guidelines set out under Approved Document M. This is a collection of legal documentation that is based around the “Access and Use of Buildings.” Under this document, any threshold located in a properties communal entrance must be “easily accessible.”
