Threshold Plates

Threshold Plates are aluminium or brass extrusions, that are fitted to the sill under doors, they provide a clean delineation between adjacent floor surfaces. A weather barrier in themselves, threshold plates provide an optimum sealing surface for door bottom seals. Being hard wearing, thresholds offer an elevated sealing plane which, in the case of sweep seals, prevent contact or excessive resistance over carpeted, uneven or sloping floors.

Raven Threshold Plates have been designed to withstand the day to day rigours of heavy pedestrian and wheeled traffic encountered in commercial buildings. Their low profiles do not impede wheeled traffic nor do they present any tripping hazard to pedestrian traffic.

Where disabled access is a requirement, ensure that the Threshold Plate is suitable for wheeled access and that it conforms to the relevant building code or standard. In Australia BCA sections DP1.10, DP2.10, DP2.15, D3, D3.2, G4.3, G4.5 AS1428 and AS1735. In the UK, refer to building regulations part M.

Most of Raven’s Threshold Plates conform to American National Standard ANSI A117.1 - 1992 ‘Thresholds at Doorways’ eg (RP13, 19, 28, 29, 66, 77, 82, 95, 96, 98, 112).
