Sealmaster SmartSeal


Applications
A very high performance combination seal, with hidden fixings, for inward or outward opening external doors of either single or double leaf design.

Features and Benefits

Sealmaster SmartSealThe low-rise SmartSeal threshold section with Sealmaster's patented valve-controlled drainage ensures ease of access with maximum weather protection. The SmartSeal threshold section is available in two versions: one for timber or vinyl floor finishes (section TB) and the other for carpet finishes incorporating a square edge to butt against the carpet (section TA).

The SmartSeal threshold drainage trough is covered to prevent a tripping hazard. A range of weatherboard and contact strip options is available in a choice of finishes to suit both traditional and contemporary door designs. For outward opening doors the contact strip is fitted to the inside face of the door and is a discrete section, which does not detract from the style of the door.

The threshold, weatherboard and contact strip sections all utilise covers to hide their fixings and ensure clean, crisp, lines. SmartSeal seals can be used with virtually all Sealmaster stop seals.

application guide

Sealmaster SmartSealApplications
A very high performance combination seal, with hidden fixings, for inward or outward opening external doors of either single or double leaf design.

Relationship with other products
To seal the gaps around the door effectively these thresholds should be used in conjunction with one of the Sealmaster range of stop seals such as the surface mounted Sealmaster Blizzard or the recessed Sealmaster Deluge. The gap between the two leaves of double doors should be sealed along the face of the door with an appropriate meeting stile seal such as Sealmaster Tempest.

Sealmaster SmartSealInward opening doors Single inward opening doors
The door stop seal must be fitted down to the sill. The front of the threshold should be cut to fit around the door stop seal and the rear fitted directly between the jambs and tight up against the back of the stops, in line with the front face of the door.
The weatherboard should be screwed to the external face of the door. It is supplied with oversized holes to allow fine adjustment. It should be fitted up to the line of the leading edge of the stop seal blade. The WA aluminium weatherboards have snap on covers, which hide these fixings after installation. The WB &WC timber weatherboards have the seals fitted to the underside so that like the WA, the fixings are hidden after installation in the traditional way.

Sealmaster SmartSealPairs of inward opening doors
The door stop seal must be fitted down to the sill. The meeting stile seal should be carried to the top of the SmartSeal trough leaving sufficient gap for the doors to operate without striking the trough and the weatherboard cut to fit around it with the joint sealed with silicone sealant. The doors may need to be fitted with a door selector to ensure the correct leaf closes first. In order to reduce water penetration between the weatherboards fitted to each of the doors, the gap between them should be kept as small as possible. They should both be cut at an appropriate angle to compensate for the radial throw of the door.

Sealmaster SmartSealOutward opening doors
The threshold should be installed first, between the jambs and tight against the front of the stops. The surface mounted CA contact strip door seal should be cut to size, then fitted along the bottom of the door so that the blade rests on the threshold. The CA aluminium contact strips have snap on covers which hide the fixings after installation and which are profile to visually match the thresholds.

Drainage, bedding & additional protection
To assist drainage, the sill externally should slope away from the threshold at approximately 1 in 20. The trough should be carefully bedded in silicone sealaant. The front edge of the threshold should not be bedded in sealant as this will prevent drainage.  In conditions of severe exposure the weatherboard, contact strip and stop seal carriers should also be bedded in Sealmaster Silicone Sealant.
