Sealmaster Tornado


Applications

An effective draught, acoustic and light seal with minimal visual impact for internal, single swing doors.

Features and Benefits

Sealmaster TornadoThe Tornado threshold is designed to be grooved into the floor and can be used as a floor trim to allow a change of floor finish from one side of the door to the other.

The smooth, black, closed cell, neoprene insert forms a discrete threshold, either under the centre line of the door or towards one face or the other, depending on the overall design requirements. When used with one of the range of Tornado contact strips, this seal combination will provide an effective adjustable seal. The minimal upstand of the Tornado threshold insert will not impede foot or wheeled traffic. Tornado combination seals can be used with virtually all Sealmaster stop seals.

Threshold to be bedded in silicone and fixed to floor with screws/plugs. Contact strip to be fixed to door with screws (or adhesive in the case of plate glass doors).
