These weather strips are manufactured by Exitex, an Irish company who are producing some quality products, especially this one.
This is their "Threshex" door threshold weather seal, geared specifically around wheelchair access. The available lengths are both designed to fit typical wheelchair friendly door widths, and the threshold itsself is ramped for trolleys and wheelchairs, and utilises a collapsing weather seal, so it basically squashes flat very easily when weight is applied.
What's more, these are suitable for outward and inward opening doors, as the rubber seal is easily reversed to ensure ample contact with the lower edge of the door to form a good seal.
Another unique advantage this holds over others similar to it, is that it does not require you to rebate your door.
The base material for the ramp is Aluminium, with a rubber / EPDM seal.
Complies with Regulation .M!
Please be aware that these come in aluminium finish now, not brass effect as seen in the digital image to the left!

Hi guys, my name is Darrel and I'm head of the teach team here at LocksOnline. Many thanks for taking the time to tune in and have a quick look at one of our product review videos. Now we're putting these short little videos together to be able to give you our customers the opportunity to see the products in perhaps a little bit more detail than you may expect from just the webpage itself.
Now today I want to talk to you about a Disabled Wheelchair Friendly Threshold Seal, a door seal that we have on our website. It's a Doc M approved weather strip or threshold seal, and the idea is that it's quite flexible. So when you end up wanting to put a wheelchair over it, I don't know if you can see me pushing that down quite a lot there then it actually compresses down to allow the wheelchair to move over the threshold quite easily. So that's one of it's advantages. Also on this particular seal as well on the inside as well the manufacturers have put an additional seal on the inside to stop the weather driving in up underneath the actual threshold as well. So that's very well worth knowing.
Now they come in two different lengths. This particular length here if I just get a measure, of course you can cut these down to suit your particular application. That there is 930 millimeters long, so it's ideal for a 900 mil entrance way which would be a standard for a wheelchair-friendly entrance lobby. So it's obviously designed for that. It comes with its fixings as well. It comes with four screw fixings there and some long plugs in which to screw it down into the base. As I mentioned you can cut it to suit the size, but as you can see it's obviously measured to be a disabled-friendly entrance size anyway.
So if you wanted to actually have a look at the actual profile itself, there are descriptions on our webpage but that gives you some sort of idea of the actual profile shape there as well. I don't know if you can zoom in there and get a nice detailed image there of what the profile actual looks like.
So there you go guys. If you need a bit more information on these or any of the products we have by all means pop us over an email, use the live chat that we have, or simply do it the old-fashioned way and give us a call. Either way we'd love to hear from you, but more importantly we'd love to see you as one of our customers.
So from me, Darrel, and all of us here at the team, take care and we'll catch up with you real soon. Take care now.
