Please find this product at http://absupply.net This video is to bring you a closer look at the Pemko 136SN satin nickel anodized aluminum interlocking threshold. This is a really nice threshold in the sense that it’s kind of high tech for thresholds, as high tech as thresholds can be without being epoxy coated or whatever. This is high tech because it is both an interlocking threshold and one that features a weep hole system with this high dam profile here. If any water were to get inside of here, there are weep holes drilled in the threshold in the trough. So any water that gets inside of here is going to filter down underneath the threshold. Then this notch on the face allows the water to exit on the front. Leave the way you came kind of situation to the water. So interlocking makes it extremely effective at keeping the door sealed but that weep hole system with those holes drilled, that water is going to get underneath the threshold then exit out the preparation in the front of it. Now interlocking, with an aluminum threshold like this, whether it’s aluminum mill finish, dark bronze, gold, satin nickel, you’re going to get a J hook, or hook strip or an interlocking strip. We call them J strips, you can see why, or just hook strips and this gets nailed to the bottom of your door. Now how that works, it is really pretty obvious but, the hook strip is attached to the bottom of the door, the door closes up against the lip and locks like that, and you can get the impression there that that’s going to make a real positive mechanical interlock. When that door’s closed there’s really nothing going through there. They’re proven to be effective over decades of use. Really the only thing that wears out are these hook strips and it’s not from wear and tear it’s from unintentional damage. People put a rug in front of the door and then the door’s opened and this gets caught and torn off. Doesn’t happen often but the fact of the matter is if someone buys one of these only that’s generally why. So that’s how this works and you’re going to get small little zinc nails to put it on and that’s just a galvanized piece of roll formed metal. You’re going to get nails and screws obviously. The nails are in that little pouch there and they’re just 7/8″ long number 16 wire thickness brad. They’re larger but pretty close to brads. You’re going to get the screws to hold the threshold down. Now there’s an option also of a water pan. You have to select whether or not you want the water pan and this is the aluminum water pan that you see here and the entire job that this does is the threshold sits on top of it, and that threshold system, if any water gets inside of the threshold then back out, it will pull on this aluminum or brass, protecting the sill from erosion or premature deterioration because you have water sitting there. In my opinion, the water pan is so inexpensive that you can’t make an argument to not buy it and you can discard it if you end up not using it. So dimensionally, this threshold, and there’s an image below this video showing everything important about it, as you can see it’s 4-7/8″ wide, which is fairly common for residential doors, 1″ tall, that’s also pretty common as well, but you’re going to want to be real careful before ordering this to confirm that a 1″ height on the threshold is compatible with your existing undercut, especially if it’s an existing door. If it’s a new door, you can manufacture it to suit this. If I was going to make the undercut something different, I obviously wouldn’t leave a lot of room between the top of this and the bottom of my door, an 1/8″ something in that range because the mouth on this hook is large but it’s not so large that you can leave a substantial amount of room. I would say an 1/8″ is where I would start with that. So from the sill down here, to where your door is going to be, maybe an 1-1/8″, 1-3/16″, something in that range. Generally people that buy these make a living installing this material so they’ll draw on their actual experience in what to do. And as a result of those conspiring features on this threshold, the interlock and the weep hole system, it’s a great choice every single time, especially for an exterior application where you expect rain. That’s the idea of the weep hole. Pemko is a full-line manufacturer of all things weather stripping related.
