Design smooth, trouble-free transitions between inside and out

Specifying a well designed flush threshold drain is the key to achieving seamless level surfaces around bifold or sliding doors

Seamless transitions require more than high-end commercial glazing and doors. They demand the right drainage solution.

A threshold drain is a linear drainage system designed to prevent the accumulation of water in the door tracks or underneath the sills of bifold and sliding doors.

It earns the 'flush' designation when it seamlessly bridges indoor and outdoor surfaces at the same level. 

One of the standard features of any sliding or bi-fold door is a sill that requires a step down. A flush threshold drain allows architects to create a seamless transition. 

Without the correct drainage solution, water can easily infiltrate the building structure, causing problems for the doors and the interior. 

Proper drainage is essential to direct surface water away from a property effectively. A flush threshold drain collects water from the glazing track weep holes providing a safe, secure and heel guard safe solution.

Aquabocci’s R-47 Threshold Drain

Aquabocci's R-47 Threshold Drain prevents leaks while providing a flush finish. Benefits include:

  • 4 anodised colour choices so you can match to your door or tile finish: GT Silver, Titanium, Black and Champagne.
  • Corrosion-resistant material All grates are made from marine-grade anodised aluminium, which is corrosion-resistant and won't stain around chlorine or salt water - ideal for swimming pool applications and coastal locations.
  • Easy installation Simple-to-fit component system includes standard lengths of 1200mm or 2400mm and external and internal corners that can be joined on-site by the contractor. It can be cut to any length and is user-friendly, thanks to the drain's PVC spigot pipes, which are available in a selection of pipe size and can be attached anywhere along the underside of the PVC channel. Aquabocci provides clear installation instructions.
  • Simple maintenance Leaves and dirt can get washed into the drain. Aquabocci provides a lifting key that easily removes the grates from the channels allowing access for cleaning and water blasting.
