The new M/M+ floor plate Flush sits flush in the sill and can be used with any threshold scenario, including aluminum ADA sill, wood or stone thresholds, finished floors, concrete, tile, wood, and more. Because the floor plate is now perfectly flush, gasketing and drop seals can easily deploy without scraping up against the floor plate when actuated.
Bridgeport Worldwide has recently begun to offer the Athmer Schall-Ex L-15/30 WS Pivot door seal solution. It features an adjustable roller actuator, which helps negotiate the pivot door’s unique approach to the jamb. As shown above, it can work with either the 11 mm or 7 mm gap. Now, pivot door manufacturers can provide high-performance automatic seals at the threshold (and at the top, too!).
The push for larger pivot doors has also pushed for better-engineered slabs. Prior to this, to be able to incorporate high-performance drop seals, you would need to make your door at least 2-1/2“ (~63,5 mm) thick. The new plates make it possible to run the Athmer door seal alongside your System M32+ and get it all into a minimum 2-1/4“ (~57,15 mm) thick door.
We expect that the synergy between the performance of the System M+, automatic door seals, and these new flush plates will result in an enhanced level of performance for the entire pivot door opening.
