About Thresholds
 
Thresholds, sometimes referred to as sills or transition strips are valuable accessories that can be used when installing a Dreamsreen. For most installations, no threshold is necessary as the bottom track of the Dreamscreen ends up resting beside the existing threshold or sill that is part of the door. However, when that does not happen we use a threshold to end up with a nice finish.

The bottom track looks like this.

It is 11/16" tall and all are the same.

 

No Threshold

With most installations, no threshold is required. The bottom track simply ends up juxtaposed or adjacent to the existing sill.


Flat Threshold

Sometimes the track ends up a little further away from the sill. Here is when we use a "Flat" threshold to bridge the span.


Step Threshold

Sometimes there's no existing sill or there's a step up that must be addressed. Here we use a "Step" threshold to create a foundation for the bottom track. Unlike the other types, this threshold gets installed before the Dreamscreen.

Standard Threshold

When there's no existing sill or the track ends up on top of it, we use a "Standard" threshold to reduce a 'kicking or tripping' incident.

Front Threshold

Sometimes space won't allow us to use a standard threshold so we have a specially designed "Front" threshold which allows the track guide to pass unimpeded.
