Kilargo IS8020si Automatic Door Bottom Seal

A heavy duty, automatic door bottom seal which can be face-fixed or fully mortised into the bottom edge of single action doors. The seal has a spring loaded mechanism which lifts the seal clear of the floor as soon as the door is opened. Pressure against the door jamb on the adjustable brass strike button operates the seal automatically.

The seal contains a high efficiency mechanism to assist with the closing force requirements detailed in AS1428/1 (Design for Access and Mobility).

This seal is also available with antimicrobial silicone gasket(s).

  • Silver anodised aluminium with grey end plates
  • Stainless steel end plates and grey silicone gasket

Face-fixed: The seal is fixed to the face of the door bottom using the long fixing screws provided. (see detailed fitting instructions). The reversible aluminium top cover plate conceals the fixing screws and provides an aesthetic, architectural finish. A set of screw-fixed reinforced nylon end plates ensure longevity of the seal mechanism.

Fully-mortised: When the seal is to be fully-mortised, the seal (minus the top cover plate) is mounted into a 54mm deep x 22mm wide machined groove and screw-fixed back into the door stiles via stainless steel end plates, holding the seal in place.

Semi-rebated: When the seal is to be semi-rebated, the seal is mounted into a stepped rebate: a 54mm deep x 22mm wide machined groove on the side of the door to which the seal will be positioned. The seal can be screw-fixed into position and fitted with the cast-aluminium end plates provided.
