Follow these 3 easy steps to ensure you correctly measure for your Cleverseal Door Dam™. Installed behind the garage door guide track, Door Dam is a hard-wearing floor mounted garage threshold seal that provides an effective mini dam inside the line of your garage door.
- CHOOSE INSTALLATION TYPE
Start by looking at the inside of your garage to decide what is the best solution to install Door Dam either wall to wall, catchment, or catchment to wall.Wall to wallWall to wall if there is less than 300mm of wall either side of door opening.CatchmentIf there is more than 500mm of wall on both sides of the door opening.Wall to catchmentIf there is less than 300mm of wall on one side, and more than 500mm on the other side of the door opening.
Wall to wallMeasure the complete width of the garage internally, wall to wall. This will give you the overall length of Door Dam required.
CatchmentMeasure from back of guide track “A” to the back of guide track “B”. Add 276mm to this measurement to give you length “E”.Measure from wall “D” to the back of guide track “A”. Add 138mm to this measurement to give you length “F”.Add measurement “E” and 2 x measurements “F” (left and right sides). This will give you the overall length of the Door Dam required.*remember to allow for cutting the angles
Wall to catchmentIf installing wall to catchment (as diagram) place tape measure at wall “A” and measure across the garage toping to the outside of the door track “B”. Add 138mm to that measurement to give you the length of the longest piece “C”.Then measure from wall “D” to the outside of the door track “B” add 138mm to that measurement to give you the length of the return leg “E”.Adding these two measurements “C” and “E” together will give you the overall length of the Door Dam required.*remember to allow for cutting the angles
