Adjustable seals, screw-fixed to frame.

Bottom Seals

RP38 seal rebated to leaf and closing onto a steel threshold (Type E).


The SPA29-P requires suitable latching in order for the frame seals to fully seal the gap between door leaf and frame.

Practically any standard door hardware can be used on the SPA29-P, however the proposed hardware must be advised to Pacific Door Systems Ltd to assess the suitability, before manufacture.

Any penetrations through the leaf should be packed with acoustic materials (e.g. batts) wherever possible.
