Installing a door bar for the first time? Help is at hand! This specially designed video will take you step-by-step through the process of installing a threshold strip, the finishing touch to your newly-laid floor.
In this video, we are going to learn how to fit a threshold strip.
Fitting a threshold strip is the final touch to covering a floor. It is used to aesthetically close the small gaps between the floor and the door .
For this task, you will need a pre-drilled threshold strip, a hacksaw, a tape measure, a pencil, a metal file, plugs, screws and an impact drill.
There are three stages to this installation, which will be outlined here
Unhinge the door.
Measure the width of the door.
Check the measurements against the threshold strip.
Using a hacksaw, cut the threshold strip at a right angle. If possible, leave the protective plastic on, to avoid scratching the threshold strip.
With a soft metal file, file down the ends of the strip.
Place the threshold strip on the ground, to make sure it fits.
With a pencil, mark the points where you need to drill the holes in the floor.
Drill the holes into the floor.
Adjust the drill heads to suit the surface on which you are working.
This floor is made out of concrete, so we will work with an impact drill.
Fasten the plugs provided with the threshold strip into the floor.
To make this easier, ensure that the neck of the plug is touching the floor.
Position the threshold strip.
Remove the protective film.
Re-hinge the door.
You now know how to fit a threshold strip.
