Special attention must be paid to expert sealing wherever many different trades work together on a building project. The synergy between the threshold, frame, structure and drainage system is highly complex, whether they are installed in a new build or a renovation, on a brick façade or an exterior insulation and finish system. This leads to widely varying structural mount conditions, depending on the external wall system and the installation type used. Structural elements in the building envelope are exposed to special and extreme stress loads caused by moisture, such as driving rain, splashing water, condensate, melt water and air humidity. Climatic differences in the interfaces between the individual components patio door, seal and drainage pose great, building-specific challenges for planners. This is where intelligent, well-matched system solutions are required. The structural mount must be created with utmost care to ensure a permanently functioning building envelope.
