This “High Sound” Heavy Duty, Fully Mortised Automatic Door Bottom is designed to provide the ultimate in sound reduction. The aluminum casing is fitted with a double self-extinguishing and oil resistant solid neoprene insert (see detailed images), which ensure maximum sound control properties.
This product is designed to be fully mortised into a wooden door and requires a cutout of .924” x 1.575”. Mortised door bottoms offer better sound control than surface mounted as they can fill the complete length of the door. They are also great for designer doors and high end luxury condos, since the appearance of the door is not altered. It is non-handed (will work with both a right and left handed door) and can be applied directly over the floor surface or above a doorway saddle, though a saddle is recommended for higher sound control (A saddle is necessary also when the door bottom is sealing onto carpet). Available in aluminum mill finish and stanard stock sizes.
Screws and end plated are provided with your purchase. For installation instruction you can print our installation guide by clicking on the "installation guide" tab to your right.

How it Works:
This product utilizes a concealed flat mechanism which is activated by the pressure of closing the door (The brass nut at the head gets pushed in by the door jamb and that lowers the seal). The high quality neoprene rubber seal drops, filling gaps up to 1”, upon the closing of door to create a tight seal and raises automatically when the door is opened to ensure smooth door operation. Our door bottoms have been tested through 5 million open and closing of a door so that you are ensured a high quality long lasting product. For more information, see About Automatic Door Bottoms.
Automatic Door bottom can be trimmed on the field up to 3-4" depending on the size ordered, see installation guide tab.
Note: We recommend trying to keep the gap between the door and the floor at no more than 3/8" for maximum sound sealing. Larger gaps can be treated with a doorway saddle, or an added wood strip to the underside of the door.
