What Side Of The Door Do You Mount A Door Sweep To

Door Sweeps Are Always Mounted To Outside Of Storefront Door

One of the most commonly asked questions when installing a commercial door sweep is which side do I attach it to. Door sweeps are always attached to the exterior side of the storefront door. If you ever walk around town shopping at local retail stores and look at the storefront doors you will find that 99% doors have a brush door sweep that is attached to the bottom door rail on the outside of the door. Vinyl door sweeps are also mounted to the outside of the exterior door. This includes the combination vinyl rain drip door sweep. However, this makes sense. If the combination vinyl rain drip door sweep was mounted on the inside of the storefront door, then the rain drip portion of the door sweep would be pointless since rain and snow only come in contact with the outside of the storefront door.

Can A Door Sweep Be Added To The Inside Of A Storefront Door

Some building owners like have a very good bottom door seal. In these cases they may already have a door sweep on the outside of the door and choose to add an additional door sweep to the inside of the door to increase the door's sealing capability. If the door has two door sweeps (one on the interior and exterior), they must be installed and adjusted properly so that there is no increased resistance when a pedestrian opens the door.

Door sweeps should always be installed outside of the commercial door. When you need storefront door sweeps, shop Tahoma door sweeps. Tahoma has designed door sweeps specifically for commercial storefront doors. Shop today and receive FAST, FREE shipping!
