Zero dropseals have been tested to five million cycles and are also available surface mounted (for retrofit). The product is available in stock sizes from 305mm to 3497mm in 152mm increments, and may be cut down by up to 152mm (less for sizes under 762mm) from the non-operating end to suit exact door widths. Units are not handed (except 321AA, 323A and 354A), and operate from one end only so they can be used on pairs of doors.
Special purpose dropseals are also available with light springing for wheelchair users, with lead lining for X-ray doors, and with carbon filled silicone rubber gasket to combat electromagnetic/radio frequency interference. These units ensure an effective seal at the bottom of the door against air and smoke filtration, or penetration by sound, light, flames, toxic gases, electromagnetic and radio interference or X-rays. Used in conjunction with other Zero frame seals they form part of a total door kit.
All ZERO automatic door bottoms function the same way. The mechanism causes the insert seal to activate on the hinge side first. It prevents the seal from dragging along the floor or threshold while the door is being closed to avoid door hang-up or closing delay.
