MIND THE GAP – Coastal Extends its HOLLODEEN® Threshold Range to Deliver Wider Benefits

25th October 2016


We are delighted to announce that here at Coastal we have extended our highly popular and innovative Hollodeen® threshold range to incorporate standard door thresholds.

W16LogoOriginally launched to use in tandem with Bi-fold thresholds, the addition to the range incorporating standard in and out door thresholds was warmly greeted when we launched the new range extension at W16.

And what’s more, with the thresholds in stock, all you need to do is call us with your specified size and we will cut to order for you – no waiting or lead times.

So Why Hollodeen®?

Hollodeen® is a highly innovative, unbreakable and life-long threshold enabling the trade to say goodbye to traditional problems of rotting timber cills.

Manufactured in Germany from a high quality resin that looks like stone and comes in four different finishes – Arduin Grey, Black, Silver Grey and Steel Grey, the new Hollodeen® threshold provides a lifetime of durability, removing the need to buy, machine and finish timber before fitting track.


Created from 90% recycled material, the Hollodeen® thresholds can be quickly and easily fitted by a single person, providing significantly increased lifespan and more efficient operation of door sets.

The resin used to create the new thresholds offer thermal advantages, the low heat conductivity prevents thermal bridges, reducing the linear heat losses that are unavoidable with other threshold options. It is sold in 9 lengths up to 3 metres.

The Hollodeen® thresholds also meet the Part M Disabled access requirements and come with the option of a jamb kit which not only speeds up the fitting process but prevents the Jamb from rotting.

Recesses for shootbolts can be easily made on site where required, once installed the threshold is maintenance-free and never needs painting.


“We are delighted to be able to extend the Hollodeen® range further to incorporate standard door thresholds. The range provides a fantastic solution for anyone fitting bi-folds and standard doors. Such is the durability of the resin, that the threshold lifespan is essentially unlimited as when it is exposed to moisture there is simply no risk of any rot. It’s also unbreakable, has a fire resistance of 30 minutes when used in conjunction with fire resistant doors and has exceptional thermal qualities,” said Coastal MD Loren Jenner.

“And with product in stock, there are no lead times as every order is cut to the required size before being dispatched.”
