I need some help, and after giving the architect my suggestions I told him that I’d ask all of you for ideas.

The building in question has a large assembly space on the 5th floor roof.  There is a pair of doors that swing from the roof deck into the building.  Everything was fine until Hurricane Irene blew into town, and then they ended up with a puddle inside the building on the pull side of these doors.

The doors are aluminum storefront and the seals came with the doors, so I don’t know what’s there but they’re willing to change it to whatever will work.  The threshold needs to meet accessibility requirements, so 1/2″ high maximum.  The doors will be high-use when the roof deck is occupied, so I don’t know if automatic door bottoms would hold up well, but I guess we could give them a shot.

Any other ideas?
