Threshold. Or a sill

Or Soleplate. DOOR SILL as opposed to the term WINDOW SILL. OR DOOR STEP. A Soleplate is more correctly, the piece of timber (usually about 50mmthick) placed in the soil and beneath a timber or concrete Stump of a house. It is typically 200 x 300mm and made from Red Gum or Jarrah so that it lasts a long time in the damp ground.

(USA answer) The bottom of a door frame is usually called the threshold or doorsill. A sole plate is the first piece of wood that lays flat on its widest face at the bottom of a stud wall. Studs (usually 2x4's or 2x6's) rest vertically on the sole plate. It may be made of pressure treated wood to prevent decay or a specie that resists decay naturally such as cedar, or cypress, or redwood. Corrected in this answer: The plate that rests on top of a foundation wall is called the sill plate (not sole plate).

Do not remove the sides from the Glass, Just Loosen and remove the Long Screws. : On one side the Long Philips head screw is Obvious; On the other side it is Hidden in a Hole that may have a Rubber bumper plug.

There is a single fastening Screw holding the Cartridge in the Bottom frame. Remove the Fastening screws and slide the roller cartridge out. : I found replacement Cartridges at the local BIG Box Hardware store.

You are supposed to measure the "rough" opening. This is distance from the studs that line the door opening. (not from the door frame itself) Top to bottom then from side to side. If you already have a door there and are just replacing it then you can just measure the door and get one of the same size. Good luck.

To install a commercial door, first make sure that you are buying a door that fits the door frame where you are installing it. Then install it by attaching hinges to the door and the door frame.

The top hinge screws want to pull out of the door and frame due to the cantilevered centre of gravity of the door. At the bottom hinge the opposite happens and the screws are not in tension because the lower part of the door tends to "push" towards the frame. It is therefore common practice to fit two upper hinges close to one another near the top of the door and have the bottom hinge by itself near the bottom of the door. (All the above assuming the door is rigid and have some weight that cannot be negligible). A third hinge fitted midpoint between a top and a bottom hinges serves no purpose other than evenly supporting a thin flexible door against wind etc.
