When you have an outside door with level access (for wheelchairs etc), how do you stop water coming in under the door?

Wheelchair access needn't be completely 100% level, it just can't have steps.

It's feasible to use a door sill (such as this) to stop weather getting in under a door. It's also possible to have a narrow channel under the door, too, that takes rain and moisture off to the side.
