What is special about Around Door Seals
The usual fix for draughty doors is to apply a self-adhesive foam or rubber strip to the door frame - it works as an internal seal by closing the gap between door and door frame. However, the gaps around the sides and top of the door invariably vary in size so the strip is either, too thick and requires more effort to close the door where the strip is tightly compressed, or not thick enough and some draughts remain.
Around Door Seals are applied as an external seal and eliminate all draughts. The seal is positioned against the outside of the door so the rubber pressing lightly against the door creates total gap closure while allowing the door to close with little effort.
It looks great and makes for a smart attractive appearance. The carrier piece comes in various finishes so the choice can compliment other door fittings or blend into the background.Fitting Instruction Tips
1. Keep the door closed for all measurements and fitting.
2. Drill pilot holes using a drill bit smaller than the screw. This is essential as many doors are hardwood - avoid damaging pins, achieve accurate alignment and fit the seal with minimum effort.
3. For a neat efficient seal, cut a notch from the rubber of each side piece where it meets the rubber of the top piece.
4. When cutting lengths to size, either
A. cut a piece off either end so the pin holes are the same distance from the ends,
or B. make one cut and drill a new hole at one end to receive a pin.
This will ensure the seal is fixed firmly at either end.
