For doors and windows to function they must have gaps between the rails and stiles and the jambs. These gaps allow easy opening, closing and accommodate for normal bulding movement (shrinking and expansion). However, such gaps can also allow the intrusion of noise, fire and smoke, rain, cold draughts, light, insects and vermin, and the leakage of heating or air conditioning. The solution is to fit a sealing system which seals the gaps around doors and windows when closed. Properly fitted they can provide a complete and continuous seal for all door and window types that will not impede normal use. Seals will mainly be installed in exterior doors and windows, such as for folding, sliding, casement, awning, etc .
The seals are made from either PVC, silicon rubber, EPDM (*) or thermo plastic pelastomer (TPE), whether or not in combination with anodised aluminum
(*) EPDM rubbers have exceptional memory which means that the sections will resume their original shapeafter long periods of compression, such as can be experienced in infrequently used doors and windows
For our seals we use imported seals from either the Raven brand or the Henderson brand (both brands Australia made)
