Your garage door is the largest entrance to your home, so if your garage door has a wrong seal, your house will be exposed to harsh environment and unwelcome pests, such as insects and rodents. If you want to save energy, reduce heating or cooling costs, protect the garage from water damage and prevent pests, sealing the garage door can do the above. Although all garage doors have weatherproof seals, they will wear out over time and need to be replaced. Garage door seals are also known as weatherstrips and distance markers.
The garage door seal is important because it helps prevent debris, rain, snow and vermin. It helps close the gap between the floor and the door. This means that the seal will prevent cold air and moisture from entering through the gap around the garage door to provide the best insulation.
Bottom seal: This is a common weather seal. This seal is installed at the bottom of all garage doors. Because your floor may not be completely uniform from one side of the entrance to the other, it helps your door to be level with the ground when closed and seal the gap. Due to changes in humidity and temperature, this seal may be prone to bending and shrinkage. The materials are EPDM and PVC, and the width is 65mm, 85mm and 170mm, which can adapt to different door panel thickness and gap.
Side seal: Wind and rain can also enter the garage from the side and top of the garage door. In order to prevent this, the side seal plays an important role in preventing dust and smoke from entering. The materials of the side seal include PVC, EPDM, MBS, etc. we have different types of side seals to adapt to different tracks.
The garage door seal also plays an important role in the operation of the garage door. You can find out whether you need to replace the seal of the garage door through your own inspection. If the bottom seal cracks, flow lines or obvious air flow is generated under the door, your bottom seal has problems and cannot work normally. If you notice that the seals are beginning to fall off the garage door, you may need to replace those side seals. Please contact our Master well, We can provide you with technical guidance.
