1 estrella2 estrellas3 estrellas4 estrellas5 estrellas (Ninguna valoración todavía)

Heating our house is a major expense in winter. A temperature of 20ºC keeps your home warm enough. Good insulation is needed to stop energy losses. Weatherstripping will help us to improve this insulation without having to invest large amounts of money.

There is weatherstripping for doors and windows. Window weatherstripping are placed on the sides of the frames to stop draughts through the cracks when the window is closed. It is usually sold in rolls with adhesive backing so you can cut it to the size required.

It comes in a variety of sizes, thicknesses and materials such as rubber, foam rubber or foam.

The weatherstripping for doors is another matter. There is a wide variety of choices, but the most common ones are metal with a fibre brush or with an adhesive rubber strip that is stuck in place inside the door.

The hidden or invisible weatherstripping does not alter the appearance of the door as they are recessed under the door. You will need to have a specific tool for the mortising or it is better to leave it to a professional.

Finally, there is weatherstripping with automatic opening and closing. Installing this weatherstripping requires holes to be made in the door and framework. The advantages of the automatic opening and closing are the smooth operation and durability.

All the different weatherstripping come in a wide range of finishes, from basic colours to imitation wood. You can find our large range of weatherstripping at Why don’t you check out our other  hardware articles or DIY tips
