Door Draught Perimeter Seal (RP78) - FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What does a Door Draught Perimeter Seal (RP78) do?
A: The RP78 is a slim line door draught stopper that goes around the top and sides of your door. It seals the gap between the sides and top of the door and the jamb. On regular external inward opening doors the RP78 is fixed on the outside.
Q: Is the RP78 easy to install?
A: The RP78 is easy to install, however there are a few things to watch out for:
- You can apply too much pressure onto the door which will flex the door and potentially make it hard to close. The seal should just touch the door. Ensure to fit the screws in the centre of the fixing holes, this will allow you some adjustment room.
- The silicone seal is durable however, it can be punctured by the tip of a driver. To avoid this pilot drill the jamb first, this will also make it easier to ensure the screws fit in the centre of the slot.
- When fixing onto a metal door jamb we suggest you use a centre punch to mark the place of fixings on the metal. Use the drill or some of the self drilling screws to make the threaded fixing holes. Then fit the RP78 taking care to keep the driver tip on the screw head.
