RP17 | Up to 19mm Gap | Sweep Seal | FAQ

Q: What is it?
A: It is a self adhesive PVC sweep seal that can be easily cut to size and fixed to the bottom of doors to prevent draught.

Q: How does it work?
A: It works to reduce draughts with a flexible PVC wiping seal that is designed to press up against an opposing surface. It is self adhesive so it’s easy to adhere the product to the surface in question.

It’s important that a sweep seal such as the RP17 makes a definite seal against an opposing surface in order for it to be effective. If the RP17 simply hides the gap under the door without being pressed up onto something it will not stop draught.

Q: Are there limitations to using the RP17?
A: Yes, the RP17 is not suitable for exterior use.

Q: How do I know if it’s been installed properly?
A: You should see the blade of the RP17 flex as the door is latched. If it does not flex then it is not making a seal.
