RP16 | Astragal | French Door Centre Seal | FAQ

Q: What is it?
A: The RP16 is an architectural quality seal that seals the gap between double doors.

Q: How does it work?
A: The RP16 is specially designed for stopping air transfer between double doors. The aluminum carrier is fixed to the edge of one door and its silicon blade seals against the other door. This mechanism provides an excellent seal between your doors.

Q: How hard is the RP16 to install
A: The RP16 is more advanced than a standard DIY product.  There are detailed instructions and pro tips to walk you through the installation process.
If you are not confident to undertake this level of work then EMV as a centre seal is potentially a better way for you to go. 

Q: How do I know it has been installed properly?
A: When the active door is closed the blade of the RP16 should be sealed against the entire length of the opposite door.

Q: Will my door still function as a door?
A: This product should not prevent your door from its natural function, if you can no longer open or close your door or it’s difficult to operate after installation, then it may have been installed incorrectly.
