FITTING INSTRUCTIONS for AR Range of Acoustic Stop Seals.
ANGLED BLADE INSERTS
ARK - ARL - ARM IN A PLANTED STOP
POSITION OF SEAL RELATIVE TO THE FACE OF THE DOOR
Blade seals are designed to function properly when compressed to approx. one third of their vertical projection when fitted.
FITTING TO PLANTED STOPS ON PLAIN JAMBS OR EXISTING STOPS
Ensure that the distance of the stop from the front of the door is as shown in the table above, having regard to to the insert being used.
FITTING TO DOOR EDGES
ARK is recommended where the gap between the door edge and the jamb is 2mm-3mm. Nothing is gained with an oversize blade in a small gap.
When cutting a rebate in the door edge a wall of timber, at least 5mm thick, must be left between the rebate and the face of the door. It is important
that the direction of the blades is as shown.
FITTING TO DOOR JAMBS
This is an alternative method we recommend should be done at the manufacturing stage because of the work involved. Note direction of blade seals. Figs. 4 and 5.
ARH TUBULAR SEAL
The seal is shown rebated in a planted stop. Fig.6. Correctly fitted the seal insert is normally compressed by 1mm. In practise this means that the compression of a continuous
seal around a door, or window, should be only sufficient to stop draught without excess resistance.
To prevent snatching of inserts on the hinge side of doors and windows the closing edge should be well rounded.
