FITTING INSTRUCTIONS for RC Range of Acoustic Stop Seals.
The illustration above includes a milled slot as supplied when the holder lengths are specially cut to customers requirements. Standard
lengths do not have milled slots.
POSITION OF SEAL RELATIVE TO THE FACE OF THE DOOR
Blade seals are designed to function correctly when compressed to approx. 1/3rd of their vertical position when fitted. Tubular seals are normally compressed by 1mm, just sufficient to stop draughts without excessiver resistance. The diagrams below show the range of inserts available which can be used with the RC holder. The distance given between the door face and the rear of the holder when correctly fitted reflect the compressibility ratios of the seal inserts.
Normally RC is fitted to a planted stop. This enables fine adjustment of the seal position to be made relative to
the door face.
It can either be surface mounted or set into a groove. Fixing is by pins.
PREPARATION Of TIMBER
Timber edges which may affect the proper working of the seal must be chamferred or well rounded to avoid damaging the insert.
FITTING TO PLANTED STOPS
With the planted stops fitted on the head and side frames, at the correct distance from the door, measure the distance at the head
between the side stops. Cut the holder and insert seal to fit and fix the holder in place across the head stop using the supplied pins.
FITTING RC TO AN EXISTING STOP
RCV/RCW PINNED INTO A REBATE CUT IN EXISTING INTEGRAL STOP
To prevent damaging the insert the closing edge of the hinge side of the door should be well rounded as shown. This applies particularly when fitting RCY, RCX and RCZ. Solvent base glues, paints etc must not be allowed to come in contact with the elastomeric seal inserts.
