Help Notes for selecting Acoustic Seals
Sides and Top
When sealing a door you need a seal for each left and right hand side of the frame and one for along the top of the frame. Most our our frame seals come in kits whereby you get the two lengths for the vertical sides and the smaller length for across the top of the frame. Generally we supply a standard doorset 'kit' where the long lengths are 2.1m so first check that this will be long enough for your door. Most people want to 'retrofit' seals to a door already there so the surface mounted range is the easiest. If you are making up a new door and frame you may want to consider the rebated range as they can be 'hidden' or 'rebated' into the frame.
As a generalisation
The 7025 is a good lightweight general purpose seal.
Some people (especially studio guys) like the magnetic range. These do provide a very positive airtight seal but remember that you need to source your own steel strips to fix onto the door face as we dont supply these.
Self adhesive seals
A very quick and cheap fix it for the sides and top is the self adhesive 1212. This used in conjunction with a suitable threshold seal can provide excellent results. Again these are supplied in single doorset kits containing 3 lengths.
When you have sealed the sides and top of the door you will need to look at sealing the door bottom (where the gap is usually the largest).
This is where threshold seals are used.
