The sealing strip is a product that seals one thing so that it is not easy to open, and functions as shock absorption, waterproof, sound insulation, heat insulation, dustproof, and fixing.

The sealing strip is an important part in the door and window. The sealing strip is a powerful measure to ensure the airtightness, watertightness and sound insulation of the door and window. At the same time, it is a reliable guarantee for the safety of the glass in the door and window after being subjected to external force. So how to install the door and window seals? Our Shower Door Seal Supplier will come to tell you.

In our daily life, windows are tightly installed to avoid leakage of water, and window seals are usually installed. At the same time, the doors can be tightly sealed without leaking air. Seals are also installed on the doors, especially the shower door seals are installed on the shower doors. Strips, so that it can play the role of sound insulation, so that it can be dustproof, waterproof, soundproof and sealed. However, many people still don't know much about it, especially when installing this piece. Let me introduce the installation method and precautions for the door and window seals.

Door and window seals are mainly used in plastic doors and windows, aluminum alloy doors and windows, wooden doors and windows and other architectural decorative doors and windows. Plastic steel door and window seals on the market are generally extruded from PVC, modified PVC, EPDM, elastomer seals (including TPV, TPE, TPR, SEBS), silica gel, etc., so the common shower door seals including PVC Shower Door Seal Strip, etc.

Window seals can be divided into three categories: door door cover seals, tops, and glass seals (strips) depending on the application. The door sleeve sealing strip is mainly used for sealing between the door panel and the door frame, while the top strip is mainly used for sealing between the door frame and the door leaf, and the glass sealing strip is mainly used for sealing between the glass and the door leaf and the frame. The installation position of the top is generally on the door and window sash, around the frame fan or on the sealing bridge (wind block), and the sealing between the frame and the fan is enhanced. If the top size is too large or the vertical hair is too high, not only the assembly is difficult, but also the resistance of the door and window is increased, especially the initial resistance of the opening and the resistance of the closing position are large. If the specification is too small, the height of the vertical top is not enough to escape from the slot, so that the sealing performance of the (door) window is greatly reduced. The tops need to be silicified. The quality of the tops is flat, the bottom plate and vertical hair are smooth, no bending, no pitting or bubbles on the bottom plate, the vertical hair and the bottom plate are firmly bonded, the density is uniform, and the hair is not easy to be shed.

In addition, because the sealing strip is affected by the weather and sunlight, it will shrink, aging and deform. Therefore, the sealing strip is not allowed to work under tension, and the sealing strip should be kept free. In order to tightly clamp the glass, the sealing strip is often pulled too tight during the installation process, and the free state is not ensured, so that the sealing strip is in a state of tensile deformation. Practice has proved that due to the installation of the sealing strip in the state of tensile deformation, the sealing strip has been detached, broken, cracked and the like. For this reason, at the time of installation, the length of the sealing strip is longer than the fitting side of the door and window, the bevel is broken at the corner, and the adhesive is firmly adhered, leaving sufficient expansion allowance.

See here that everyone should have a certain understanding of how to install the door and window seals, use the correct installation method during installation, pay attention to the maintenance of the seals in daily life, then the maximum effect of the seals can be exerted.
