Are brush or rubber door seals better?
To prevent airflow (drafts) and provide acoustic benefits, we like rubber seals better.
Does a commercial door sweep go on the inside or outside of a door?
In most cases, door sweeps are attached to the outside of exterior doors. There are some interior doors that have sweeps on the inside or both sides. Ask your SEAL professional which sweep is right for your establishment.
What’s the difference between a door bottom and a door sweep?
A door sweep attaches to the door bottom. A door sweep may be made out of plastic, rubber, wood, or aluminum, or steel.
What’s the easiest door sweep to install?
L-shape door sweeps that screw into the door frames are the most durable, but slide-on door sweeps are easier for non-professionals.
Can you install a door sweep without removing the door?
Yes! Slide-on or snap-in door sweeps are available. THE SEALS carry and install both varieties.
Should a door sweep touch the floor?
The sweep should be installed so that it comes in contact with the bevel on the threshold, but should not touch the flooring material.
What are door shoes?
Door shoes provide additional protection from weather, water, and pests but are not visible on the outside of the door. They may be used in addition to door sweeps. Normally door shoes are made of a flexible material that fits in a slot underneath the door.
