NOTE: For easy door operation, determine which side of the door the RP17 will function best. Flexible seal should lightly engage the sealing surface and sweep smoothly across the floor. Uneven or ramped floors may cause the seal to drag. Recommended adhesion temperature is above 21 degrees celcius. Full adhesion strength may take a few days.
