A nylon brush seal with a PVC carrier, sweeps smoothly over hard floors.

The RP83 door bottom brush strip seal is suitable for all types of doors, including double, sliding, bi-fold and security doors.

NOTE: For easy door operation, determine which side of the door RP83 will function best. Brush 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.
