Last but certainly not least, installing is a quick and hassle-free process. Suitable for sealing gaps to the perimeter of doors and windows and is available in long lengths that can be easily cut to fit your specific needs. Moreover, eM2012’s boast the ability to seal over particularly large gaps, because it is big enough to bridge over a 15mm gap between the face of the door and its frame. Additionally, they are perfect for older doors and windows that are not lining up the way they used to. A very common thing throughout Australia.
And when wider isn’t wide enough? eM3012’s!
If you need to seal over even bigger gaps, eM3012 is the ideal candidate. Being 10mm wider than its smaller counterpart, ecoMasters eM3012 can bridge up to a 25mm gap making even the largest gaps around the doors and windows of your home simple to seal up effectively and efficiently.
When a regular stop bead is just not good enough
The most commonly used door stop bead size is a 30 x 12mm. Of course, regular stop beads are just that. Stop beads simply stop the door from going too far past the latch. In fact, when you want a stop bead that also perfectly seals the perimeter of the door then it’s time to replace the stop beads with an eM3012.
Also great for sliding applications
Because you can choose the seal that you fit into the eM2012 and eM3012, you can select compressive seals for hinged door applications but you can also choose brush seals so that you can use these in sliding applications, such as for external timber sliding doors.
