Not only will brush seals make your living spaces less drafty and more comfortable, they’ll help make your home quieter, cleaner and more energy-efficient too. Also called draft seals, weatherstripping bush or wool pile seals, brush strip is inexpensive and versatile and helps to protect your home against draughts, noise pollution, dust, insects and water ingress.  


Replacing Your Door Seals  

How often you’ll need to replace your external sliding door seals will depend on various factors, such as the quality of your brush seal, how often you open and close your sliding doors and the amount of sunlight and direct heat your seals are exposed to.  

A high-quality brush seal will typically last for several years before it needs to be replaced, but it’s worth regularly inspecting your seal for signs of wear and deterioration every year. Do your sliding door seals have any gaps, fraying or compression loss? If so, it’s probably time to replace it to keep your home warm and draught-free.
