Why Fit Self-Adhesive Brush Pile Seals to Your Windows & Doors?
Self-adhesive brush pile seals, also known as brush strips, weatherstripping brush, draught seals or wool pile seals, will help to make your home, workplace or commercial building quieter, cleaner and more energy efficient. When fitted to your windows and doors, brush seals provide an inexpensive and versatile solution, protecting against draughts, heat, noise pollution, insects, vermin and water ingress.
How effective are brush pile seals at preventing draughts and air leakage?
Thanks to their dense bristles, self-adhesive brush pile seals are an excellent way to reduce air leakage around doors and windows and prevent draughts. Due to their flexibility, brush seals are a great draught-preventing solution in older buildings or to seal uneven surfaces, as the malleable bristles conform to any irregularities, sealing gaps and preventing air infiltration. A brilliant way to seal the gap between your door and threshold, brush seals can provide an impressive three times more air infiltration reduction than vinyl seals.
Due to the flexible nature of brush pile seals and the way the bristles contour to a surface, the brush pile forms a tight seal and blocks any cold or warm air from passing through. As a result, brush pile seals help improve your building's energy efficiency, reducing heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer.
Do brush pile seals help prevent noise pollution?
If you need to reduce noise pollution in your building and create a quieter indoor environment, brush seals can help. By sealing any gaps, the dense bristles of brush pile help to restrict the transmission of sound waves and reduce noise infiltration. By providing a physical barrier, brush pile seals help to reduce airborne noise from passing through any cracks or gaps. Self-adhesive brush pile seals are an excellent solution to help reduce high-frequency sounds, such as voice and traffic noise.
Can brush pile seals help with dust and insect prevention?
Not only do brush seals help to reduce draughts and noise in your building, but they also help prevent access to unwanted dust, dirt, pollen and insects.
During the warmer months, self-adhesive brush pile seals can help to prevent pollen from entering your home, workplace or commercial building, improving the lives of any allergy sufferers. The brush seal’s coarse bristles trap and prevent pollen particles from entering your space by closing the gaps around door and window edges.
The tightly packed bristles of brush pile also make it much more difficult for unwanted insects and pests, such as mosquitoes, flies and ants, to enter your indoor space.
