What Are Door/Window Seals/Gaskets?
Seals or gaskets are a rubber like material which goes all around the door or window. The material is compressible, meaning that when a door or window is shut the seal will become compressed between the door/window and the frame creating an airtight seal.
This airtight seal provide multiple benefits, mainly heat retention and sound control. Other benefits can include light infiltration and smoke and fire control.
Over time the seals can suffer from wear and tear, meaning that they don’t work at optimum levels. When this occurs we would recommend getting replacement door or window seals.
What Are Window Vents?
Window vents do the opposite to seals and gaskets, allowing you to have a flow of fresh air into your property. These give you the best of both worlds, allowing fresh air in during the summer and stopping any draughts during the winter months.
