Efficient Garage Door Seal Important In Any Climate

Whether you live in a cooler northern climate or a warmer southern climate, it’s important to make certain the overhead door in your garage or shop area is well-sealed.

The fact is that a poorly-sealed door can lead to an uncomfortable environment in both cold and hot periods of the year.

Air infiltration causes problems in both comfort and expense.

It’s time for you to stop infiltration around your overhead door – and there are two great products that will do just that.

To put it another way — It’s time to Stop The Snirt!

Okay, first of all, what is snirt? Traditionally, it is the unsightly and messy combination of snow and dirt that can blow underneath or through the sides of a poorly-sealed overhead door.

In a broader sense, snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under the door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern.

Check out the gap on any current overhead door in your garage or shop area to get an idea of the problem you are dealing with. Did you know that drafts can bring dirt, snow, ice, mud, plus heat and cooling loss through a space of 1/32nd of an inch? Bugs and spiders can creep through a space of only 1/16th of an inch. Mice can enter your shop area through a space the size of a pencil (and, of course, it’s very important to keep rodents away from your vehicles). It’s time to put a stop to all that infiltration.

With our revolutionary SnirtStopper you can indeed Stop The Snirt!

The SnirtStopper system features two revolutionary products — the BottomSealer and SideSealer — to create a cleaner and safer indoor area. It also helps reduce energy bills and provide a more comfortable space by keeping out the cold in winter and the heat in summer. As an example, in one large Midwest building with multiple overhead doors, the monthly heating cost was just over $1,500 a month. After installing new seals on all the doors, the bill was reduced to $689. The new low heating cost easily paid for the product within a month.

Another important feature to consider – the BottomSealer does not freeze to the ground like many current sealers on the market.

The BottomSealer, along with the SideSealer (and TopSealer), will close up overhead and other outside doors just like you would seal up the front door of your home. Now is the time to move past that old overhead door stripping that doesn’t work

The BottomSealer is self-adjusting and eliminates gaps of up to two inches – and you don’t have to replace your current seal. The Kevlar-reinforced material will not wear out and mice, along with other critters, will not chew through it!

The system is easy to install and all needed hardware is included. Our company has extensive experience in sealing all types of doors, including sliding doors and bifold doors. We can help you solve any problems related to your current entry system.

These products will pay for themselves with the amount of energy you will save. It will prevent heat loss in the winter and keep your area cooler in the summer.
