Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know which weather seal is right for my garage?
Action Industries makes flexible PVC (polyvinyl chloride) flap garage door bottom seals, EPDM rubber flap seals, foam seals and brush seals. Value-priced PVC flap seals are flexible, one-piece seals that you can install on garage door bottom plastic or aluminum retainers.
Action Industries garage door rubber weather seals will withstand extreme temperatures ranging from -60 degrees to 200-plus degrees Fahrenheit. They can be installed on aluminum retainers.
Versatile brush seals help stop costly damage from the elements and pests. Our Action Industries FlexBrush coiled brush seal is ideal for longer-length garage door bottoms. Purchase by the foot in standard or extra-wide widths.
How do I fix the seal on my garage door?
If you notice a wavy or wrinkled appearance after installing your Action Industries garage door bottom seal onto an aluminum retainer, simply crimp one end, pull tight and then crimp the other end. The result will be an even, more professional looking seal.
If you have uneven concrete in your garage, you can close the gap by installing an Action Industries Storm Shield threshold. Use it with vinyl or rubber garage door bottom seals. The Storm Shield 2 garage door floor threshold by Action Industries is an easy-installation peel-and-stick version.
If you notice a gap (as in, light appearing between the seal and floor) on your commercial T-bottom seal, add a brush seal to seal the gap. For other fixes, see our downloadable Action Industries product manuals or the free installation guides that come with your order.
How do I install a seal for my garage door?
Most garage door bottom weather seals are made to slide into place on aluminum retainers or nail into place on other retainers. For example, with T-bottom seals, first install an aluminum bottom seal retainer. Then, simply slide the seal into place. Action Industries FlexBrush seals are ideal for installing on pre-existing retainers.
