Weatherstripping, in essence, is simply a sealing product that ensures openings of all kinds, including doors, windows, hatches and trunks, are protected from many of the aggressive forces of nature. This term also often refers to the materials used in order to carry out such sealing processes. The ultimate goal of weatherstripping is to prevent rain, hail, sleet, snow and any other form of moisture due to water from entering a building or piece of equipment. Either returning or rerouting the water typically accomplishes the prevention process. Another goal of installing or incorporating weatherstripping onto doors and windows is to keep inside air in, resulting in an energy savings in terms of heating and air conditioning costs.
Weatherstripping for residential & commercial buildings:
Each and every single exterior door, or any door to an uninsulated room such as an attic or cellar, must be weatherstripped as per the regulations set forth by building codes in various jurisdictions in Ontario. Doors can typically be divided into private home doors and doors for commercial properties. Some of these doors receive what we refer to as custom weatherstripping from the factory. This is precisely where A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd. comes in. For many years now, we have supplied construction companies, door manufacturers and general contractors with weatherstripping for their residential, commercial and industrial applications. A.J. Rubber & Sponge Ltd. has the in-house capability to produce custom weatherstripping with a number of variable parameters including weatherstripping length, weatherstripping width, and weatherstripping thickness.
