Weather sealed

Timber windows rely on weather seals for performance, and the right weather seals offer superior protection and offer productivity gains, according to Luke Piper, managing director at architectural ironmonger, BJ Waller.

“Joinery manufacturers won’t go back when they try Deventer weather seals because you get better performance, and they’re faster to fit,” he said.

“We were hooked as soon as we saw the benefits of Deventer, and we know joinery manufacturers will be too. That’s why we launched the ‘Try it, you’ll love it’ campaign so joinery manufacturers can try it for themselves, free of charge.”

He said Deventer has a closed cell construction that does not absorb water, which helps it to resist mould growth and staining. This improves weather performance and the seal stays cleaner. The improved closing pressure delivers a more solid action.

Deventer weather seals have a rigid back for fast, accurate fitting. It also features a universal seal boot that allows for a much broader range of groove tolerances to cope with painted products or hand finished frames.

“This simplified approach to manufacturing along with the clever Deventer V-cut Sash Tool significantly improves productivity to reduce unit manufacturing costs for joinery companies,” Luke said.

Deventer VarioSoft TPE foam seals suit all timber window and door styles and come in a range of colours. They’re suitable for casement, sliding sash, tilt and turn and fully reversible timber windows, as well as interior and exterior doors including French and bifolding styles. Deventer seals are available on nationwide next day delivery too.
