Weather stripping products were designed to seal windows and doorways to prevent the loss of energy and keep a room at the desired temperature. These are installed in homes and commercial buildings to make space comfortable and to keep the temperature of rooms constant.

In restaurants and foodservice, weather stripping improves the function of freezers and walk-in coolers. This maintains a constant temperature to protect food products and keep them fresh. Weather stripping is often applied to food display equipment so perishables continue to maintain their freshness and good looks.

Weather stripping is not only about maintaining a constant temperature. Correctly installed weather stripping  prevents the introduction of moisture which can affect the comfort of a room and compromise the wholesomeness of food products.

Applications for High-Quality Stripping

High-quality weather stripping can be used anywhere that energy loss or moisture penetration may be a problem. No matter how well engineered, gaps often develop between the openings of doors and window frames. When spaces develop, warm or cold air escapes causing units to work harder to maintain the set temperature. Moisture can also penetrate the protected area and cause significant problems.

Buildings and refrigeration units are not the only locations for energy-saving insulating stripping. Automobile doors and windows benefit from the application of stripping to maintain comfortable interiors and keep moisture from penetrating the cabin.

Noise Reduction

 Another advantage of high-quality weather stripping from Central Plastic and Rubber is noise abatement. Sealing spaces around doors and windows will muffle outdoor traffic sounds and help create a quieter environment for homes and businesses.
