Window Seals

Post by clockwork64 » Fri, 23 Aug 2013, 5:49 pm

Hi all,

hope someone will be able to advise on where i can get new seals. It is for the side windows which seal against the wall. Are they part of the seal which hold the glass into the aluminium frame or is it separate?

Thanks

The seal fits into a slot in the window frame here

You can get new rubber seals that are similar but they are a loose fit in the slot. I used self adhesive hollow D section hollow tubing and stuck it to the frame.
