DDM now stocks Flexible Brush Seal! Made with flexible plastic, designed as an alternative to the original brush seal with a rigid steel support edge. In addition, several features make it an excellent option for your commercial doors and dock levelers.

  • The price is lower than that of the rigid seal, so you save on cost.
  • Flexible plastic allows the brush seal to roll up into a box. This reduces shipping costs.
  • It is available in rolls up to 200′ or 100′ for a three-inch brush, allowing for custom lengths.
  • Also, maintenance departments can easily store extra rolls for quick repairs.
  • Plastic support edge is thermally joined to the brush material, virtually eliminating fraying.
  • Unlike the rigid seals with steel edges, the plastic will not corrode or rust over time.

One minor drawback is that the product comes curled up in a box. Therefore, take extra care to ensure the material is straight when inserted into the retainer. Also, the 1 3/4″ brush is not available in the flexible seal.

    Hello Chuck, thank you for your question! The bound edge on all standard sized brush seals is 3/16″. For the large brush seals, the bound end is 5/16″. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at caleb@garagedoor.org
