tesamoll® P-Profile is a self-adhesive window seal made for insulating windows. It is a durable wind stopper able to seal even larger gaps in older windows.
In course of time, window frames develop tolerances and lose their ability to reliably block cold air when heavy gusts of wind hit against them. tesamoll® P-Profile is a self-adhesive weatherstrip especially made to close those hidden gaps typical of older windows. It serves as an effective wind stopper that simply needs to be stuck along the window frame and provides your windows with a long lasting sealing effect that can save up to 35% of your energy costs. Designed for easy DIY insulating, tesamoll® P-Profile is guaranteed to work perfectly for at least 8 years.
tesamoll® sealing profiles in different profiles and materials. The flexible and self-adhesive strips are designed to seal gaps of various sizes in windows and doors.
During hot weather, tesamoll® sealing profiles prevent hot outside air from coming in and keeps cool air inside the house. During cold and stormy weather, tesamoll® avoids any cold drafts and keeps heated air inside the house. Doing so, tesamoll® helps to save energy and can reduce energy costs by up to 40%.
If it takes very long to heat up a room, chances are that the doors and/or windows are not sufficiently tight. Another indicator are uncomfortably cold areas in front of doors or windows. If the room is equipped with an air condition, gaps in the windows and/or doors will allow cool air to escape and it will take more time to cool down the room.
There is a simple way to discover undesirable gaps between window and window frame: Hold a lit candle at various positions close to the window frame. If the flame of the candle flutters a lot, there are definitely wide gaps that allow an exchange of air. If it flutters just a little, the gaps are still wide enough to affect the room temperature. If it flutters only slightly, but it feels considerably cooler close to the window, there are at least small gaps to prevent economic heating or air conditioning.
Try to test the situation at different positions of the window frame. In this way you get a good idea of where the trouble spots are and are able to address it with a suitable self-adhesive tesamoll® sealing profile. If you discover different gap sizes, use tesamoll® STANDARD or tesamoll® Premium flexible. These products are able to adapt to a wide range of gap sizes.
A candle will already give you a good idea of the existence of gaps between window and frame. If you want to determine the exact size of the gaps, proceed as follows:
Insert a small strip of plasticine along the window frame. Close the window and open it again. The thickness of the plasticine will show you exactly how wide the gap is at various positions.
tesamoll® sealing profiles are placed inside the window frame and do not have any visual effect on the windows appearance. However, you should select the right type of profile. If the sealing profile is too wide, you will not be able to close the window.
Hidden gaps between window frame and window sash will prevent the window from effectively serving its function to separate the inside air from the outside air. Especially larger gaps will considerably drive up the costs for heating in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. The tesamoll® P-Profile rubber seal was developed to seal such gaps in order to prevent any exchange of air. They feature a special hollow profile and are designed to reliably fill gaps between 2 and 5 mm. The benefits are obvious: no uncomfortable cold draft, no loss of heat, no excessive energy costs. Experience shows that the resulting energy savings can be up to 35%.
WHAT YOU NEED:
- Household detergent
- Tape measure
- tesamoll® CLASSIC P-Profile rubber seal
CAUTION! Detergents with beading effect may limit the performance of the adhesive coating.
If the window frame already features an adhesive sealing, it needs to be removed before attaching any tesamoll® sealing profile. If the window has a window sash with featuring a trapped rubber sealing, the tesamoll® sealing profile should be attached to the window frame in a way that it gets in direct contact with this rubber sealing.
In order to gain maximum adhesion, the surface of the window frame should be free from dust, dirt and other substances which might have accumulated in course of time.
Use any standard glass cleanser to clean the surface where you intend to stick the tesamoll® sealing profile.
Please note that the outside temperature should not be lower than +10°C while you attach any tesamoll® sealing profile. A clean surface and a suitable ambient temperature will ensure good and long-lasting adherence.
tesamoll® sealing profiles made of either silicone or rubber can be removed anytime by simply pulling them off the window frame. Any remaining residues of the adhesive material can be removed with a standard household cleaning detergent.
After pulling off a worn tesamoll® sealing profile, any remaining residues of the adhesive material can be removed with a standard household cleaning detergent.
tesamoll® sealing profiles come in four qualities with distinctive advantages:
Silicone-based tesamoll® sealing profiles are extremely weather proof and temperature resistant. They come with a 15 year limited guarantee for durability.
Rubber-based tesamoll® a sealing profiles are weather resistant and water repellant. They are backed by an 8 year limited warranty.
tesamoll® sealing profiles made of closed cell foam are highly flexible and adjust to just about any window gap. Their durability is guaranteed for at least 4 years.
tesamoll® sealing profiles made of open cell foam are the preferred choice for indoor use, since they are not weather resistant. They are highly flexible to match a variety of gaps and offer a durability of at least 2 years.
tesamoll® sealing profiles match nearly all types of windows, as well as room doors or cabinet doors. They are not suitable for sliding doors or windows. tesamoll® sealing profiles designed for small gap sizes are generally used for aluminum or plastic windows, while those designed for bigger gap sizes usually match wooden windows.
tesamoll® sealing profiles are designed to seal gaps between window frame and window sash. For this purpose they need to be attached inside the profile of the window frame.
If a window does not close anymore after a tesamoll® sealing profile was attached to the window frame, you most likely used a profile which is too wide. The only solution is to remove the seal and replace it by a smaller size.
All tesamoll® sealing profiles are resistant against temperatures between -50°C and +60°C. This makes them an ideal sealing solution for extremely hot days as well as extremely cold winter nights.
