Motorhome & Caravan Edge Trims with Top Seal
Edge trims with top seals are commonly used on motorhomes and caravans to protect edges and create a reliable watertight sealing solution. They are frequently used on the edge of gas lockers, habitation doors and other enclosures where the closing door closes down onto the top of the protruding panel edge. Replacing these seals when they begin to perish will help keep your motorhome or caravan warm and comfortable.
Manufactured as a metal reinforced edge trim with sponge rubber sealing bulb, these products are incredibly strong for their size but maintain a level of flexibility that allows the section to be bent around gradual corners. The metal spine within the edge trim strengthens the section and allows it to hold itself onto the panel edges without adhesive or other fixings. As the sponge top seal is manufactured from a closed-cell sponge rubber, it easily compresses to create a dependable barrier against water ingress.
To identify the best product for your motorhome or caravan, you will need to determine the size of the gap that needs to be sealed. We recommend compressing the sponge top seal by approximately a 30% to create a reliable sealing solution. This also minimises the chance of compression set and damaging the section with excessive over compression. It is also essential to measure the thickness where the edge trim will be situated.
