Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jasper99 Weatherproof Seal
Had a big gap (25mm) at the base of my garage door. As a result the garage was getting damp and leaves and dust were blowing in. Added this weather strip (with Screwfix Prodrive Flange Self-Tappers 8 x Â½ using an Erbauer #3 HSS Drill Bit) and the results were a weatherproof seal that withstood the best the bank holiday rain could throw at it. Success!!
I would definitely recommend this product.

Good product, quite a lot cheaper than on line products from other suppliers.
Easy to cut and fit.
Could do with being supplied with self tapping screws, but a minor moan.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by DanielJ Some things to consider...
Like other reviewers, I had a problem with leaf litter blowing in under my glass fibre up-and-over garage doors. I Fixed this strip to the lower inside edge of the doors using 8 x 1/2" self-tapping screws. The pre-drilled fixing holes in the aluminium strips are at approximately 250 mm centres (Although they vary!). I drilled additional holes between these to strengthen the fixing to the door.
The rubber insert is fine for keeping leaf litter out of the garage. However, I wouldn't expect it to make a waterproof seal, unless your floor is very flat and level: the rubber insert is too stiff for that.
Make sure you mount the strip high enough to allow the rubber insert space to "flip over" as the door starts to open. If you install it too close to the floor, it will make the door difficult to open. If your door is motorised, this could cause the overload to trip out.

I read the reviews for this which were all good but I was surprised to discover that the Aluminium Strip is in two pieces which makes it more difficult to fit. The rubber is a continuous strip, so the seal is good, but there's no mention in the ad. that the aluminium isn't.. Just thought you all ought to know...
