The Aquamac 21 is a high performance window and door seal by Schlegel. A very effective seal which reduces draughts to a minimum. Aquamac 21 compresses to seal against air and water penetration with excellent memory, returning to its original shape after compression.  Non shrinking, even in extreme weather, it is also UV stable.

Installation Instructions:

The seal is a simple push fit into the groove and fits alongside the bead or overlap of the window. A roller can be used to roll the seal into the groove to aid insertion. Please make sure not to damage the seal while doing this.

1. Mark the timber beading for cutting. Make sure the “V” of the flipper faces away from the external edge of the window or door (otherwise water can collect in the “V”) and that the top edge is flush to the top of the beading.
2. Determine the gap size and whether the seal is for a rebated fit or flush fit
3. Cut a channel for the foot (see above for groove depth).
4. Measure the size of the seal required and cut to the required length, ensuring
that it is mitred in the corners.
5. Make sure the surface is clean and dry and free from any surface oils, dirt or sawdust etc.
6. Push fit the foot into the routed groove, making sure it is a good tight fit.
7. Make sure the flipper doesn’t fit too proud of the beading otherwise the seal will fail. Similarly, make sure it isn’t lower than the beading otherwise water may collect in the gap.
8. Test the window to make sure there is a smooth opening and closing movement.
