Magnetic seal question
« on: April 04, 2019, 05:46:00 PM »

Hi, I posted this on another forum page and am reposting here in case I put it in the wrong place.  I have learned a lot from this forum and really appreciate everyone's knowledge.  I am convinced that a magnetic interior storm window is the right choice for me.  The only question I have is whether a magnet-to-steel seal is better than a magnet-to-magnet seal.  I know the Magnaseal uses a magnet-steel seal, but I saw another product that uses a magnet-magnet seal.  And I have read that magnet-magnet connections are generally stronger than magnet-steel connections given the same magnet.  So is there a functional or performance reason to go with a magnet-steel seal rather than a magnet-magnet seal?  Thanks!

That should work, the only problem I see is the adhesive not sticking to drywall or wood very well.

Thanks, that's a good point.  I can screw in the metal frame but have to rely on adhesive if I use a magnet on the wall.
