Title: Gaps in Magnetseal
Post by: peterk on January 22, 2008, 12:05:27 AM
I installed the first Magnetseal window today.  I have a question.  I ordered square acrylic panels and the window frame isn't exactly square.  So I have small gaps on a couple sides where I can see some of the L bracket.  Should I fill this in with weather stripping or is this unnecessary? 

Thanks,

Peter

Shouldn't be a problem unless there is air infiltratration.  Otherwise just use a little bathtub caulk to seal it off.

If the gap is large you will want to fill/seal it with a closed cell foam tape first.  Using tapes for soundproofing is discussed at   http://www.soundproofing.org/infopages/Tape.htm
The SSP Tape is best - it's 1/8" thick closed cell foam with self adhesive back.
