Tubular Rubber, Vinyl, or Silicone

Tubular rubber, vinyl, or silicone is an effective air barrier; versions made of a narrow sponge rubber or vinyl tubing come attached to a wood or metal mounting strip. Silicone types are usually inserted into milled grooves.

Where It Goes

How to Install It
Peel and stick, or fasten with screws through slot holes; silicone seals are pressed into a channel you create with a router.
