It’s not unusual for a utility building or shop to have an outmoded and ineffective overhead door sealing system.
The result is air infiltration that creates problems in both comfort and expense.
Owners and operators of rural electric utilities, city utilities, cable television firms and telephone companies owe it to their stockholders, customers and employees to take steps to create more comfortable working conditions and a stronger bottom line.
t’s time for you to stop infiltration around those overhead doors – and there are two great products that will do just that. Keeping out air movement and various items and critters is healthy and saves money.
To put it another way — It’s time to Stop The Snirt! Okay, first of all, what is snirt? Traditionally, it is the unsightly and messy combination of snow and dirt that can blow underneath or through the sides of a poorly-sealed overhead door. In a broader sense, snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under the door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern.
Check out the gap on any current overhead doors to get an idea of the problem you are dealing with. Did you know that drafts can bring dirt, snow, ice, mud, plus heat and cooling loss through a space of 1/32nd of an inch? Bugs and spiders can creep through a space of only 1/16th of an inch. Mice can enter your garage area through a space the size of a pencil (and it’s, of course, very important to keep rodents away from city and county vehicles). It’s time to put a stop to all that infiltration.
With our revolutionary SnirtStopper you can indeed Stop The Snirt! The SnirtStopper system features two revolutionary products — the BottomSealer and SideSealer — to create a cleaner and safer indoor area. By blocking out rodents and other varmints, it keeps disease away and makes for a better working atmosphere for employees. Additionally, the BottomSealer does not freeze to the ground like current sealers on the market. This eliminates the risk of employees slipping on the floor and also helps to provide timely service to customers during winter months.
The system also helps reduce energy bills and provide a more comfortable space by keeping out the cold in winter and the heat in summer. As an example, in one large Midwest building with multiple overhead doors, the monthly heating cost was just over $1,500. After installing new seals on all the doors, the bill was reduced to $689. The new low heating cost easily paid for the product within a month.
The BottomSealer, along with the SideSealer (and TopSealer), will close up overhead and other outside doors just like you would seal up the front door of your home. Now is the time to move past that old overhead door stripping that doesn’t work
The BottomSealer is self-adjusting and eliminates gaps of up to two inches – and you don’t have to replace your current seal. The Kevlar-reinforced material will not wear out and mice, along with other critters, will not chew through it!
The system is easy to install and all needed hardware is included. These products will pay for themselves with the amount of energy you will save. It will prevent heat loss in the winter and keep your area cooler in the summer.
