Prevent Freeze-Up Around Your Overhead Doors

As winter approaches, it’s time to address the problem of freeze-up around the bottom of your overhead garage or shop doors.

The gap at the bottom of a door allows snow and water to infiltrate, potentially causing an ice build-up that can be dangerous to your family, employees or customers.

This is an unnecessary hazard that can be avoided by making sure you have a firm seal at the bottom (and sides) of your doors.

It’s time for you to stop that infiltration – and there are two great products that will do just that. 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 your poorly sealed overhead door. In a broader sense, snirt also can be water/rain, leaves, bugs, mice, snow, grime and even snakes moving under your door or through the sides. Heat loss is also a major concern.

Check out the gap on your current overhead door 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. 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 allow you to create a cleaner and safer indoor area. It also helps you reduce energy bills and provide a more comfortable space by keeping out the cold in winter and the heat in summer.

The BottomSealer, along with the SideSealer (and TopSealer), will close up your overhead and other outside doors just like you 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.

And now there are additional models available that seal infiltration gaps of up to 4 inches. This may especially apply to larger applications, such as industrial buildings or airplane hangars. Whatever your situation, it is a smart move to eliminate potential injuries from unwanted freeze-up around your doors.

And now for some additional great news – you can choose from among several colors to match your door color or trim.

The BottomSealer is available in black, white or gray. The SideSealer and TopSealer now come in a variety of colors, including red, dark brown, charcoal, sand, green, gray, brown, black, white and tan.
