If you email us, to give us the best chance to help please attach a clear ‘End On’ photo of the seal you are trying to replace and a few general photos of the enclosure, door or screen that it goes on.

If you are at a complete loss, simply post us a small sample of your existing seal (only enough so that we can see the profile/shape of the seal) and include your details including a phone number and email address. We will then contact you the day it arrives with possible solutions.

Have a look at this simple tips below:


    • Your new seal needs to be a little bigger than the gap between the bottom edge of the door and the top edge of the bath or shower tray to ensure it creates a good seal.
    • Check the gaps at both ends of the screen as they can drop over time meaning that you may have a gap at one end far bigger than the other.
    • If you have a curved door you will need to use one of our pre curved seals. These are suitable for curves of up to 90mm (see pre curved seal page with how to measure this) If your curve measures over 90mm please contact us as we will be able to curve the seal to order for you.
    • When fitting the seals to glass doors you need to start at one end and push the seal up on to the glass. Do not try to slide the seal along the glass as this can damage it.
    • Please do not add any lubricant as this will mean the seal is likely to pop off again.
    • You can soften the seal slightly be leaving it in hot (not boiling) water for a few minutes before you fit it.
    • When looking for your new seal, try to pick based on your measurements, not the look of the seal. There are many different designs that all do the same job, but the most important thing is that it fits correctly and seals your gap.

    • Take your time to measure the channel that the seal slides in to. The channel may be bigger than the seal which will give you more options to pick from when looking for a replacement.
