Trim strips are extruded rubber products that are used to seal a surface from the elements. Typically, they’re used on door and windows to protect against cold air and water. Trim strips can also be used to provide a decorative effect or finish to the frame for a window or door. They’re also used on sheet metal and glass surfaces to protect against rough edges of the material. Trim strips are sometimes called a rubber seal strip, or known as rectangular seals, door strips, or rubber edge seals.
