Extruded door seals are used to prevent water and air infiltration in residential and commercial doors and to prevent energy loss and damage caused by the elements. They are produced as rubber profiles in standard and custom sizes, and then fabricated into rubber gaskets that provide sealing and insulation. Depending on the application, rubber door extrusions are sometimes called bulb seals, door gaskets, bulb gaskets, weather stripping, weather stripping, or shower seals.
