Weather Stop Garage Door Insulation Kit Fitting Instructions

Preparation

Brush the inside of the garage door and wipe the surface of the garage door with a clean cloth to remove any dust, oil or grease. This is vital to effective fitting. Recommended fitting temperature over +5°C.

Tools Required

  • Tape measure
  • Sharp scissors
  • Pencil or marker pen
  • Ruler

Step 1

Fitting Step One
Using a brush, remove all dust and dirt from the back of the garage door.  Wipe clean with a cloth as required.

Step 2

Fitting Step Two
Starting from the right side of the garage door, measure 714mm from the bottom of the door.  Make a mark with a pen on the door/edge or bracing.  Repeat this process in the centre and on the left of the garage door.

Step 3

Fitting Step Three
Place the double-sided adhesive pads in the centre of the markings.  Then continue to distribute the adhesive pads evenyl (use approximately 15 pads) across the bottom third of the garage door.  Press down firmly on the pads to ensure a good bond.  This will form the adhesive between the insulation and the garage door. NB: Do not remove the backing paper from the pads at this point.

Step 4

Fitting Step Four
Using a tape measure, measure the width of the door.  Note this measurement.

Step 5

Fitting Step Five
With a pen, mark the previously noted measurement on the insulation material.  Then, using the scissors, cut the insulation to size.

Remove the backing paper from the foam pads.  Working from one side, secure the insulation material to the pads.  Ensure the insulation material is tort when bonding it to the pads.

Step 7

Fitting Step seven
If appropriate, remove any fixed cables prior to fitting the insulation.

Step 8

Fitting Step eight
Hold the insulation up to the door.  For garage doors with protruding latches, draw the shape that is needed to be cut out of the insulation material.

With scissors, cut the previously drawn shapes of the latch/cables. Tip: To replicate, fold the insulation material in half, trace the shape on the other side and cut the shape out with the scissors.

To finish, apply the aluminium foil tape across the two joins on the insulation material.

Step 11

Fitting Step eleven
Apply the aluminium tape along the side and top edges of the door.  Over-hang half of the tape and then wrap the tape over the edge of the garage door to create an effective seal and a neat finish.
