 TOP 5 MISTAKES 
filter_1

Fit to mask a gap without the seal to butt up against to make a complete seal. The door might look better but it does not fix the draught.

filter_2
Buying an RP17 when you need something more robust, longer lasting and aesthetically pleasing.
filter_3
Fitting a sweep seal that will interfere with floor coverings — typically the floor runner in a hallway (use a RP3 or RP35 instead).
filter_4

Use a sweep seal where the floor rises up as the door opens. The sweep seal with drag on the ground, making for an unpleasant “door experience”.

filter_5
Using a sweep seal on a sliding door — you need a brush!
