Frequently Asked Questions
Q) Can I cut the brush strip to size myself?
A) All aluminium sections can be cut to length using a fine tooth saw.
It is most important that the galvanised steel channel which houses the nylon brush strip filaments (cam strip) is then sealed to avoid filament loss - this can be accomplished by cutting using pliers or bolt cutters to seal; i.e. by pinching the end of the channel with pliers or wire cutters this will stop the loss of any of the bristles if done correctly.
Q) What size length can I order?
A) Standard Sizes held in stock are 2.0m, 2.5m and 3.0m lengths. We can also cut to your specified length if you would like, but a surcharge is applied. Contact us with your specific measurements.
Q) Can I buy the brush strip only?
A) Absolutely, Formseal can supply both parts separately. It is, however, more cost effective to purchase them complete and assembled as opposed to two separate piece parts. If you require brush only look at our Camstrip section.
Q) I have a problem with mice getting into my garage, what would be the best solution?
A) First and foremost, we recommend that you eliminate the source of food supply (where possible). It is important that you eradicate existing visitors and by using our brush strip, this will deter new ones from entering your building.
Prevention is better than cure.
