Our wood stove door gasket replacements are precut for your convenience! We offer high temperature fiberglass rope and flat gasket braided fiberglass material for wood stove glass and doors. The material is graphite impregnated for strength and does not contain asbestos. The braided gasket that you find in the door channel of your glass stove door plays a critical role in the efficiency of your appliance. Over time, the constant opening and closing of your stove door wears down the strength of the seal, which can lead to heat loss and emission of combustible gases. Let us help you get the right product for your heat stove!
We offer a variety of options for you to choose from, including stove specific packages, and precut gaskets that are either self adhesive or include a 2 fluid ounce bottle of our super strong stove gasket adhesive! No matter the type of heating appliance you have, we can help you find the right gasket. Give our Fast Replacement Glass experts a call at 1-888-986-1535 with any questions you may have!
A tight seal will ensure good air circulation within the stove or fireplace, as well as prevent smoke or gas leakage. Not only is it important to the proper functioning of your heating appliance, but also your health and safety!
It ultimately depends on how often the stove is used. If it is fired up on a daily basis, Fast Replacement Glass advises frequent inspections and replacement of the gasket the moment the door doesn't compress the seal as tightly as it should. Otherwise, the gasket on your stove door should be checked on a regular basis for other signs of wear, such as fraying and unraveling. (Depending on your stove's manufacturer, it may be recommended that you replace the gasket every 12 months, regardless of its condition. See your stove or fireplace owner's manual for guidelines.)
The seal should be tight! So tight, that a dollar bill inserted between the door and stove cannot be pulled out when the door is closed. Fast Replacement Glass highly suggests performing the following test on all sides of the door:
Window gaskets don't undergo the same compression forces as door gaskets do. That being said, the seal around the window glass doesn't need to be replaced nearly as often. However, if you notice any loose, fraying, or unraveling material on your seal, we have an assortment of thin rope gaskets for this matter.
Fast Replacement Glass recommends reading your stove or fireplace owner's manual if you're unsure about which type and size (diameter) gasket you'll need for your door or window glass.
Let's assume the gasket information in your owner's manual is not readily available. Look at the old seal in your stove. You'll notice that it is, most likely set in a groove. To keep it in place, a cement was used. However, if it was a poor quality adhesive, this can cause early failure of the seal. Inferior products will deteriorate under the intense heat from the fire, eventually coming loose or even falling away from the door.
Fast Replacement Glass only offers professional grade, high temperature cements and adhesives that carry manufacturer names we know and trust. These high quality products are guaranteed to withstand thermal shock and last far longer than the factory seals and cements.
