Over time and due to normal wear, factory-made gaskets tend to unravel or even fray. It's inevitable that you'll need to update this important feature on your stove door at some point. Let us supply you with a high-quality replacement gasket that is fabricated to form an airtight seal and withstand high temperatures. The graphite-impregnated fiberglass material reduces creosote build-up, resists sticking, and is tightly woven for a long lasting product!
Our black rope gaskets are available in a number of different thickness, varying from 3/16" to 1" in diameter. They are sturdy, yet flexible enough to adapt to the corners of your stove's door glass. Fast Replacement Glass will custom-cut it to your desired length by the foot. This gasket will need to be bonded with high-temperature cement (we recommend A.W. Perkins® 2000° F cement) for a reliable seal!
What is a wood stove rope gasket?
A wood stove gasket refers to a type of fiberglass gasket seal that resembles a rope! Generally the rope gasket is cemented to the back of your stove door. When the door is closed, the rope gasket is compressed against the stove body, making an air tight seal. A properly installed rope gasket is a critical piece of your stove system, ensuring the burn is both efficient and safe. Our wood stove gaskets are guaranteed to be the correct diameter as the original manufacturer component. There are also flat fiberglass gaskets that are mainly used to seal replacement fireplace glass.
How do I attach a wood stove door gasket?
Most wood stoves require a rope gasket that will be cemented directly to the back of the door. Once your stove is completely cool, you can remove the old gasket seal, making sure to scrape off excess cement, ash, and buildup. When the wood stove gasket is removed and the mounting surface free of debris, you can begin installing the replacement. Measure out how much gasket you need, making sure to not cut it too long or too short. "Dry fit" the gasket onto the back of the wood stove door, making sure it fits. If you are sure it will work, apply cement or adhesive to the gasket and stick it onto the mounting surface. Close the door so that the gasket is held in place under pressure. Do not disturb the door until the cement or adhesive curing time has been reached.
Can I buy your wood stove gasket by the spool?
Absolutely! Although we primarily sell wood stove gasket by the foot, we also have spools available. This is handy if you want to replace gaskets often or just have enough for a lifetime supply. Spools are available in a variety of footages. Their length depends on the diameter of the gasket itself. If you would like to buy fiberglass gasket by the spool, please give Fast Replacement Glass a call at 1-888-986-1535!
