Let us supply you with a high quality wood stove door gasket replacement that is fabricated to form an airtight seal and withstand high temperatures. Over time and due to normal wear, a factory made gasket for wood stove glass or doors tend to unravel and fray. It's inevitable that you'll need to update this important feature on your stove door at some point. Our graphite impregnated fiberglass material reduces creosote build-up, resists sticking, and is tightly woven for a long lasting product!
Our flat gasket braided fiberglass is 5/8 inch thick, while our black rope gaskets are available in a number of different thickness, varying from 3/16" to 1" in diameter. All are sturdy, yet flexible enough to adapt to the corners of your stove's door and glass channels. Fast Replacement Glass will custom cut your product to length by the foot.
What is a wood stove gasket rope?
This type of wood stove gasket refers to a type of braided fiberglass seal that resembles a rope! Generally it 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 gasket rope is a critical piece of your stove system, assuring the burn is both efficient and safe. Our wood stove gaskets are guaranteed to be the correct diameter as the original manufacturer component.
What is wood stove flat gasket material used for?
This type of seal is also made from braided fiberglass, and many stove and insert manufacturers install this gasket of choice around the stove window. It is compact and thin (5/8 inch), offering an unobtrusive view of the flames through the glass. Just like the door rope gasket, it forms a tight seal and will not absorb water, making it mold and mildew resistant.
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.
