The Franco Belge door glass seal is a soft self adhesive soft rope that sticks to the casting of the door and then once fixed the glass simply presses up against the seal to ensure a perfect seal between the glass and the body of the stove.
Please Note: Sometimes in transit the adhisive may appear to have come away from the rope. Simply press tape back to the rope and the adhesive will adhere again. Once the rope is installed and heated the glue will set strong.
Offer the purchase of or include heat resistant tape with domestic purchases of rope.
Management Response: Hello, Thank you for leaving the review. Due to the type of weave end sealing tape is not require with this rope. As its self adhesive if you put tape around the ends it would no longer stick to the stove.
