At Mighton we stock a large range of plastic and primed timber weatherstripping, staff and parting bead products that are ideal when installing, refurbishing or repairing timber sash and casement windows. Our range includes parting beads, staff beads, brush seals, brush carriers, weatherstripping and the usual furnature and sash pulleys.
For added convenience, drawings of all section sizes are available to view or download on each individual product page.
Our Ecobrush is a cost effective and easy way to weatherproof your home. Simply peel and stick! Ecobrush is ideal for both weather-proofing and taking the rattle out of your sash windows as it can be used at the meeting rail as well as on the top and bottom of the sashes.
4. PVC Meeting Rail Interlock Seal
Our PVC Meeting Rail Interlock will help minimise draught and provide a positive seal. It comes with Mighton’s 5.5mm bruspile (supplied loose). This product is perfect for sash window renovation or new build work and can be used in conjunction with our other weatherproofing products.
Both the rail and the brush pile are UV stable, water repellent and weather resistant.
5. PVC Parting Bead
Our one piece Parting Bead weatherstrips both top and bottom sashes. It looks exactly like traditional Parting Bead, the fins are almost undetectable when installed. Due to it being made from UV-Stabilised PVC it will never rot and is unaffected by accidental contact with paint. It is available in white and comes in two sizes ‘Normal’ or ‘Wide’. PVC Parting Bead can be used in new work or refurbishment jobs.
