Anyone know of a universal gasket for a UPVC door frame, I have trawled the internet to find one as I cannot find an exact replacement.

FE thanks for the link but its not there, The door is 28 years old and I have managed to find a universal lock and roller set for it, also a door gasket.

However the roller locks are not available or the frame seal/gasket as I have been in touch with the original supplier.

They said the lock wasn't available also, but I have found it by the same manufacture under a different code number for £70 inc pp. Trouble is I had two doors fitted at the same time and both could do with gaskets etc. as they are no longer air tight.

Maybe two new doors is the way to go.

Screwfix do a universal seal for UPVC doors and windows - it's called Stormguard and is very easy to fit.

As far as locks are concerned, the problem shouldn't be so difficult, you can get all kinds of locks for UPVC doors. Take a look at this

That's a very useful link FE! I have been searching for a decent after market lock specialist for a while now.

Morning FE the links do show the door seal, and the lock/latch, I am looking for. The latch is cheaper than the one I found.

However its the door (frame seal) thats the problem, I may have to fit an outdoor seal of the ridged type that come in three sections, and find a different way to seal the bottom of the door.

Thanks for your time and links in helping me out.

Thanks FE still not there, I have just been to the original supplier last time I contacted them was by phone.

Having a word face to face at the factory they said they were sorry but are unable to get the frame gasket, and that times and gaskets have changed.

My doors are out of the ten year guarantee, and fitting thats twenty years. Thanks again for all your help.

I will keep looking or try to come up with a new idea for a gasket.
