Renovating your home or undertaking a construction project? One crucial aspect is ensuring that your window sills are properly sealed to prevent water ingress and enhance insulation. At AluVensterbanken.be, we offer high-quality sealing lips that are perfect for this job. In this guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to install sealing lips on your aluminum window sills.

Sealing lips play a vital role in waterproofing and securing the installation of your aluminum window sills. They are placed on the screw side of the window sill, between the screw side and the window profile. Here’s why they are essential:

  • Waterproofing: Prevents water from penetrating into the structure, protecting your home from moisture damage.
  • Insulation: Improves thermal insulation around the window area, contributing to energy efficiency.
  • Durability: Made from robust materials that can withstand various weather conditions.
