20 Oct Product update: rubber seal range
Seals and glass flaps support our semi-frameless and frameless shower screen systems
Pivotech expanded our range of PVC seals and glass flaps to complement our popular ranges of semi-frameless and frameless shower screen systems and to meet our customers’ growing needs.
The co-extruded shower seals deflect and redirect water back into the shower tray, keeping the bathroom cleaner by discouraging drips. Pivotech seals may also help with the smooth operation of the door and air infiltration.
Co-extruded shower seals range
Pivotech’s commitment to independent research and development ensures the Pivotech shower system range continues to evolve and our customers always receive the best products. Our extended range of rubber seals and glass flaps includes 10mm and 6mm sizes.
The Pivotech semi-frameless and frameless suites of shower enclosures and shower systems incorporate the highest quality materials with expert manufacturing and stylish design. We offer value and elegance for Australian home owners.
To keep seals looking great and doing their job, they need to be regularly cleaned.
Tips for cleaning your co-extruded shower seals
The shower screen’s rubber seal prevents water from leaking onto the bathroom floor, but its seal can trap soap, detergents and bacteria. It’s important to regularly clean the rubber seals to prevent mould and mildew from flourishing. Pivotech does not recommend use of harsh chemicals as they can pit and degrade the integrity of the seal. Instead, try a little baking soda, a little detergent, some vinegar and a bit of elbow grease.
Cleaning with baking soda:
- Mix a cup of baking soda with 2 tablespoons of mild liquid soap or dish washing liquid. Add 2 cups of hot water and stir.
- Use an old, soft toothbrush to apply the solution to the rubber seal and scrub. Let it sit for 15 minutes.
- Rinse the seal with plenty of warm water to remove all of the solution.
Cleaning with vinegar:
- Mix a cup of cleaning vinegar with a cup water in a spray bottle. Add 1 teaspoon of mild liquid soap or dishwashing liquid.
- Spray the seal with the vinegar mixture and let it sit for 15 minutes.
- Use an old, soft toothbrush to scrub the seal, respraying each section again just before scrubbing.
- Rinse the seal completely with warm water.
