Gaps along your door frame is an inevitable pitfall in all soundproofing projects which can be avoided by applying a quality door seal. This convenient, self-adhesive, silicone teardrop door seal is a simple and cost effective way of  creating an airtight seal along the perimeter of your door frame. Perfect for aesthetically sensitive doors or door frames, this non-invasive soundproof gasket will satisfy your basic soundproofing needs.

Available in multiple colors and sizes and easy to cut to size and install, this patented "Compres-O-Matic" system is very useful especially when you're looking to avoid a more complicated and messy installation process.

  • Material: Made of high quality silicone rubber available in many colors. Silicone is resistant to extreme environments and temperatures. It does not become brittle in the very cold, nor soft in the heat. Material has excellent resistance to sunlight, weather, ozone, oxidation, water and flames.
  • Backing: 3M Self-adhesive peel and stick backing. Easy to install, no screws or tools necessary.
  • Options: This product can also be purchased with an Anti-Ligature Feature which prevents it from being used for anything other than its intended purpose and will fall apart when removed from application.

Comments about Door Seal - Self Adhesive Teardrop:
High quality piece of weatherstripping and the adhesive seems to be very strong. I used it on our Master Bedroom door and on our bathroom door. This looks like it will last a long time and not start falling apart like many other cheap foams.

Comments about Door Seal - Self Adhesive Teardrop:
We live in a condo with some ambient noise from the hallway. The original door seals did not work and I had installed some other products - but they did not help. This product was simple to install - peel, stick, done! Also, it has cut down the ambient noise dramatically. The only other guidance I would give is to not be afraid to use the larger size. I purchased both a smaller and larger strip - the larger one worked best to isnure a good seal.

Q&A

Customers Questions and Answers

1) Mimi: Thank you very much for your quick reply. I think both the door seal (self-adhesive teardrop and self-adhesive batwing) could work. I am still concerned about the depth of both products. As indicated in my initial email, I had temporarily installed a weather-strip of 0.3175" thickness and my door barely closes. Would I have a similar issue with either the teardrop or the batwing? The website only provides the width of the teardrop product (0.375"). Thanks Mimi

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Mimi, You should be OK with the dear drop as that has a lot more compression than the weatherstrip you bought.

2) Andrew K: Hi, I'm interested in the "self adhesive teardrop" door seal. I'm wondering what gap size the seal is designed for? I've tried installing weather strip-type seals but I've had issues where some gaps are filled but others are not (uneven gap size along the door). Also, how does this door seal compare quantitatively in sound reduction with the door gasket set? Thanks!

Trademark Soundproofing Reply:

Hi Andrew. Designed for 1/4" gaps. The door gasket will cover uneven gaps ar it is installed on the stop moulding and the door closes onto it. Additionally it is a heavier rubber. Thank You.

3) beth : Is this door seal different from regular weatherstripping? I live in a duplex with shared walls and hear the neighbor's doors slamming at night. I want it to dampen the noise of the doors closing. Would this have an advantage over regular weather stripping for that purpose?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply:

Hi Beth, This weather stripping allows for more compression and retains it's shape over time which allows for a longer lasting tight seal to your door which in turn seals the gaps at the door perimeters from sound leaks. However you can still have sound coming in through the door itself through your walls, floors ceilings etc. You seem to have a vibration issue which is quite difficult to deal with. You can start by sealing the door however you may need to treat your walls as well. A good place to start is by reading this article on Soundproofing walls. Thank You

4) Rick L: Is this product 100% silicon. Will it stand up to minus 100 degrees F?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Rick, It is and the the service temperature range is minus 75 degrees F.

5) Jenn : Good morning, I am looking for substitute for Norsound NOR788 which was spec'd out for my project. Let me know what will be the typical lead time for your brown Door Seal - Self Adhesive Teardrop. Thank you.

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Jenn, That is a stock item and usually ships within 24 hours.

6) Sher: If I use tear drop on the header and 2 sides of my door, what do you recommend for soundproofing the floor facing side of my door?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply:

Hi Sher. Recommend getting an Automatic Door Bottom.

7) Debbie K: Hi... I like the looks of your door seal-self adhesive acoustic weather stripping that I want to use for my new home built voice over studio, however, I am disappointed at the shipping cost! For a 17 foot strip of your material, shipping is an additional 50% of the cost of the product! Any chance you can waive shipping charges for a new customer??

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Debbie. We ship FedEx Ground. Orders over $75.00 ship free.

8) Merritt F: What determines whether I order .5" or .375" width?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: The amount of a "gap" that you have

9) Howard D: Is the Door Seal-self adhesive teardrop available in a 5/16-3/8 inch height?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: It is only available in the 2 sizes shown here. Custom size extrusion is available for very large orders (over 5,000 feet).

10) Ralph H: Based on the drop down selection box it would appear that the brown is no longer available? Will the brown be available in the future?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Hi Ralph. That should be available next week. Give us a call on Monday to check. Thank you.

11) Scott K: What is the actual soundproof rating on the 0.5" self-adhesive silicone door seal?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply:

Hi Scott. There is no rating for this product. FYI on all door seals, there is no rating on the actual seal, rather they are tested as to how well they can retain the STC rating of the door. So the first step is to know what STC rating your door has. You can have the best seal in the world but if the door is a hollow wood door you will still hear everything right through the door. Usually only heavy duty adjustable seals are tested like this heavy duty door gasket and heavy duty automatic door bottom. For the others it is just a matter of getting a good tight seal, which this product does a very good job at compared to most other self adhesive seals.

12) Ike H: I have a 2006 Hummer H3. I would like to use your product to provide a tight wind-noise and weatherproof/waterproof perimeter seal for my vehicle's sunroof. I would apply the door seal on the forward half of the sunroof's opening, adhered to the metal frame. Theoretically, the sunroof's sliding window would press up against the seal when the sunroof is closed. I believe that the door seal is flexible enough to compress, but will this compression cause it to become brittle and crack? Am I wrong to think that this product can be used for exterior applications?

Trademark Soundproofing Reply: Being that this is a pure silicone material it should not become brittle and crack (which is a characteristic of vinyl materials).
