How to Install Edge Trim

Posted July 20, 2019 10:03 AM by Doug Sharpe

Edge trim protects exposed edges and the people who come into contact with them. In addition to sealing and insulation, edge trim provides a finished appearance to surfaces such as the metal doors on vehicles, machinery, and equipment. Choosing the right type of edge trim for your application is important, but you’ll also need to install these seals with care. Otherwise, edge trim can buckle or separate.

In this article, you’ll learn how to select edge trim based on dimensions and material requirements. You’ll also learn some best practices for cutting trim seals, as edge trim is also known. You can buy lengths in bulk and cut them yourself, or you can buy edge trim that’s been cut-to-size for your application. Either way, you’ll need to install edge trim by pressing the seal onto the edge.

I'm going to make a guess that edge trim is installed by placing the trim onto the edge?
