Bulb trim seals keep out air, water, dust, and noise. They are used in doors with radiused corners and consist of a compressible bulb and a solid retainer section. When the door is closed, the bulb is compressed to create a seal between the door and the jam. The trim or solid retainer section installs over the edge of the door and combines a finished appearance with edge protection. Applications for bulb trim seals include mobile equipment and enclosures for electronics and machinery.
