Probably more than any nation, the UK is full of caravan and motorhome enthusiasts. It seems we love nothing more than getting out on the open road and exploring what the world has to offer. Nearly half a million of us set out each year in a wide variety of caravans both old and new.
Of course, caravans of any age need careful maintenance to keep them in tip-top condition. If you’ve noticed that your Herzim strips are coming loose or have degraded, it may be time to replace them. It’s important to do this before you set out on the road.
The good news is that the team at COH Baines are here to help. As one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of rubber extrusions of all types, we’ve got all the bases covered if you’re a caravan or motorhome owner.
What Are Herzim Strips?
Herzim strips fit around areas like your doors and offer valuable protection from the elements as well as hiding the underlying screws and attachments. Once they get damaged, like many seals and strips it can mean the underlying structure becomes weathered and may begin to rust.
Once you notice that your caravan or motorhome Herzim strip needs replacing, the good news is that it’s not a difficult job and anyone with a modicum of DIY skill can do it. Removal of the old strip and installation of the new one should take no more than 30 minutes at most. A new Herzim strip not only looks good it should provide many more years of protection.
Whether you have an old or new caravan or motorhome, it’s worth doing simple checks of the strips and seals before you set out on the road. It can be difficult to repair or replace damaged strips when you are in the middle of nowhere.
