In this example, the door uses a 12mm round fibreglass rope as a door seal, and a 12mm flat self adhesive gasket as a glass seal.
3.Remove the old seals.
4.Clean the surface and remove any rope and adhesive residue.
Applying the Self Adhesive Flat Tape
5.Peel the backing from the tape up to about 15cm.
6.Press the tape into place and secure the end until you have applied the first section.
7.Peel off the next section of backing and work your way around the frame until you get back to where you started.
8.Using a knife, or scissors, cut away the excess tape so that the two ends meet without leaving a gap.
9.Measure out the rope before applying adhesive; start from the bottom centre and lightly press the rope into the groove.
Use care not to stretch the rope; soft ropes tend to stretch more than standard ropes.
10.When you have returned to your starting point, cut the rope so that the ends meet without leaving a gap.
Frayed ends can be tidied up using stove end sealing tape.
11.Apply the adhesive all the way around the rope groove
12.You can now apply the prepared rope - starting from the bottom, work your way around.
13.Work your way round again ensuring the rope is pressed well down into the groove.
14.Remove the new replacement glass panel from its packaging.
15.Carefully place the panel into the aperture.
Refitting the retention clips and screws
If you start at top left, then you should move diametrically opposite to bottom right.

Allthough the glass is heat resistant, it is not toughened.
DO NOT - Over tighten retention clip screws. Finger tight is enough.
DO NOT - Use fire cement or silicone to seal the glass.
