Action Industries: Garage Door Seals Save Consumers Money

CLEVELAND, OH--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - Storm Shield, from Action Industries headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, is the premier garage door weatherseal threshold. Designed to save customers hundreds of dollars a year in heating and cooling costs, this high-quality threshold fills the gap underneath a garage door in order to block and repel wind, driven rain, snow, dust, dirt and leaves.

Studies have shown that a 1/8 inch gap around a standard 16 foot by 7 foot garage door can amount to hundreds of wasted dollars in heating and cooling expenses. In fact, that insignificant 1/8 inch gap is roughly equivalent to a 6 foot by 6 foot hole in the wall. 

Storm Shield is a revolutionary way to tightly seal off a garage from the outside. The exacting nature of the vinyl threshold forms a positive bond with the garage door's existing weather stripping. Storm Shield is easily mounted to a garage's foundation using the provided industrial-strength adhesive.

"We're proud that Storm Shield is leading the way in garage door thresholds," said Marc Calcaterra, Vice President of Operations, Action Industries. "Action Industries offers a quality weatherseal at a great value, helping consumers save money on heating and cooling bills."

Storm Shield is resistant to oil, gas, antifreeze and other common chemicals found in garages. Additionally, Storm Shield prevents infestation of most rodents, snakes and small pests. It will not crack, shatter or bulge with weather changes and remains flexible from -40 degrees to 150 degrees fahrenheit.

Storm Shield has a two-year residential warranty and comes with all pieces in an easy, do-it-yourself installation kit. To learn more and find out where you can purchase Storm Shield Garage Door Threshold, visit
