How to tell the difference between hard & soft rope.

This is Standard Rope (sometimes known as hard rope) and is only ever used around the edge of the stove door never behind the glass. If you squeeze it gently it doesnt compress much and has a firm feel due to the tight weave.

To check the size of the rope you require pull away a little of your existing rope from your stove door and form it back into a round shape then put a rule across it to check the diameter. Then choose "Rope & Kits" on our website and select "Standard Rope" and select the size you require.

 

This is Soft Rope. It is sometimes used for the edge of the stove door and for behind the glass. If you squeeze it gently it will compress to about a third of its size.

If your stove door requires soft rope behind the glass there will be a groove into which the soft rope will fit. If there is no groove you will need Ceramic Paper.

To check the size of rope you require pull away a little of your existing rope from your stove door and form it back into a round shape then put a rule across it to check the diameter. Then choose "Rope & Kits" on our website and select "Soft Rope" and select the size you require.

 

 

This is Ceramic Paper. It is only ever used behind the glass. It is very easy to cut and is either 6mm wide (1/4") or 10mm wide (3/8") and is about 3mm (1/8") thick. If your stove is fitted with this simply remove all traces of existing Ceramic Paper. Cut the new Ceramic Paper to size and lay this in the recess where your glass will sit held in place with a couple of dabs of high temperature adhesive. Lay your glass on top and replace your clips and screws. Remember not to overtighten.

 

 

This is Self Adhesive Flat Rope Seal. 12mm(1/2") wide and is quite thin. Fairly rare and only ever used behind the glass for bridging wider gaps.
