For Immediate Release
BUFFALO GROVE, ILL., (April 24, 2022) – Xcluder®, the world’s leading provider of rodent exclusion products and expertise, has expanded its collection of rodent-proofing tools with the launch of the Xcluder Auto Slide Kit for Automatic Entry Doors. Designed to protect the automatic entry doors for grocery and other retail stores, the Auto Slide Kit is the latest addition to Xcluder’s innovative line of rodent-proof exterior door sweeps. Standard rubber and brush door sweeps are not designed to withstand the gnawing power of rodents; left undisturbed, most rodents can chew through a basic door sweep in several minutes. Xcluder Rodent-Proof Door Sweeps feature Xcluder Fill Fabric - a blend of stainless steel and poly-fiber with sharp, coarse fibers that rodents cannot gnaw through. Xcluder Fill Fabric is the only rodent-proofing product on the market tested and proven effective by the USDA/APHIS lab.
Damaged and missing door sweeps are one of the most common entry points for rodents and other outside contaminants. Automatic entry doors create a multitude of potential entry points for rodents, inviting them to literally walk in the front door, as well as hot and cold air, dust and snow. The Xcluder Auto Slide Kit seals them all, allowing facility managers to protect their buildings’ inventory, employees, customers and brand reputation.
The kits feature rodent-proof door sweeps to protect the sliding and sidelite panel doors, each with a core of high-density Xcluder Fill Fabric. The sweeps’ durable rubber gaskets create a superior, energy-saving weather seal and feature an extended rubber flap to create a further seal against insects, harsh temperatures and other outdoor contaminants.
The Xcluder Auto Slide Kit is now available for both full breakout and fixed sidelite automatic entry door designs. The unique design features on both Xcluder Auto Slide Kits seal out rodents and other unwanted environmental contaminants without hindering the egress feature, which is unlike any conventional seal in the marketplace today. The Xcluder Auto Slide Kit - Full Breakout for automatic entry doors with full breakout design features four primary seals, two inner seal plates, four corner covers, two hinge gap covers, shims and mounting hardware. The seals fit doors with active panels up to 60” and sidelite leaves up to 54”. The Auto Slide Kit - Fixed Sidelite for automatic entry doors with a fixed sidelite design features two primary seals, individual roller hinges and corner brackets as well as two inner vertical seals. The seals fit doors with active panels up to 60”.
Xcluder Rodent-Proof Door Sweeps are another critical tool in the fight against rodents. Featuring high-density Xcluder Fill Fabric and durable TPV gaskets, Xcluder Commercial Door Sweeps are guaranteed to be impenetrable to mice and rats for the lifetime of any properly installed product. The newly-enhanced sweeps include screw-on end caps that seal the outer edge from even the most industrious rodents, and an extended rubber flap to create a flush ground seal and prevent light penetration, which is often how food safety auditors determine whether doors are at risk. Xcluder’s Rodent-Proof Door Sweeps are designed to assist in meeting SQF, BRC, FDA and other food safety standards.
With 17 years of experience working closely with pest control professionals and facilities management teams to design the exact types of products necessary to protect retail, medical, food service and food production facilities, Xcluder is committed to comprehensive rodent exclusion. Xcluder products are made in America and are safe to use around people, animals, plants and food and contain no harsh chemicals.
