Rubber for Moermans Liquidator?


Hello Community,

It may be a stupid question but why arent there any companies jumping on the bandwagon and offering precut rubber for the Moerman Liquidator?

As its kind off time robbing to cut other brands rubbers down to use with a Liquidator?


Probably cause they want the Liquidator to die


The simple fact of the matter is you don’t need to cut the corners off 95% of the time, and in some situations cutting the corners off will prevent you from getting the job done.( this is due to exposed low E coat)


…I’m not following. Can you explain that?


It doesn’t take that long to cut rubber to size to fit the liquidators @Secondmineboy.


You can pre cut a few of them once a week ready for use saves time :slight_smile:


Sort of like asking Audi to make Ferrari parts.


cause it takes 5 seconds to cut the rubber.


And then it would take me about two minutes to figure out how to get it back in and then oh crap where did that end clip pop off to…?

Like the sorbo, take two of those end clips out and one disappears right before your eyes. I was watching them and blink and one is gone.


i must not have the same problems you do



Yeah, I bought one of the first ones and when I went to change the rubber, that’s when Things Happened and I just could never get it to work right after that.


the one in the video is also one of the first ones. I remember a lot of guys talking about losing end clips. to be honest if you’re just paying attention to what you’re doing I don’t see why you would lose one.


Exposed Low E coat has about 4 times the amount of drag that tinted glass has, when you use cut rubbers on this glass the rubber is literally pulled out of the channel at the corners as there is not enough surface area within the channel to hold it in with the increased drag as you turn.


Question? I’ve just come back from Oz and nearly all the windows I noted were single glazed which means the tinted coating is exposed on one side or the other. I’ve rarely come across it over here as we are predominantly double glazed and assembled correctly the treatment is on an internal surface. Is this unique to Australia, having to deal with the godawful drag, or do other markets experience it as well?


@Steve076 can probably give some information on this. That’s his neck of the globe.


I honestly can’t remember if I have ever seen a double glazed glass as you guys have, I remember a few old commercial high rise buildings from the 70s where they had a hex key to open then to clean 3 sides(external side was done via rope).

The first time I experienced Low E exposed was 18 years ago, have not liked it much.
As far as correct assembly its more to due with climate than anything else. It just doesn’t get cold enough here to warrant spending double the cost on double glazing.
