SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Weatherstrip on first generation Pella Sliding Patio Door

A home owner from Alexandria, VA says:
Patio door purchased around 1990; no serial numbers or markers on it. The vertical weather seal between the sliding door and fixed door needs replacement. It fits into a retention slot on the fixed wood door.

Am looking for original replacement if possible or similar one. Caution note is that the inside removable window has clips which rub across the seal which can cause rapid wear of the strip it touches.

The original seal as seen in pics had three "fans" which formed the seal between the door. They were flexible and bent easily.

If no original is available, I wonder if bubble seal 5/16" (Swisco part 58053) would do the job. Thanks in advance for your help. (Hope the drawing and two pics help).

If this is for a Pella door, I wonder if our 58-181 can work. This has a similar shape and method of installation. Check it out and see what you think.
