Commercial Door Weather Stripping

A quick learner from Florida says:
The weatherstripping is a 1/8" high felt on a 3/8" backing. It slides into place on the edge of the storefront commercial door. What do you recommend as a replacement? The gap between the double door is about 1/8" If there was a longer felt installed, would it keep the door from closing properly?

I'm not sure if we can supply a type of wool pile with the dimensions you need. I have a few suggestions, though. Take a look at our 58-050 which has a 7/16" backing, and the 58-161 which has a 11/32" backing. If you could use either of these backings to fit into the groove on the door then you could give the wool pile height a "shave" using a single edge razor blade. I have done that in the past to get the correct height and it has worked well.

If not, we would like to see the edge of the commercial door where the wool pile goes inserts, as well as a photo of the wool pile itself. Please include dimensions. Maybe that will help us identify the weather stripping you need.
