Kawneer door seals are bad

A handy person from Bunker Hill, IL. says:
The entry doors on our church have an oval tag at the bottom that says-"Kawneer". The door seals are bad, but I have the same problem as many of your other customers, the channel that the seal fits into is under 1/2". The 58-085 looks ridged and possibly either the door or the seal would have to be modified. The 58-111 looks somewhat flexable and may fit easier into a smaller channel. What is your opinion on this? I truly appreciate your help, thank you

Both of these can be used on Kawneer doors. You say yours is shy of 1/2", which makes me think that our 58-111 would be better. This is made of stainless steel, which is flexible. The 58-085, on the other hand, is made of an rigid aluminum extrusion. I believe either could fit, but if you want to be on the safe side then consider the 58-111.
