Need 1/4" backing weatherstripping

A quick learner from USA says:
We ordered and received 58-127 and 58-156 Unfortunately,
the backing strip is not wide enough for our doors.
The ordered backing strip is 3/8 but ours is 1/4.
Do you carry the same material with wider backing?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
I'm afraid we don't have anything in this style that is 1/4". Can you confirm that measurement? Keep in mind that this measurement can get pretty specific, getting even into the 1/32" range. Double check and See if you can get a more accurate measurement. If you want, you can also send us some pictures of your old seal. That might help.
A friend from Iberia says:
It looks like the 9/32 backing is the one we need.
Can you give us a quote on the same amount/type of stripping that we ordered?

Our 58-045 measures 9/32" x 1/4", but you might want to go up to 58-099. That is 5/16" high, and since wool pile compresses it might be ideal. It's up to you, however. All prices can be found on each part's respective store page.
