weather stripping

A quick learner from Gresham, OR. says:
1/4" fin x 3/8" knap x 7' long

Fin = white plastic that slides into the door or kerf

Knap = black hair that protrudes from the Fin and seals the door

Looking to match what we have, we have 5 or so doors that need new weather stripping.

I'm afraid that we don't have a type of wool pile in that exact size. The closest options we have are our 58-158, which has a 7/32" wide base and a 5/16" high pile (as well as a rubber rain strip running down the center), and our 58-099, which is 9/32" wide x 5/16" tall. Could you use either of these as a replacement? If you want, you can order a sample of each here to try out.

Sorry to get back to you so late, cruise to Alaska! now back to work...let's try the 7/32", 58-099 sample and the 9/32" sample. How does that process begin?

You can click here to view our selection of samples and place an order directly from there.

So I tried your two samples, the 58-158 would fit into the door, but was a bit short on the pile length. Tom, do you have a wool pile that is 7/32 x 5/8 black (or gray)?

Tom from SWISCO responded:

I'm afraid that 5/16" is the highest wool pile we have that also has a 7/32" base. 5/8" is very large for wool pile, in fact, and we only see it in special cases like the 58-179, which is for commercial grade doors. Could this be a better option for you?

A quick learner from Gresham, OR. says:
Yes I may get a sample of that one, thanks Tom.

Great! Please let us know how this one works out, too. We'll get something to fit come hell or high water.

A quick learner from Gresham, OR. says:
Hey Tom, the 58-179 has a great length of pile for our door. Its just that the fin is too small. the fin needs to be 7/32nd"and the pile for our commercial doors needs to be as close as possible to 5/8". Anything fit that bill?

Dave Sr. from SWISCO responded:

Unfortunately, I could not find any wool pile anywhere with a 7/32" backing at any height. The only ones I could find have a 7/32" back. The commercial doors I'm familiar with use the 58-014 for a double set of doors. You may need to look on the door for the name of the company who supplied the doors or check with a glass shop in your area who may have installed their doors. 

I apologize we could not provide more help with this.
