Exterior Doors (303)
Weatherstripping for exterior doors comes in an array of sizes and shapes. Longer door sills and sweeps measure more than 40 inches long. These are ideal for wide doors in commercial and industrial applications such as hangars, warehouses, and public buildings. Options measuring 36 inches are suitable for standard residential and commercial doors. The tapes, seals, and backer rods also come in various thicknesses and materials. These can fit gaps of different sizes around doors to keep in the warmth and improve soundproofing. There are various shapes of thresholds for use with swinging, garage, and sliding doors. U-shape designs keep out insects, dust, splashes, and drafts to protect carpets and keep interiors comfortable. Other types of weatherstripping feature wedge shapes that are wheelchair accessible. Fin-seal designs are suitable for patio doors and sliding windows.
There are many options and colours for weatherstripping doors. Wood and rubber thresholds with foam edges provide stylish and long-lasting weatherstripping. Some options are paintable so users can create uniform entryways or change colours to blend with their decor. Foam, vinyl, and rubber strips are available in various colours including brown, white, clear, and black. The insulation and window film materials are easy to cut into different sizes to fit around doors and window sills. Their elastic designs make them ideal for creating tight seals along irregular surfaces. Some thresholds feature robust aluminum with neoprene or vinyl construction. These have high load-bearing abilities to keep their shape even after years of use.
It's easy to install weatherstripping on exterior home doors using nails or screws to secure wood and hold aluminum thresholds in place. For tool-free installation, choose vinyl, rubber, and foam weatherstripping with adhesive or magnetic backing. Some options come in individual pieces, while others are in packs for larger projects. Sets can have screws, nails, two side strips, and a top strip. Others include top, side, and hinge strips for swinging doors. Several options feature kits using recycled materials.
