When choosing strip sizes and overlaps, consider the following:

  • For taller doors, the strips should be heavier and wider
  • Smaller width strips are easier to pass through than wide strips
  • When air movement is a problem, choose the wider strip with full overlap
  • Consult your Aleco customer service representative
