You can use weatherstripping in your home to seal air leaks around movable joints, such as windows or doors.
To determine how much weatherstripping you will need, add the perimeters of all windows and doors to be weatherstripped, then add 5%–10% to accommodate any waste. Also consider that weatherstripping comes in varying depths and widths.
Door hardware includes items essential to the operation, control, security, weather resistance and acoustical performance of doors.
Hinges and pivots support doors in their frames and are available in various sizes and types to accommodate the size and weight of the door, and the frequency and severity of its use. Traditional knuckle-types hinges include mortise or surface, plain or anti-friction bearing, swing-clear, and pivot-reinforced. Features include safety studs, hospital tips, and non-removable pins. Special types include electrified, concealed pocket-type, spring-assisted self-closing, and continuous hinges.
