Concealed Interlocking Hinge Door Weather Strip

There are many advantages to this type of weather strip over other types such as vinyl, pile and neoprene. First and foremost, it will last the life of the door. Also, the door will operate freely with no additional force needed to close it. Below is illustrated two of the most commonly used combinations of weather strips. There are others.

No. 7 (jamb) & No.8 (door) No.1 (hinge side):  Detail

No cutting on head and lock side of jamb to install hook strip No.7. On the hinge side, a kerf ( thin slot ) should be made approximately 1/8” deep along the length of the door stop to receive the wide side flange of strip No.1. This is done with a kerfing saw ( Part number 205 ). Door must be rabbeted on the head and lock side and slotted on the hinge side. Nail heads will be visible, 1-½“ spacing.

                    

No. 17 (head, lock and hinge side on jamb and on door): Detail

Weather strip No. 17 must be kerfed ( as above ) into jamb and door. Door must be rabbeted on the head and lock side and slotted on the hinge side. Nail heads are hidden, 4“-5“ spacing. A nail holder ( Part number 209 ) is used to install nails.
