Recent testing has demonstrated that many door units, particularly "bull nose" doors, fail as a result of improper contact between the door and weatherstrip. This can be particularly significant at the top corner of the door.
Endura's testing showed that when air pressure increases on the exterior side of the door, water can flow over the top of the door and down the interior column of the weatherstrip, gaining entry to the interior of the door unit. To stop the air and water infiltration at this critical junction, Endura has added the Simple Corner to its line of high weatherseal components.
The Simple Corner works in conjunction with the door's existing compression weatherstrip to block water and air infiltration at the upper corners of the door unit. The Simple Corner is constructed of a long life foam that is easily installed behind the weatherstrip of the header and side frame to increase the contact between the door and the weatherstrip, keeping the area sealed when subjected to high air pressure or in the case of the door is warped or bowed.
- Works in conjunction with existing weatherstrip
- Provides up to 25% enhancement in door unit performance
- Easy to install and visually non-intrusive
The Simple Corner has been proven in certified testing to improve door performance in high-wind and wind-driven rain simulations.
Endura Products, Inc. manufactures entry door component systems that improve door construction, door installation and long-term performance in the home. Endura components improve functionality, maximize the seal between the door and the opening, and reduce air and water infiltration.
