This video is to bring you a closer look at the National Guard Products 2NDKB. This is in essence a piece of extruded aluminum that has an insert and it is called a stop strip. It is something that can be applied down to a frame or to a sill or to a header or to a threshold that will allow you to create a bump-up sort of application. So a common scenario is where you have a saddle type threshold or an offset threshold and your client says they would really like to have a positive stop and rather than extract out the old threshold, you can add this to it. The 2 is representative of this profile, this aluminum piece with the insert. The insert in this case happens to be N for neoprene. There are other inserts available. V for vinyl, P for pile which is a soft bristle, S for silicone. Neoprene is a good choice because it is very durable. It is less flexible than the others but if you had a scenario where you wanted in my opinion you were going to forgo the flexibility of silicone and have something that perhaps will be used less and still provide an opening that is lower frequency and go with something that will have a thicker wall and will give you in my opinion a better long term sort of scenario, then I would consider neoprene. Here is what I am trying to say. It is less flexible. I would not use it on doors instead of silicone that had lots of traffic because I don’t want the stiffness of the neoprene to hamper at all the operation of the door. I would opt for pile in lots of scenarios as well. Maybe if it was an application where there weren’t extreme temperatures but you still needed to seal obviously on the face of the door, I would go with pile. I would go with vinyl only if it was an economic sort of decision. If you had 300 of these to buy, there is a significant difference between vinyl and neoprene silicone or pile cost wise but it is also the least performing of all of them. The DKB means dark bronze. If you omit that, you would have a milled aluminum finish. So you will add that stop strip to lots of applications that require a positive seal for the base of the door or the window. I’ve had lots of people that order them and are going to install them on windows and wanted something very durable, attractive, long lasting, and something that would provide a solution. This is also fire rated, UL10B, UL10C for 90 minute and 3 hour. Lets go over the dimensional properties. Overall, it doesn’t really give you an overall of what the projection of the neoprene is, but we can here. It is about 11/16″. The overall height of the item is indeed 3/8″. This is available and will ship from the factory, drilled and countersunk with machine screws which would be of course very typical. If you were going to be installing this down to wood, indicate in the comment field what screw package you want. Indicate something like omit machine screws and please ship wood screws or something to that effect. If you need a custom length, by all means let us know by ordering the next longest piece or pieces and indicating in the comment field what length you would like for us to cut the material back to. The reasoning is this. If you had to take this 3′ piece and cut it down to say 30″, you would eliminate that countersink which you really want the factory to do. cutting it is probably not such a trick, it is a small piece of material, but drilling through something 3/8″ thick and then possessing a countersink so that flathead screw might be something that you would want to skip. So if you order a custom length, we will give you that first hole at the proper distance from the edge and of course the proper center to center as well. There is a link below this video to a document called the product brochure where you will be able to see all of the stop strips from National Guard, there are four of them and there are different dimensional properties for all of them. There is one that is literally just a piece of aluminum that does not feature an insert while the other three do. The options are available such as an anti-slip resistance that can be done on the aluminum finish versions. Finally, there is a link below this video to the manufacturer’s page where you can pull up not only all of the National Guard products that we sell, but also a link to the manufacturer’s website along with a link to the manufacturer’s product catalog. If you have more than an occasional need for weatherstripping, by all means familiarize yourself with the National Guard catalog because their name is synonymous with excellent quality products and an excellent price, and industry leading ship times.
