Density goes a long way

Weather Stripping may go unnoticed to the residential customer but the manufacturers and test lab technicians understand the importance of high density wool pile in windows and doors. While many producers of weatherstripping dilute the density of pile. Stern's Obicular Weather Stripping holds a consistent density of pile to support the fin and keep the window openings sealed. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the importance of pile in weatherstripping.

Closed July 4th and 5th

Stern & Company will be closed on the 4th and 5th of July to celebrate the holiday. Please contact your rep if there is an emergency.

We will all be back to work on Monday the 8th to discuss everything from insulated glass sealants to weather stripping.

Have a great 4th of July!

Woven back weather stripping is the best!

While many companies have stopped producing woven backed weatherstripping, Stern only provides this style. Our experienced reps stand by our claim that the woven style will hold better in the extrusions during processing. Give us a call if your company has been having any issues with weatherstripping, concerning the pile density, the backing, the delivery, ect.

Understanding the difference in pile and weather beater.

Knowing the difference between pile and weather beater could save your window up to 50% on air infiltration. Weather beater, soft fine weather stripping, and pile all have specific performance applications depending on the location of use. Our team has over 100 years combined experience with weather stripping and are always available for help. Please give us a call today to see if you are applying your weather stripping to its full capability.
