Magnetic Weather Stripping?

Im not to sure If I have posted this in the right area or not but here goes anyway. I have a bunch of steel door cut outs from installing windows in slabs. I want to use the cutouts as access doors and attic hatches. we do loose fill topups with cellouse and sell airtight attic hatches installed. I cant find any magnetic weather stripping anywhere? Lowes , home depot , Rona and Home Hardware dont have it and have no idea where to get it. Does anybody know where I can get it locally?
Thanks , Ron

Re: Magnetic Weather Stripping?

We use to use the Stanley kits when Home Depot sold them. Maybe you can call Stanley direct and see if they know of any vendors that keep it in stock. Another one would be Larson (storm doors) they use to sell a door with magnetic weatherstripping.


To get the best replacement windows, or sun rooms contact the replacement windows experts at FHI Vinyl Window Company.

Macklinburg Duncan or W J Dennis
