REPLY: Hi David,<br />What I'm wondering about is in inches how much rubber extends from the metal casing. I'm planning to use this on a crawl space door not a garage and curious if it's going to work for me. Thanks by John S r
ANSWER: As I recall as I installed this on someone's garage door over 1 year ago, the rubber gasket was approximately 1-to-1-1/4 inches below the aluminum channel at maximum and compresses down to a minimum of 1/4-to-5/16 inches below the aluminum channels. I have sometimes placed pipe insulation inside the hollow rubber void area in areas where the garage slab has heaved or settled slightly in order to "tighten" the seal between the bottom of the door and the slab.or placed tapered shims between the door base and the top of the aluminum channel to deal with larger gaps. by David P a
