This video is to bring you a closer look at the Pemko 3452AV. This is a mill finish aluminum door sweep with an integrated drip cap. I like door sweeps with drip caps because they are effective and proven effective. People who have installed door sweeps with drip caps have come to learn that they are incredibly greater performance at helping retard the transmission of water underneath of the door. Just that small amount of projection that is here and we will go over the dimensional properties of it in a moment significantly increase the ability to keep the water from getting underneath of the door. So the 3452 is representative of this profile. It is an aluminum extrusion with an integrated drip cap that features a seal. The A in the part number means mill aluminum finish and it is available in dark bronze and satin nickel and painted white and gold finishes as well. The V means that the insert material is vinyl and just a typical builder’s quality sort of item that you would see installed in most pieces of weatherstripping. There is an image below this video showing everything important dimensionally about the item. You can see that the overall height is an 1-1/4″ of the aluminum extrusion and then another 1/4″ for the vinyl so that is an 1-1/2″ is what the overall is. That projection of 1/2″ is common. I like this unit because it is again higher performing and that is because of that drip cap. It is inexpensive meaning that if you had to buy a hundred of them you could do so at a reasonable cost certainly because you are buying standard vinyl. Vinyl is certainly is the last choice if you want the best or the most durable seal material but if your project calls for vinyl, that is what the V stands for, vinyl. Not particularly good in extreme temperatures or exposure to ultraviolet sunlight but none the less, it is sold per foot basis and is certainly the least expensive and will still give you a drip cap sort of item. Available in several different lengths on the website. If you have need for a custom length by all means let us know by ordering the next longest piece or pieces and indicate in the comment field what length you would like for us to cut the material back to. The reasoning is if you had to take this 36″ piece and cut it down to say 34″, you would eliminate this slotted hole that’s there. The next slotted hole is all of the way over here. Speaking of those slotted holes, the unit includes screws in a complementary finish. It is handy to have that slotted hole from the factory because it allows you to tailor the installation onto a sill that may not be level or a door that may not be plumb and it also helps compensate for a miss drilled hole. You know when you are pre-drilling screw holes for the screws itself to hold it on, the drill bit has a tendency to walk a little bit if you have not used a center punch before it pierces in to the steel, aluminum, fiberglass, or bronze, stainless, or whatever you were attaching it to. So if you order a custom length, we will not only locate that first slotted hole at the proper distance from the edge, but the proper center to center as well. This is a door sweep that I would recommend if what you need is a economy and yet decent performance, this 3452 from Pemko is a perfect solution for that confluence of needs. Pemko the name is synonymous with all things weatherstripping related. Another thing I want to mention that I like about this is that it has this flat that goes up behind the extrusion as well and that is probably there as a design requirement because when you attach this down with screws there will be a small amount of imperceptible flex that could occur on this and that flap behind here will help compensate for any moisture getting behind the aluminum holder. Anyway, I was saying that Pemko is synonymous with all thing weatherstripping related. Not only material like this that is generally used in the commercial setting although this would be great for a residential application but thresholds, perimeter gasketing, material made of aluminum like this, stainless steel, architectural bronze, and they have a comprehensive offering of aluminum continuous geared hinges as well.
