A CLD response is incorporated into the present invention with a force model having nonzero components in the direction of door closing and tangential to the direction of door closing. In combination with the lumen 2 at the hinge H 11 , the profile is allowed to compress in two planes: The hinged weatherseals described herein may be utilized in standard entry doors, and as such, may be manufactured to particular sizes and dimensions widely accepted in the industry. In yet another embodiment, the first leg has a substantially triangular cross section and wherein the substantially continuous elongate lumen has a substantially triangular cross section nested in the first leg. In the case whereby the foam has been coated on the surface, the only evacuation route for the ambient air that fills the cells is via the ends of the profile.
All data from boxes 2 through 8, inclusive, are potentially used to generate a door system model box A simulation of a slam durability test performed on door systems can be performed as follows. Many times, a door panel or frame has uneven surfaces and requires a seal that is compliant and uniform through the compression range to ensure a proper seal and closing force under all operating conditions. In an embodiment, the hinged portion is configured to bend upon application of a force to at least one of the first portion and the second portion. The overslam bumper is incorporated as a local Z direction force which can be obtained from a load vs.

It is therefore desired to be secured in the appended claims all such modifications as fall within the spirit and scope of the technology. Recent designs utilize a variety of surface options including covering with polyethylene film, providing bare foam areas e. Retrieved 22 February Hollow hinges b reduce the CLD, since there is less material to be folded at the hinge b. In another aspect, the technology relates to a method of creating a seal between a door and a frame having mounted thereon a hinged foam weatherseal defining a plurality of substantially continuous lumens, the method including:
