Arrived quickly, packed very well (thick tube with pad on each end to keep contents in place). it installed very easily (I install several doors a year), comes with everything you need to complete the install. I replaced a homemade astragal someone had made, which was broken and left the house vulnerable to break in. The homeowner was bracing for a new set of French doors, I googled aluminum astragals and found this one (many did not come complete, they did not come with deadbolt assembly). Homeowner was pleased with the look of the astragal, and it saved her a minimum of $1300.00 for a new door and installation. I gave it only four stars because I cannot vouch for longevity. I contacted customer service before I ordered to make sure I had everything I needed, there response was quick and informative. I am old fashioned and prefer all parts to be metal which doesn’t happen any more, The astragal is aluminum, and the top and bottom bolts are metal, the slide mechanisms, the strike mount and deadbolt mount are not metal. It feels solid and when the doors are closed it feels secure.
I am ecstatic about this product. My generic brand french doors were rotting. I was looking at $2000 at a minimum to replace them. I found this site … ordered this astragal and miscellaneous woodstripping, etc. The product arrived in a couple of days, packed very cleverly well.
I was able to install it myself in an afternoon, and OMG the look and fit is unbelievable. The part fits perfectly. My doors close with no gap, they close better than they ever did. The part has a lot of plastic on it and air in the middle, so I can’t comment on longevity or insulating ability in the winter. But i am extremely happy with the product, it’s given new life to my doors.
One thing I would suggest is to fully read all of the instructions first, so you understand everything that is going to happen (including the cutting of the astragal to fit). You can get the instructions online on this site to read through.
