OBS

(...) les coupe-bise à ressorts ajustables, offerts en vinyle et en aluminium assurent une excellente étanchéité. En revanche, ils coûtent plus cher et ils risquent de déformer une porte neuve ou trop mince. (...) lorsqu'on les met en place, il faut toujours prévoir 1/2 pouce de caoutchouc en surplus pour compenser les rétrécissements possibles.
