Looking for 40" door threshold

I'm looking for door shoe/sweep/threshold that is 40" wide, a standard door is 36" so I'm not having much luck. Anybody know where I could get such a thing (online preferably)

I presume you already have a frame; it didn't come with the shoe?

You may have to go to a millwork company (that seems to be the keyword) and have them make you one.

Best answer: Industrial contractor suppliers may have what you are looking for. You might also call some salvage yards in your area, because they always have doors in the yard.

Response by poster: It's the entry door of our house. The previous owners have a plastic 36" shoe on it, with another four inches of another shoe tacked on. Perhaps shoe is the wrong word to use, in England I'd call it a draft excluder, here it seems to be called a shoe (according to the homedepot site anyway).

Are you talking about a threshold, which attaches to the FLOOR where the door closes, or a door sweep, which attaches to the DOOR at the bottom? See this image.

Since doorways that are wheelchair compatible are wider, perhaps a business that caters to wheelchair accessibility would also be of help? Maybe a look at your local phone book will get you going in the right direction.

Response by poster: It was the sweep I was after.
