Default Double sealing doors

In my quest of sound proofing the van to the max, I ran into a video from china showing the soundproofing service they provide. In one procedure they installed an extra seal around the doors. Has anyone tried this? Looks to be a "D" type seal.

Most of the car manufacturers have adopted the double door seal.
As I recall, this has been the case for the past number of years.

My honda has 2 seals and the 2018 model will be triple sealed. The Promaster has a second seal on the top of the doors only.

Installed rubber seal on slider and passenger door, also in pic drip rail. Should be a little drier now and maybe quieter. it fills the gap perfect and no problem closing the doors.

Need 25' per side to do the 1passenger door and slider

Been raining here and I notice the door jambs are dry and I don't get drips inside when I open the slider. I imagine it will help keep the jamb areas cleaner when driving through dusty areas.

Default Rear door

I'm using a larger seal for the rear door. You cannot completely seal it off but I believe it will help keep dust and water out of the jambs.

This larger seal works perfect on the bottom sill of the slider.

Just camped out in a very dusty area for a few days, No dust in the door jambs and noticeably quieter while driving.
