I thin you will find them at either HD or Lowes or TrueValue. They are pretty common up here.

different country different techniqes, here i would get brush sweeps (with plastic fins) designed for fire doors

you rout them into the bottom of the door so they are hidden, they are sprung loaded so that as you open the door they are raised off the theshold

our building regs also require a similar mechanism ( class M thresholds ) for wheel chair access where the threshold of the door has to be flush with the floor

on external doors they also have to be weatherproof
