The Devil is in the Details

The wrong component can wear and break your door prematurely. Our steel doors are crafted using the best parts available. Here some features that make our exterior doors exceptional:

Steel Entry Doors - Adjustable Self-Draining Door Sweep

Adjustable Self-Draining Door Sweep

Directs driving rain water to sill and eliminates leaks to the interior floor. Multiple fins with an interior compression bulb seal allow for movement while preventing drafts.

Steel Entry Doors - Warm-Edge Anodized Sill

Warm-Edge Anodized Sill

Extruded PVC thermal break sill adapter eliminates interior condensation. Heavy-duty extruded aluminum sloping exterior sill plate with sill extensions directs rainwater away from the door with a slip resistant surface. Solid wood sub-sill provides a solid base to support weight. NAFS Approved.

Steel Entry Doors - Insulated Steel Door Slab

Insulated Steel Door Slab

24-gauge galvanized steel panels separated with perimeter stiles and a 16-inch Iock block. Rust-resistant steel with added security against break-ins built into the hardware area. Insulated with CFC-free polyurethane foam insulation against extreme cold and hot weather conditions.

Steel Entry Doors - Waterproof Closed-Cell Foam Gasket

Waterproof Closed-Cell Foam Gasket

Applied between wood jamb and sill provides that extra seal to prevent water seepage and wood rot.

Steel Entry Doors - Heavy-Duty Wood Jambs

Heavy-Duty Wood Jambs

Thicker 1-1/2” jambs - compare that to the industry standard of 1-1/4”. Assembled with 3” screws instead of the usual staples. Finger-jointed wood helps prevent warping, and the heavier frame anchors strong hinges able to support larger door panels with heavier glass.

Steel Entry Doors - PVC-Wrapped Jambs

PVC-Wrapped Jambs

The wood jambs are wrapped in a waterproof vinyl cladding. Vinyl offers a final, maintenance-free finish that won’t weather or fade, and is easy to clean.

Steel Entry Doors - Magnetic and Compression Weather Stripping

Magnetic and Compression Weather Stripping

Foam compression weather strip on hinge jamb. Magnetic weatherstrip on header and latch jambs. The magnet sticks to the steel door panel and compresses against foam to prevent drafts.

Steel Entry Doors - Choice of Weatherstrip Colour

Choice of Weatherstrip Colour

We offer our weather strip in black or beige, to coordinate better with the door or cladding. Does not create eye sore of white on a colour door. Eliminates light at the bottom of the door caused by reflection of sunlight.

Steel Entry Doors - 16” Security Plate

16” Security Plate

A 16-inch, 18-gauge thick steel plate is applied to the door jamb at the handle and lock location. Provides maximum security against break-ins.

Steel Entry Doors - Heavy-Duty Ball-Bearing Hinges

Heavy-Duty Ball-Bearing Hinges

Heavy-gauge, ball-bearing hinges extruded in solid brass provide effortless swinging, with increased weight capacity for those very heavy glass options. Available in multiple finishes, to match the chosen hardware or the caming in the decorative glass insert.

Steel Entry Doors - Black Sill Crown & Sweep Cover (option)

Black Sill Crown & Sweep Cover (option)

Black sweep and sill crown go perfectly with painted doors.

Get More Natural Light with Transoms and Sidelites

Transoms and sidelites are a great way to allow more natural light into the entrance of your home. Aside from being an aesthetic upgrade for your door system, they can enhance your view from the inside of your home and allow for additional natural light to pass into your front entrance.

Transom Options

Transoms are essentially fixed windows above your door. They allow natural light, making the interior brighter and more spacious. Doors with transoms can make a big statement from the street, and are a perfect fit for homes with high ceilings. Our door transoms are manufactured in any shape or style, to enhance your property style, whether it’s a heritage building, split-level bungalow, or a minimalist contemporary home.

We offer four different transom styles:

Rectangular transom for residential front door

Sidelite Options

Regardless of how you spell it, a sidelite or sidelight is exactly what it sounds like: glass flanking the door. Apart from allowing more light inside, sidelites can offer a better view outside. Depending on the door opening size or its style, they can be manufactured as a fixed door panel with a glass insert, or take the form of a corner-to-corner insulated glass unit with your choice of clear, textured, or decorative glass.

We offer three different sidelite styles:

Full light sidelite for residential front door
