The Anatomy Of An Iron Door
Our wrought iron doors come pre-hung in a heavy steel frame that enables your door to be hung with perfect accuracy upon install. The frames are typically 6” wide to mount cleanly on a 2”x4” stud framework, although some door frames will add a 2” extension to mount on to a 2”x6” stud framework. This is to allow the exterior brick mold, stone, stucco etc. to be finished flush with the doorframe. Unlike other materials, these frames will never rust, warp, or break!
These iron entry doors are thick and durable. All doors are one-piece construction, crafted with 12-gauge steel. The stiles and rails are typically 2” X 6” steel tubing depending on door style. Every door is injected with polyurethane foam to guarantee the highest level of energy efficiency and sound reduction.
To ensure maximum R-value (thermal resistance) and reduction of sound transmission, each door is injected with polyurethane foam insulation. The foam expands to fill all of the air space inside of the doors. This insulation technique provides superior energy efficiency.
A hinged glass panel opens independently from the door to provide for easy cleaning of the glass, added security, or just to let in the fresh air. This feature allows the double-pane glass to open, leaving only the secure ornamental scrollwork between you and the great outdoors. The hinged glass window has its own weather stripping and is secured by a strong steel latch to ensure the perfect seal. From low-e, aquatex, or privacy; our glass options will fit the needs of any homeowner. See what glass options are available for your iron security door on the product pages.
Iron Scroll Work
Our doors have 5/8” hand-forged and hand-twisted steel scrollwork. This scrollwork is made of round or square bar depending on door style and welded directly to the heavy tubing frame. The scroll work can vary from ornate European to new age contemporary, and every door has it's own unique personality.
We offer various decorative finishes to best suit your home’s needs. Each door has its own options for finish color and style, which can be configured on the product page. Some of our most popular finishes consist of bronze and copper antiquing, which gives the door its unique, old world style.
Several different techniques are used in the coating and painting of cast iron doors. The process takes place in a clean paint booth environment and then oven dried to perfection. The steps in the process are sandblasting, hot galvanizing zinc coating, baked-on anticorrosive primer, baked on black epoxy topcoat, hand-painted antiquing finish, clear coat, and a final antique coat to protect your contemporary door’s finish for years to come.
Each entrance door is predrilled for the standard handles and locksets compatible with iron doors. Standard hardware preparation is a double bore of 2-1/8” diameter, 2-3/4” backset and 5-1/2” center to center. We are happy to make recommendations on the top-quality iron door hardware, and provide recommendations for the best option for your decorative iron door.
Our wrought iron front doors come with strong, luxurious ball bearing hinges for superior appearance and easy installation. The doorframes are squared and leveled before the hinges are positioned and welded, ensuring smooth operation.
We offer heavy-duty weather stripping around the jamb, door panels, and glass doorframes to keep all precipitation and wind outside of your home. All doors also come with highly durable door sweeps and adjustable thresholds – ensuring an airtight, all-weather door.
Our iron double doors come with a flush bolt system to lock in the dormant door. This ensures that the inactive door stays firmly in place while operating the door. The active door will lock sturdily into it’s final airtight position.
All iron door warranties vary by their manufacturer. The warranty information for each door is located in the detail section of the product page. Most doors come with a warranty on the door, finish, and sometimes, glass. Iron exterior door hardware is typically subject to the manufacturer's warranty.
