Therma-Tru Asks: Looking For A New Door? Try Fibreglass

Stocks in this article: FBHS

Every spring, homeowners take stock of their home exteriors and renew efforts on household maintenance projects. The experts at Therma-Tru recommend homeowners make certain to inspect their exterior doors regularly to assure years of long-lasting beauty and service.

"If, while performing your annual inspection, it becomes apparent that you're in the market for a new door, consider one made of fibreglass," says Chris Maulucci, Technical Sales Manager with Therma-Tru. "A solid fibreglass door is up to four times more energy efficient than a solid wood door, plus you get the benefits that fibreglass has to offer, including resistance to rot, rust, dents and weather."

Another factor to consider is what's on the inside of your door. The dense polyurethane foam used in the core of Therma-Tru ® fibreglass doors helps the doors achieve high thermal performance values.

According to Maulucci, homeowners choosing to add decorative glass to their Therma-Tru fibreglass doors can also count on energy-efficient features. The company's triple-pane construction of most doorlites and sidelites creates both a strong thermal and acoustical barrier. Factory-coated Low-E glass, available as an option for clear glass, also delivers exceptional energy efficiency. During a cold Canadian winter, the Low-E glass helps reduce the loss of heat by reflecting the heat back inside the home. When the seasons change and it is time to enjoy a beautiful Canadian summer, the Low-E glass reflects the sun's rays off of the glass, helping keep the interior of the home cool.

Benefits of Fibreglass Doors Constructed as a complete system of components, Therma-Tru fibreglass doors are designed and engineered to work together for lasting performance, security and energy efficiency. Multi-point locking systems that engage a series of locks at several places on the frame, plus the adjustable security strike plate that can withstand up to three times the force of a standard strike plate*, are key factors in creating a dependable Therma-Tru entry door system. Therma-Tru fibreglass doors are also available with the exclusive Tru-Defense® door system. This system integrates specific components engineered and tested to deliver outstanding protection in all kinds of weather conditions.
