6 1/2” The door panel is made of a pultruded fiberglass frame filled with wood reinforcement, injection moulded reinforced mechanical welded corners with Polyurethane foam fill and sealed with silicone sealant. An optional 4 1/2” Pultruded Fiberglass Frame is available for single doors only. Door slabs are 24 gauge galvanized steel skin, available in prime finish, flush or embossed pattern.See the available skin types for door panels
The inswing door system uses a thermally broken aluminum sill, that has a strategically placed drainage system for water. The outswing door system uses a combination aluminum and oak sill with q-lon weather stripping to ensure a positive seal to the slab.
Nominal slab sizes are 30” (certain styles only), 32”, 34”, and 36” wide by 80” height and 96” height. Fibertec manufactures to sizes specified + / – 1/8” (3.17 mm) industry tolerance.
Fibertec uses a multi-point licking mechanism for all of our fiberglass entry doors. The locking system allows for the latchbolts to throw 20 mm and are secured to prevent them from being forced back. The deadbolts are engaged by turning the key/knob, the top and bottom latchbolts act as well and as a result it becomes a 3 deadbolts locking system.
Advantages of Multi-point Locking
- No lifting of handle is needed to engage locking points
- Provides great amount of security against forced entry
- Prevents air infiltration from gasket
- Protects door panel from warping
