Polaris Steel Entry Doors

KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS


1 - Ultra Performance Frame

• Standard Exterior Frame & Brick Mould
• Rot Resistant composite bottom will not wick or absorb water.
• Cost Effective - fractionally more than traditional wood frames
  with Long Term Savings.
• Environmentally Conscious recycled wood composite material
  joined with plantation grown pine. No hazardous chemicals.
  Excellent machinability, sanding and paint adhesion.
  Structurally Sound - Maintenance-Free - Limited Lifetime Warranty


2 - Composite Lock Block

• 4″ x 10″ composite lock block has more screw-holding power than
  wood. It is injection-molded for uniform size. The door remains flat
  and strong beneath hardware.
• Elongated lock block holes accomodate 2 ⅜″ or 2 ¾″ hardware
  back set.
• Foam fill within door slab insulates completely around hardware area
  with composite lock block - no cold spot where you grasp door most.


3 - Steel Reinforcing Strike Plate

• Attaches behind strike jamb for additional security.

HARDWARE COMPONENTS

22 Gauge Steel
• Heavy duty steel reduces denting and waves in the steel skin.

• Sheet metal gauge ranges from 30 to 8. Lower gauge = Thicker metal.

• Many competitors use 25 gauge steel. Our doors are approximately 10 pounds heavier than competitor 25 gauge doors.

Standard Ball Bearing Hinges
Polaris Standard Ball Bearing Hinges
Competitor Ball Bearings
• Smooth, quiet operation.
• Durable.
• Match hardware finish.
Without ball bearings, friction between
hinge “knuckles” reduces life of hinge
and increases resistance.


Standard Patented Adjustable

Hinge Plate System

• Hinge plates are secured to a 12 gauge metal
  reinforced adjustable hinge block within the
  steel door slab.

• Hinge plates adjust up and down, in and out for
  a weather tight seal.

• Machine screws attach the hinges to the block.

• Door always resets securely, no matter how
  many times the screws are removed. No wood
  edge door can ever claim that!

ENERGY EFFICIENCY
Core
• 2 ½″ polyurethane foam core meets environmental guidelines and offers maximum thermal protection.

Low-E Glass
• Low-E thermally efficient glass upgrade is offered through the City Lites Collection and in Garden Patio Doors.
  Invisible metallic coating blocks heat flow and shields against damaging ultra violet rays.

Weather-Strip
• Our compression weather-strip forms a weather-tight seal. The resilient foam is impervious to moisture and maintains its shape.
  We offer high-performance weather-strip and bottom sweep upgrades to further strengthen the weather barrier of your entry.

Threshold
• Weather-tight adjustable threshold - a few turns with a screw driver achieves a proper seal at the bottom of the door.

Cladding

• Ultra Cladding - has no exposed fasteners, requires
  no painting, and will not dent or wave.

• Aluminum Roll Form Cladding - vinyl coating
  protects exterior door jamb from weather.
  Embossed wood grain texture.
  No need to paint or stain.

STRENGTH & STABILITY





Safety

• All steel-edge perimeter - more stable and stronger
  than any wood edge door.

• Galvanized inner and outer steel sheets offer strength
  and durability. There is no wood to rot, warp, split or
  bow, making it difficult to even dent our doors.

• No rotting, splitting or insect infestation like
  wood edge doors.

• Polaris Ultra Entry Steel Doors do not force open
  after 7 hits of a 100lb. test weight for a Grade 40
  Security Rating. Your family is secure behind the
  best safety rating in the industry.
