An example of a stunning stainless steel full-lite door. While the cost directs it towards commercial use, it would also fit well into a well-designed residential building.

The selection of standard metal doors is usually limited to aluminum frames with full-lite glass or aluminum panels. However, we do offer steel framed doors in full-lite glass form, but not in panelized form such as for fire-rated doors. These types of metal doors offered are seldom seen in North America outside of commercial applications. The insert panel designs are independent of the door profile system so that any of the aluminum window profile systems can also be made into Entry doors with full-lite glass and aluminum panel inserts. Both of the steel window profile systems can only handle full-lite glass. Some aluminum inserts are solid and have no glass while others have varying degrees of glass coverage. The panels are insulated with rigid foam and have a standard value for Up of less than 0.300 which means that they have good thermal performance characteristics. These doors are appropriate for all types of buildings and come in a variety of hardware.
