Classica, Amarr's pinch-resistant steel door with carriage house design embossments, is now available in a "sandwich" version. This new model has a 24-gauge exterior skin, a 27-gauge interior, and polyurethane insulation that gives it an R-value of 13.35. The patterns on the Classica Collection are pressed into the steel without the use of overlays. Available in 33 design combinations, utilizing a closed square top, a closed arch top and seven decorative windows. All models are pre-painted in white but can be painted any color.

Therma-Tru has expanded its Smooth-Star fiberglass entry doors with a new oval design, showcasing a three-panel embossment that features exclusive Smooth-Star decorative glass.

SillGuard, a rigid, three-piece sill pan, helps to minimize the potential for moisture penetration and wall damage around doors and windows. Made from resilient polypropylene, SillGuard features sloping drainage channels and support ribs that drain moisture away before it makes contact with the door frame. The thermally non-conductive material resists cracking or shattering. The 48-inch center piece can be easily trimmed.

Available in woodgrain or embossed woodgrain finishes and many decorative wood choices.




Gorell's deluxe sliding patio doors now offer interblinds, between-the-glass blinds that provide an alternative to traditional window treatments or mini-blinds. The blinds are permanently sealed between two panes of glass and never need to be cleaned or dusted. Homeowners can tilt the slats to a desired position or lift them to expand the viewing area. A durable two-way magnetic mechanism controls the movement of the blinds.

Colors: Chestnut, ochre, sage and taupe
