At eIron Doors, our door thickness is 2 ” (many other doors are 1- 1/2″) this gives your iron door a much more substantial feel and appearance. Although presently uncertified, each of our doors is built to pass coastal hurricane tests. Whether it’s exposed to sun and heat of Arizona or wind and ocean spray on the coast of Maine, it will hold up to the rigors of any environment. Our company insists that all scrollwork and designs be hand forged using solid 5/8” wrought iron stock then welds are ground and finished smooth. Many competitors cut corners by using “recycled iron”, tubing and cast aluminum, but these type of materials have no place in a premium iron entry door. All Iron Doors NOW are fully welded premium 12 gauge metal (industry standard is a thin 14 gauge), plus include a unique color matched door sweep and integrated threshold. Every double door includes weather tight front T-Astragal and locking flush bolt for inactive side to make it weather tight. Iron Doors NOW has pre-drilled 2- holes in each door 2 1/8″ x 2 3/4″ Set back- measuring 6” on center for handles that are purchased separately. All the doors we make rest of decorative fully enclosed ball bearing hinges and doors will be injected with Polyurethane foam of the best quality to ensure a proper seal and promote energy efficiency.
IRON DOOR NOW FINISHES
Every entry door made by eIron Doors is finished Dark Bronze to the absolute highest standards through a unique 7 step process. Our doors are galvanized and electrostatically coated with zinc primer before painting (many other doors are not galvanized). This helps make eIron Doors the most rust-resistant iron door in the industry. First we start with sandblasting to remove any impurities, second is a hot-dip galvanization process followed by an electrostatically coated layer of Zinc primer to virtually eliminate any kind of rust. Next we spray on premium grade “Nippon” Black Epoxy enamel that is baked on for 2 hours at high temperature. Finally we hand apply a copper faux finish and seal with a clear coat to ensure your door looks great for many years to come. Some homeowners choose to stay with this rich black satin finish, but a majority of customers at eIron Doors opt for our standard aged dark bronze finish, for which our high quality Epoxy basecoat provides the perfect foundation.
HINGED GLASS MAKES CLEANING IRON DOORS NOW A BREEZE
Our entry doors incorporate a fully sealed separate swing out-unit which houses the glass. This provides easy access to the exterior glass for cleaning. One of the benefits of the 2″ door thickness we use at eIron Doors is that it allows us to have a flush fitting swing-out glass panel. Having the glass panel fit flush gives our door a cleaner appearance on the interior side. As for latching, we use a simple compression lock that opens with a few turns of the wrist. These are not only much more secure then an average thumb latch, but provide for a better appearance. At eIron Doors, we never forget the importance of every detail.
