SUGARCREEK, Ohio, March 9, 2017 –There are several details engineered into the stile and rail system design of ProVia’s Signet Fiberglass doors that are designed to maximize strength.
Strong Stile and Rail System
A typical door in the marketplace has a 1-5/8" rail all the way around the door that's tack nailed or glued. On Signet doors the strike side rail is a 4-1/4", 4-ply hardwood stile. While most fiberglass doors have a multi-piece construction in the rail around the lockbox, the Signet strike side rail runs continuously through the height of the door, eliminating the need for a lockbox. This not only adds to the overall strength of the door, but also enhances security.
Corners Are Dovetailed, Not Tack Nailed
Corners that are dovetailed provide more strength than those that are tack nailed or glued together. Signet’s dovetails give the door stronger construction that helps prevent warping and bowing.
Drier Wood Materials
Signet’s hardwood stiles and rails are kiln dried. This pre-stabilizes the wood to minimize expansion and contraction.
These Signet design elements make for a much more structurally sound door that lasts. They help to resist warping and bowing that no homeowner wants.
