High-Performance Exterior Doors: Raising the Bar

By Peter Yost & Martin Solomon

We ask even more of our doors than we do our windows; we use them more, slam them more, load their thresholds with feet (human, pet, and even piano…), and typically secure them at just one point (the lockset) along their longest dimension. We expect sustained performance and security, and we would like them to have good insulation value and keep drafts out as well.
