WOODCRAFT PERFORMANCE & WARRANTY
Windstorm Approvals for Pre-hung Doors
Most of GlassCraft’s premium Mahogany and Knotty Alder entryways have been evaluated for compliance and are approved for installation in designated catastrophe areas along coastal zones when installed as required and as specified. Both 6’8” tall and 8’0” tall entryways have been assigned Design Pressure “DP” ratings for a variety of entryway configurations, including single doors, double doors, single doors with 1 or 2 sidelites, and entryways with all transom configurations. Both Speakeasy doors and doors with glass have been approved with in-swing and out-swing configurations. These wood doors are not approved for hurricane impact, however many of our FiberCraft Premium Series doors ARE approved for impact. You should inquire with your local building authorities to ascertain the required DP rating for your area. Then visit www.glasscraft.com/testing.asp to determine which doors are available for you.
Look for the WINDSTORM RATED logo (shown at right above) throughout this catalog to see which doors are rated for Windstorm Approval. Be sure to check our online WoodCraft Door Catalog for the most up-to-date approval information.
Warranty for WoodCraft Entry Doors
The exposure to environmental conditions is a dominant factor in the lifespan of a wood door. Not all applications are appropriate for wood doors; wood doors require protection from environmental conditions and must be installed in a protected opening with adequate roof overhang. The minimum roof overhang needed is one in which the roof overhang projects out a distance from the structure no less than one-half of the elevation difference between the bottom edge of the door and the base of the overhang’s highest point above the entryway. For complete installation, finishing and maintenance requirements for your wood door please read GlassCraft’s Guidelines for Your Hardwood Door.
