The Anatomy Of A Door That Is Built To Stand The Test Of Time
Anatomy Of A Door
Mechanical Door Sweeps
The anatomy of a door goes beyond just the structural frame, and door blade. Using only top quality hardware is essential in ensuring that your entrance doors will stand the test of time. At ArtFactory.com we use a special heavy duty adjustable pressure mechanical door sweep produced by one of the world's top manufacturers, specifically for our solid wood doors. These sweeps are built with the ability to fit doors that are 3" - 12" thick. These mechanical door sweeps replaces the old fashioned and obsolete rubber drag sweep.
Crush Resistant Threshold
The threshold is a very important element in making sure your door seals perfectly every time. We also offer a heavy duty, crush resistant threshold with adjustable rubber seal ladle. This door hardware should not be confused with ordinary hardware normally found on most production or semi-custom doors. The hardware from ArtFactory.com has been specifically chosen to accommodate our ultimate custom doors and gates.
Dead Bolt Lock
ArtFactory.com has this special heavy duty dead bolt lock produced by one of the world's top lock manufacturers, specifically for our extra thick solid wood doors. This dead bolt lock is built with the ability to fit doors that are 1" - 8" inches thick, without special adapters or breech in strength.
