Door Anatomy


    1. Brickmould - Decorative moulding used to finish the exterior face of a wood frame.
    2. Tempered glass - Heat-treated for added safety and strength. Two-layered design sandwiches the decorative glass and helps protect it.
    3. Caming - Handcrafted metal that helps decorative glass styles take shape.
    4. Doorlites - Decorative or clear glass assemblies fitted into the door.
    5. Sidelites - Fixed assemblies attached adjacent to the door jamb.
    6. Transom - The decorative or clear glass above the door.
    7. Door Jamb - The wood structure that encloses and supports the entire door assembly.
    8. Hinges - The metal plates on the door and door jamb on which the door swings.
    9. Panel - Embossed or recessed, the decorative section of a door that produces deep shadow lines.
    10. Sill - The horizontal bottom frame of a door.
    11. Weatherstrip - The seal along the edge of the door jamb to keep out air and water infiltration.
    12. Kerfed Door Bottom - Attached at the bottom of the door to help prevent air and water infiltration.
    13. Multi-Point Locking System - Optional upgrade that adds greater security by securing the door to the frame in three places.
    • Polyurethane Foam Core (not shown) - Inside the door panel, offers five times the energy efficiency of wood.
    • Engineered Door Stiles (not shown) - Provides increased structural integrity.
    • Solid Wood Lock Block (not shown) - Provides added strength and security to lock and deadbolt areas.
