A. Stiles and rails are dovetailed and glued at each corner creating a structurally solid integrated frame.
B. To enhance efficiency and accommodate more insulation, ProVia thickened the door and sidelites from the standard 1-3/4" to 2-1/2" which is 43% thicker than standard exterior doors. They also engineered a dual perimeter seal for the entry door to create a superior barrier against drafts and energy leaks.
C. We engineered a channel in the side rails and header of the door to allow for a larger energy efficient polyurethane core. ProVia's computer-controlled process fills every crevice with the foam barrier material resulting in a level of energy efficiency unparalleled in the industry.
D. ProVia's design works from the inside out to maximize energy savings and reduce thermal loss, resulting in the most energy efficient door in the U.S. market. In fact, this door offers at least 4-times more insulating value than a typical wood door giving an unprecedented U-Factor of 0.09 - the lowest recorded heat conduction measurement for entry doors in the U.S.
E. Door edge is constructed with cherry, mahogany, or oak wood matching the selected series.
F. The 4-1/4" finger-jointed 4-ply harwood strike stile provides a solid mounting surface for Emtek hardware and superior structural integrity.
G. The authentic wood look is made possible by using cutting-edge NVD (Nickel Vapor Deposition) technology by MasterGrain.
H. Scientifically formulated compounds provide superior resistance to denting, splitting, cracking, and warping.
I. The revolutionary DuraFuse Finishing System featuring P3 Fusion yields unprecedented finish durability.
J. Our exclusive Bronze Sahara heavy-duty extruded threshold has a 2-3/8" wide thermal barrier wood-look riser that will not warp or rot while providing excellent energy efficiency. Also available in Anodized Nickel or Mill finish.
K. ProVia custom designed a sweep to accommodate the Embarq door's added thickness. This creates a new breed of thermal barrier to keep out unwanted elements and uncomfortable temperatures.
