The days of poorly insulated and drafty entry doors are quickly coming to an end
with the rising popularity of the insulated steel door. Steel door manufacturers
maintain that a storm door is not necessary to keep your home comfortable and even go
as far to void their warranty if one is installed.
Unfortunately, during the warmer months homeowners still crave the features that a
storm door brings by allowing air flow into the house and a view of the outdoors
without allowing insects or other pests entry to their home.
Entrance enclosures are the perfect solution to this problem – they provide all the
benefits of a storm door and much more, all without voiding the steel door warranty!
WHAT ARE ENTRANCE ENCLOSURES?
Many homes have been built with a roof or second floor sheltering the main entrance.
These porch areas typically have one or more openings with either a square or curved
top. Entrance enclosures are custom fabricated glass panels and doors made from 1
3/4" aluminum rail specifically designed to fit into these existing openings.
Even if your home does not have an alcove, you can still have an enclosure! Many of our
independent dealers are able to provide flat and curved glass roofs if there is no
existing overhang. We provide our dealers with all of the components to make angled
sidewalls and arched or curved top window panels.
- Protection from the elements
- Keep the snow and rain away from your entrance
- Added security
- A winter buffer zone keeping heat in and drafts and snow out
- Extra space for boots, coats, plants or people
- Summer ventilation
- No worries about steel door warranties
- Added home value
- A touch of class
Each panel is fastened together with special connector pieces to form a wall. The storm
door (or doors) are mounted to this base providing a doorway. Unlike similar looking 3
season Florida room walls, which are engineered for support strength, our entrance
enclosure systems are designed with slip channels and able to adjust to uneven and
non-square walls and floors which makes for a tight, well-sealed and good looking
Our enclosure system is particularly well suited for curved and angled applications.
Beautiful and functional, complete with operating windows and doors, these enclosures
are a beautiful enhancement to any home!
