While wood doors are sufficient for a vast number of situations, there are times when you need something more substantial for your Charlotte, North Carolina home or business. If your goal is to have optimal security and safety, energy efficiency, longevity, or a door that won’t burn in a fire, call us at Eastway Lock & Key, Inc. to learn about metal doors.
- Security and Safety – It is far harder to bush down metal doors than it is wooden ones and they hold up far better against assaults, not only of the criminal kind but also severe weather. This makes metal doors a wise option if you want a door to stand up to hurricanes and tornado-force winds. Metal doors are also ideal for added security for indoor spaces with contents you need to protect.
- Energy Efficiency – While there are metal doors that are solid metal, the more common option is one that has two plates of steel with a core of high-density polyurethane foam that achieves exceptional thermal resistance, lowering heating and cooling costs when used as an external door. This also means that metal doors are excellent for sound blocking.
- Longevity – Metal doors won’t fall prey to many of the conditions that can shorten the life of a door. Because they outperform other doors, your overall cost of ownership is spread over years, making them a cost-effective option.
- Fire – A traditional wood door will ignite readily in the case of a fire, whereas metal doors can resist anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours, or more.
The metal doors on the market today provide these benefits while also offering many decorative and stylish options and features that make them as beautiful as they are durable.
