How We Make the Best Wrought Iron Door
When hurricanes whip through Florida, we all worry about our homes and how they will handle the stress of the high winds and water. We, at Park Avenue Entries, decided to build the strongest (and best looking) door to help put your concerns at ease. Park Avenue Entries engineered and tested the first impact approved door for the state of Florida and Miami-Dade.
In designing the ultimate wrought iron door, Park Avenue Entries
decided on 1”insulated impact rated glass to assure we made
the most energy efficient wrought iron door in the market.
Park Avenue Entries are so strong; we have passed both Florida
and Miami-Dade stringent hurricane impact testing.
To make the easiest operating wrought iron door, we use
6” post-in-barrel hinges that pivot on a sleeve of aircraft
ball bearings. The hinges also come with grease fittings to
maintain the ease of operation.
Our mounting tabs which are concealed behind interior trim, provide an exceptionally strong installation; not unattractive plastic caps used to conceal screws drilled through a door frame.
We invite you to compare our wrought iron doors to all others in the market. As you compare, we are sure you will become convinced that Park Avenue Entries is the only door you will want on your home.
Rather than make our doors with a separate aluminum threshold that is caulked in place after the door is installed, we developed the first and only Florida and Miami-Dade approved wrought iron door that has a hot dipped galvanized threshold welded to the door frame. Our threshold helps keep the door square in the opening and provides greater protection against water infiltration.
