Masonite International Corporation, the global designer, manufacturer, and distributor of interior and exterior doors, has introduced the Masonite Performance Door System.
The system is Masonite’s latest innovation in exterior door systems and is 64% better at keeping air and water out than the leading competitor, the Tampa, Fla.-based company said. The statistic is based on certified third-party testing, according to Masonite.
"The new Masonite Performance Door System is proven to withstand the elements and is backed by a 10-year limited full-replacement warranty,” said Chris Ball, president, Global Residential at Masonite. “This means builders and homeowners can be confident that their Masonite door will keep air and water out while adding value and beauty to the home. It is one of the many ways that we are delivering on our promise of ‘Doors That Do More’.”
The Masonite Performance Door System features the company’s industry-leading 4-Point Performance Seal, which includes Premium Square Edge Fiberglass Doors, Endura Products’ Z- Articulating Cap Sill, PE650 Weatherstripping, Simple Solution Corner Pads, and FrameSaver rot-proof door frame.
Optional upgrades include Endura’s award-winning PanoLock or Trilenniummultipoint locks and FusionFrame. The System is offered with all Masonite exterior fiberglass doors, which are available in a variety of styles, colors, and finishes, including multiple glass options.
The System will also be offered with three new Shaker-style recessed panel designs, Lincoln Park, Logan, and Winslow Flush Glazed, available for order beginning July 15. These designs complement the popular Masonite interior doors with the same names, offering builders and homeowners a whole-home product portfolio.
The Masonite Performance Door System is currently offered by select Masonite distributors, with additional distributor and dealer availability expected later this year.
