Inswing Exterior Doors
Featuring precision joinery and exceptional attention to detail, our inswing exterior doors are works of art. These inswing doors deliver the impact resistance, thermal integrity and unrivaled beauty that our architects’ visions require. Made in a variety of wood species and with simple-to-operate Duratherm hardware, our inswing exterior doors can accommodate almost any opening size.

Most commercial hardware can be incorporated into our door panels, including flush bolts, exit devices (rim, mortise, surface vertical rod and concealed vertical rod), door closers, electric strikes, and others.
NOTE: Some hardware installations may require modifications to door leaf or frame detailing, such as concealed closers and meeting rail weather-strip at concealed vertical rod assemblies. Contact factory for assistance. Hardware must be suitable for our standard 2 1/4” leaf thickness.
Screen doors, astragals, ADA-compliant metal thresholds
All glazing is per project specifications. Duratherm can accommodate most configurations and make-ups from 1/8" single glazed to a maximum of 1" security glass.
Clear glass opening: Unit height minus 15 1/2", unit width minus 12".
Continuous extruded silicone flap gasket set in rebate in door frame around perimeter of door panel. Engaging the multi-latchpoint espagnolettes (standard hardware) compresses the weather-strip to ensure a tight seal.
The minimums and maximums shown are intended as guidelines. For applications that exceed these ranges, please contact the factory for assistance.
NOTE: Standard wood threshold may not meet ADA maximum height requirements. Doors that are not able to open a full 180° may need to increase in width.
Consult factory with specific clearance questions
Frame Depths/Leaf Thickness
* Contact factory for frame depths less than 6¼".
NOTE: When screen doors are specified, handle clearances must be considered when determining appropriate frame depths.

Wood Species & Finishes
Duratherm sources all materials by project — from only providers we know and trust. Many of our woods are from Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC- C108949) certified sources. We obtain others from sustainably harvested plantations. Fourteen domestic and exotic wood species offer a wide range of colors, grains, and textures.
Please contact us for information about finishing options (including paint, Sikkens, clear lacquer, stain, bleach stain, oil, etc.) and to discuss the use of a species not in our standard offering. We consider availability, durability, machining, and gluing characteristics to determine the feasibility of your choices.

Inswing Door Details
Specially developed extruded silicone gasket sets the glass by compression. Our proprietary system is long-lived, low maintenance and warer resistant.
Our special silicone wet glazing compound bonds to the glass for long-lived sealing. Plus, our continuous extruded silicone weatherstrip runs around the frame perimeter and the seal is not compromised by seasonal expansion and contractions of the sash and frame.
