Now Available with Framesaver® FusionFrame™, from Endura!

Unlike anything else on the market.

Reset your expectations when it comes to the performance and quality of maintenance-free door frames.

The FrameSaver® FusionFrame™ is unlike any other composite frame, delivering exactly what you need and want, even if it didn’t seem possible before.

FusionFrame puts an end to:

BENDING AND BOWING.
Being flexible is great… but when it comes to door frames, you need something that can stand strong, regardless of temperature or install.

DODGING SIDELITE AND HINGED PATIO UNITS.
With a rigid wood core, FusionFrame mulls eliminate concerns with thermal bow while FusionFrame’s unique jamb design allows for concealed installation fasteners, even when the sidelite sash blocks access to the rabbet part of the jamb.

SHIMMING, SHIMMING AND SHIMMING SOME MORE.
Composite frames have their benefits, but installing them? Not so great. No one has time to install shims every foot.

AVOIDING STORM DOORS.
Because FusionFrame is more stable in high temperatures, storm doors are a non-issue.


Why CastleGate Should Be your Top Choice in Exterior Doors

When we say you are getting the best, we fully support that statement. Especially when it comes to the CastleGate Door System.  

Let’s break it down into 3 categories: Ease of installation, cost savings, and overall benefits. 

QUALITY

Every CastleGate unit that comes out of our facility is built by hand. Our industry craftsmen make sure these units are built to the HIGHEST standard. What makes our quality different?

  • Fat Boy Mull Posts and 2” sill horn decks  
  • ALL joints are caulked for ultimate strength and sealing  
  • ALL sills are secured with screws, not staples, for enhanced strength

Along with this quality comes beauty in the form of Masonite’s panel and glass offerings. With over 25 different glass offerings, several door style and textures, the options for beauty and design are virtually limitless!

BENEFITS

The idea of benefits can be broad, and was touched upon in the other 2 categories. So why talk about it as a separate category? Simple, performance benefits were not talked about yet. With the talk about components, cost-savings, etc., it can be assumed that we go above and beyond with performance. 

What performance benefits do we have? 

Thanks to a third-party testing (Click here for the full report) we were able to show that our system outperformed the competition in storm-like conditions.

Our inswing units were able to withstand up to a DP50 (54.1 MPH winds), and the outswing units made it up to a DP65 (62.5 MPH winds). All doors were exposed to 8” of rainfall per hour.

COST

The door system itself may have a slightly higher price tag, but with that you get significantly better components meaning less service calls, less labor needed to fix it, and less likely chance that you will be called about a failure of some kind. 

  • 16.5% of all doors sold require a service call.  
  • 3% will require a follow up service call, after the initial one.  
  • $68.00 gets wasted per door, plus the cost of labor ($50.00/hr on average across the U.S.)  

Common service calls are for things such as water infiltration (damage to frame/flooring inside the home), air leakage (higher costs for the homeowner when it comes to heating and cooling), and rotting due to a poor seal (requiring a new frame be built and installed). 

Thanks to the various Powered By Endura products on this door system, these calls are significantly lessened, if not completely avoided. Meaning, at the end of the day there is more money in your wallet!
