Your door should always welcome you home – while playing seamlessly into your style. And with design trends moving toward simplistic looks, EnLitenTM flush-glazed designs from Therma-Tru Corp. are the perfect complement for today’s homes.
Simplified beauty with resilient designs
With clean lines and seamless construction, EnLiten flush-glazed designs effortlessly combine indoor and outdoor living spaces. These doors offer up to a 16 percent increase in visible glass area as compared to conventional lite frames. By maximizing the view, EnLiten flush-glazed designs create an airy, open feeling in the home with larger daylight openings that invite in more natural light than ever.
Combining the sleek looks homeowners want and the stylish around-the-home solutions they need, EnLiten flush-glazed designs eliminate the need for a lite frame and screw plugs, achieving a seamless consistent finish and a simple profile with no added embellishments around the glass. Constructed for long-term performance, double- or triple-pane glass is built directly into the door or sidelite during manufacturing using a high-performance weather seal. This reduces the potential for air and water infiltration, among other benefits.
Flush-glazed glass provides a superior barrier against the elements, resulting in performance you can depend on. Doors with flush-glazed glass do a better job of dampening outside noise compared to a Lip-lite alternative. The low-e glass used in flush-glazed doors delivers a clear view and is 11 percent more energy efficient than ½-inch low-e glass in a Lip-lite frame.1 And, door systems with flush-glazed glass are designed and tested to withstand wind forces up to 167 mph (DP-50).2 (ASTM-E330)
On-trend options for virtually any home
From full-lite openings to Craftsman-lite doors, wood-grained textures or a smooth surface, you’ll find the look you want for virtually any architectural home style. EnLiten flush-glazed designs are available in a wide variety of options for Classic-Craft®, Fiber-Classic® and Smooth-Star® doors and sidelites. These fiberglass doors can bring a home years of durability. Unlike wood, fiberglass will not warp or rot. And, unlike steel, it will not dent or rust. Built with a polyurethane foam core that offers up to four times the insulating R-value of wood3, Therma-Tru fiberglass doors insulate against cold and heat for exceptional energy efficiency.
