In order to battle the harsh and often unexpected elements Mother Nature dispenses, you need a GUARDIAN. Your Paragon entry door offers the protection of the GUARDIAN™ Weather Barrier System.
Made of the toughest door components available, all engineered to work together, the GUARDIAN system protects your home from weather and weather-related rot and insect damage. The GUARDIAN system also makes your home more comfortable and energy-efficient year-round.
Adjustable oak-look composite threshold allows simple height adjustment to create a perfect seal between the door and threshold eliminating voids or gaps that lead to water or air infiltration.
Specially-designed, patent-pending Leading Edge™ corner pads tuck in behind weatherstripping and use a cutout to create a low pressure cavity that prevents “straw wicking” effect and eliminates associated leaks under stormy conditions.
Tubular bulb and center fin bottom door sweep weather stripping with outer rain fin diverts water away from the door and threshold.
Extended sill elevates jamb to reduce water exposure while anti-wicking wood treatment prevents water wicking.
Durable Q-Lon™ compression weatherstripping creates a perfect, weather-tight seal between the door and the jamb for maximum sealing against air and water infiltration.
High dam threshold features continuous composite base that will not rot or warp. Adjustable composite rail with patented flexible seal interlocks with high dam aluminum sill for an impenetrable barrier between the threshold and the interior of the house.
Rail and nose available in light oak woodgrain or dark brown woodgrain. Aluminum sill available in brass, mill or bronze finishes. Features a five-year warranty.
Features a solid polyurethane core that is five times more energy efficient than wood and is environmentally safe.
Eastern white pine jambs are end treated with anti-wicking barrier to discourage rot and insects and offer better finish quality and durability than typical yellow pine jambs. Features a five-year warranty.
Performance Grade Testing measures the air/water/structural load an entry door withstands when closed and locked. A PG40 rating withstands more than 50% higher water infiltration and structural loads than the industry standard ratings of PG15 and DP15.
