Plastpro Doors and Door Frames

Plastpro is the leader in fiberglass exterior entry doors that will not rot over time.  The doors have fiberglass composite on ALL 6 sides including the top and bottom edges.  The fiberglass door frame wraps the entire door frame, not just 6-8 inches from the bottom.  This ensures a strong not rot door frame overall.

Plastpro full length lockblock

Plastpro doors have strength built into them. Notice the full length lock block on the leading edge.  All other manufacturers offer “extended lockblocks” 10-16″ at best.  This does not offer support or strength at your entryway.  This is one major difference the consumer cannot see with visual inspection. Remember, the lock block (or stile) is hidden behind the exterior fiberglass edge.

Refer to the sliding images above to illustrate this feature of Plastpro doors or watch this video that explains difference between Plastpro and other door manufacturers.

Thresholds

We provide aluminum mill thresholds with fiberglass composite full length.  Fiberglass threshold support will never attract termites and will offer support when weight is applied.  Many thresholds have no  support so flexing and bending would be an issue.  Others have pine support which wicks moisture from concrete and attracts termites.And once termites find a food and water source they can searchhigher into walls and rafters.
