Peak Steel Door Performance implies three characteristics: energy efficiency, security and durability. Most door manufacturers are perfectly capable of delivering two out of three. The problem is finding a manufacturer who offers peak performance in every category. Relax… Rusco has the solution.
Steel is an excellent conductor of heat and cold. Regardless of how well a conventional steel door is insulated, conducted heat loss still occurs and money, in the form of higher heating bills, is lost along with it. Rusco® doors have a Patented Thermo Break system that stops conducted heat loss.
Our two heavy steel outer panels are locked together by a vinyl V groove interlocking system providing a positive thermal break. The panels never come into direct contact so neither heat nor cold can be conducted through the door. Between the two panels, immovably bonded to all inner facings, is a rigid featherweight insulation with a density of 2.5 to 3.0 lbs/cubic foot providing an R factor of 13.5 and a U Value of .12.
Our doors lock out more than just the weather. Our steel doors are a thief’s worst nighmare. Our outer panels are 22 gauge steel, cold rolled for flatness and stability, held together by a 14 gauge stabilizing member that is surrounded by a vinyl extrusion (that’s the thermal break, remember). The hinge locations on the steel frame are reinforced with heavy duty 11 gauge steel plates and the hinge screws are locked into steel at both frame and door locations. When combined with a deadbolt lock, these doors are virtually burglar proof
The metal outer panels on most steel doors are simply glued to a thin interior frame. Our steel doors are held together by a V Groove interlock system that locks both steel panels in place. There is no glue to delaminate. Our doors, under normal use, will never come apart – we guarantee it. All Rusco® Doors have a powder coat paint finish that is baked onto the surface of the panel for a far superior finish than any other door system.
