Our name may be Windowcraft, but we do a lot of doors…

Having doors included in a window package has many benefits. There is a continuity of detail, such as glazing stops and brick mould. Heights and sight lines are kept consistent.

Our doors come in many woods, all sizes, shapes, forms and functions.

Windowcraft specializes in both solid panel and glazed doors. The panels can be either flat or raised and with either recessed or raised mouldings. The glazing can be full light, divided, or leaded. Very often panels and glass are combined in the same door.

Doors can be arched or round top, and can be combined with side- lights or transoms to expand the opening.

There are several thresholds available, including hardwood, bronze interlock and aluminum.

The doors can be combined with sidelights, fixed doors, transoms,

Glazed doors could be thought of as windows that you can walk through. Again the designs are endless

The recessed stop is below the face of the door. There are several profiles available, or one can use the glazing stop used in adjacent glass panels, side-lights, or transoms

When size matters…

There are times in architectural design that there is the desire to simply open up a wall to allow for a true connection between interior and exterior spaces.

Pivot Systems

A number of years ago, Windowcraft was presented with a very interesting situation – create five and a half foot wide doors that were capable of being able to open easily, to be held open, and to close in a controlled manner.







Lift and Slide

A lift and slide system is a patio door on “steroids”.

Your typical patio door panel maxes out at four feet whereas a lift and slide panel can be six and a half feet wide. The hardware consists of a handle that can lift the panel and engage a top mounted roller that requires effortless pressure to move it. The panels can be of various woods and glass configurations.


Folding systems

If you think of a closet bi-fold door for a moment – and then expand that image into something spectacular that has the potential of creating openings as wide as forty-eight feet wide by twelve feet high, you have discovered the Eclipse Architectural System.

Eclipse Architectural is a hardware system engineered to facilitate the manufacture of door systems with many configurations of folding and swinging panels. The manufacture of the doors can be of many different woods and glazing materials and styles.
