Industry's Best Shed Doors
One of the most abused parts of most storage sheds is the door. Usually the only moving piece, shed doors undergo constant wear and tear, not to mention the occasional firm bump or being blown open by the wind. However, the door is also one of the most important components to any storage shed. Shed doors protect your belongings from weather and theft. Making the door a very important element to consider when shopping for your ideal storage shed.
Although it usually doesn’t present a problem in the first several months, typical storage sheds offer no seal against moisture. Over time and especially in areas with high levels of humidity, moisture will drip through opening in shed doors. This results in the wood or metal, which hold the door in place to be continually exposed to water causing rust, mold, and flexing of floor and door jam. All of which can be catastrophic to your storage shed. In addition to protecting from weather elements, shed doors with a weather seal also protect against pests including ants, wasps, mice, and bats; where typical storage shed doors are left vulnerable. For these reasons we always recommend utilizing a weather sealed door on any storage sheds intended for more than 1 year of use.
Most typical storage sheds feature doors that are mounted to the main structure with screw-on hinges. Even with a padlock, this poses a significant security risk for most shed doors. With a drill or screwdriver, thieves can simply unscrew a shed door, completely removing it in just a matter of seconds. This makes it unwise for anyone to store belongings in a storage shed with an exterior mounted door. The most ideal shed doors include a continuous steel hinge that is mounted inside the shed, with a door handle that does not allow access to the bolt. These features make storage sheds significantly more difficult to burglarize and not only making it a less ideal target, but taking thieves much longer to break into.
Unlike typical storage sheds, which are made of a panel of siding attached to a wood frame. Insulated shed doors feature panels on both sides of the door, insulation padding, and steel frame. This allows for storage sheds equipped with an insulated door to not only maintain a more comfortable temperature year around. But it also makes a much stronger door. Rather than being pierced and broken by a heavy force, insulated doors absorb more of the energy making them more likely to dent. This allows for insulated shed doors to endure mild accidents where a traditional style doors would lose their integrity and ability to protect from weather elements.
