Advantages of Steel Doors

There are plenty of different advantages besides energy efficiency and security that come alongside commercial and residential steel doors. If you are going to make an investment for your home or business, you should know all of the ins and outs. Here are a few more of the advantages steel doors provide for you: 

Noise Reduction 

Usually, an advantage for businesses the produce a lot of noise or where an area that needs to be absolutely quite all of the time is needed; you should consider installing steel doors. These doors are made out of a hollow metal, which creates and significant noise barrier. Steel doors have the best Sound Transmission Coefficient (SCT) rating compared to any other material of doors. So don’t look for special soundproof doors; just look at steel doors. Especially with AR-BE, the steel doors that we boast are the highest quality available on the market. 


You may look at a building with a steel door and think to yourself, wow, that is boring. A very common misconception is that all steel doors are just boring pieces of grey metal.

Longevity & Durability 

We understand that no business or homeowner ever goes a day without opening and closing their door at least once. Especially in commercial buildings such as schools, hospitals, and stores where they experience a heavier amount of traffic per day, your doors need to be durable and reliable through every moment of the day. The longevity of steel is incomparable to other doors and often outlive them by years. Steel will never rot, crack or warp to the elements, something that residences and commercial buildings need in their corner, especially with the changing Illinois climate. Also, the need for maintenance is very low for steel doors due to the fact that it is not easily affected by high traffic and tough weather. If you want a door that you can rely on and one where maintenance will not be an issue, then steel doors with AR-BE are the way to go. 


The cost of steel doors is a bit more on the high side than regular doors, but that initial payment should not scare you away from investing in them. Though they are a bit more expensive than other doors, they are reasonably affordable, considering the protection and reliability you get out of them.  

Also, you need to remember about the silent killer, maintenance costs. When thinking about the number of fixes and replacements you need to complete on a regular door; you are saving a lot of money with steel doors. Not to mention all of the extra benefits you get with them (long lifespan, peace of mind, security, and energy-efficiency) 

Steel Doors Provide Optimum Security

Energy Efficiency

AR-BE steel doors provide the kind of energy efficiency that can really contribute to lower home heating and cooling costs.  Each door has a solid high density polyurethane core resulting in an R-15.2 insulating value for doors without glass.  That’s five times better than wood doors and up to twice the R-value of many competitive steel doors.  Castlegate doors are the only steel edge doors with a true thermal break.  A vinyl extrusion locks the steel skins together, but separates the exterior skin from the interior skin, eliminating the transfer of heat of cold through the steel skins.


Perimeter Weatherstripping

Our standard is TPE magnetic weatherstrip sealing the head and strike sides with foam filled compression weatherstrip on the hinge side.


Triple Contact Bottom Sweep

Twin compression bulbs and an extruded vinyl “blade” mate with the adjustable threshold to seal the door bottom.  Helps eliminate drafts, leaks and ice build-up.



As an option compressible foam filled weatherstrip is available for the head and sides.

Exceptional Lead Time & Packaging

Albany Door Company’s normal lead time is easy to remember.  We call it 1, 2, 3.  In most instances, primed doors are delivered in less than one week, two weeks on painted doors and three weeks for stained doors.

All pre-finished doors are boxed to assure they get to the job in excellent condition.  Replacement doors literally float on foam blocks inside the box while new construction doors are protected by the jambs.  Everything is included to help make your job go smoothly.
