We set out on a journey to develop a new fiberglass entry door and it expanded into a complete philosophy of creating unrivaled efficiency in home building products. We call this new way of thinking enVision. The first creation using the enVision philosophy is Embarq – the doorway to innovation and energy efficiency.
Embarq is the most energy-efficient entry door system in the U.S. market, engineered and produced by the only door company to win the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award for Door Manufacturing. This innovative fiberglass entry door provides a U-factor of 0.10 — the lowest recorded heat conduction measurement for entry doors in the U.S.
We thickened the fiberglass door by 43% to allow for more insulation.
Seals on the door and frame make the door more energy efficient.
Keeps out unwanted elements and uncomfortable temperatures.
Insulation channels in the side rails and header maximizes insulating power.
To enhance efficiency and accommodate more insulation, we thickened the door from the standard 13⁄4″ to 21⁄2″ which is 43% thicker than standard exterior doors. We also engineered a dual perimeter seal to create a superior barrier against drafts and energy leaks.
We engineered a channel in the side rails and header of the door to allow for a larger energy efficient polyurethane core. Our computer controlled process fills every crevice with the foam barrier material resulting in a level of energy efficiency unparalleled in the industry.
We custom designed a sweep to accommodate the Embarq door’s added thickness. This creates a new breed of thermal barrier to keep out unwanted elements and uncomfortable temperatures. One more game-changing innovation from ProVia.
Lock area is reinforced to provide a solid mounting surface for Emtek® hardware.
Our exclusive Bronze Sahara™ heavy-duty extruded threshold has a 23⁄8″ wide thermal barrier wood-look riser that will not warp or rot while providing excellent energy efficiency. On entry systems with sidelites, our continuous threshold improves structural integrity and helps prevent rotting. Also available in Anodized Nickel or Mill finish.
Four heavy-duty ball bearing hinges come standard with every Embarq entry system.
