Security and beauty... this door type has rapidly become one of our most popular entrance designs where wide-open natural light is desired. Several of the architectural firms who use Cross Aluminum products in their specifications were looking for a "heavy-duty" stile and rail door that would withstand high volume traffic flow and abuse. The result was our WS-500 series entrance. The fabrication aspect of structural design and engineering is the same as our MS-400 series. The major differences are in the stile width and the face thickness of the extrusions used to manufacture this door type.
  • The extrusion is a 5" wide tubular shape that will provide enough space inside the extrusion to apply mortise locksets and mortise panics.
  • The minimum wall thickness of the face of this extrusion is .187" (3/16"). (A standard stile & rail door fabricated in the aluminum door and storefront industry is .125" or less.)
  • Optional wide stile base & top horizontal rails can vary from 2" to any desired height.
As we have developed and incorporated this line of doors into our portfolio, a major advantage to the consumer has become apparent. Our prices for this extra heavy-duty door has been extremely competitive, even when compared to other manufacturer's standard medium stile storefront doors. So, any time you can purchase twice the structural integrity for the same cost, you've certainly made a wise choice.
