Classic Series (Steel)
Classic Series basement doors feature a patented gas spring lift assistance for improved operation and a slide bolt locking mechanism with optional keyed lock kit. The flanged construction and J-channel header shed water and prevent binding from ice and snow, providing superior performance all year long.
Two Finish Options
Choose from a primer or powder coat finish. The baked-on Sherwin Williams primer provides a durable base that’s ready for finish paint. The powder coat finish features a polyester resin that provides a durable, weather-resistant coating. The powder coat is cured at higher temperatures than most wet coatings, resulting in a tougher and chip-resistant coating that provides both a decorative and protective finish.
Classic Series SLW (Steel)
