The torrefaction process makes wood more structurally stable and highly resistant to heat, cold and moisture. Because of the solid wood construction of the doors, there are no veneers or edge strips to delaminate. The 20-year guarantee covers any warping, twisting, delamination or rotting that may occur.
The Torrefied Collection is offered in each of Lemieux’s 10,000 plus residential entry door design options and custom designs. It is available in maximum 4/0 widths and 8/0 heights and in select grade douglas fir, Brazilian mahogany, Appalachian poplar and aspen. Each Torrefied Collection door has matching exterior jambs, brick moulding and T-astragals.
Torrefied Collection doors can also be installed to face direct sunlight and be stained or painted dark tints.
Lemieux Doors subjected its Torrefied Collection of exterior wood doors to rigorous testing for several years. In addition, FP Innovation Forintek Division, Canada’s Wood Products Research Institute and the world’s leading wood component testing lab, also conducted testing to verify the lasting protection provided by the torrefaction process.
