Therma-Tru Offers Classic-Craft® Craftsman Sidelites

Written by 

Capturing the ongoing popularity of the Craftsman style of design, Therma-Tru Corp. has introduced new 12" and 14" Craftsman sidelites with nine different glass options to complement Craftsman-style home entryways.

“The Craftsman design has proven to be an enduring favorite with homeowners eager to create arts-and-crafts style features in and on their homes,” says Derek Fielding, senior product manager of doors at Therma-Tru Corp. “Our introduction of the new Craftsman-style sidelites allows builders, remodelers, and homeowners to create complete entryway systems with distinct Craftsman-style features. This is another example of how Therma-Tru offers multiple architecturally correct door styles and products to match up with the needs of homeowners.”

Therma-Tru Craftsman-style sidelites are available in the Classic-Craft® American Style Collection™ and Classic-Craft® Canvas Collection™ to complement entryway systems in the same Therma-Tru families. The durable fiberglass sidelites feature hand-crafted embossments, rich panel details, and architecturally correct stiles and rails.

The sidelites in the Therma-Tru American-Style Collection feature a fir-grained texture for staining. Those Craftsman-style sidelites in the Canvas Collection include a smooth surface for ease of painting to complement home interiors and exteriors. The factory-produced, flush-glazed construction of the Classic-Craft Craftsman Sidelites increases durability, strength, and moisture resistance of the units.

The Craftsman-style sidelites are available with nine different glass options, including decorative Hazleton™, Savannah™, Villager™, and Homeward™ (with brushed nickel and black nickel caming); in low E glass; and, in the four privacy glasses of Chord, Chinchilla, Rainglass, and Granite.

“These ENERGY STAR® qualified sidelites deliver a cohesive, whole-house fiberglass solution – a premium front entryway, plus patio and garage-to-home – when the new Classic-Craft Craftsman-style entryways are used in a project alongside Craftsman-inspired products in our Fiber-Classic® and Smooth-Star® product lines,” says Fielding. “This is a designer look that we believe will continue in popularity for many years to come.”
