Fiberglass vs. Galvanized Steel

Why Fiberglass is Best

  • Will NEVER rust. Completely sealed and impervious to the elements, it will maintain its integrity for the life of the product.
  • Resin-Rich gel coat color is molded into door, frame and accessories, NEVER needs painting. Available in any color.
  • Can be easily repaired in the field. Graffiti wipes right off.
  • Naturally friendly to the environment. Longevity, cleanliness, strength and stability make it a sound choice for a “green tomorrow” and beyond.
  • Perfect for new and existing construction. Every door is custom built to your exact dimensions without the custom charges.
  • Guaranteed for life to withstand any type of corrosive environment: saltwater, chemicals, detergents, chlorine, acids, humidity and more.

Why Galvanized Steel Is NOT

  • Rusts from the inside out. Once rust appears on the outside, the interior of the door has already been severely compromised, possibly causing health and security hazards.
  • Requires continuous maintenance. Will need to be painted at least once during its service life.
  • Ugly scratches and dents can never be removed.
  • Constant painting and replacement are detrimental to the environment. Over a 25 year period, as many as 10 doors could end up in a landfill.
  • Most manufacturers only offer standard sizes. Custom openings mean custom prices.
  • The standard warranty for a galvanized steel door is only 1 year against defects in workmanship and materials and will not cover failure due to corrosive environments.
