Code Compliant Double Exterior Doors


The new window and door building code, known as the North American Fenestration Standard/Specification or NAFS, now requires all entry doors to be tested to the same performance requirements as windows. Exterior doors must meet an air and water penetration resistance rating to be NAFS compliant.

Code Compliant Double Exterior Doors

 

Up until now, performance requirements for exterior doors have been either non-existent or disappointingly minimal. The new code requirements is a huge improvement in our industry, as historically, most doors have been the weak link in the performance of a building.

 

Innotech exterior entry doors have been tested to the new standard and are NAFS compliant. These include single and double inswing or outswing Terrace Swing Doors, single and double inswing Tilt + Turn Doors, and our Tilt + Glide Doors. NAFS is required by the 2012 BC Building Code (2012 BCBC), the 2010 National Building Code and other provincial and municipal building codes.
