Pintle Hinge Door
Front Entry with Sidelights
This pintle hinge door was crafted using an antique door, sections from an antique door surround and salvaged lumber. It features sidelights with shutters, an operable shutter in the door and an arched accent on the front of the door. Measuring 8.5′ tall by 10′ wide, it is a grand entrance. Hardware for the completed door includes custom-forged grillwork, clavos, a cast entry set and dead bolt with round key flap. When the door is installed it will have a jamb into which the sidelights will be inserted, bringing them even with the height of the door.
