Simpson Door Expands Door Collections

Simpson Door Co. expanded two of its door lines, the Redi-Prime interior door collection and Nantucket Collection.

Simpson Redi-Prime now includes clipped corner doors, where the top corner ships pre-cut at an angle for a custom fit for applications that cannot accommodate a standard, square-topped interior door. 

Redi-Prime doors pair the Simpson wood door method of construction with MDF veneers on classic stile and rail surfaces; it has solid MDF panels and a premium priming process. This specialized design solution is well-suited for renovations of historic homes and atypical applications with sloped ceilings, including attics, basements and the space beneath stairwells, according to the company.

"Given the heightened emphasis on home improvement, it's no surprise that customers are more carefully considering the finishing touches of every room throughout the house," says Brad Loveless, marketing and product development manager for Simpson Door. "Our latest addition to the Redi-Prime lineup of interior painted doors makes it easy to bring a high-end, finished look to any living space—no matter the shape or size of the doorway. With this creative design solution, customers can transform a forgotten attic space into a master suite or a home office while maintaining design continuity with the rest of the house."

Redi-Prime Clipped Corner Doors, which are factory double-primed and sanded, are available in any width or height and the clipped corner can be customized. 

Simpson Door also expanded its Nantucket Collection to include an option with no face pins.  

The mortise-and-tenon construction method applied to the Nantucket Collection has historically used face-driven pins, which nixes stile and rail separation. Now available with optional joinery, the newest addition to the collection features a grooved grip tenon that bites into the mortise to provide a secure, airtight assembly with no face pins. In application, the expanded crop of doors deliver the premium performance benefits the Nantucket Collection is recognized for all without a visible face pin. 

Nantucket Collection doors do not require a building overhang to maintain their 10-year warranty.

"With customers collectively spending more time at home, it makes sense that many are recognizing the critical role a front door plays in how a home looks, feels and functions," says Loveless. "The expanded Nantucket Collection makes it possible to create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living spaces without sacrificing the craftsmanship and durability that customers expect from Simpson. Now that we've added an option without pins, customers can bring design continuity to both spaces and enjoy the custom-made look of a Simpson wood door."

Nantucket Collection doors can be customized to accommodate a range of desired design aesthetics and budgets. Customers can choose from four wood species options, including Douglas Fir, Sapele Mahogany, Nootka Cypress and Western Hemlock.
