Prefinished Doors and Frames

Lasting Weather Resistant Finishes

Avoid dealing with onsite painting by specifying prefinished doors and frames. These commercial-grade finishes comply with ANSI/SDI A250.3, assuring a minimum level of weather resistance and adhesion. Prefinished doors and frames are painted in a dust-free, environmentally-controlled setting for a quality coating with consistent adhesion.

With onsite painting, you have to deal with VOC emissions and cross your fingers that you get a good painter. Specifying prefinished doors and frames can be a good way to eliminate prep time at the jobsite and ensure a durable and striking finish.


SDI has developed a variety of resources for architects, specifiers and distributors on prefinished doors below.
