Captiva Wood Doors


Door construction, unless specified differently shall include a stave core method that uses a laminated stable wood core sandwiched between veneers. Captiva Traditional Doors use 1/4" solid veneers on all stiles and rails with matching edges to help prevent warp or distortion. Captiva Select Doors use laminated stable wood cores sandwiched between 1/8" veneers. A unique “beaded tenon” inserted by hand is used instead of dowels creating a similar mortise and tenon connection on all stiles and rails. All raised panels used in both methods shall be manufactured using double panel technology, which virtually eliminates cracking panels by allowing independent movement. Both types of construction are time tested methods and backed by our full warranties.

Multi-lite doors, as true divided lite (TDL), available in Captiva Traditional or Select, with 1/8" single pane, 5/8" IG glass, or 5/8" Low E glass and wood stops applied to the exterior. Muntin bar widths are 1", 1-1/8", and 1-3/8". Simulated divided light (SDL) with 7/8" SDL bar, and 11/16" duplex muntins. Wood bars applied to both faces of door with the loose stop toward the exterior. SDL is available in Captiva Select doors only.
