Martindale Frames

Our Fiberglass frames will match fiberglass doors to complete a total elegant rich wood look without any of the problems that can occur with wood frames. Composite Fiberglass frame matches the doors.

Fiberglass Frames

An innovative new alternative to traditional wood door frames. After extensive research and development, we have formulated a poly-fiber door frame system that combines all the strength and convenience of wood with enhanced properties that make it moisture, rot and insect resistant, with the added beauty of wood. This unique formulation means that they will not absorb moisture and will never warp, splinter, or rot. And the system can be machined the same way as traditional wood frames with no added hassles. These frames guarantee a long-lasting, rot-free entryway that will maintain its integrity for a lifetime.

Wood Frames

Traditional wood door frames are made of Finger Joint Pine. They are designed to enhance structural properties, reduce warping and ensure years of trouble-free performance.

Aluminum Frames

Designed with the same Finger Joint Pine Frames. Cladded with prefinished heavy extruded aluminum. These frames will ensure a maintenance-free durable exterior finish and will allow any of our vinyl window products to be mulled as sidelites or transoms.


Compression weather stripping around the perimeter of the door jamb, ensures an airtight seal performing twice as well as magnetic weather strip.

Frame members are select kiln dried pine, finger jointed to minimize warping.

Optional extruded aluminum cladding, (available in most popular window colours) eliminates painting of wood frame, and protects wood from deterioration. Mitered clad corners are strengthened with metal cornerlocks.

The aluminum and vinyl sill is thermally broken to eliminate frost transfer.

The adjustable multi fin overlap bottom weather-strip and self-draining sill provide a true barrier against water and air filtration.

Steel faces wrapped around top and bottom edges. Double wrapped around vertical edges for rigidity. Both steel faces are hot dipped galvanized for resistance to rust and corrosion, along with a factory applied primer ready for finish painting.

Continuous wood perimeter provides a thermal break between outside and inside surfaces to eliminate frost and condensation.

Solid polyurethane foam core is injected between two steel facings to fill every air space and permanently bonded to provide outstanding insulation and stability.

Multi-Point Locking System

Featuring a durable and ergonomic design that allows for easy door operation. I-beam construction incorporates greater strength, stiffness and security into the complete lock system.
