Steel doors rust?
Short answer, yes. All types of doors do aging: such as wood, aluminum, fiberglass, or steel. But steel is by far the longest-lasting. Steel alone without protection lasts 50 years. Bondo, primer, and automotive paint are applied to protect the steel. For more demanding customers we have the stainless steel option available.
Is it single-pane or double-pane glass?
Rhino offers single pane only for interior doors, but can be on the exterior doors if you require it. The Rhino standard for exterior doors is insulated (dual pane) tempered glass and is included in the proposal in the previous email. If required Rhino also offers impact-resistant laminated glass which gives climate improvement plus more security and noise reduction, than standard dual pane glass.
If the glass were to get broken would a local glass shop be able to replace the glass door?
Yes, Rhino doors come with a screwed glass holder on the interior part of the door, if the glass needs to be replaced, just need to remove the cover plugs, remove the screws, the glass holder frame, and then the glass. But, this needs to be made by a glass professional.
Rhino can also provide you with just the steel door with no glass, and you can buy it from a local provider. Advantages: lead time is reduced, you save on the manufacturing of the door, and you save on shipping.
