MCCLEARY, Wash., May 15, 2012 — Simpson® Door Company has expanded its Nantucket® Collection exterior wood doors to include Douglas Fir and Sapele Mahogany, adding to the existing Black Locust and Nootka Cypress options. Simpson Nantucket Collection wood doors are an award-winning combination of historic charm and modern technology. Named Window & Door magazine's 2011 "Most Innovative Door," Nantucket Collection wood doors are made to endure demanding climates and will maintain their allure long after installation. Multiple door designs and wood species make the collection a fit for any architectural style and budget. www.simpsondoor.com

Simpson manufactures the Nantucket Collection using two-piece laminated stile and rail construction with a modified mortise-and-tenon joinery technique for superior performance. The tenons and face-driven pins are always made of Black Locust, a hearty wood suitable for the worst of Mother Nature. The pins give the doors an eye-catching aesthetic, while helping to eliminate stile and rail separation.

Sapele Mahogany, Black Locust and Nootka Cypress doors come with a 10-year limited warranty. Nantucket doors in Douglas Fir have a 5-year warranty. The Nantucket Collection warranties do not require the doors to be installed under a building overhang.

With a ribbon grain and reddish-brown color, the new Sapele Mahogany doors complement a variety of high-end traditional and modern looks. The new Douglas Fir doors offer a tight, vertical grain and a classic aesthetic that accents any design where the warm coloring of wood is desired. The Nootka Cypress doors have a fine grain and honey color, while Black Locust offers a distinctive wild grain pattern and rustic charm.

"Nantucket Collection doors have had a great reception among homeowners, builders and architects," said Brad Loveless, Marketing and Product Development manager for Simpson Door Company. "They increase the applications for which beautiful, natural wood doors can be used, as they don't require an overhang to maintain their warranty, and are designed to last. The way they are constructed simply makes a better performing door. With these new, more common wood species we're able to offer the Nantucket collection to a wider range of tastes and budgets."
