Endura products introduces THE WORLD’S FIRST “Smart” entry door sill system

Greensboro, NC – November 2012 Endura Products, a door system component manufacturer in Greensboro North Carolina, has announced the introduction of the Z-Series Articulating Cap Sill (ZAC).  Comprised of a patent-pending, spring-loaded sill cap and a custom door bottom, the ZAC is a self-adjusting sill system which overcomes “Real World” conditions. The Z-Series Articulating Cap Sill tagline says it all: the homeowner and our customers can finally”Stop Screwing Around.”


A consistent margin and contact between the sill cap and the door bottom is critical to creating a sealing effect which limits air and water infiltration of the door unit.  Either as a result of door unit assembly practices, door installation, settling of the house or throughout the subsequent use of the door, this seal is often broken.  Although with traditional adjustable sills, the threshold cap can be adjusted to compensate for an uneven subsurface, settling of or sag in the door unit, in practice this adjustment rarely occurs.  By self-adjusting, articulating +/- 1/8-inch under any conditions, the ZAC negates the need for the builder and/or homeowner to monitor and then fine-tune adjust the seal between the sill and the door.  Even more, the ZAC cap and door bottom can be easily retrofitted to any installed Z Series Sill to address problem installations in the field.


Comprehensive Independently Certified Testing has shown that the Design Pressure (DP) ratings of door units that utilize the ZAC are improved by an average of 20% over systems which use standard sills, sometimes even doubling the DP rating depending on the panel and other components.  Even problematic French door applications witnessed up to a 15% improvement, with all French systems tested in conjunction with the Endura Multipoint Astragal achieving a DP rating of 40 or higher.
