Today, energy efficiency is more important than ever to both homeowners and builders. As such, JELD-WEN continues to raise the bar on Canadian door standards. The Prairie North American Fenestration Standards (NAFS) is a new entry door system, designed by a team of JELD-WEN engineers. This new door line-up was designed to not only meet, but also exceed the stringent NAFS requirements that have recently been adopted by each province and is referenced by the National Building Code of Canada.
The advantages are extensive. NAFS entry doors are built with no-wick compression weather stripping to give homeowners the tightest seal possible – with no risk of freezing up. The dual-drainage dam sill system and continuously wrapped weather stripping provide superior protection against air or water infiltration. The adjustable sweep with exterior drip edge ensures easy installation, and the 3/4-inch finger joint hemlock frame brings unparalleled structural integrity.
The Western Canadian climate can be unforgiving. However, by adhering to programs like NAFS and ENERGY STAR®, JELD-WEN is able to deliver door products that will perform to the highest standards in the harshest conditions. Any client who values energy efficiency will appreciate being presented with these options, as they’ll provide them with the very best results.
