Steel Doors Used In Bathroom Shower Enclosure and Sauna Room

Portella steel doors were used in this contemporary bathroom remodel.  The narrow steel profile and large expanse TDL (true divided lights) of glass help to give the room and open airy feeling.  Steel door and fixed sidelite opening into the steam shower provides a long term solution to humid environment and creates a larger visual of the relative small space.
Portella's thermally bonded galvanizing proces provides a 20 year min corrosive protection.  Units can be either painted or natural patina finished.

Steel & Glass Pivot Door with Sidelites and Transom - Dallas Texas

This oversized entry manufactured by Portella illustrates our proprietary narrow sight line profiles and incorporates a pivot door in the center of two equal size sidelites and transom above.  We have engineered our pivot system to withstand the heavy weight of solid steel structure and insulated glass.  The bottom door rail and top rail contain a portion of the pivot components.  These structures have been designed by Portella Engineers to allow very narrow top rails and bottom rails on pivot doors.

Steel Doors Update Dallas Home


Steel doors were used on this Dallas Texas residence to give a contemporary update to an older home.  Portella is one of the only U.S. steel window/door manufacturers to deliver a fully glazed product.  Our glass is factory installed eliminating field glazing.

This photo shows our bevel glazing profile.  Smooth, crisp applied wet glazing technique eliminates un-sightly metal retention strips.  Deep glazing pockets replicate original steel window design.
