Door frames are one-inch thick, tubular extruded aluminum for strength and durability. Stamped steel corner reinforcement gussets are used at the frame corners for extra rigidity.
Doors are factory pre-hung in a heavy extruded aluminum frame, designed for long service life and easy installation.
Four concealed bronze oilite bearing hinges are standard. These self lubricating hinges with machined aluminum pin are enclosed in a tubular extruded aluminum hinge leaf for years of trouble free performance. This time-tested hinge design is the same as that used on West's line of heavy one-inch wood core storm doors.
Quality aluminum screen cloth in all screens.
Wool pile weatherstripping is used around the perimeter of the hinge frame. Two rubber sill sweeps are used at the door bottom to help seal out drafts. The door's bottom expander is fully adjustable for a perfect fit.
Standard hardware includes pushbutton latch, closer, and storm chain, all in black painted finish.
Painted finishes on door and frame are an electrostatically applied enamel, which is durable and long lasting.
Model 50-EL The model 50-EL Storm Door is the workhorse of our aluminum storm door line. The 50-EL features a stationary top glass and a bottom sash which can be raised for ventilation. When a self storing storm door is required, the 50-EL is the obvious choice.
Model 50-HL The model 50-HL (High Lite) Self Storing Storm Door has a larger top glass for a pleasing asymmetrical look, and is perfect for protecting primary doors that have a lowered lock rail. The top glass is stationary while the bottom sash raises for ventilation.
Model 51-EL The model 51-EL (Even Lite) Storm Door has two interchangeable inserts, making it easily convertible from a storm door to a screen door. The heavy extruded aluminum center bar makes the 51 series storm doors very strong and rigid.
Model 52-S The model 52-S Screen Door is a great choice when ventilation is desired in situations that preclude the use of a storm door. The single screen insert can be removed for re-screening if necessary.
Model 53-42 The model 53-42 Self Storing Storm Door offers all the advantages of our three-track storm window in a storm door. The ability to ventilate from the top is an important feature in situations where the bottom half of the door may be exposed to blowing rain.
Model 53-40 A perfect companion to our model 40 Storm Window, the 53-40 Self Storing Storm Door is easily converted from a storm to a screen door by simply removing the sashes. The full screen is also easily removed for re-screening if necessary.
Model 51-HL The model 51-HL (High Lite) Storm Door has the same great features as the 51-EL, but is designed with a larger top panel for primary doors with a lowered lock rail.
Model 51 S-EL The model 51S-EL Screen Door has the same heavy extruded aluminum center bar used in the 51 series storm door, making it one of the strongest screen doors available. Two screen inserts are easily removed in case they ever need re-screening.

The 52 has a small bottom kickplate to complete the traditional look. (Shown with optional 52-D brass look upgrade package.)
Model 55 The rustic look of the model 55 Crossbuck Storm Door makes it perfectly appropriate on many styles of architecture, such as log homes, brick ranches, and farmhouse style homes. The interchangeable sash and screen offer added flexibility.
Model 58 Often, ornate primary entrance doors are exposed to the elements because the homeowner doesn't want the view of the door obscured. Enter the model 58 Full View Storm Door. The low profile design of the model 58 maximizes the available glass area, making it the perfect choice to showcase, and at the same time protect, expensive entrance doors.
