The new Four Square exterior wood door and two new design features expand choices for Simpson's Craftsman Collection.

Simpson Door Company’s popular Craftsman Collection combines elegant decorative glass options with wood stile-and-rail construction, creating timeless entry doors that complement a wide range of architectural styles. With a new door option - Four Square™ - and two new design features, customers have more to choose from when it comes to finding the right Craftsman door for their home.

The Four Square exterior door offers a unique, new Arts and Crafts style glass pattern that incorporates an array of clear glass textures within an asymmetrical design set apart by black caming. Four Square doors are available with one, two or three flat panels, and can be ordered in multiple heights, widths and wood species. A matching transom and sidelights create a complete entry system.

For one- and two-panel Craftsman doors, customers now have the choice of either a straight or arched middle rail. The middle rail is the horizontal wood component that separates the glass in the door from the wood panels below. While traditionally straight on both sides, the new “arched rail” features a curved bottom, creating an eye-catching arc at the top of the door’s panel(s).

The “wedge mutt,” another new option for two-panel Craftsman doors, offers an alternative design for the vertical divider between panels (known as a mutton). The wedge mutt is thinnest at the top where it meets the middle rail and gradually gets thicker as it reaches the bottom rail.

“The difference with our doors is in the details,” says Brad Loveless, Marketing and Product Development manager for Simpson Door Company. “We understand that everything from the color of the caming in decorative glass to the number and type of panels in a door is important and we want to make sure we give homeowners a good selection of design options to ensure they get exactly what they want in a door.”
