At AMICA Windows and Doors Inc., a door isn’t just a door. It’s not just some slab or panel, a door has structural elements that add to and increase the endurance of your entryway.
Anatomy of a Door
Firstly, you have the frame of the door. The frame is made up of three components, the brick mould, the sill, and the jamb. The brick mould is a trim that seals the frame to give you that beautiful finished look as well as provide an air-tight seal. The sill is the threshold, that piece you step over every time you enter into your home. Finally, the jamb is the main piece, the piece that supports and holds up that beautiful door.
Secondly, you have the panel. The panel is made up of the lock block, the core, the skin, and the stiles and rails. The lock block is a piece of wood inside of your door panel that is used for installing all the hardware. The core is the insulating material, this is the material that helps to keep out the elements. The skin refers to the part of the door that is either fiberglass or steel, whichever you have chosen. The stiles and rails are the internal make up of the door. Stiles are vertical slides and rails are top to bottom.
Next, we have the hardware. This includes the hinges, handle, and lock set. Hinges are attached to the jamb which allows your door to open and close with ease. The handle and lock set are what keep the door closed. AMICA Windows and Doors Inc. offers various styles, colors, and designs when it comes to handles and lock sets.
Then comes the weather stripping. Within the umbrella of weather stripping you have the frame weather stripping and the door sweep. The frame weather stripping is the stripping that goes around the frame of the door, whereas the door sweep is that piece of rubber that seals the door panel to the sill.
Lastly, we have lites. Lites refers to the decorative door glass. Some people prefer the solid look while others like to add decorative glass to their doors. Adding glass above the door is called a transom, glass that is built into the door frame is called doorlite, and glass that is beside the door panel is called sidelite.

Excellent From Start to Finish –
I recently needed to replace a sliding door and two windows for my elderly mother in her house. I contacted several well rated companies for quotes, but the response I received from Michael at Amica was exceptional. Michael understood exactly what I needed, provided detailed explanation of the options I could choose from and advised me to look into the current government rebates programs that could help offset the costs. The quote he provided was fair and I am so glad I chose Amica for the project. The installer, George, came to take exact measurements and it did not take too long to have the patio door and the custom size windows to be ready for install. The office kept in touch with me regarding installation process and the installation date and George and his assistant arrived to do the install exactly when scheduled. George did an excellent job installing the patio door and windows and everything was cleaned up before they left. I am generally a very picky customer, but I honestly was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of Georges work. A couple of days later I received a follow up call from the office to make sure I was happy with the final result. I have to say that the entire process starting from talking to Michael to the final install by George restored my belief that great service and pride in ones work still exists! I would definitely use Amica again and would not hesitate for a second recommending them.
