Nantucket Door Series from Simpson Doors

When you think of the island of Nantucket, you might picture tasteful cottages, unspoiled beaches and perhaps even a 20 foot great white shark menacing the entire island. When I think of Nantucket, I picture the harsh coastal weather that builders and architects have to consider when choosing building products that will last.

That environment and the need for products that will stand up to the harshest of weather conditions is the inspiration for the Nantucket Series of doors by Simpson.


Simpson has always made doors that last, but the Nantucket Series offers exceptional performance. By combining a unique modified mortise-and-tenon construction technique along with 4 different weather-resistant wood species, Simpson has created a door that will retain its rugged beauty and last for years, regardless of what nature sends its way.


The Nantucket Series is available in beautiful Black Locust, one of the heaviest and hardest woods in North America. Black Locust is highly rot resistant and has been used for years in the toughest exterior applications.

Also available is Nookta Cyprus, sometimes known as Alaskan Yellow Cedar, which offers great texture, uniform color and a straight grain. Sapele Mahogany is an African wood that is both durable and finishes well and with its brownish tones, will stand out in any fine home. Finally in the Natucket Series, is Fir. Fir offers fine grain with clean lines and a warm coloring. Fir also offers excellent stability and they finish well.

In all of the Nantucket Series doors, no matter the species, the tenon and face pins that literally lock the stiles and rails together, will always be made out of Black Locust for exceptional durability.
