- White Shanty 1/4" Tempered Glass
- High Quality Engineered Wood
- American Steel

Tempered glass is about four times stronger than ordinary glass. It is also significantly safer than ordinary glass due to the unique ability to fracture into small, relatively harmless pieces instead of shattering.
White Shanty American Made Steel:
Not only is our steel locally sourced in the USA, but its intrinsic properties, such as strength, versatility, durability and 100% recyclability allow for improved environmental performance across the entire life cycle of our barn doors. These highly durable doors are resistant to rust, cracking and bowing, which means they last longer. They are also rodent and pest proof, so they will never need treatment for things such as termites or woodworm. Steel doors also offer insulating properties, which could mean lower heating and cooling costs for your home.
Benefits Of Using White Shanty’s Engineered Wood Vs. Solid Wood
Expansion & Contraction
The distinct construction of engineered wood forms a rigid structure that does not gap, buckle, or respond to fluctuations in temperature and humidity. Solid wood fluctuates a lot, and is mostly used for ground level rooms and above, while engineered wood can be installed on any level, including below ground.
Resistance To Moisture
Compared to solid wood, engineered wood has superior resistance to moisture, which makes them more ideal for use in higher or lower than standard humidity levels.
Engineered wood is constructed in such a way that it has enhanced stability and slightly more resistance to daily wear and tear and buckling.
Rigid core engineered wood is waterproof and a thick wear layer makes it scratch-resistant.
Engineered wood is dimensionally more stable compared to solid wood.
Choosing engineered wood over solid wood helps to conserve expensively priced timber. For every 1 square foot of ¾ inch thick solid wood, you can manufacture around 4 times that amount into engineered wood by utilizing organic materials.
