The Bilco Classic Series Primed Steel Basement Door (also known as cellar doors) is a door that allows the moving of large items, such as a pool table or heavy furniture, into a finished basement. They are designed to be anchored directly to a masonry areaway and should never be installed on pressure treated or cedar treated lumber. The basement doors are easy to operate due to the gas spring lift assistance that provides a smooth, easy, one-handed operation and prevents the door from slamming. Gas springs are found on the inside of the door and should be installed with the black end up (larger diameter) and the silver end (smaller diameter) on the bottom. Bilco's Classic Series Basement doors create a weathertight seal that sheds water and keeps the areaway dry, free of debris, and prevents binding due to ice and snow.
Please Note: Door must be painted within forty-five (45) days of installation. Bilco recommends using Sherwin-Williams All Surface Enamel A11 Series in a white or light color. For best results, carefully follow the directions on the Sherwin-Williams label and apply one thin coat of paint followed by a second coat on both the exterior and interior primed steel surfaces of the door. Two quarts should be sufficient to coat the entire door.
