The High Performance Door Built To Save You Energy

Inspired by European design but built for the harsh Canadian winter, the new Novatech High Performance (NHP) door system is an answer to the growing demand for environmentally-friendly product choices. Combining innovative construction, robust design and ease of operation, it’s the perfect solution for your new home or renovation project.


Doors need to hold up to whatever life throws at them. We’ve made the High Performance door thicker and more resistant featuring double the structural integrity. The 2 ¼-inch thick slab is built with 30% more steel making it much more difficult to break through and harder to damage than a traditional door.

  • Up to 2x the structural integrity of a standard door
  • With 30% more steel


Stopping air from coming through the door can go a long way to improving comfort by keeping temperature and humidity levels stable. A weatherstrip surrounds the entire door in an unbroken loop. This seal, inspired by the automotive industry, boosts soundproofing and vastly reduces air infiltration.

  • Up to 4x less air infiltration compared to a standard door
  • Less than 0.13L per second per m2 of air infiltration


Along with its unique airtight seal, the High Performance system is equipped with a second industry-tried-and-tested weatherstrip. The two seals work together to add an additional layer of protection, withstanding up to 540 Pa of pressure in water infiltration tests.

  • Up to 2x more resistant to water infiltration
  • Up to 540Pa in water infiltration resistance

Energy Efficiency

The high-performance door contains ½-in. more insulating foam and is perfectly suited to the installation of triple glazing made with two low-emissivity films offering significantly better energy efficiency than a standard door.

  • DOOR 30% additional insulation
  • DOORGLASS 39% greater thermal resistance


The anodized aluminum-clad sweep is exceptionally durable and elegant while the edges of the door, covered with rigid PVC, protect its structure from the elements extending its life span considerably.

Inkster Park Millwork Ltd. Door Frame System

Inkster Park Millwork has modified its heavy duty door frame and sill system to accept the Novatech NHP door panel and weatherstrip system in order to offer the wider wall thicknesses  required for higher energy efficiency.

Inkster Park Millwork Ltd. has standard doorjamb widths of 4 9/16”, 5 ¼”, 6 9/16”, 7 ¼,” 8 ¼”, and can accommodate optional depths of 9 “, and even 12” walls.  Inkster Park Millwork door frames and sills can also be manufactured in non-standard sizes to accommodate most requirements.  Inkster Park Millwork has adapted the Novatech NHP aluminum clad door sill sweep system to Inkster Park Millwork’s heavy-duty sill system to match Inkster Park Millwork’s wider door frame system.

A Perfect Match
The energy efficiency of the Novatech NHP door panel and weatherstrip system with the tried and true, robust Inkster Park Millwork door frame and sill system in the wider wall thicknesses required for higher energy efficient buildings.

Unmatched Results

The High Performance system is the result of rigorous research and development. Every technical detail has been accounted for and enhanced. The product will set new benchmarks during on-site performance testing and offers the level of comfort and energy efficiency our clients expect. The system also meets the ENERGY STAR standards, even for doorglass up to 22”?×?64”.
