Simpson® Nantucket® Collection Doors

Simpson® Nantucket® Collection doors are the toughest wood doors available. All the components of the Nantucket door are solid wood. The stiles and rails utilize a two-piece laminated construction, resulting in a straighter and more stable stile. This article and video portray the standard joinery option available with Nantucket doors.

The Nantucket door is joined with a modified mortise-and-tenon. A large mortise is cut into both the stile and rail. Glue is added to the mortise of the stile and a tenon is inserted.

Pinless Nantucket

Simpson has launched a new option of a Pinless Nantucket door. These doors have the same stile-and-rail construction, but use a taller, grooved tenon that grips the mortise pocket.

With this joinery method, the door looks like a normal door but has the same performance as a Nantucket door. It maintains a 10-year warranty with no overhang required. Reeb will be adding 6 Pinless Nantucket doors along with their accompanying sidelites into stock.
