Masonite Performance Door System designed to outperform traditional deadbolts


Masonite International Corporation, has announced the Masonite Performance Door System with M-Protect Multipoint Security Lock. The Florida-based manufacturer asserts this new innovative exterior door system offers homeowners high levels of protection, with four times more impact resistance than standard deadbolt locks as confirmed by certified third-party testing.

“Masonite M-Protect has surpassed the highest level of industry tests for security,” says Chris Ball, president, global residential, Masonite. “I can’t imagine anything more important than protecting what matters most to the people who walk through our doors every day. It is at the very heart of Doors That Do More.”

Masonite emphasises that its M-Protect offers the added strength of a multi-point lock with the ease of standard deadbolt operation. The company points out the product is compatible with a wide array of handlesets and off-the-shelf hardware including electronic deadbolts from many of today’s popular brands. M-Protect, Masonite claims, serves as a vital security enhancement to the Masonite Performance Door System, which is proven to be 64% more effective at keeping air and water out than the leading competitor.

The Masonite Performance Door System with M-Protect Multipoint Security Lock is a premium option available with all Masonite exterior fibreglass doors, which include a range of designs, finishes, colours, and glass styles. M-Protect is currently available through select Masonite distribution partners and will be offered in home improvement retail stores across the U.S. and Canada beginning this spring
