Anyone know who makes this storm door?


I picked up a nice, 84" tall full view storm door with handle set at a great price($20) from a local resalvager in my attempt to avoid the $500 retail fee for a brand new odd size door. So now I need the zbar, drip rail etc. for installation. I assumed it was an EMCO(Anderson), Pella or Larson, but now I'm not so sure. The door measures 2" thick(depth), which doesn't correlate with the current doors they make.

Anyone have any thoughts on who might make this door? And i can't find a serial number anywhere on the door.....looked everywhere.

Did you check the glass? Most Andersen products have the serial number etched (usually very faintly) in the corner of the glass.

I checked this glass, their is a faint marking but it reads 'Guardian' and appears to be correlated to the glass manufacturer as it also specifies Tempered Glass and ANSI certification.

Probably more important is that i remeasured the door thickness which is 1.5", not 2".....not sure how i mismeasured that one. That should make it a lot easier to find matching zbar and drip edge.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah, Guardian is the name of the glass manufacturer. Can you post a picture of it?
