Search Tool Definitions

Use the following definitions for an understanding of key fields in the search tool:

CPD
The certified product directory number (CPD Number) for each door/doorglass combination that has been assigned to the door manufacturer. Note: a door pre-hanger who has their own CPD list may have their own unique CPD numbers assigned to each door/doorglass combination.

MPC*
The manufacturer's product code, which describes each unique door glass.

Door Type
A description of the door. The letter/number shown next to the description has been assigned by fenestration officials and is frequently used by industry professionals to distinguish doors from one another.

Glass Series
Refinement of the glass family description.

Spacer
The material that binds panes of glass together to form an insulated glass (IG) unit. Examples include:

  • Box aluminum, single sealed (A1-S)
  • Box aluminum, double sealed (A1-D)
  • Intercept (CU-D)
  • Duraseal (A8-S)
  • Decoseal, single sealed (A5-S)
  • Decoseal, double sealed (A5-D)
  • Superspacer (ZF-D)
  • Cushion Edge (ZF-D)
  • Cardinal XL-Edge (SS-D)

Size
Description of door glass by size of glazing area (1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and full-lites).

Low-E

Description of the type of glass and its unique emissivity performance value. Examples include:

  • None: Clear glass
  • 0.148: AGC EP-S/Custom Select 73 hardcoat Low-E
  • 0.041: AGC TiAC-40/Custom Select 40 softcoat Low-E
  • 0.027: Guardian 71/38 softcoat Low-E
  • 0.037: This is Cardinal 270 softcoat Low-E
  • (2): Describes the surface of the IG to which the Low-E coating is applied. ODL applies the Low-E to surface #2.
  • (3): Describes the surface of the IG which has Low-E on surface #3. This is the case when customers choose to reverse the orientation of our IG.
Grid

There are three options for grilles in door glass:

  • N: No grille, also known as a 1-lite
  • G: Grilles between glass, also known as a GBG or muntins
  • S: Grilles on the exterior surface of the glass

Divider
Describes the width of the GBG or exterior grille:

  • 0.75 is any grille narrower than 1"
  • 1.5 is any grille 1" or wider

Gap 1, Gap 2
The air gap between the panes of glass. Each pane of glass is typically 0.125" thick, so the air gap for a 1" IG with two panes of glass will be approximately 0.750" to 0.760". Impact-rated IG's will have a pane of glass that is approximately 0.340" in addition to a standard pane of 0.125".

U-Factor
Describes the resistance of the door glass to conducting heat and cold through the unit. Lower values have greater insulating qualities.

SHGC
The Solar Heat Gain Coefficient describes the ability of the door glass to block heat caused by sunlight from heating a building's interior:

  • A higher SHGC allows more heat into the building, which is desirable in northern climates
  • A lower SHGC allows less heat into the building, which is desirable in southern climates

 

*A special note about customer-specific jargon shown in the MPC column: Door manufacturers are allowed to write anything they wish in the MPC column and frequently use jargon specific to only that manufacturer. As such, it can be confusing trying to decipher the jargon. Here is a partial list of that jargon with an explanation for each.

Many manufacturers end their descriptions with either W/N, W/T, S/N, S/T, C/N, C/T, etc.

  • The letters W, S, or C describe the type of jamb as Wood, Steel, or Composite.
  • The letters N or T describe the sill as either Thermally Broken or Non-thermally Broken.

JELD-WEN includes many different door constructions within each of their list.

  • They include 3 types of foam within the door as EP (Expanded Poly foam), NP (Neoprene foam), and PU (Polyurethane foam).
  • They include 3 types of stiles within the door as NS (Narrow Stile), WS (Wide Stile) and WSS (Wide Stile w steel reinforcement).
