Our thermal break technology separates the inside & outside surfaces of the steel with composite material throughout the door, glass, & frame which protects the inside of the door from the cold temperature on the outside of the door
This results in the inside & outside of the door being thermally separated or "broken" which provides greater improvement in insulation
Below is a U.S. map with "frost line" as defined by state. States in blue typically have harsher winters and are therefore classified as cold climate states.

WARRANTY / DISCLAIMER
Liability Limitation - Our express limited warranty sets forth our maximum liability for our products. No one is authorized to modify or expand this express limited warranty. The absolute limit of our liability is the product purchase price from Black Diamond Iron Doors. We shall not be liable for special, indirect, consequential, incidental, or punitive damages of any kind and all such claims are waived to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law. Your sole or exclusive remedy with respect to any and all losses and damages resulting from any cause whatsoever as specified herein.
Cold Weather – Iron doors are made of steel and are subject to possible thermal transfer, which could result in condensation build up on the interior portion of the door during extremely cold time periods.
Metal is a poor conductor by nature. When the temperature varies greatly between the inside vs. outside of the home - foam is not a sufficient barrier, and a thermal barrier will be needed so that the cold will not transfer from the outside of the home in.
We recommend purchasing a thermally broken door in areas where the temperature can vary greatly to prevent heat transfer and condensation from occurring inside the home.
During the winter months when there are sustained periods of extreme cold, when temperatures drop below the 25-degree threshold, is when you may notice the above stated thermal transfer. While many factors effect energy efficiency, it is always best to check with your contractor about building codes in your specific area.
Black Diamond Iron Doors offers no warranty as to the suitability of using this product in a cold climate. Condensation and frosting are possible and in fact likely to occur when installed in cold climates.
Sidelights & Transoms - All Doors with knockdown sidelights and/or transoms come un-assembled and may require holes to be drilled to complete installation. Holes may need to be drilled through metal on door jamb and/or sidelight. Doors, jambs, sidelights and/or transoms may come with pre-drilled holes that may not be required to use, instead, new holes may be required to be made by the installer to complete the installation. Will need to be sealed with silicon before assembly. Title and risk of loss to products passes to Buyer on shipment from our facility or the date that storage fees start. Loss or damage that occurs after title of product passes to the buyer is the responsibility of the Buyer. Designs may alter or change if a screen is added to the door or order (this is most commonly the case with doors with knuckles).
Clearance - All Black Diamond Iron Doors clearance products are sold "as is" and as such Black Diamond Iron Doors disclaims any and all implied warranties. We make no other warranty or guarantee, either express or implied, including implied warranties of merchantability and of fitness for a particular purpose to the original purchaser or to any subsequent user of the product, except as expressly contained herein. The entire risk as to the quality and performance of the goods is with the buyer. In the event state or provincial law precludes exclusion or limitation of implied warranties, the duration of any such warranties shall be no longer than, and the time and manner of presenting any claim thereon shall be the same as, that provided in the express warranty stated herein.

LTL Truck Deliveries
We charge a flat rate of shipping per order, based on location. For multiple door orders, please contact us for a better shipping rate. Truck deliveries are shipped via LTL common carrier. At Black Diamond Iron Doors, we do everything in our power to ensure that we deliver your products in the shortest time and at the best rate available.
Please note that as the customer, you are solely responsible for any costs or fees (including but not limited to storage and re-delivery) that is a result of the inability to take the delivery on the date and time it has been scheduled. The shipping company will contact the customer directly in order to schedule the delivery. For your convenience, a tracking number and any other delivery information will be given to you once your order ships from Black Diamond Iron Doors. After your approval for shipment, if for any reason you cannot accept delivery of the door, you will be responsible for any storage fees charged by the shipping company. Black Diamond Iron Doors will not be able to authorize your delivery without collecting those storage fees in advance.
Black Diamond Iron Doors will include a lift-gate on the shipment. Deliveries will require you to have a minimum of 3-4 able bodied persons on site to offload. While the shipping company may be able to use the lift gate, it is against LTL Safety Guidelines for them to operate a lift gate if there is any overhang. Most of our products are longer than any standard lift gate, which is why you will need three able bodied persons on site to offload from inside the truck in the event that the driver does not feel comfortable operating the lift gate. It is the customer's responsibility to have enough assistance to disassemble the crate and take the product to the designated area. Please note that this is a physical job for more than two people in good physical shape.
ALL LTL DELIVERIES WILL BE CURBSIDE AND WILL NOT DELIVER UP A DRIVEWAY OR IN A GARAGE. It is the customers responsibility to safely transport the package from the curb to the place of storage which is why we recommend having 2-3 people to help unload.
**IMPORTANT** Delivery Restrictions May Apply If Streets Are:
If this is the case, the customer or builder may pick up the unit from the carrier’s terminal in which the carrier will load the buyer’s vehicle.
Black Diamond Iron Doors is responsible for making direct payments to the shipping and delivery vendors.
For your convenience, a tracking number and any other delivery information will be given to you once your order ships from Black Diamond Iron Doors.
Flat Bed / Trailer Deliveries: If multiple doors are being shipped and require more than 2 pallets when shipping via LTL freight, a flatbed may be the required form of shipment. With flatbed orders, a representative will contact you via phone or email to discuss the process before having the order picked up. A forklift may be required to unload which is the sole responsibility of the customer.
There is no set date/time for flatbed deliveries. It is your responsibility to make sure you are there for offload at the time the driver arrives. You will have 30-45 minutes to offload your order. Most of our doors require 2-3 (sometimes 4) able bodied persons to lift and remove doors and frames from the flatbed. For larger orders, please make sure you have more manpower in order to offload within the time limits. Black Diamond Iron Doors is not liable for any charges that may occur due to non adherence to the above information.
