Shaker (square) sticking is one of the most popular door profiles today. The clean lines and classic look fit a number of architectural styles from Craftsman to Contemporary. In some environments, door professionals have been wary of installing a door with shaker sticking in an exterior application for fear of water pooling on the sticking surface. Simpson’s solution is shaker sticking, with a gently sloped Waterfall™ profile.
This profile allows water to cascade off the sticking and away from the door. And since the slope is moderate, it is hardly visible, resulting in a door that looks as good as it performs.
This new profile comes standard on all 1¾” thick doors that feature ¾” insulated glass (IG). All other doors with shaker sticking will continue to use the Simpson standard square-shaped shaker sticking.
When prepping any type of shaker sticking for finishing, it is recommended that the edge of the sticking be eased slightly with sandpaper, to better encourage water runoff. For full care & finishing instructions, visit simpsondoor.com/care-finishing/.
