Galvanized vs Galvannealed
When specifying doors that are to be exposed to corrosive environments it is important to know all the options available.
Steel doors offer high performance and longevity. In most applications standard cold rolled steel, coated with rust inhibiting primer, will hold up well. When extra protection is needed galvanized steel is a consideration. The steel door industry offers A40, A60 and G90 as typical options.
For harsher conditions you may consider fiberglass which I will cover via a separate post.

SAVE TIME WITH TEK SCREWS
After speaking with customers it became clear that pre-drilling holes to install weatherstripping was not a good use of your time! Now all you need to do is request TEK screws to receive them at no additional cost.
You do need to request them. If you do not specify you want them, your order will be shipped with regular sheet metal screws.
