Energy-efficient double entry door

Living in Europe one would not have this problem as we have here in the USA; that is finding a good energy-efficient double door.

I need to find a 3'- 0" x 7'- 10" (double door), total 6' width. I can get a French door but I don't want all glass. I am looking for a nice wood door with an EPS core and excellent double or triple gasket sealing capabilities with European hardware and multiple latching mechanisms for tight air sealing.

Any leads?

Intus makes doors, including double doors. They may have too much glass for your taste, however. Here is a link: Intus doors.

You might want to consider Drewexim doors. The U.S. distributor is Fenestrations Plus.

Kohltech too. Our Intus dealer, Maine Green Building Supply, is now repping them as well. DP rating of 100. We're about to order almost the same door (double 2870) from them.
