The door's drip cap prevents water from entering the frame of the EMCO storm door. Water that enters the frame can cause damage to the door. Two EMCO storm door z-bars are located on either side of the door frame. The z-bars can be extended and are designed to fill in any extra space between the frame of the EMCO storm door and the door jambs.

The mullion is a component of the EMCO storm door that is designed to separate the screen of the door into two parts in order to provide structural support for the screen. The retainer kit includes retainer strips and mounting screws that hold the storm door window pane in place.
