Sidewalk Doors

Since 1963

Do you need to replace your Galvanized Sidewalk Door?

A galvanized steel sidewalk door is typically used to provide access to a basement or other underground areas. This is the upgraded solution from our standard steel diamond plated sidewalk doors for a longer lasting option. The galvanized steel construction helps provide protection from corrosion and provides a durable, longlasting solution for access to your home or business. 

We have been serving the Continental United States and manufacturing our products in the U.S.A. since 1963! We install Steelway galvanized sidewalk doors to offer you a new entry point into your home or business.

Enhance your property with an additional entrance. Contact Steelway Cellar Doors today at +1-877-553-2610.





3/16: Diamond Plate Door Panels, 1/4” Angle Iron Frame, All Welded Seams Ground Smooth, Primer and Finish Coat of Paint, Additional Locking and Safety Options


Steelway use 1/2” x 1“ bar stock with a 3/8” hinge pin for rugged durability even in the most demanding commercial applications.


Our strong 3” x 3” x 1/4” angle iron frame is welded to our exact dimensions and all the seams are ground smooth for the correct fit and a professional finish that will last for decades.


All Steelway Diamond Plate Doors have a solid smooth steel handle on the right door for easy pull up and no maintenance. We use our recessed Steelway handle whenever possible.

Padlock Tabs

Keeping your access secure is as easy as specifying where you want your padlock tabs. Just tell your salesperson what your locking needs are and we will solve your problem.

Rebar Studs

If this is new construction, we can weld #4 rebar studs under the frame to make the unit is permanently secure.

All our standard doors support 300lb/s.f. live load and are in stock ready for same day shipping.
