Great question! I have no idea how the doors would fare in direct sunlight - probably not very well. Shellac is not a sunblocking finish, to my knowledge anyway.

My greatest fear with these doors is wet fingers and that is probably not anything to worry about. They will both have nice brass pulls which is where most or all of the door touching will occur.

The good news is that these doors face South so they never get direct sunlight. However, this December 21st (winter solstice) I plan to pay close attention to the possibility that they will get direct sunlight as the sun is at its lowest point over the Southern horizon. I'm sure you know all of this, but I truly never gave this much thought.

Thanks for the great gotcha question.
