Aluminum Entrance Doors

Our aluminum entrance doors have set the standard for superior craftsmanship, and they comprise of the following doors: SL-14 Narrow Stile and Rail Door, SL-15 Wide Stile and Rail Door, SL-16 Aluminum Flush Door and the Aluminum Plank Door.

FRP Doors

We have continued to make great strides in perfecting our custom aluminum and FRP Door Systems. The SL-17 FRP Aluminum Door is one of our most popular doors. Initially introduced into the market as the School Door, this door has stood up to the challenge of environments with a high level of abuse. In addition to that it can withstand the effects of hurricanes. Among the advantages of owning this door is the fact that is lightweight and installation is quick and easy. It has a long lasting durable Pebble Grain Finish and a Wood Grain Finish among the many finishes we provide, meaning that there is no need ever to paint the door. It comes with an available factory installed continuous hinge or a flush pull. This door is also fire rated for up to 90 minutes. Among the other perks that come with this door, include a very good thermal rating and an impeccable hurricane rating for this door that in turn mitigates the deleterious effects of hurricanes. It therefore begs the question, "Why would you want any other door?" In addition to that, the door has the option of being installed with aluminum louvers, lites, and mullions.

Fiberglass Entry Doors

Our FRP Doors undergo a pultrusion process which renders the frp doors immune to warping, fading or cracking. The pultrusion process guarantees that our fiberglass exterior doors are second to none when it comes to strength and quality. They will never succumb to rust and being hermetically sealed; they are the perfect choice for laboratories or sterile facilities such as restaurants and hospitals. In addition to that our doors are impervious to graffiti since they will wipe clean and this can be a great asset for schools or public places that experience a high degree of abuse. The AF-100 Door is the only door manufactured using the pultrusion process in an industry-exclusive technique originally pioneered by Universal Pultrusions, LLC. Special-Lite® All-Fiberglass Composite Fiberglass Flush Doors include four models constructed with pultruded FRP stiles and rails and factory bonded face sheets for durability. All models are identical except for the FRP face sheet texture: AF-100 smooth, AF-217 pebble grain, AF-220 sandstone-textured and coming soon - a wood grain option.

Our different entrance doors all facilitate, meet or exceed the demands of architects, engineers, owners, dealers, designers, and contractors. Our doors are the perfect fit for your commercial, governmental, educational, industrial, recreational, or transportation demands. We pride ourselves here at Special-Lite not only as manufacturers but also innovators.
