Before You Place Your Special-Lite Order, Check Our Configuration Sheets to Save Time and Money

Many important details are needed before your Special-Lite door or frame is custom-built and ships to your job site. This is especially true with fire-rated, blast-rated, bullet-resistant, and hurricane-rated doors and frames. Adding a lite kit? Consider that as well.  

Areas have different building codes to adhere to, and most of our custom products can be configured in various ways to suit your needs. If not specified correctly and early in the process, everything from hardware to lite kits to product door ratings can quickly complicate your order and project.

To help ensure accuracy, timely production of your order, and building code compliance, Special-Lite offers Configuration Worksheets for a wide selection of our products. This makes the estimating and ordering process as seamless and efficient as possible. The Estimating Process is essential. It kicks off our entire project life cycle and sets our customers and partners up for success when jobs go out to bid.

Our Configuration Worksheets outline the parameters of what many of our products can do. They are a huge time saver. Use them before filling out an order form.
