What kind of warranty protection do you offer for your fiberglass wood grain doors compared to a real wood door?

Typically, most wood grain doors either don’t have a warranty or only extend to 1 year. Wood tends to warp and rot over time. Special-Lite offers a 5-year warranty on the finish, a 10-year structural guarantee, and a lifetime warranty on delamination or corner failure.

Can you accommodate the hardware I need for high-traffic use and security?

Choose doors designed for commercial hardware and high-cycle use with security in mind. Concealed Vertical Rod Exit devices are available on our SL-Series Wood Grain FRP Aluminum Hybrid doors, which are popular with church main entrances. Doors come with commercial hardware reinforcements specific to the hardware selected. On SL-Series Doors, you can even choose to have the hardware factory installed!

I want to create something unique; what are my customization options for fiberglass wood grains?

We are a custom door company, so the options are endless! Below are a couple of examples for inspiration.

  • With our SL Series Doors, we can split face sheets between the exterior and interior, giving you aluminum on the exterior and wood grain on the interior, opening up a lot of possibilities!
  • Our SL-18 can convert to a 4-panel door from a 6-panel, and a top half lite can become a 9-lite, 6-lite or 4-lite with our muntin options.
  • Not all doors are rectangular. We can provide curved top flush doors (SL-19 and SL-19-1) and add curved vision lite kits in custom entrances with few limitations other than height.

Don’t let these limit your imagination. Your door solution is just a conversation away with our Rep Locator!
