Exceptional Products

Special-Lite manufactures engineered architectural products, which include commercial entrance systems, interior aluminum (Type II) framing with swing or sliding aluminum framed doors, and FRP restroom partitions. Our interior and exterior complete entrance system products are fiberglass or aluminum flush doors with many door face texture options including wood grain, aluminum monumental (stile & rail) doors, fiberglass, and aluminum framing. Our engineered, made-to-order architectural products are used in new construction and renovation projects for educational, commercial, institutional, industrial and municipal applications. The company was founded in 1971 and pioneered the use of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) material for door skins in the early 1980’s, and today is the largest volume producer of commercial FRP doors in the United States.

Our professional staff assists our customers every step of the way—from reaching a live person every time you call, to product training at our factory, and installation support from our field technicians. We provide the services and support to bring their design ideas to life. Whether it is an exterior or interior entrance system, restroom partition, or interior wall/partition design, we create solutions to suit their application. Special-Lite products are promoted in the United States and Canada by independent sales representatives and distributed through selected door specialty companies, glass and glazing subcontractors, hardware distributors, and window replacement contractors.

Exceptional Manufacturing & Engineering

The Special-Lite approach to producing our products is unique in the industry. We combine the best aspects of traditional hands-on craftsmanship, innovative design, and advanced technology to make the toughest, longest-lasting doors possible. The high quality of our doors, framing, and restroom partitions is the result of the individual craftsmanship, attention to detail, and a personal commitment to quality that is simply not possible with mechanized, high-volume manufacturing.
