Special-Lite is excited to introduce our Hollow Metal Replacement FRP (HMR-FRP) Door. Unlike the custom commercial FRP doors we are known for, these doors will be available in four standard door sizes and priced comparable to commercial metal, steel, and hollow metal replacement doors.
A patented, innovative Lock Pocket that is adaptive to a cylindrical lock, mortise lock, or exit device adds to the versatility of this customer-focused option.
“The biggest issue with metal doors is that they rust, and you must replace them every couple of years. They also require regular painting and maintenance. The HMR-FRP door will not rust, doesn’t need to be painted, and is low maintenance. It will save a lot of time and money over the life of the door,” said Alex Esposito, Vice President of Product Engineering, Sales, and Marketing for Special-Lite.
Special-Lite HMR-FRP doors are lightweight and designed to compete directly with commercial steel, metal, and hollow metal replacement doors.
The Benefits of FRP
The construction of the company’s FRP doors makes them immune to moisture, so they will not rust. Plus, unlike traditional commercial metal doors, the HMR-FRP door features a Sandstone-textured light grey face sheet that resists dents and scratches. It also does not require painting, so it’s ready to install as soon as it arrives.
