Made from steel, they are perfect as protection from attacks and accidents. Blast doors are resistant to expansion and fire and they are designed to absorb pressure as well. They also happen to mitigate external hazards and can blend well with the building structure. Blast doors are usually utilized on areas/structures such as nuclear and waste-treatment plants, military and government buildings, banks, factories, and public locations.
Double Acting Doors
Also known as double swinging or impact traffic doors, they are bidirectional and they open with weight and push motions. They are ideal for fast two-way movements and serve as a barrier for noises/sounds as well as a visual separation. You might notice that restaurants use double acting doors to separate their kitchen from the dining area considering the former is hectic all the time and is always cluttered.
The doors’ panel cores can be made from wood or foam with aluminum, impact-resistant plastic or stainless steel. Besides kitchens, double acting doors are also used in schools, bars, hospitals, and supermarkets or retail shops.
Fiberglass Doors and Frames
If you want to upgrade your wooden door, fiberglass doors are the way to go. They can mimic the appearance of real wood and they are considered to be great heat insulators compared to steel doors. What’s more, they can withstand humid and cold areas, unlike wooden doors that swell when exposed to these elements. It may not be as cheap as other doors, but if you don’t want something low maintenance, a fiberglass door is the answer to that.
Serving as a ventilation for buildings, a louver is versatile and it can even be used for vehicles.

Choose from our louvers made from different materials including wood, aluminum, and metal.
