Why Commercial Hollow Metal Doors?
Hollow metal doors are recognized as a top value in the door industry, due to their extreme durability, performance, and cost. They often outlast wood commercial doors by over a decade while being less expensive and better insulated. This makes them a necessity for most commercial buildings.
These doors have earned a reputation as a workhorse that can handle the punishment doled out daily by the sheer number of people passing through them. Typically used on the exterior of a commercial structure or between major zones, they're often used in fire-rated openings with ratings of up to three hours.
They're also more secure because they're harder to beat or cut open than wood doors would typically be. This provides your business with an extra layer of protection from vandals, thieves, and those who would be up to mischief in your business's interior, protecting your company's assets.

What type of commercial hollow metal door is best for a building? Buildings, businesses, and operations are all different, so different types of doors are best based on the situation.
